            You've no doubt heard the stories of crab fishermen who ripped up $100 dollar bills just because they could. Or the one about the guy who paid cash for a new shiny tricked-out pickup and was so drunk he forgot he'd bought it.

            Yes, those are true stories.

            If you're into good fishing stories about the wild and amazing days of Kodiak's King crab fishery, you'll be happy to learn that the popular radio series about the fishery is about to begin another round of new programs.

            The award-winning program "When Crab Was King: An Oral History of the Kodiak King Crab Fishery" documents the history of Kodiak's King crab fishery from its very earliest days in the 40s to its crash in the early 80s.

            A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak HH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew medevac'd an Israeli crewman off the 964-foot container ship Zim Haifa about 97 miles east of Cold Bay Monday. 

            Forty-eight-year-old Aleksey Tabachnikov reportedly injured his left hand after machinery dropped on it. The Coast Guard received a call Sunday afternoon requesting a medevac for the crewmember.

            Due to the distance of the Zim Haifa at the time of call, the Coast Guard recommended the vessel sail toward Cold Bay so it would be in range of the Dolphin helicopter, which was forward deployed there.

            The helicopter crew hoisted Tabachnikov about 3 p.m. Monday and transferred him to Cold Bay where he was transferred to medical clinic. He was reported in stable condition.

            The Zim Haifa is dry cargo Israeli-flagged vessel and is on its way from South Korea to the Panama Canal.

            Weather at the time of the hoist included rain with a northeast wind of 10 to 25 mph.

            Four Kodiak fishermen are in good shape after being forced to abandon their burning fishing boat five miles south of Sitkinak Island on Sunday morning. The crew of the 52-foot Nakat were hoisted from their liferaft around 10:30 a.m. by an Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk after being alerted by the crew's EPIRB, which went off about 8:30 a.m.

            Skipper Joe Macinko told the Coast Guard the fire started in the boat's galley stove and kept flaring up as he tried to extinguish it.

             A recent language study has offered more proof to support the connection between central Asia and the native populations of North America. While the theory has been around for a few centuries, scientists have never come to full agreement about it.

            A new book published by the University of Alaska is now adding more weight to the theory and is creating a buzz among academics from multiple disciplines. The book examines culture change, language and genetics and is called The Dene-Yeniseian Connection. It's a publication of the University of Alaska Fairbanks' department of Anthropology and the Alaska Native Language Center.

            James Kari  is a professor emeritus of the University and one of the book's editors. He appeared on KMXT's Talk of the Rock where he explained the hypothesis that the book addresses.
