            A local businesswoman who has been involved in the Alutiiq Museum's Alutiiq language program for the past few years, was recently diagnosed with a rare and aggressive type of cancer and now finds herself in need of help in covering her medical costs.

            The museum's Alutiiq language manager, April Laktonen Counceller, said the woman, "Isabella B.," as she prefers to be known for business-related and privacy reasons, was actively involved in the Alutiiq Museum's volunteer program in addition to learning the language, before she was diagnosed with advanced stage lobular breast carcinoma two months ago. Counceller said Isabella was always giving of her time while working with the museum, particularly in her friendship with elders, and hopes people will help give back.

            Isabella, who is currently in Phoenix, Arizona, receiving treatment, said she was misdiagnosed four times before finally learning that she had the rare form of cancer. She said that for the past year and a half, she had been seeing doctors at the Alaska Native Medical Center and Kodiak Area Native Association, because she was continuously feeling fatigued.

Busy Weekend for Coast Guard PDF Print E-mail

            A helicopter crew from Air Station Kodiak hoisted an ailing man from a cruise ship south of Cold Bay on Monday. It was one of two medevacs from cruise ships in Alaska water over the Memorial Day weekend.

            Around 3 p.m. Monday the Coast Guard was notified by the crew of the Silver Shadow that a 58-year-old man had internal bleeding and was in need of medical treatment. An MH-60 Jayhawk was launched and located the ship about three hours later. A rescue swimmer was lowered to the cruise ship and evaluated the patient before hoisting him into the hovering chopper. The man was then delivered to a waiting life flight jet at the Sand Point airport a little after 8 p.m. The rescue swimmer, Petty Officer Erik Pointer, said good communication between the air crew and the ship's doctor made for a smooth medevac.

            The other medevac was on Saturday near Whittier, when a 60-year-old woman suffered a possible heart attack aboard the cruise ship "Spirit of Columbia." A 25-foot response boat from the Coast Guard station in Valdez responded at about 8 p.m. and had the woman aboard in less than an hour. When they returned to port, the patient was transferred to waiting emergency medical technicians.

            Besides the two medevacs from cruise ships, the Coast Guard responded to 13 requests for help from recreational boaters over the long holiday weekend. They ultimately helped 30 people out of various jams, ranging from boats that became grounded, to a pair that were sinking.

            Team leader John Lang said the group made it from Anchor Point to Port Williams on the southern end of Shuyak Island Sunday and stayed the night, before embarking on the leg to Kodiak.

    Despite a good season on the track and field, Bartlett and Dimond high schools proved to be too strong for the Kodiak Bears to overcome. The boys placed third in the state championships over the weekend with 66 points, behind Bartlett's 86 and South Anchorage's 77. The girls were 15th, with 16 points. Dimond was first with 95. Juneau-Douglas had 49 and Kenai had 47.
    Senior Trevor Dunbar, plagued by illness last week, only managed two wins, in the 32-hundred and the 16-hundred-meter races. He got second place in the 800, losing to Dimond's Ryan Hanley by about a half-a-second.
    Dunbar was Kodiak's only state champ of the meet. Several individuals and relay squads took thirds, though. The Kodiak girls took third in the 400-relay, while the boys did the same in the 800 and 16-hundred relays. Erwin Domingo was third in the long jump, and Dylan Anthony was third in the 32-hundred.
