             Kodiak’s city parks could start having hours of operation in the future. Currently parks like Baranof and East Addition are open all day, every day, regardless of the season. But vandalism and complaints from nearby neighborhood residents prompted the Kodiak City Council to discuss possible hours of operation.
              During Tuesday’s work session, Police Chief T.C. Kamai said he and the police department definitely support restricting late night use at the parks, but by no means intend to make these public places less public.   
             “The police department has no interest in making our parks and our public spaces unavailable to folks who want to go there and enjoy it. But we have noticed trends over time of criminal behavior and malicious activity taking place in our parks, and I think the arson of our ice rink is probably the clearest example of that. So in an effort to better manage our parks and preserve those facilities for the public’s use we think it’s important for council to consider imposing curfew hours on the parks or closure hours if you will.”
             Kamai said many public parks are in neighborhoods and the police department often responds to noise complaints from nearby residents about activity going on in the parks. He said if there were set hours things could be handled easily by asking folks in the park to leave or citing them for not obeying posted hours.
              Parks and Recreation Director Charlie Powers said set hours would also help him better staff and monitor the parks.

Coming up this week, there’s bad news, good news, and then more bad news about wild salmon versus farmed; It may have taken a senate hearing, but it looks like Alaska salmon will remain welcome on store shelves no matter who certifies them; and why we should choose salmon over logging. Thanks to Heather Hardcastle for her commentary.

            Last night Federal Subsistence Board members were largely outnumbered by Kodiak locals during a public hearing at the Best Western Kodiak Inn. More than 70 people gave up their Tuesday evening and packed the harbor room to voice their concerns over new rural criteria the board is considering.
            Rural status means everything in the world of subsistence harvesting within federal lands and waters. Rural communities are entitled to the land and allowed to utilize natural resources surrounding them. Every ten years or so, when a new census report comes out, the federal subsistence board reexamines what communities should be classified as rural or non rural. That process hasn’t always gone to everyone’s liking, so the board is looking to update its methods and evaluate the criteria used when determining if a place should be classified as rural.
            Kodiak’s long standing rural status isn’t up for review right now. Rather, last night’s meeting was meant as an opportunity for locals to voice what they think criteria for rural status should be, so that if and when Kodiak is reviewed, it can meet the requirements and continue subsistence use of federal land.
            Iver Malutin is a councilmember with the Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak and stressed the archipelago’s history of subsistence.
           “We are doing things today, just like my parents did, and my ancestors did thousands of years ago. I could take you to Afognak today and we could live there forever without ever coming to town. We could live off the land and the sea, just like they did years ago. In 1931 when we had a depression, Kodiak and the islands on Kodiak, all the villages, didn’t even know there was a depression because we didn’t have any money we didn’t need any money and that’s what the depression was mostly based on. We had food. Right out in the channel my dad would go get fish and get ducks where Saint Herman Harbor is and we lived off the sea.”
