           The second annual Kodiak Coast Walk is set for this weekend. The event, sponsored by Kodiak Island Trails Network, or ITN, provides bags to folks wanting to clean up some of the island’s 81 beaches along the road system. Items are then delivered to ITN, who will sort and store the marine debris, which isn’t accepted at the landfill.
           To get an understanding of what kind of debris folks will be picking up on beaches this weekend, KMXT sent reporter Brianna Gibbs to clean up the Buskin Beach with ITN’s Director of Marine Programs, Tom Pogson.
           The two spent less than 30 minutes cleaning 40 feet of beach at the Buskin River earlier this week, which resulted in roughly 35 pounds of debris. It was a small glimpse of what’s out there on Kodiak’s beaches, and folks can help with clean up efforts during the second annual Coast Walk this weekend.
           People can pick up bags between 8 a.m. and noon in the parking lot of the Little School of Dance on Saturday and Sunday. There they can also look at a map of Kodiak beaches and sign up for where they’d like to go, that way there isn’t any overlap. Then, between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. full bags can be dropped off at Pier II in the fenced area north of the Horizon office.
           There will also be a Coast Walk kickoff barbecue at the Fort Abercrombie State Park group shelter on Friday from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. It is a potluck, so bring a dish to share. Bags and maps will be provided there.

           A Kodiak woman was transported to Anchorage on Monday for treatment of injuries sustained when she was hit by a car on Mill Bay Road.
           According to a press release from the Kodiak Police Department witnesses say 67-year-old Julia Wiley was waiting to cross Mill Bay from the corner of Thorshiem Street. Wiley crossed when a vehicle stopped to allow her but was then struck by an oncoming Jeep, driven by 18-year-old Blake Still.
           Wiley was transported to Anchorage with a broken leg and multiple fractures to her hips.
           The release said Still was issued citations for driving without insurance and failure to exercise due care to avoid a collision. His mother, Elizabeth Still, was in the vehicle when the accident occurred and was cited for having an open container of alcohol.
           Police say an investigation determined that neither alcohol or speed was a factor in the incident.

One Dead After Boat Refrigeration Leaks Chemicals PDF Print E-mail

           A refrigeration leak aboard a fishing vessel in St. Herman Harbor left one fisherman hospitalized and another dead yesterday.
           The Kodiak Police Department and fire and rescue personnel responded to a report of the Freon leak aboard the boat Alpine Cove. Freon is a caustic chemical used to keep refrigeration systems cold on boats and also in some air conditioning systems in cars.
           A press release from the police department said five crewmembers were evacuated from the boat and officers provided immediate medical attention until EMS personnel arrived. Two crewmembers were ultimately transported to the hospital where 30-year-old Cody Cecil of Everett, Wash., was pronounced dead.
            The other crewmember, 56-year-old Francis Rutten of Snohomish, Wash., is still being treated at Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center for exposure to Freon.
           Nearby vessels were evacuated yesterday by harbormaster staff as a precaution to the chemical release.
           A preliminary investigation revealed that repair work was being done to the Alpine Cove on Tuesday night, but it is unclear if that work is related to the Freon leak. The incident is still under investigation by the police department and the Marine Safety Detachment of the U.S. Coast Guard.

           Alaska’s oldest building has captured the interest of the Historic American Building Survey. Crews are in town this week to document the structure of the Baranov Museum, which was built by the Russian-American Company in the early 1800s.
           Tiffany Brunson is the director of the museum and said the Historic American Building Survey, also known as HABS, documents historical buildings around the country and is run by three different agencies, primarily the National Park Service.
           “So what they’ll do is they’re actually bringing digital building survey equipment to come out and survey the Barnov Museum – the entire structure inside and out, and create architectural drawings essentially for the Historic American Building Survey.”  
           Those drawings are then stored in the Library of Congress and will be available to the public.
            “It’s also of course available to us in the Park Service so that we have really good, really detailed architectural drawings of our building.”
