The (Fireworks) Show Must Go On PDF Print E-mail

            Kodiak residents get one more chance to see a professional aerial fireworks display this year. Dense fog postponed, and then cancelled the Independence Day display on July 4th, with low clouds and rain cancelling the display on Labor Day weekend.

            Now, organizers are going to try again on New Year's Eve.

            Mark and Diana Holt, who set off the city of Kodiak's fireworks each year, said they are scheduling the show for 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. They said that would be early enough to bring kids out for the display and get home in time for grown-up activities at midnight.

            As usual, the display will be fired off from Near Island over the channel. The Fred Zharoff Memorial Bridge will be closed one-half hour before the show, and re-open right afterwards.

            The Holts are asking everyone to do a "good weather" dance for that night, but if the display is rained out again, the fallback date will be Saturday night, January 3rd, also at 8 p.m.

            They say they will let KMXT know by 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon if the show is a go or not, so keep your radio tuned to 100.1.

            Four men, including two from Kodiak, are seeking appointment to the Superior Court judgeship here. The advancement of Joel Bolger to the Alaska Court of Appeals earlier this year created the vacancy.

            They are Steve Cole, who is currently the Kodiak court magistrate; Stephen Wallace, the current Kodiak District Attorney; Robert Owens, an assistant municipal attorney in Anchorage; and Mark Osterman, who is in private practice in Kenai.

            Cole is 55 years old, and has lived in Alaska for 34 years. Osterman is 51 and been a resident in the state for 10 years. Owens is 54 and been in Alaska 26 years and Wallace is 50, and lived in the state 26 years.

            The Alaska Bar Association has already rated the four applicants, with Wallace scoring 4-point-2 on a scale of one to five. Cole and Owens were rated at 4-point-1. Osterman had a rating of 2-point-1.

            The Alaska Judicial Council is seeking public comment on the applicants' qualifications. They can be made at the council's web site .

            The council will interview all four applicants and then hold a public hearing to take comments before selecting two or more to be advanced to Governor Sarah Palin, who will then have 45 days to make an appointment.

          The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a high wind warning to remain in effect until 5 p.m. today. The Kodiak Harbormaster's office is reporting that due to high winds, several vessels' lines have started to part, and at least three boats' lines have broken free. Harbormaster Marty Owen described the situation the weather is causing at the Harbor.

            Owen urges all boat owners to check and secure their vessels as soon as possible. He said there is currently no power in Saint Herman Harbor.

 

            Kodiak Electric Association is also reporting that several trees have fallen into power lines, resulting in power outages to several areas of town. 

 

The high wind warning for Kodiak Island remains in effect until 5 p.m. today. A strong low in the Gulf of Alaska and strong high pressure building in the Bering Sea are combining to create strong northwest winds over Kodiak Island.

pdf 2008birdcount 396.13 Kb

           Birds in Kodiak are a hardy breed, but so are those who go looking for them. Last Saturday, during a pretty stormy day, 77 folks participated in the 36th consecutive Kodiak Christmas Bird Count, sponsored by the Audubon Society. 

            For years, Kodiak has been the hot spot in the state for the bird count, averaging 78 species over the past 10 years. This year, despite the weather, 74 species and nearly 14,000 individual birds were counted. But according to Rich MacIntosh, the folks in Ketchikan put in an impressive effort this year and edged out Kodiak. Click on the PDF above for a list of all the birds spotted this year.

            Birders will get a second shot at counting next weekend. The Narrow Cape - Kalsin Bay Christmas Bird Count will be on January 3rd. MacIntosh says anyone is welcome to join in whether they're experienced or not, as each group will have a skilled birder leading them. He's looking for folks who are as hardy as the birds and will show up no matter the weather.
