After Rescue, A Jail Cell PDF Print E-mail

    An Air Station Kodiak helicopter crew rescued three men from a hunting trip gone bad on Sunday morning, but for one of those men, things went from bad to ... well, maybe not worse, but he was arrested by the Alaska State Troopers after returning to Kodiak.
    At about 8:30 Sunday morning the troopers received a report that three hunters at Windy Lake had lost their tent during the storm overnight and were becoming hypothermic. Both the troopers and Sea Hawk Air contacted the Coast Guard, which launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to retrieve the men.
    According to the Coast Guard in Kodiak, the Jayhawk was able to land near where the men were and they were flown to safety. After returning to Kodiak, they were examined by emergency medical personnel, and then one of them was arrested for an outstanding reckless driving and failure to appear warrant from Soldotna.
    Thirtyfive-year-old Zebadiah Carpenter of Kenai was arrested by troopers and lodged at the Kodiak Jail without bail pending his arraignment.
    Despite any past lapses in judgment, Coast Guard Lieutenant Commander Doug Watson said the men did everything right by planning ahead, maintaining contact with their charter airline and rescuers, and most importantly not over-estimating their ability to endure the elements.
    Conditions at Windy Lake lived up to its name, with nearly 50 mph winds, intermittent showers and a temperature of 45-degrees.

    Two health centers in Kodiak and more than two dozen others in Alaska will receive federal funding to hire additional doctors and expand primary care services.
    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said the $5.3 million in funding through the federal health care law will help the centers reach more than 7,700 new patients.
    The Kodiak Area Native Association will receive $187,000, while the Kodiak Island Health Care Foundation is in line for $196,142.
    The Department of Health estimates the funding will allow for longer hours and expanded services, including dental, vision or mental and behavioral health services. It also will allow for the hiring of 40 additional staff members across the state.

    At Thursday night’s Kodiak City Council meeting, two members and the mayor responded to some harsh criticism when the anti-Defense Authorization Act resolution failed last month on a tie-breaking vote by Mayor Pat Branson.
    Councilman Gabriel Saravia said he received what he described as a threatening communication from a local supporter of PANDAA, the “People Against the National Defense Authorization Act,” trying to coerce him to change his vote.
    “I received an e-mail from the PANDAA group asking to make a deal with me to publicly announce I was wrong in not voting for the resolution. I then yes with the council’s next vote on the resolution, and if I do this they will do everything in their power to never have another public position in this town ever,” Saravia said. “This e-mail was threatening, and I would like this group to know the resolution was voted on and I voted what I see was right. And the resolution cannot come back for another year. I would like them and the public to know I do not make deals. I vote, and I will continue to vote what I think is right for the citizens of Kodiak.”
    The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 contains language members of PANDAA interpret as allowing the federal government to detain or kill American citizens without due process. Others disagree, saying the language in the Act only applies to terrorists. Dan Johnson, founder of the People Against the NDAA, told KMXT in May that the term terrorist is “now being applied to anyone the government considers a threat.”
    A resolution to denounce the Act came before the Kodiak City Council last month, but tied on a three-three vote, which the mayor had to break, voting no. Councilmen Randy Bishop, Rich Walker and Terry Haines all voted in favor of the denouncement.

    Alaska Airlines began flying smaller, turboprop planes between Anchorage and Fairbanks earlier this year. They also flew summer routes between Anchorage and Kodiak.  
    Alaska Vice President Marilyn Romano says they’re cheaper to operate.
    “It’s a cost savings because you’re not using a jet that’s designed for a longer flight, and running it back and forth on a very short segment. And so by doing that, then you take it to the next level. Our ultimate goal was to bring down our costs. Then we could, at the same time, look at bringing down fares.”
    Romano says some cheaper fares went into place last spring and more are coming. She says they’re separate from steep discounts on summer Seattle-Juneau flights that came after Delta Air Lines began competing on that route.
