The last two days we heard from Alaska First Unity Party candidate Bill Walker, and yesterday from Democrat Byron Mallott, who at the time of the interview was a candidate for governor. As you may have heard, he’s now Walker’s running mate. Today, we’ll hear from the incumbent, Republican Sean Parnell, speaking with KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs and Kodiak Daily Mirror Reporter Julie Herrmann.

Read the Gulf of Alaska Environmental Impact Statement here

    The U-S Navy is seeking feedback on proposed training operations in the Gulf of Alaska. It’s a continuation of projects that have been going on for several years.
    The Navy is currently conducting trainings in the Gulf of Alaska under the project name Northern Edge. It’s working on setting up the next phase of that project, to begin in 2016.
    Alex Stone is the project manager for the Gulf of Alaska Environmental Impact Statement, or EIS. He has a background in environmental science.
    “One of the reasons why we do these EISs is a little confusing. Associated with the EIS we get a permit from the National Marine Fisheries Service and that permit is good for five years. So, the EIS that we do supports them issuing the permit.”
    The Navy is currently training under a permit for 2011 to 2016.
    “But, because the EIS process takes so long, we’re already working on the EIS to support the next permit which will start after the current one expires.”
    Liane Nakahara is a public affairs specialist for the Navy. She says at this point, the process is about half way done.
     “We just completed the draft EIS and that’s kind of in the  middle of the entire process. So, we took all the comments that came in during the scoping phase, which was a couple years ago, and used those comments to develop the draft analysis, which is out for public review right now.”
    Stone says this looks at the impact of training activities that are part of an annual project that includes several branches of the military.
     “The Navy brings up an aircraft carrier strike group to participate in a joint exercise with the Army and Air Force and what this EIS looks at, of course, is the Navy part of it, which takes place in the Gulf of Alaska.”
    Stone says the Gulf of Alaska is prime training area for the Navy for three reasons.
