            On this week's show: Alaska Senator Ted Stevens has the slimmest of leads in his re-election bid, the hearing into the sinking of the Katmai wrapped up, the EPA has turned over water quality permitting to the state of Alaska, and Kodiak tanner fishermen are looking at a catch 20-percent less than last season. All that plus a visit with The Time Bandit's skipper while he's delivering in Saint Paul, and ... Sea Kittens.

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            Voter turn out in Tuesday's General Election was moderate to high in Kodiak. Of 10,480 registered voters, 4,170 cast ballots. That's a turnout of very nearly 40 percent.

            District 36 residents went for the McCain-Palin ticket 2,649 to 1,385 for Obama/Biden. Of course, Obama won the national vote.

            In the race for U.S. Senate, residents preferred Democrat Mark Begich 2,181 over Ted Stevens, who received 1,706 votes. Stevens has a narrow edge over Begich statewide.

            Representative Don Young did prevail here, though, 2,090 to 1,830 over Ethan Berkowitz. Young was safely ahead of Berkowitz overall.

            And residents here also approved of the statewide transportation bond by a nearly 2-to-1 margin.

            There are 1,381 absentee votes still to be counted for District 36.

            There has been no change in the District 36 election report all day today. The numbers that came in at 12:30 this morning remain standing, though the number of absentee votes remaining to be counted has been revealed to be 1,381.

            Republican Alan Austerman has a thin lead over Democrat Andy Lundquist. With 13 of 14 precincts reporting, Austerman had 2,047 votes to Lundquist's 1,936, a difference of only 111. That is less than 3 percentage points difference.

            Austerman says he is not surprised by the closeness of the race.

            Lundquist last night said he seemed comfortable with waiting a little while longer for the general election results.

            Austerman, who in the past has represented Kodiak in both the state house and state senate, gave the newcomer Lundquist credit for a job well done.

            Early absentee-in-person voting was brisk in Kodiak over the past two weeks, resulting in 1,381 votes left to count. There is no word from the state Division of Elections when that might be done, but it could be as late as November 21st.

            This is the second time residents of Alaska House District 36, which includes the Kodiak Island Borough and portions of the Lake and Peninsula Borough, have had to wait for final results. It was weeks after the August primary election before Lundquist was declared the winner of the Democratic contest over Dave Kaplan.

            The saga of Mission Road continues. In mid-summer there were no plans to fix the deteriorated state-owned section of asphalt at all, but by early fall, bids had gone out to repave it. But then, soaring costs of asphalt derailed those plans.
