           Kodiak’s commercial salmon fishery is set to kick off on Thursday. Kodiak Commercial Fisheries Management Biologist James Jackson said there will be a series of salmon openers starting at noon.
            “We’re going to open up the majority of the Northwest Kodiak District, also the areas around the hatchery for there’s some early chum production that guys like to fish for up there. And then also we have some small put and take fisheries up on Afognak – those are those Foul Bay, and Waterfall Bay special harvest areas. Those areas will open up until further notice. We also opened up for commercial fishing the Southeast Afognak Section of the Afognak District because Litnik has some good escapement. We basically have good early sockeye escapements almost everywhere on the island.”   
           Like last year, Jackson said this is an earlier than normal opener. He said they traditionally hold off on opening up any fishing periods until after June 9.

           As the Kodiak Borough Assembly looks toward finalizing the borough’s FY 2015 budget, it’s deciding how to allocate nonprofit funding. During Thursday’s work session the assembly reviewed a recommendation from the nonprofit funding committee – a recommendation that didn’t include a number of funding requests from local organizations.
          Assemblywoman Carol Austerman said the budget for nonprofit support in 2015 was set at $351,000, but the borough received 25 applications from local nonprofits totaling more than $476,000. 
           “And of course we didn’t anywhere near that much money to allocate. So the first thing we did was review all the applications for complete and full information and you can see the list in the memo of the organizations that we disregarded because they did not provide complete information. We felt like we could not in good faith give those organizations funding and take funding away from other organizations that did provide the exact information that was requested.” 
            The organizations that were disregarded from borough funding due to incomplete applications include The Humane Society of Kodiak, American Red Cross, Kodiak Head Start, Salvation Army of Kodiak, Threshold Services and Kodiak Maritime Museum. Special Olympics and Girl Scouts also missed out on funding because their applications were turned in late. All total, those disregarded applications equaled just over $61,000.

           Every couple of years the new president of the Alaska Bar Association swings through Kodiak to meet with the attorneys in town and to hear about their concerns. Current Bar President Geoffry Wildridge of Fairbanks visited Kodiak recently, but it wasn’t his first time here. Wildridge worked for Alaska Legal Services here in the late 70s and early 80s.
           “Matt Jamin was my supervising attorney at that point ... It’s just great to be back here. I haven’t been back here in all these years. I’m just kinda dumb-struck; it’s just wonderful to be here.”
            On his visit over Crab Fest, Wildridge said he got a chance to meet with most of Kodiak’s attorneys.

           Last week Governor Sean Parnell signed budget bills totaling $12.8 billion for next year. That compares to roughly $13.2 billion for the current year. Within those bills was the capital budget, which included more than $36 million for the Kodiak Island Borough to put toward various capital improvement projects around the archipelago.
           Topping the list was $15 million that will go toward the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill trustee council land acquisition on Afognak Island. More than $10 million will go to improving the Kodiak airport and just over $3 million will help the Aleutian Homes water and sewer replacement project.
            Also making the list this year was almost $2.5 million for deferred maintenance on the Kodiak Launch Complex and roughly the same amount for the Monashka pumphouse replacement project. Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association will receive just over $1 million for Pillar Creek Hatchery upgrades.
            Ouzinkie will get $300,000 for emergency repairs to the Mahoona Dam and $54,000 will go toward the small boat harbor breakwater stub design in Port Lions.
            All total 16 Kodiak projects were funded through the state’s capital budget.
            Parnell issued no vetoes on the budget.
