            A study released this fall by the McDowell Group shows a significant impact on the state's salmon harvest by Alaska's many hatcheries. The study was conducted on behalf of the Prince William Sound Aquaculture Corporation, which operates five hatcheries in the sound and Copper River region.

            This last season, Prince William Sound fish accounted for 30 percent of the statewide salmon harvest, with a total worth of $317 million. Labor income alone accounted for $67 million, while creating 2,750 jobs in more than 30 communities. The study also shows that $1.8 million in fish tax went to the state and $1 million in revenue was collected by local governments.

            Prince William Sound Aquaculture general manager Dave Reggiani said in a written statement that the hatcheries are critical to the sustainability of jobs and strong local economies.

            Soon after the McDowell report came out, the state's largest fishermen's group, the United Fishermen of Alaska, came out in favor of the hatcheries. Mark Vinsel is the UFA's executive director. He agrees that hatchery runs benefit all user groups who target salmon.

            Funding for three public art projects will be made available early next year and the state's arts council is accepting proposals from artists. But as KMXT's Jacob Resneck reports, one of the largest projects on Kodiak Island has apparently not been participating in the state-mandated program: the city's soon-to-be-completed police station and jail.

            As we reported last week, Kodiak's Larry LeDoux will not be retained as the Alaska State Commissioner of Education and Early Childhood Development under the new Parnell administration. Parnell, who won his own full term as governor earlier this month, is making sweeping changes in the cabinet he inherited from his predecessor, and asked all of his commissioners for letters of resignation.

            Reached Monday at a military education conference in San Antonio, LeDoux said he understands Parnell's wish to have a cabinet of his own:.
