            On this week's Jock of The Rock, Nick Sandin returns triumphantly from the wilds of Bristol Bay, tanned and rested. He's joined by Nuts of the Roundtable regulars Ron Sears and Jay Barrett, who are not nearly as tanned and not quite as rested.

State, Kodiak Unemployment Lower Than Nation PDF Print E-mail

            The state's unemployment rate is now below that of the Lower 48, and Kodiak's unemployment rate is also bucking the trend.

            State figures show 8.5 percent of the borough's workforce to have filed for unemployment benefits in June, compared to 9.1 percent a year ago. That relates to 553 unemployed now, compared to 609 last year. Despite the canneries gearing up for salmon, the rate grew nine-tenths of a percentage point in June over May this year.

            The Wade-Hampton Census Area, that is, the northern Yukon Delta, once again recorded the highest rate of unemployment with nearly a third of the workforce idle. The tiny Denali and Bristol Bay boroughs each had the lowest rates in the state at 3.2 percent. In Anchorage, it was 7.3 percent.

            Statewide, the unemployment rate is 8.4 percent, fully one percentage point lower than the rest of the nation. The state's rate in June represents an overall loss of 11-hundred jobs, most of those coming in the construction and the retail trades. As you might expect, seafood processing jobs statewide almost doubled from May to June. Jobs in healthcare also increased, as did government employment and jobs in the oil and gas industry.

            Everybody loves sunshine, but there's a downside to a warm summer, and that's the dryness. We told you earlier this week about how the lack of rain has affected the water levels at the Terror Lake Hydro plant, but it's also affecting the decorative greenery about town, with some lawns actually turning brown from the drought.

            But city fields don't have to worry, because they've got the parks and recreation crew to help out.

            The pink salmon harvest in Kodiak Island waters has overtaken the sockeye catch. The daily harvest of pinks has been double to triple the red catch for the past week.

            Through last Saturday the cumulative sockeye harvest stood at nearly 783-thousand, while the catch of humpies was almost 654-thousand. But by Tuesday, the pink harvest was over 906-thousand, some 13-thousand more than the red total of 893-thousand. That was sparked by a haul of 155-thousand pinks on Tuesday alone.

            The daily catch of sockeye has been fluctuating between 23-thousand and 56-thousand this week, while the daily pink catch has been at least 53-thousand.

            The Karluk, Northwest Kodiak and Southwest Afognak districts have been leading the way in catch of both species, with a total harvest through Wednesday of 329-thousand pinks and 272-thousand reds. For reds, the Olga, Moser and Alitak Bay section, along with the Cape Alitak and Humpy-Deadman, and Cape Igvak (ig-vak) and Wide Bays, have been the top performers.

            For pinks, the Cape Igvak and Wide Bay district and the Duck, Izhut (izz-you-it) and Kitoi (kit-oy) bays have seen strong catches as well.

            Meanwhile, chum salmon catches have been between 9-thousand and 31-thousand the past week, with a season total of 243-thousand harvested so far. There have been 25-thousand silvers caught to date, along with about 58-hundred kings.
