           Last week KMXT told you about marine debris clean ups happening across Kodiak and how they are being funded.
           Last summer Kodiak Island Trails Network cleaned more than 80,000 tons of debris from islands in the northern part of the archipelago, and is hoping to have similar success on Shuyak Island and the northeast portion of Afognak this year.
            The amount being cleaned is certainly impressive, but handling the debris once it’s removed is another challenge in itself. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs has the final installment of our series on marine debris, and what happens to the items after they’re cleaned from the beaches.

    The Kodiak High School Bears girls basketball team wrapped up a perfect regular season over the weekend by sweeping the Wasilla Warriors here in Kodiak.
    On Friday, the Bears trounced the Warriors 50-to-29 before a raucous hometown crowd. Hannah Wandersee scored 19 and Carissa Cannon dropped in 14 in the win, including both Kodiak three-pointers.
    The final home game on Saturday was a bit closer, for a time. The Warriors were within four at one point, but could not maintain their momentum and the Lady Bears ran away with the win, 62-46.
    Kodiak is a perfect 22-and- over all, and 10-0 in the Northern Lights Conference. They are ranked number 1 in the state and in the NLC, where they will get a first round bye in the upcoming regional tournament.

    The Kodiak boys will also get a first round bye in the boys NLC tournament after finishing second in the region. They split with the Warriors over the weekend up in Wasilla. The Bears rolled to a 21-point win Friday, 70-to-49. On Saturday, foul trouble in the paint allowed the Warriors to work the ball inside and steal the win 65-60.

    The Northern Lights Conference tournament will begin Thursday at Colony High up in the Valley. The complete brackets for both the girls and the boys game times will be released today. The state tournament at the Sullivan Sports Arena in Anchorage will be two weeks later, starting March 20th.

Alaska Air Won't Follow Delta's Mileage Lead PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 28 February 2014

    Alaska Airlines has no plans to follow Delta Airlines' lead by basing mileage on how much you spend, rather than how far you're flying.
    Delta announced its changes this week, though they won’t take effect until next year.
    An Alaska spokeswoman says the company has discussed Delta's changes, but the Seattle-based airline will continue to award miles based on the distance flown.
    That's also the case for Alaska customers booking multi-city flights with a Delta leg.

           KMXT told you earlier this week, today and tomorrow are your last opportunities to watch the Lady Bears basketball team at home. The girls are undefeated this season and currently ranked number 1 among large schools in Alaska.
            Coach Amy Fogle said this weekend the girls will host the Wasilla Warriors, who were last year’s state champs.
            “They had a big senior class last year and they won itso this year we have the senior class and they’re kind of rebuilding but they have a great coach and they’re going to step on the floor ready to play basketball. They’re record certainly doesn’t show how good they are and how much they’ve improved over the season. They got two big wins at the Dimond Tournament in Anchorage a couple weeks ago and they played some real close games against some real good teams so I think they’re gaining some momentum and they’re going to feel good coming in here to Kodiak. People like to come here. They play in front of a big crowd and you know it’s always exciting to play against the number one ranked team in the state.”
            Senior Isabelle Hiner said she’s looking forward to playing the Warriors, who the Lady Bears haven’t faced since last season.
            “I feel like it will be a challenge because we haven’t played against them since last year and they have a really good coach, so we’ll see what happens.”
            The games start today with C-team play at 4 p.m. JV will play tonight at 5:30 p.m. and varsity at 7 p.m. On Saturday, C-team will start at noon, with JV at 1:30 p.m. and varsity wrapping up the weekend at 3 p.m. 
            The boys basketball team will also face Warriors this weekend, but they’ll be playing in Wasilla. Coach David Anderson said it should be a good match up for the Bears, and a great weekend of basketball. 
            “Well you know Wasilla hasn’t had a great season but they’ve beaten some of the teams we’ve lost to – Palmer and Soldotna. So we’re going to have our hands full. We’re young, it’s an up and down season and hopefully we can pull two out of these things on the road again.”
             Sophomore Alec Canete-Hall said he’s excited to face the Warriors, which they haven’t seen on the court at all this season.
             “I think they only have two losses too so it should be a good game.”
             Tune in to KMXT next week when we visit with each of the Kodiak High School basketball teams a little more in depth and talk to players from both squads about the season and upcoming region tournament.

Coming up this week, Alaska gets $21-million for 2012’s king salmon disaster, Senator Murkowski wonders if something more than public health might be behind China’s geoduck ban, and how might this warm winter affect baby salmon all snug in their streams?  We had help from APRN’s Liz Ruskin in Washington, DC, KDLG’s Dave Bendinger in Dillingham, KTOO’s Casey Kelly in Juneau, and KRBD’s Leila Kheiry in Ketchikan.
