            Some of the members of that committee discussed the process and what's coming next:

            About 60 people gathered in Kodiak this week for the Second Child Abuse Prevention Summit. The event was put on by KANA, the Kodiak Island Housing Authority, the Sun'aq Tribe of Kodiak, the Native Village of Afognak, Koniag Incorporated and the Alaska Office of Children's Services.

            One of the keynote speakers at the conference was Doctor Linda Chamberlain of Homer. Chamberlain is the founding director of the Alaska family violence prevention project. She's an epidemiologist who specializes in childhood exposure to violence and brain development.

            On Monday night Chamberlain gave a public talk on the affects of violence on childhood brain development. Through digital imagery and examples, Chamberlain explained how violence and stress causes a child's brain to revert to "survival mode" which results in lower level brain function.

            Chamberlain also explained that the emotional development of a child starts very early on.

            A Kodiak resident has been charged with allegedly embezzling nearly three-quarters of a million dollars from the state.

            According to state troopers, Chona Agtarap may have stolen 724,000 dollars while working for the State of Alaska Health and Social Services Division of Public Assistance.

Last week, the Alaska Bureau of Investigation received a report that the 37 year old Agtarap may have stolen the money from the state over the course of five years while she was working as a regional case reviewer in Anchorage.

            An investigation led to the arrest of Agtarap who worked in Anchorage and travelled on weekends to her home in Kodiak. The investigation determined that she issued new state treasury warrants to herself under a slightly different name and then mailed the checks to a post office box in Kodiak. The checks were then deposited into several accounts at two local banks. Investigators conducted interviews in Juneau and analyzed computer records for evidence. Agtarap was interviewed Wednesday at her office, which is located in the Frontier building in Anchorage.

On Thursday, a search warrant was obtained that resulted in the seizure of property in Kodiak.

The spokesperson for the Alaska State Troopers is Megan peters:

            Eight Alaska-based Coast Guardsmen from Air Station Kodiak will be awarded the American Helicopter Society's prestigious William J. Kossler Award at the American Helicopter Society Forum in Phoenix in May for saving the lives of seven commercial fishermen during two different rescues in 2009.
             Commander Shawn Tripp, Lieutenant. David McCown, flight mechanic Dennis Dewinter and rescue swimmer Eric Stoecker are being recognized for their rescue of two men from the fishing vessel American Way, grounded on Aghiyuk Island on January 4, 2009.
             The crew battled 500-foot ceilings, three-mile visibility, driving snow, and zero degree temperatures to rescue the stranded fishermen. They were safely hoisted from a narrow strip of beach next to a 300-foot vertical cliff in steady 58 mph winds.
             And in a grounding on Saint Paul Island in March a year ago, Lieutenant John Bartel, Lieutenant Commander Craig Neubecker, flight mechanic Chad Redmond, and rescue swimmer Alexis Torres, rescued five crewmembers from the fishing vessel Mar-Gun.
             The men were hoisted in visibility of a half mile, with a 200 foot ceiling, and blowing snow, as waves rocked the vessel and crashed over its decks.
             The Captain William J. Kossler Award is given for achievement in practical application or operation of rotary wing aircraft. This program was initiated in 1944 and over the years has paid tribute to the leaders in the vertical flight industry.
