          Kodiak’s Fisheries Work Group is honing in on a plan of attack for fish politics this week. In October the North Pacific Fishery Management Council moved forward with a proposal for managing Gulf of Alaska trawl bycatch. The hope is to analyze a set of alternatives before the next council meeting in April, and folks in Kodiak are working to weigh in on that.
          Assemblywoman Chris Lynch sits on the fisheries work group and said there will be a meeting on Wednesday morning to discuss the council’s management actions.
         “So we’re working on developing a list of key points for discussion. And we’re going to start to present that stuff this coming week. And it’s merely a starting point for how the community wants us to move forward. What now the alternatives are – now we need to decide what’s best for the community as part of those alternatives and what we want our say – how we want the council to review all this.”

Though the Kodiak squads fell just short of state team titles, there were plenty individual records set by the Bears at the State Swimming and Diving Championship in Anchorage over the weekend.
Kodiak swimmers set six state records on their way to helping both the boys and girls to second place finishes. 
Senior Ila Hughes finished the 50 yard freestyle in 23.2 seconds and the 100 freestyle in 50.51 seconds; 
Fellow senior Tahna Lindquist twice broke the record in the 200 individual medley – a record she's owned for two years – first in Friday's preliminarys and then lowering her own time on Saturday to 2-minutes 3.61 seconds. She also set the state record in the 500 freestyle at 4-minutes 53-.5 seconds.
Freshman Talon Lindquist set new marks in two races; 1-minute 52-seconds in the 200 individual medley and 51.23 seconds in the 100 backstroke.
Tahna, who will be swimming for the University of Hawaii next year, was named the Outstanding Girls Swimmer.
Kodiak tied with Dimond with 87 points, good for second to the Juneau girls who scored an even 100.
The Kodiak boys, with 96 points, were second to Dimond's 110. Service was a distant third.
We've got full results after the jump.

           Late last month, Governor Sean Parnell announced a series of appointments to various Alaska boards and commissions. Among those were a few Kodiak nominees – specifically to the Alaska Seismic Hazards Safety Commission.
           Kodiak’s Laura Kelly was reappointed to that commission, as was Bud Cassidy and Gary Carver.
           Kelly is a civil design engineer for the U.S. Coast Guard Facilities Engineering Division and was the USCG Engineer of the Year in 2009. She was reappointed to the seat reserved for a federal agency representative.
           Cassidy serves as the current borough manager and previously was the logistics and planning chief for Kodiak’s Incident Command. He will serve as the commission’s local government representative.

          There were just a handful of folks in the audience during Thursday’s Kodiak Borough Assembly Meeting, but thanks to new technology, that doesn’t mean they were the only ones watching.
          Assembly and City Council meetings have long been broadcast on KMXT, but new software in the borough assembly chambers is allowing folks to stream meetings live from anywhere with internet access.
          Thursday’s meeting was the first of hopefully many to be streamed online, part of what Borough Manager Bud Cassidy called the video conferencing “soft roll-out.”
           “So what is happening is the camera in the center of the room is streaming you out live – I don’t know if there’s many people besides Paul in the back room watching you now. Obviously he’s trying to dial everything in. But you will have the ability, and I noticed this on our webpage right now, to click on a video streaming button – although it looks to be a little bit of a delay – and view your meetings over the internet.”
