           On the borough ballot were two assembly seats, two school board seats, several board seats for service areas and two propositions.

            The much talked about Proposition 1 for expansion and remodeling of Kodiak High School passed by a slim margin. 1,281 "yes" votes to 1,114 "no".

            The second proposition was a vote for bond sales to finance maintenance of borough buildings. That measure was defeated by 248 votes.

            Borough Manager Rick Gifford says that the defeat of that measure may put a strain on the borough budget.

            When the assembly certifies the vote at tonight's meeting, Chris Lynch and Jerrol Friend will be sworn in for second terms. Lynch won with 1,268 votes and Friend with 1,063. Also running for those seats were David King who received 928 votes and Steve Branson who received 774.

            Norm Wooten and Petal Ruch ran unopposed and were re-elected to the school board for three more years.

            There are 9,649 registered voters on Kodiak. Of that number, 2,480, or 25 per cent, voted in the October 6th election.

            Anyone wishing to petition a recount has until Monday to do so.

            A 46-year-old man was lifted from a fishing boat by the Coast Guard yesterday (Tuesday) morning, 75 miles southwest of Kodiak City in Moser Bay after it was reported that he was severely dehydrated.

            A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Kodiak medevac'd Brett Miller off the 60-foot fishing vessel Outer Limits after the boat's skipper reported that Miller was unable to eat or drink.

            The Coast Guard District 17 command center in Juneau diverted a Jayhawk training flight in the area of Moser Bay to pick up Miller about a half-hour later, hoisting him aboard just after 12 noon.

            Jayhawk pilot Jason Dorval said reduced visibility to and from Moser Bay was the most challenging part of the mission, but that once they were on-scene, the rescue went smoothly despite the 100-foot ceiling.

            The helicopter returned to Kodiak at 1:50 p.m. and transferred Miller to local emergency medical services personnel.

First Swine Flu Vaccines Given in Kodiak PDF Print E-mail

            The first immunizations against Swine Flu were given Monday here in Kodiak. The State of Alaska Public Health Center administered the 90 doses to preschool kids, age 2-to-4 on Monday afternoon.

            The 90 nasal-mist doses were part of the first wave of Swine Flu vaccines to reach Alaska. The state limited the first batch to preschoolers, aged two-to-four-years, because they are at greater risk of needing hospitalization from the Swine Flu.

            The second batch of Swine Flu vaccine for Alaska arrived in the state yesterday, according to Dawnell Smith of the State Department of Health and Social Services. Until more doses are available, they will be administered only to preschoolers, pregnant women, those who care for children too young to receive the vaccine and adults with underlying health concerns that might be complicated by the flu, as well as health care workers.

            The state is no longer keeping track of all cases of the Swine Flu, and estimate that thousands of Alaskans have already contracted it, with just over 100 needing hospitalization. Five Alaskans are confirmed dead from the Swine Flu, also known as H-1-N-1 Flu.

            State health officials think Swine Flu infections will peak earlier than the regular seasonal flu, which in Alaska spikes in February.

            The distribution of 466-million dollars in Exxon Valdez Oil Spill interest payments has been delayed. Fishermen and other plaintiffs have been waiting six weeks for Judge H. Russel Holland to sign the order authorizing the payments.

            Frank Mullen, a Homer fisherman and financial advisor said he discovered Tuesday that Holland has an issue with a stipulation in the order having to do with assignments from processors and has asked for clarification. He said plaintiffs' attorneys are expected to file a clarification soon, and after that, Holland will be able to sign the order of distribution for the interest payments.
