            A senate field hearing on the "Strategic Importance of the Arctic in U.S. Policy" took place in Anchorage Thursday. David Benton of the Marine Conservation Alliance in Juneau offered testimony at the hearing. He endorsed the plan by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council and by NOAA's Fisheries service to put a freeze on the expansion of commercial fishing in federal Arctic waters.

 

--    (Arctic Fishing 1    :50 "...comm.fisheries started.")

            Benton also told the panel that its urgent to learn from and avoid fishing policy problems from the past.

--   (Arctic Fishing 2     1:17    "...of interest to the U.S.")

            Now that the U.S. commerce department has adopted the plan to halt expansion of commercial fishing in the Arctic, Benton feels that the U.S. is in a good position to work towards a cooperative international agreement.

--    (Arctic Fishing 3     :21           "...in the high arctic.")

            Two Leisnoi Corporation board members have resigned in the wake of recent actions by board chairman Frank Pagano. Earlier this month, a writ of execution was filed that resulted in the emptying of eleven Leisnoi shareholders' personal bank accounts. Those eleven were also plaintiffs in a lawsuit that had been filed against Pagano and the other members of the Leisnoi board of directors.

            Shannon Johnson and Jeff Chester have resigned from the Leisnoi board. Chester spoke with KMXT's Diana Gish from his current home in Cave Creek, Arizona:

 --                    (2 Leisnoi Resignations                        "...in our corporate image.")

             That was Jeff Chester, former board member of the Leisnoi Corporation who resigned in protest of the board's action against eleven shareholders. A second board member, Shannon Johnson, also resigned her position.

On Monday August 17, Mike Walleri, the attorney for the eleven shareholders filed a motion to add the issue of the confiscated attorney's fees to the shareholders appeal of the case.
