           This weekend people can get some important health information, without making a trip to the doctor’s office. Karen Leatherman is a spokeswoman for Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center and said the Kodiak Community Health Fair will offer free and low cost health screenings and educational materials to anyone interested. 
           “Some of the health screenings that will be offered include blood pressure, vision, height and weight. There are many free health education topics that will be covered and there’s also some great prizes that you can win.”
           The fair will also offer low cost blood tests ranging from comprehensive tests to simple blood typing. Those hoping to do a comprehensive test will need to fast for ten hours before having their blood drawn.
          The event is sponsored by a number of different community organizations and will feature exhibits and activities both for adults and children.

Coming up this week, only CDQ boats got to go crabbing when the season opened Tuesday because of the since-resolved federal government shutdown, we get a report from the World Congress of Fisheries, and, just how hot pink was your summer? All that, and has the bearded fisherman jumped the shark?

Kodiak Could Welcome Tustumena on Monday PDF Print E-mail

            If all goes according to plan, the state ferry Tustumena could be pulling up to pier I in Kodiak on Monday. An email from the Alaska Department of Transportation’s office said the vessel is currently undergoing sea trials, and so far no problems have been identified. Stability tests have been done and the department expects an approval from the U.S. Coast Guard to begin service by the end of the week.
            If that approval is given, the ferry will begin service from Seldovia on Sunday, and arrive in Kodiak around 1 p.m. on Monday.
            It will have been just shy of a full year since the Tusty tied up in Kodiak. The ship entered the Seward Ship’s Dry Dock in November for scheduled maintenance, and was originally set to return to service in April. But poor welds and inferior materials caused several delays, leaving much of Southwest Alaska with limited or no ferry service for the past year.
            The email from the DOT said the ferry may receive a temporary stability letter if the Coast Guard is shorthanded due to government shut down. That means the vessel would be allowed to operate, but would most likely reduce the amount of vehicles allowed on board. A final stability letter would be issued at a later date.

            The high school has been under construction for a few months now and is well into phase four of the eight phase project. The most visible change so far, at least from the outside, is the construction of the steel framework for the new four-story tower. But there’s a lot more work happening inside the school that isn’t visible to daily onlookers. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs recently took a tour of the high school to learn how the construction process is going.

Borough Will Say 'Goodbye' to Selby, 'Hello' to Friend PDF Print E-mail

           Composting in Kodiak could take a huge step toward fruition tonight, if a land transfer garners enough support. The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly will hold a regular meeting tonight and discuss, among other things, whether or not the borough should transfer a portion of land south of the landfill to the city.
           The city hopes to build a better quality Class A composting facility on those 2.36 acres of borough land. Lesser quality Class B compost is already being made at the landfill. The compost would be made using biosolids, which have gone through the wastewater treatment plant and are very different from raw sewage.
          The city made a case to the assembly last week during its work session and most assembly members seemed to support the land transfer. Tonight they’ll make a formal decision on the matter.
          The assembly will also welcome its newest member, Frank Peterson, and say good bye to Louise Stutes. Frank Peterson was elected earlier this month, alongside incumbent Carol Austerman. Stutes did not run for relection. Peterson and Austerman will be sworn into office, along with the borough’s new mayor, Jerrol Friend. Tonight will be current Mayor Jerome Selby’s last borough assembly meeting, after 25 years in the position.
