More details have emerged on a Kodiak skipper convicted last week of poaching Pacific Cod along the Aleutian Chain. Seventy-three-year-old Thomas Millman, owner of the fishing vessel Four Daughters, pleaded guilty last Friday to four counts of illegally taking fish in closed waters. He was fined $117,000 and sentenced to four years probation. Millman now resides in the state of Minnesota.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan Schoder says the case shows the federal government's commitment to enforce fishing laws in Alaska.

The sentence was handed down by U.S. District Judge John Sedwick in Anchorage and the culmination of a multi-year investigation. The lead investigator was Special Agent Mike Killary of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Kodiak-based enforcement division. He said Millman was discovered fishing in closed waters after he accidentally logged himself fishing with his onboard electronic vessel monitoring system.

Killary says that despite being warned by NOAA officials Millman continued to take the Four Daughters into closed waters where he caught Pacific Cod and sold to a Akutan-based fish processor. In 2005 alone, he delivered a quarter million pounds of cod, valued at about $73,000.

            Alaska State Troopers subsequently caught the Four Daughters fishing in closed waters and alerted federal officials.

The area where Millman was fishing is closed to conserve a major food source for the protected Steller Sea Lion population.

Millman was prosecuted under the Lacey Act which allows federal prosecutors to charge suspected poachers in state waters. In a prepared statement, U.S. Attorney Karen Loeffler called the Lacey Act "an essential tool for protecting one of our nation's most valuable resources."

Millman's attorney, John Murtagh of Anchorage, declined to comment.

            Kodiak High School athletes have a lot of different sports to pick from when the school year kicks off: There's cross country running, swimming, volleyball, football and, most recently added to the list of options: tennis.

            Kodiak is the only team in its conference, so they play very few matches - however, they are guaranteed a spot in the state championship tournament. In fact, when Kodiak started its program, it allowed the Alaska School Activities Association to hold a state championship for the first time, because there were enough regions participating.

            Representatives from the Public Safety Employees Association were in Kodiak over the weekend going door-to-door with information promoting Proposition One. That's the measure that will be on the October Municipal Election ballot, which if passed, will allow city of Kodiak employees to decide for themselves if they should be unionized.

            Jim Quinto is with the Juneau Police Department. He spoke with KMXT's Jay Barrett yesterday.

            It was another full weekend for Kodiak High School athletes. The Bears' football team was in Kenai facing the defending state champions; the volleyball team was at home against Skyview, and the cross country squad competed at the Palmer Invite.

            James Osowski was over eight-seconds faster than the field in winning the five-kilometer race in Palmer with a time of 16-miuntes 11.82 seconds. Nathan Deer was sixth, Cole Christiansen was eighth and Jordan Fogle was 12th, as the Bears took first place with 45 points.  Caleb Nymeyer was 18th and Jake Salus was 23rd. Lathrop was second, followed by West Valley, Wasilla, Kenai, Palmer and Colony.

            On the girls' side, Kodiak star Jaymi Bethea finished sixth in 19-minutes 19-seconds, 31-seconds off the pace.  Sarah Ng was 12th.  The Lady Bears took fifth with 127 points. Wasilla won with 46. 

            The Kodiak volleyball team won its conference match in four games Friday night against the Skyview Panthers, but was swept in three games on Saturday in a non-conference match. 

            On the gridiron, the Kardinals showed why they are the defending state champions by dominating the Bears in Kenai, 29-to-nothing. The Bears' play-off hopes continue to dim, as they fall to 0-and-3 in the Northern Lights Conference. They are 2-and-4 overall, with two games to play: Houston here for homecoming this Saturday and closing on the road the week after at Skyview.

Kodiak-Based Fisherman Fined for Fishing Violations PDF Print E-mail

            A commercial fisherman based in Kodiak has been sentenced to four years' probation and fined over $100,000 after pleading guilty to Lacey Act violations.

            The U.S. attorney's office says 73-year-old Thomas Millman, of Minnesota, admitted to illegally catching more than 250,000 pounds of Pacific cod, worth more than $73,000, in 2005. The office says Millman caught the fish in a region along the Aleutian Islands closed by the state to protect the stellar sea lion. It cites court documents that allege Millman violated the Lacey Act by commercially selling the ill-gained fish.

            Millman is the owner and operator of the fishing vessel "Four Daughters," which is homeported in Kodiak.

            U.S. Attorney Karen Loeffler says Millman pleaded guilty and was sentenced Friday. He also was ordered to forfeit more than $117,000 in proceeds of his fishing activities.
