           A local organization is going to be ramping up efforts to promote biking and walking to school among Kodiak’s youth this year. Kodiak Island Trails Network received $65,000 from the Department of Transportation to promote its Safe Routes to School program for Kodiak’s four elementary schools and middle school. Tom Pogson is the director of marine programs and outreach for ITN and said the grant can only be used for non infrastructural work.      
           “It means it’s not intended to build sidewalks, build paths, redesign parking lots, add light posts. It’s intended to educate about the benefits and safety of walking and biking to school. Both environmental benefits and educate people about safety issues. It’s meant to encourage people and develop an attitude about encouraging people to safely let the kids walk and bike to school. And there’s an enforcement angle. And the enforcement angle is to work with law enforcement and make their presence known especially during drop off and pick up times. They enforce jaywalking, we haven’t had any serious accidents, but really any serious accident for a child would be the ultimate tragedy.”
             Pogson said educational outreach will include things like a no jaywalking campaign for the Mill Bay Road and Powell Avenue area, among other things.

            The Kodiak Borough Assembly has decided not to provide extra funding to Discover Kodiak this year. The organization was requesting $18,000 from the assembly in addition to its annual $75,000 in borough funding. The money was to be put toward international marketing at trade shows across the globe.
            Discover Kodiak Director Chastity Starrett said the hope was to travel to Berlin, Chicago and Iceland, in partnership with the Alaska Tourism Industry Association, and promote tourism in Kodiak. Having encountered some assembly skepticism toward funding the full $18,000 during the assembly’s December work session, Starrett offered an alternative during Thursday’s meeting.
            “So tonight if you’re not willing to fund the $18,000 I’d like to make an additional request for $8,390 to attend ITB Berlin. This show is important so we’re reaching the consumers interested in us while Kodiak’s in the spotlight all over the globe and we just need to be there to provide them with the necessary resources for getting here.”
             Assemblywoman Carol Austerman said she was not supportive of the $18,000 amount but moved to amend that amount to the $8,390 Starrett suggested. 
             “I do think that there is some work that needs to be done internationally for marketing and I think that it would be a good start for them to do the Berlin show this coming year. I think in my conversations with Chastity she made it very clear it was the biggest and best opportunity and part of the reasoning there is because of the co-marketing that is being done with the state of Alaska who is providing the interpreter and that makes it make a lot more sense plus that really cuts down the cost for them to attend.”
             Austerman added that she thought there needs to be some sort of tracking for the work Discover Kodiak does internationally; to make sure they are getting something out of it.

            While the holidays are over for many folks in Kodiak, they’re also just beginning for some. Today is Russian Christmas, a holiday celebrated by the Russian Orthodox Church, which follows the Julian calendar. Alutiiq Museum Director Alisha Drabek said the holiday often spans multiple days, and is best known for the practice called starring.  
             “The caroling or starring that happens here in Kodiak and throughout Russian Orthodox faith is anywhere from three nights to several more, but here locally they practice a three day caroling celebration. So after church services on January 7, the parishioners gather after the evening church service and start at Father Innocent’s house, and sing songs, traditiaonl Alutiiq caroling songs, Russian Orthodox Church songs, usually around eight to nine songs with a small group of people.”
