           While seismic activity at Mount Redoubt continues at an elevated level, the volcano has yet to erupt. Redoubt's alert level remains at watch status according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory, but scientists there say a potential eruption isn't likely to have a significant impact on Kodiak beyond the effect it would have on transportation. Still, local city and fire officials say Kodiak residents should take precautions.

City Manager Linda Freed said people should refer to the Kodiak Area Emergency Preparedness Guidebook, which is available on the City's Web site, for tips on how to prepare for a potential Redoubt eruption and ash fall in Kodiak.

            Now that computers speeds don't change much from month to month any more, the latest technological must-have is high-speed Internet. The Kodiak Island School District is no different. The administration is asking the school board to expend about 56-hundred dollars more per year to boost the bandwidth from 8 megabits to 10 megabits per second. A megabit is one million bits. The fastest dial-up modems of old maxed out at 56-thousand bits. High-speed Internet in the home or a small business would likely be 1-megabit in speed.
