            Kodiak Republican House Majority Leader Alan Austerman says he's not giving up on a state-funded effort to study the potential impacts of the proposed Pebble Mine near Iliamna Lake.

            Three-quarters of a million dollars was appropriated last year by the legislature to conduct an independent study. But those funds have languished as lawmakers have failed to decide how best to approach the study. If it's not allocated by the end of the session it could revert to the general fund.

            Austerman says lawmakers are continuing to debate whether to put the study out to bid through a request for proposal - an R-F-P - or have it done by the National Academy of Sciences which he says he would be more objective.

            The Kodiak City Council is considering further criminalizing so-called "gypsy" cabs - that's unlicensed taxi services in the community. During Tuesday evening's work session the city heard from licensed cab drivers who complained that fly-by-night operations are depriving licensed cab drivers of their livelihood and the city of its revenue.

            The city is in the midst of overhauling its taxi ordinance and fine-tuning licensing requirements. During discussions, the council heard testimony that catching unlicensed drivers involves the same level of police resources as a narcotics sting. And as the current law sets a maximum fine of $300, there's apparently little to deter scofflaws.        

            Councilman Tom Walters said he'd be in favor of making unlicensed taxi operations a misdemeanor offense that could include the threat of jail time. City staff were directed to revisit the ordinance and come back with proposals at a later meeting.

            When the radar goes out on a Coast Guard Cutter in the middle of the Bering Sea, it's someone at the Electronic System Support Unit in Kodiak that gets the call to provide tech support. The same goes for all manner of Coast Guard communications, computers and other modern technology needs around the state.

            But soon that first call for service will likely go through Juneau rather than Kodiak. The E-S-U, as it's called, will be moving, along with its commander, Lane Johnson, to Juneau. Services provided out of Kodiak, however, shouldn't change, according to Lieutenant Dennis Good, the administrative officer of the ESU.
