In the spring a gardener's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of planting PDF Print E-mail

            Saturday is officially the first day of spring for 2010. Here in the northern hemisphere, spring officially begins when the sun moves north across the equator.

            For some, the spring equinox means planting time which is why Sustainable Kodiak is hosting a gardening workshop at Kodiak College tonight.

            Conducting the workshop is Marion Owen. She offered a preview of some of the topics she'll cover at tonight's workshop.

            Owen teaches organic gardening and might be described as obsessed when it comes to her pursuit of knowledge about growing things. But, she says, that mindset is not a requirement for gardening.

            Friday night's workshop is free and open to everyone. It begins at 6:30 in room 130 of the Benny Benson building at Kodiak College.

Storm-Damaged Roads to be Repaired PDF Print E-mail

            Repairs to portions of Rezanof Drive and the Chiniak Highway are planned for this summer. The work is a result of the damage caused by flooding and landslides in October and November of 2009.

            Five portions of the road will be repaired by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.

            Because the work falls under the scope of the National Historic Preservation Act as well as wetland and floodplain protections, the D-O-T is soliciting comments on the proposed repairs.

The repairs include adding riprap at milepost five-point-five to repair erosion around the culvert at Devil's Creek. Riprap will also be added to the streambed at milepost nine-point-six of Rezanof Drive to improve fish passage. At milepost 10-point-nine, the culvert at Paramanoff Creek will be upgraded from six feet to eight feet in diameter. On the Chiniak Highway, some debris will be excavated and riprap will be added to stabilize the road embankment at milepost six-point-two and 12-point-four.

Work will also be conducted in several fish streams. A small amount of wetland fill may be required at milepost 10-point-9 of Rezanof Drive where an existing cross culvert will be replaced. Some vegetation may be cleared to provide equipment access.

Public comments and recommendations for the project will be accepted by D-O-T until April 1st.

The work is expected to begin this summer and traffic delays or temporary closures are likely.

            Coming up this week, the Sitka Sound Sac Roe Herring Fishery is ripe; the governor nominates a pair of Alaskans to terms on the North Pacific Council; and going to the Boston Seafood show all the way from Togiak. All that, and how do you tell a caveman from a crab fisherman? We had help from KCAW's Robert Woolsey in Sitka, KDLG's Mike Mason in Dillingham, KUCB's Anne Hillman in Unalaska; KTOO's Casey Kelly in Juneau, and KBBI's Aaron Selbig in Homer.

            Sunshine and blue sky made the perfect backdrop for Kodiak's annual Saint Patrick's Day parade. About a dozen, green-clad revelers took part in the small but enthusiastic event.

KMXT's Diana Gish was there to capture the start of Kodiak's tribute to the "other Emerald Isle."
