           Kodiak is the only island featured from the 49th state and has some stiff competition with places like Kauai, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico making the top 20 list.
           That top 20 list was chosen by panel of travel experts from USA Today. They based their selections on criteria like beauty, accessibility, variety of terrain, things to do, wildlife, local culture and popularity. Folks can vote for their favorite U.S. Island until June 2. The winners will be revealed on June 4.

           May is ALS Awareness Month in the United States and one woman is taking it upon herself to educate people about the disease here in Kodiak.
           ALS stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that limits the brain’s ability to control muscles, often times leading to complete movement loss in different parts of the body. 
           “And there is no cause, there is no cure, or treatment.”
           That’s 34-year Kodiak resident Sarah Thayer, who has made it her goal to inform people about the disease, which affects approximately 5,600 in the U.S. each year. Thayer said she became aware of ALS when her own body started exhibiting signs and symptoms of muscular failure.
           “2005 I noticed something weird with my walking, my right leg.”
           Over the course of two years, the weakness in her right leg progressed and she eventually saw a neurologist. He wasn’t sure what the cause could be and a series of referrals to other doctors ultimately led Thayer to an ALS specialist at a hospital in Boston.
           “And I’ve seen him since 2010. He hasn’t given me a diagnosis of ALS, but it’s always been a temporary diagnosis, and what is listed in the three that he has given me for choices, you could say, is PLS – primary lateral sclerosis, which is either the same or a lot like upper motor neuron predominant ALS.”
           While Thayer hasn’t been officially diagnosed with ALS, she said her trials in learning about her own condition led to a greater awareness of the disease.
             “And the monster that it is.”

           Folks will have a chance to test their strength in an unusual way this weekend, and help out a local cause at the same time. Dan Canavan is the volunteer community director for Special Olympics here in Kodiak and said people can form eight-member teams to try and pull a fire truck.
           “Actually it will be a nine-member team because one of the requirements is of course to recruit or have me help them find them an athlete to participate as one of the team members.”
            The teams will need to raise at least $200, and that can be done through sponsors or pledges. The money will go toward Special Olympics, specifically helping with the Torch Run on May 17th.
            Jason Waggoner is a volunteer at Bayside Fire Department and said fire truck won’t be full of water, but it should still pose a sizable challenge.
           “The one we’re planning on pulling is Squad 10, which is our medical truck. It doesn’t have water in it, but even without water in it, it still weighs 40,000 pounds.”
