            An unidentified teenage girl was injured when she was struck by a bullet from a firearm as it was apparently being unloaded. The 16-year-old Kodiak girl was hit in the buttock by the round on Sunday in Chiniak, reportedly while the firearm operator was trying to clear the weapon of bullets.Messages left with the troopers about what kind of firearm was involved were not returned Thursday.

            Alaska State Troopers were notified at about 5:30 Sunday afternoon by Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center staff of the shooting victim being treated in the emergency room. She suffered non-life threatening injuries and was released the same day. After interviewing her, troopers determined the incident occurred several hours earlier at a cabin in Chiniak.

            At about 7:30, troopers contacted a 24-year-old man who was present during the shooting. He was arrested, but for driving under the influence, not the shooting. He was jailed on $500 bail. The investigation into the shooting continues.

            In the wake of Senator Ted Stevens' death Monday in a plane crash near Dillingham, people from throughout the state and nation have honored and shared their memories of him and the work he did over the course of 40-years in the U.S. Senate. But not all of it has been positive.

            Alvin Felzenberg, writing in the U.S. News and World Report online, called Stevens "... the personification of arrogance, a bully, a walking argument for term and even age limits...."

            In his article posted Wednesday, Felzenberg, a teacher and author, who was the spokesman for the 9/11 Commission, decried the politics of Stevens and the late Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia as those of greed, as they steered money from the powerful appropriation committee to their states.

            Stevens was also a controversial figure in fisheries policy. In the 1970s, Stevens, working with Senator Warren Magnuson of Washington State, moved American territorial waters out to 200 miles. Before that, foreign fishing boats could harvest seafood within sight of U.S. shores. But in later years, when he pushed through rationalization, and with it catch shares for fishermen and processor shares for seafood companies, his popularity wavered in many fishing communities. Especially among fishermen who lost their jobs through consolidation of fishing effort, and the merchants in the towns that lost the money the fishermen brought in.

            Kodiak's Rhonda Maker, an outspoken opponent of catch shares and rationalization policy, called into APRN's Talk of Alaska with Steven Heimel this (Thursday) morning during a show remembering the late senator.

            More than 100 people from all over came to Kodiak this week for the annual St. Herman's Pilgrimage to Spruce Island. 

            Father Herman was America's first Russian Orthodox Saint. He lived much of his life on Spruce Island where he ran an orphanage for Native children from around Kodiak.

            Father Herman and several other monks arrived in Kodiak in September, 1794 during the Russian Period.

            The annual pilgrimage to the site of a small church brings people from all regions of the world. This year included a contingent of Russians, and the Metropolitan of the Russian Orthodox Church in America, who lives in Washington, D.C.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall spoke with Metropolitan Jonah, while onboard the charter boat Sea Breeze on the way back from Spruce Island.
