            Exercise Northern Edge 2011, which has been going on for the last two weeks, brought thousands of military personnel from all five branches of the military to the Gulf of Alaska. Some of them have been media specialists, trying to convey the unique challenges of conducting exercises on and around Kodiak Island.

            One short video produced by the Air Force features servicemen discussing the use of remote communications equipment and the portable "three-dimensional air defense radar," operated by the Marines near Jewel Beach on the Kodiak Coat Guard base. The video is hosted by Senior Airman Alina Richard.

            The public affairs office at Coast Guard Base Kodiak did some work in association with Northern Edge, but Petty Officer 1st Class Sara Frances said it was minimal. Several Coast Guard cutters, including the 418-foot National Security Cutter Bertholf, and the 110-foot Valdez-based patrol boat Long Island.

            Northern Edge started June 13th, and is scheduled to wrap up Friday.

            The Kodiak salmon harvest has jumped over the 600,000 mark for the season. The harvest on Wednesday was 74,596, boosted by 55,000 sockeye and 13,000-plus chum salmon.

             The total in-season harvest estimate for all five species of salmon stands at 671,804. All but 60,000 of those are red salmon, with the majority of the remainder - 51,000 - made up of chum salmon. The pink catch so far is about 8,700 fish - though the season is expected to go gangbusters when the humpies run starts in earnest. There have been nearly 12-hundred king salmon delivered and 19 early silvers.

            The daily harvest on Tuesday was 9,100.

            The best performing district in the Kodiak Management Area is by far the Cape Igvak and Wide Bay, with over 434,000 salmon delivered through Wednesday.

            You may have noticed black smoke billowing from the Coast Guard base late yesterday morning. While the ominous-looking clouds did act as somewhat of an eyesore on an otherwise sunny day, their presence should be a reassurance that local firemen are training hard.

            The smoke came from a pit fire training for airport crash fire crews. Coast Guard Fire Chief Jeff Halcomb explained what exactly pit fire training entails.

Alaska Amber Alert Heard on KMXT Resolved PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 23 June 2011

amberalert.gifThe Associated Press and This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            Anchorage police say an 18-year-old woman reportedly abducted Wednesday afternoon by several men has been located uninjured. The Department of Public Safety issued an Amber Alert, though it was later canceled. Several hours later, the young woman and a male suspect were located and taken to police headquarters for questioning.

            KMXT listeners heard the Amber Alert during our broadcast of Alaska News Nightly.

            While it may seem unlikely that the victim or the alleged abductor would show up in Kodiak before being found by police on the mainland, the Alaska AMBER Alert system broadcasts throughout the state on the chance that the victim is moved quickly to another location.

            The AMBER Alert program is designed to galvanize as many people as quickly as possible in those critical first minutes after an abduction. The mass broadcast of specific information on an abduction hopefully will lead to the safe recovery of the child victim. The alert can also be activated for adults with known mental or physical disabilities.

            The program was originally named for Amber Hagerman, a nine-year-old who was abducted and murdered in Arlington, Texas in 1996. It has since been dubbed "America's Missing: Broadcasting Emergency Response" - or A-M-B-E-R - in her memory.
