Baker Breaks Record with Iditarod Win PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 March 2011

Associated Press and APRN

            John Baker crossed the finish line first Tuesday in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race to reclaim the title of Iditarod champion for an Alaska Native musher.

            The 48-year-old Baker, of Kotzebue, steered his dog team down the main drag in Nome to win the 1,150-mile race from Anchorage, and get his name in the record books.

            He is the first Alaska Native musher to win the world's longest sled dog race since Jerry Riley did it in 1976.

            Baker also shattered, by exactly three hours, the race record held by four-time champion Martin Buser, who completed the 2002 race in eight days, 22 hours and 46 minutes. Baker completed the race in 8 days, 19 hours and 46 minutes.

            He said that beating the record didn't occur to him until early this morning. He finished third the year Buser set the previous record.

            Kodiak Representative Alan Austerman was among House Majority Caucus members who were asked about cruise ship and tourism funding at a press conference Monday:

            A 48-year-old skipper from Kodiak has died after apparently losing consciousness aboard his vessel Sunday night in Monashka Bay. Alaska State Troopers have identified the man as Alvin Holdiman and say foul play is not suspected.

             A Coast Guard helicopter lifted the skipper from the 35-foot Lady Taelyr at 10:15 p.m. Sunday night, but Holdiman passed away before reaching the hospital.

            Coast Guard spokeswoman Petty Officer Sara Francis says a crewmember aboard the boat called for help after finding the man unconscious and unresponsive.

             An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Kodiak flew to Monashka Bay and a rescue swimmer performed CPR on the man, but it was apparently too late to revive him.

            Coast Guard Petty Officer Jonathan Lally said Monday that family members would be retrieving the Lady Taelyr.

            An autopsy is pending and the case remains under investigation.

            With just weeks left in the legislative session, Governor Sean Parnell is again asking lawmakers to suspend the state motor fuels tax for two years. It doesn't look like it will happen.

            Little attention has been paid to the proposal this session except for a few hearings on the bill early on, with lawmakers questioning in part whether consumers would actually see a price drop at the pump if the tax were suspended.

            Parnell resurrected the issue last week, saying high gas prices necessitated another look at his proposal.

            But lawmakers have shown virtually no interest in taking it up, with major spending and oil-tax bills still pending.

            Today (Monday), House Majority Leader Alan Austerman of Kodiak said the governor's renewed call for action has not generated much discussion among his colleagues.

             Austerman made the comments during a Monday morning house majority press conference.
