            Kodiak's brown bears live well on the island, thanks in part to Will Troyer. Troyer was the manager of the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge in the 1950s. During that time he pioneered the live trapping of brown bears for science. He also flew to remote spots around the state to conduct surveys on many species of Alaska's wildlife. Troyer was awarded the prestigious Olaus Murie Award in 1987 for his life's work in wildlife conservation

 When Troyer arrived in Kodiak in 1955, bears were regarded as a nuisance on the island. Local ranchers lobbied the Alaska Territorial Legislature to declare open season on the brown bear in order to reduce their population. So Troyer, a wildlife biologist, decided to conduct research on live bears in an effort to win support for their protection.

             This week the 83 year old wildlife biologist is back in Kodiak. He spoke with KMXT's Diana Gish about those early attempts to study Kodiak's most famous mammal.

            On this week's show, salmon fishing in Lower Cook Inlet is winding down, but in Southeast, the silver run remains strong. Also, how fish die, and everyone's waiting for the crab TAC announcement. All that, and how the problems at a Seward hatchery might affect Southeast mariculture. We had help this week from KCAW's Robert Woolsey in Sitka, KBBI's Marcia Lynn in Homer, Deckboss Blogger Wesley Loy in Anchorage, Fish Radio's Laine Welch in Kodiak, and KRBD's Deanna Garrison in Ketchikan.

            The U.S. Department of Education has designated 314 schools across the nation as "Blue Ribbon Schools." Three of them are in Alaska: Glennallen Elementary, Larson Elementary in Wasilla and North Star Elementary here in Kodiak.

            The Blue Ribbon program recognizes schools in two categories. One category is for those schools that score in the top ten percent of state assessments in language arts and math. The second category is for the schools that show dramatic improvement in those subjects and whose student body includes at least 40 percent disadvantaged students as indicated by disability, economic status, or limited proficiency in English. North Star and the other Alaska schools won distinction in the second category.

            Janel  Keplinger  is the principal of North Star Elementary. And while she wasn't principal during the period for which the school is being honored, she's been there since the beginning.

             KMXT's Diana Gish asked her how she felt about the school's Blue Ribbon status:
