           The Kodiak Lady Bears basketball team is seemingly off to a great season. The team took home the win at the Lady T-Bird Hoops Classic at East High.
           Despite missing tournament play on Thursday because of delayed flights, the girls played twice on Friday, winning both games and cruised to the championships on Saturday. In the finals, Kodiak took on East High and walked away with a 56-45 win over the Thunderbirds.
           Kodiak’s Hannah Wandersee scored 20 of those points in addition to 11 rebounds. Megan Pyles added 12 points and Carissa Cannon scored 10.

            Last week KMXT told you about the Kodiak Christmas bird count, an annual event that identifies species and numbers of birds along the road system. Rich Macintosh has been birding in Kodiak for more than 50 years and said this year’s count spotted 77 species and 13,000 birds in one day. He said the count has been taking place in Kodiak for more than four decades and he’s seen a lot of increase and decline in different bird species.
            He said one example is the Steller’s Eider. When they started the bird counts he said it was often the most abundant bird they saw and showed up in the thousands.   
            “This year we counted 334 and that’s consistent with what we’ve seen in recent years, their numbers have declined pretty dramatically. The King Eider is another eider that we used to see regularly a hundred or more and recent years we see very few. We got two on the count this year.”
            On the flip side, Macintosh said this year’s count produced record numbers of sightings for other birds.  
            “Northern Goshawk we had nine, and the other record we set was for a little forest bird called the Brown Creeper, and we had 12 of those, so those were all time highs for our count.”

    A department store in Unalaska had an unwelcome customer for about three hours Wednesday night -- a bald eagle, which flew in a loading door and refused to leave. The juvenile bird flew around the Alaska Ship Supply store for about three hours before state troopers and employees were able to get it out. KUCB’s Annie Ropeik has this report from the scene.
    See a video of the bird's adventure here.

            Last night’s Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meeting was one for the record books. If you missed it, don’t feel too bad. At almost two minutes exactly it was quite possibly one of the shortest meetings in the history of the borough.
           Despite having a full agenda, and roughly a dozen borough staff and community members in the audience, the meeting didn’t make it past role call because not enough assembly members were present.
            In fact, as Deputy Clerk Jessica Kilborn explains to Deputy Mayor Chris Lynch, the lack of quorum even prevented absent assembly members from being excused. 
             “Chair Lynch we do not have a quorum. Do we need to excuse people first? We would have to have a motion to excuse people and we don’t have a quorum for a motion. Oh, OK. Due to a lack of a quorum the meeting will be adjourned at this time. Agenda items from this meeting will move forward to the next meeting which is scheduled Thursday, January 2. We are adjourned.”
              Next week’s work session was also cancelled; meaning no more assembly gatherings until 2014.

    Coming up this week, China surprises Alaska and the West Coast with a shellfish ban, Bering Sea, Aleutians and Gulf groundfish TACs have been set, and the glory that is nine-tons of vac-packed salmon steaks, all coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KUOW’s Ashley Ahern in Seattle, Seafood.com’s John Sackton in Lexington, Mass., CoastAlaska’s Ed Shoenfeld and KTOO’s Lisa Phu, both in Juneau.
