           It’s been six months since animal control service returned to the borough’s road system. During Tuesday’s work session the borough assembly heard from Community Development Director Bob Pederson about some animal control numbers the borough recently received from the city.
            “And if you look at the numbers, 2-1, the calls in the city versus the borough. Which I think surprised us a little bit. We figured there might be some pent up demand for animal control in the borough because the contract wasn’t in place there up until November.”
             Pederson said based on the annual contract cost, the animal service is actually costing the borough around $760 per call. The cost was derived by dividing the contract in half to account for the six months it’s been in place, and then dividing that number by the number of calls.
             “Assuming that the borough is paying for half of the animal control service, there’s two employees that do it I’m told, the average cost in the city would be $355 per call. So we’ve reached out to the city and wanted to confirm that cost split. I’m not sure quite how that was structured and the contract isn’t clear on that, it’s a lump sum amount. So if we are splitting the cost of the program I think we should have a discussion with the city about cost split.”

Kodiak Sac Roe Herring Fishery Underway PDF Print E-mail

    One section has already closed in the Kodiak area sac roe herring season that opened Tuesday. In an announcement, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game closed the Outer Kiliuda Bay Section of the Eastside District yesterday at 11:10 a.m., for the remainder of the season.
    The fishery kicked off at noon on Tuesday for both gillnet and purse seine fishermen.
    Unlike more well-known fisheries such as Sitka Sound and Togiak Bay, the Kodiak area has several dozen bays, each with their own guideline harvest level and gear type restrictions. Some sections are open until further notice, others are on nine- and three-hour alternating schedules, and a couple haven’t even opened yet.
    Test fishing began in the combined Village Islands/Uganik Bay sections and the Danger Bay section on Tuesday, and Fish and Game says they will be opened by emergency order from the management biologist on the grounds when test fishing detects fishable amounts of good quality herring, meaning their size and roe percentage. Those fisheries may be extremely short in duration for seine gear – perhaps as little as 10 minutes.
    Here's the link to the latest herring announcement from Fish and Game to help you sort it all out.

Suspect's Interview Played in CommSta Murder Trial PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 April 2014

 

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP)

           The man charged with gunning down two co-workers at a Coast Guard communications station in Kodiak told an FBI agent he couldn't explain why it took so long to get home after discovering he had a soft tire on his pickup the morning of the shooting.
           FBI agent Kirk Overlander interviewed James Wells following the murders of Richard Belisle and James Hopkins in April 2012.
           In recordings played Wednesday, Wells said he left for work, stopped to check the tire and drove home.
           A security camera recorded Wells driving past the nearby Coast Guard base and driving in the opposite direction 34 minutes later.

           Asked to explain what took him so long to return home, Wells tells the FBI agent he didn't have a reasonable explanation.

Accident Expert Testifies in CommSta Murder Trial PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 April 2014

 

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP)

           An expert in recreating traffic accident scenarios says a compact sport utility vehicle could have been the vehicle seen driving past a Kodiak Island Coast Guard communications station where two men were murdered.
          Prosecutors are attempting to connect a grainy security camera image of a blue vehicle to James Wells, who is charged with killing two co-workers on April 12, 2012.
          Prosecutors say Wells drove his wife's blue Honda CRV to the shop and shot Richard Belisle and James Hopkins.
          Research engineer Angelo Toglia Jr. took measurements to construct a three-dimensional model of the site and compared models of vehicles that could have appeared in the video.
          He says trucks and sedans could not have been the vehicle in the recording but a Honda CRV could have been.

           Tomorrow marks the start of the 34th annual ComFish here in Kodiak. The event is Alaska’s largest commercial fishery trade show, and dozens of vendors are set to pack the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center to showcase their goods and services.
           “We have a full venue again, we’ve been turning people away for a month and a half.”

           That’s Kodiak Chamber of Commerce Director Trevor Brown. The Chamber organizes ComFish each year and Brown said they try to get a good balance of government agencies, informational booths and businesses selling equipment. All total Brown said there will be about 44 vendors this year.
            Brown said this year’s ComFish will also feature a new event, one aimed at highlighting the skills of local seafood processors.  
            “And it’s our processor filleting competition. Each of the processors is going to send their top person and we’re going to have a fillet-off. They’re going to be doing I believe round fish and flatfish and we’re going to have three judges there to see who does it the fastest with the least amounts of loss and cuts and all that good stuff. So that ought to be a really interesting event.”
