    Walmart announced Friday that they will continue to stock salmon products from most of the large seafood processors that operate in Alaska.
    Previously Walmart had announced that they would only accept salmon products that carry the Marine Stewardship Council label of sustainability.
    Since most of the large seafood processors that operate in Alaska withdrew their support for MSC that left most of the salmon from Alaska out of the loop to be sold by Walmart.
     The processors withdrew their support for MSC in favor of a competing sustainability label sponsored by the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, which is the seafood marketing arm of the state of Alaska.

           This Sunday a group of Kodiak’s male and female vocal enthusiasts will put on a winter song concert. Jenny Stevens has been directing her male vocal group, the Alpha Singers, for about five years. 
            “There’s between 10 and 12 guys. They get together every night and sing their hearts out and have a lot of fun. As one guy said, we schedule our whole lives around Monday night rehearsal.”

            The Alpha Singers will be in Sunday’s concert, but Stevens said they won’t be the only vocalists performing. She recently formed a women’s singing group, the Song Warriors, and they will also be singing seasonal songs for the event.
             Meredith Pippin is a member of the Song Warriors and said she’s always loved singing with groups, so she was happy to find one here in the Kodiak community.  
             “We get together every Wednesday night at Jenni’s house at about 7 p.m. and we have a folder of music and we start reading through it and go from there. Sometimes we have moments where we’re just singing as if we’re professionals, but really it’s just a group of us who love to sing, not only who love sing but to sing in a group and with other people.”
              Darcy Stielstra performs with the Alpha Singers and said the male group practices once a week as well.

           A handful of Kodiak projects will be sent to Washington D.C. in the near future. During last night’s city council meeting the council unanimously approved the city’s prioritized federal capital improvements program and issues list, essentially the city’s wish list of sorts for federal funding.
         City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said she spoke with the city’s D.C. lobbyist, Brad Gilman, and he recommended including all transportation and water infrastructure projects that are underway in the event some funding becomes available for those specifically.
          “He said the same thing last year but I think he has a feeling there might be some chance for federal money.”)
           Kniaziowski said the list is similar to the one the city submitted last year, but includes two new issues they hope D.C. folks will consider taking a closer look at.
          “Council passed that resolution in favor of rural subsistence determination so Brad and his staff have been working that on the hill and he wanted that in there. And also some comment on the federal fishery observer program funding.”
           The top priority on the city’s federal capital improvement list is still the Monashka pumphouse replacement. Kniaziowski said that $2 million request is included with the hopes that any federal funding allocated can be used as a match for the state municipal matching grant. She said that worked well when they did the same thing for the UV project, and would mean the city won’t have to borrow as much money to fund the pumphouse replacement.
