            A NOAA fisheries observer is being punished for sexually harassing and creating a hostile work environment for another observer. Benjamin Lewis Michlig worked for Saltwater Incorporated and Alaskan Observers Incorporated and is originally from Wisconsin.

            He admitted to harassing another observer while living in a bunkhouse in Kodiak in September, 2008.

            The NOAA Office of Law Enforcement's Alaska Division issued Michlig a 10,000-dollar fine with 9,000 suspended. He won't have to pay the suspended amount if, after five years he has committed no similar offenses. He also is prohibited from working as an observer anywhere in the country for the next 10 years.

            In a written statement, NOAA Special Agent Frank Bonadonna said it was important that the entire commercial fishing industry understand that harassment of fisheries observers will be punished, whether it's done by a vessel captain, crewman or another observer.

            Federal fisheries observers are responsible for collecting real-time catch and bycatch data that is used to help manage fisheries in federal waters.

           An artist who hails from Kodiak has received an award from the United States Artist Fellows program. Alutiiq mask maker Perry Eaton was selected to receive a grant for 50,000 dollars for his work in the craft. Eaton has been focused on the traditional art form since 2000. He was one of the artists who travelled to Russia with the Autiiq Museum to see the original masks on display there. He said he then became "artistically fixated" on creating Alutiiq masks after seeing pictures of them taken by Helen Simeonoff during her visit to the Chateau-Musee in France. Eaton said he was motivated by his love for the masks. He credits artists such as Jacob Simeonoff for paving the way for other Alutiiq mask makers.

            In comments he wrote following his selection for the honor, Eaton said that he's inspired by all Alaska Native culture and that he's glad the cultures are becoming more widely valued. He mentioned groups in Kodiak that he says are contributing to the increased interest and appreciation of Alutiiq culture such as the Alutiiq Museum, the Kodiak Area Native Association, the dance groups, all of the tribal and village corporations, as well as the school district.

            Cell phone service for AT & T customers around Alaska has been restored after being down for several hours yesterday (Wednesday).

            Colleen Smith with AT & T's PR firm Fleishman Hillard says a commercial power outage caused a hardware issue affecting 2-G service in parts of Alaska. She didn't say where the power outage occurred, what type of hardware was affected, or how long it took to fix. The interruption did not affect AT & T's 3G service, which is available only in Anchorage.
