    The Kodiak High School Bears girls basketball teams is another step down the path to defending their state championship title. In the first round of the Northern Lights Conference tournament in Kenai yesterday (Thursday), the Bears won a defensive struggle to down the Palmer Moose 35-30. With the win, Kodiak advances to play number two seed Colony at 3:15 this afternoon. The Knights had a first round bye in the six-team double-elimination tournament.
    In the boys' bracket, number four seed Kodiak ran into a buzzsaw against number five Palmer as the Moose downed the Bears 77 to 61. They were to hit the court at 10 this morning in a consolation bracket game against the host Kenai Kardinals, who lost to the Soldotna Stars last night, 61-56.

    Public radio and TV in Alaska could lose $2.5 million next year if a proposed state budget cut goes through. It would be a small reduction compared to the overall deficit legislators need to close -- but it would eliminate more than half of the funding public media gets from the state.
    As lawmakers try to spare towns with only one source for broadcast information, KUCB's AR reports that distinction might not be so easy to make.

Wildlife Trooper Vessel Stimson May Relocate to Kodiak PDF Print E-mail

   The state is once again looking to move the Wildlife Trooper patrol vessel Stimson from Unalaska to Kodiak. And this year, the change seems poised to go through.
    Officials in Unalaska fought hard to hang on to the troopers’ biggest vessel when the move was on the table a year ago. But this time around, city manager Chris Hladick says they’ve had to reconsider their priorities.
    "I just don’t see us, with this budget climate, being able to save everything," Hladick says.
    Moving the 156-foot P/V Stimson to Kodiak would save the state almost half a million dollars, says Wildlife Trooper Col. Steve Bear. It’s either that, or cut three jobs -- meaning, he says, the transfer is all but a done deal.
    "I think everybody realizes that during these tough economic times, some of the politics that may have saved projects like this in the past just aren’t going to happen," Bear says.
    The savings with moving the Stimson come mostly in salary and housing costs. Bear says their employees in Unalaska make 60 percent more than those in Anchorage, because of the high cost of living. They also live in state-leased housing at around Anchorage rates.
    If the Stimson’s five-person crew, their families and one of Unalaska’s two troopers moved to Kodiak, they would take a pay cut -- and would have to find their own housing.
    It would also mean a loss of several students from Unalaska’s schools, which are already running a deficit due in part to declining enrollment.
    But Bear says the Stimson’s mission wouldn’t really suffer. In fact, he says they’ve planned around added fuel and travel costs.
    "We could move the boat, sail an additional 27 days, and we’d still save about $480,000 a year by doing that," he says.

State House Voices Opposition to Aleutian Sanctuary PDF Print E-mail

    On Wednesday, Alaska’s House of Representatives voted to oppose the creation of an Aleutian Islands National Maritime Sanctuary. 
    House Joint Resolution 7, sponsored by Representative Bryce Edgmon, lays out reasons why the massive sanctuary proposal is not a good idea, including that no local governing bodies from Bristol Bay out through the Aleutian Chain have offered any support for it.
    A group called PEER, for Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, nominated approximately 554-thousand square nautical miles of waters north and south of the Alaska Peninsula and the Aleutian Chain to be a new marine sanctuary.
    The resolution, adopted unanimously in the House, says the Legislature is “vehemently” opposed to this idea. HJR 7 now goes to the Senate for consideration.
