            Last night the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly passed its state legislative capital improvement projects priority list for the 2014 legislative session, but it was a different list than the assembly saw two weeks ago. During assembly discussion Assemblyman Mel Stephens moved to amend the list, bumping the number six item to number three, and letting the other items change accordingly.
            Number six asks the state for $5 million to put toward service area road paving and improvements.
            “I make that motion because I basically agree with the comments of Scott Arndt and Dennis Symmons concerning the priorities here. I think service area road and paving improvements should be a higher priority than they have been in the past. I think they benefit a greater portion of the people than some of the other items that were above number six on this list.”
            One of those items asks for $500,000 to look at extending public utilities to swampy acres. The project would be a public/private partnership and cater to the possibility that additional Coast Guard housing could be built in that area, which currently has no water or sewer lines. Stevens said he is against that project, which was originally number three on the CIP list.
            Assemblyman Aaron Griffin, however, said that should remain on the list because it is intended to help offset some of the housing problems here in Kodiak. He said the one complaint he hears consistently from Kodiak community members is the high cost of housing.

          It’s no secret that Alaska has become a popular setting for reality television. Many shows feature the last frontier’s extreme wilderness or dangerous jobs, but a new one will take a look at Alaska’s romantic side, or lack there of. Alaskan Women Looking for Love premieres on Sunday and features six Kodiak women who are fed up with dating on a remote island. Their solution: fly 5,000 miles south to Miami, Florida with the hopes of finding love. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs spoke with three of women to learn more about the latest Alaska-themed reality show.

Troopers Searching for Flaming Car Owner PDF Print E-mail

    Alaska State Troopers are looking for some help in finding the owner of a car that was apparently set on fire and rolled off a cliff onto the beach near the Helipad on Spruce Cape Road. The fire was reported early last Wednesday morning. Troopers determined the vehicle was unoccupied.
    Troopers say the car was burned to such an extent that identifying its make and model has been difficult. In photographs, the car appears to be a midsize four-door. After the flames were extinguished the Troopers discovered that the VIN, or vehicle identification number, had been removed, as were the license plates, further hindering identification of its owner.
    The Troopers are continuing to investigate the incident and are urging anyone with information to give them or Crime Stoppers a call.
