    It’s been 25 years today (Monday) since the Exxon Valdez tanker ran aground, spilling hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil in Prince William Sound.
    Around the Capitol Building, the memories for many are still fresh, as Jeremy Hsieh found out.
    Twenty-five years ago, Marta Lastufka saw a puzzling ill omen. She was at a party where a woman was giving readings with tarot cards.
    “And everybody kept getting this scary card, it was like, the death card.,” she said, ‘You know, I don’t know what this means, but something is going to happen that’s going to affect all of you. And that was probably just a few days before the Valdez oil spill. And then we realized, oh, that was it.”
    The spill brought a frenzy of activity to Alaska – workers, reporters and profiteers.  Legislative aide Ron Clark had a front seat.
    "At the time the Exxon-Valdez went aground, I was a special assistant to Gov. Steve Cowper."
    Clark and the governor flew up to Valdez a few days after the spill. They got off the plane, and Clark remembers the governor asking him, “Are you ready for this?”

Undefeated Kodiak Girls Breeze Through State Championships PDF Print E-mail

    The Kodiak High School girls basketball team capped off a perfect season Saturday evening by winning the Alaska Large School State Championships. The Kodiak Bears beat the Colony Knights 65-41 in the final game, to finish the year 27-and-0.
    The last time Kodiak High School had a state basketball championship was 2001, when the boys played an undefeated season. The coach both times was Amy Fogle, the only coach in Alaska history to pull off both feats.
    During the tournament, at Sullivan Sports Arena in Anchorage, Kodiak outscored their three opponents by a combined 75 points. The only time any of the games were close was at the end of the first quarter in the championship game, when Kodiak led Colony by only three points. They wound up winning by 25. In game two against the West Valley Wolf Pack, the Bears were so far ahead, they only scored one point in the final period and still won by 36.
    It wasn’t just the explosive offense that fueled Kodiak’s tournament – defensively, Kodiak allowed West Valley only one field goal and five points in the first half of their game.
    In the final game, all five of Kodiak’s starters scored in double-digits, an unheard of feat at any level of basketball. Guard Carissa Cannon led all scorers with 21 points, as well as hauling down five rebounds, dishing out four assists and committing five steals.
    Adriane Horn had 12 points, including two from three-point range, Jerrica Nelson and Megan Pyles had 11 each, and Hannah Wandersee scored 10.

    Also at the Sullivan, Kodiak High School took second place in the cheerleading competition, which was held between games.

    Play continued early today for the Kodiak High School boys basketball team. Yesterday, the Bears kept it close against top-seeded West Anchorage, though lost 44-37. That sent them to the losers bracket game at 9:45 this morning against number-four Thunder Mountain, which fell in the first round to number-five Colony.
    The Falcons, who the Bears lost to in the regular season, jumped out to a 13-point lead after one quarter, and extended that to 20 through the second, ending the half with a 47-to-27 lead over the Bears.
    Kodiak cut the lead to 10 halfway through the third, but Thunder Mountain, with a significant height advantage pulled away, winning 80-to-64.
    Alec Canete-Hall was the only Bear in double digits, scoring 20 points.

    The number-one seeded Kodiak Lady Bears had an up and down first round game yesterday, but through tough defense prevailed over Dimond 54-40. They play their second-round game at 3:30 this afternoon against fifth-seeded West Valley, which beat fourth-seeded Ketchikan yesterday.
    Playing the late night game yesterday, the Lady Bears started strong, building a 12-2 lead in the first period, but foul trouble put them back on their heels for much of the game.
    Center Hannah Wandersee was sat down after collecting four fouls – including a technical – in the second, and was forced to stay on the bench for almost half the game. Jerica Nelson also spent much of the game on the bench because of foul trouble.
    In their absence, forward Megan Pyles rang up 25 points and pulled down an even dozen rebounds to lead the Lady Bears to the win. The game was much closer than that, however, with Dimond trailing only by six halfway through the final quarter. But, a stifling full court press and 10 straight points near the end of the game sealed the victory for Kodiak.
    Wandersee did manage nine points in her limited playing time, while Adriane Horn had 14 steals and six points. Nelson added five points, four assists and three steals.
    Once again, the Kodiak High School Dance Team is hosting a live big-screen viewing of the Lady Bears game in the high school gym this afternoon.
    All of Kodiak’s games can be heard on KVOK radio.
