            An assembly chamber-full of Kodiak residents used their first amendment right of free speech to make themselves heard by the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly last (Thursday) night. The topic of such great interest to the community was the proposed curbside trash pick up contract with Alaska Waste.

            The public hearing started with over 40 comments made by members of the public and ended with the assembly members voting 6-1 to postpone a vote on the contract until the next regular meeting. In the meantime, discussion about the contract will continue as the assembly and the borough staff work to hammer out adjustments to it.

            The following is just a small sample of some of the public comments and assembly discussion heard at last night's three-and-a-half-hour long meeting:

            One of the comments that seemed to resonate with many people at the meeting was made by the first speaker, Rob Baer.

            Of the 42 people who testified, Assemblywoman Louise Stutes calculated that three were not advocating either for or against curbside pick up, 38 were against it, and only one person was in favor of it.

The solid waste collection contract will come up for a vote again at the next regular assembly meeting on March 4th.

            A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew conducted a medevac of a 38-year-old Filipino man from a car-carrier this (Thursday) morning. The 518-foot Modern Express was about 58 miles south of Kodiak at the time.

            Raine Canua reportedly was found disoriented by his shipmates in his cabin late Wednesday. The shipping company of the vessel contacted the 17th Coast Guard District command center about 7:45 p.m. reporting Canua was suffering from symptoms of stroke. 

            The helicopter crew successfully hoisted Canua about 8:48 a.m. this (Thursday) morning and safely delivered him to awaiting medical personnel in Kodiak, who transferred him to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center around 9:45 a.m. His present condition is unknown.

            Weather conditions on scene at the time of the hoist included 43 mph winds and 22 foot seas with light rain.

            The Korean-flagged vessel was en route from Portland, Oregon, to Busan, South Korea.

            This is the second hoist from a freighter in a week for Air Station Kodiak crews. They also performed a medevac five days ago of a Filipino crewman off the 656-foot Panamanian-flagged cargo vessel Stellar Harvest 200 miles southwest of Dutch Harbor.
