            The Kodiak City Council has a short, but potentially lively, agenda for its work session tonight.

            The council will discuss plans to send Kodiak Chamber of Commerce economic development specialist Trevor Brown to the North Pacific Fishery Management Council meeting next month in Sitka, and what his message from the city should be.

            The council will be introduced to the Marsh and McLennan agency, which, according to its website, "serves the insurance needs of middle market companies in the United States."

            Also on the agenda will be a request from the Kodiak Historical Society for an increase in its funding from the city.

            A kayaker is alive after a brush with hypothermia in the cold waters off Kodiak Island over the weekend. The Alaska State Troopers report 60-year-old Gale H. Armstrong of Eagle River capsized his kayak in Narrow Strait Saturday afternoon. Troopers report he had been kayaking in the strait near Spruce Island when his kayak overturned. Unable to get to shore or back into the kayak, he called 911 with his cell phone.

            Alaska Wildlife Troopers responded with the patrol vessel "Ethics," from the Kodiak harbor, while State Troopers and State Parks Rangers directed them to Armstrong from Miller Point in Fort Abercrombie.

            The crew from the patrol boat picked Armstrong up at 4:20 p.m. and transported him to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center for treatment of hypothermia. A hospital spokeswoman says Armstrong was later released.

            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly held a public hearing about school district funding at last week's regular meeting.

            At issue was the minimum amount that the assembly should contribute to the fiscal year 2011 budget. During an earlier work session, assembly members expressed a desire to maintain the same level of funding that it contributed last year.

            The school district had asked assembly members for a local funding increase from $10,290,000 to $10,713,469. The higher amount was requested in order to pay for the hiring of two math intervention specialists and a technology support person.

            During the public hearing, several people spoke in favor of the higher level funding including representative from the villages who participated through video conference. In person, the assembly heard from several citizens including third grade teacher Cat Ellen DeVries. She shared success stories from Main Elementary school where the district's only "math interventionist" has been working with students.
