            With the 20th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill just days away, there is the possibility that the giant super tankers that ply the waters of Prince William Sound will be able to do so unescorted by powerful tugboats to keep them out of trouble.

            The law that requires two escort tugs for each tanker will expire once each boat in the tanker fleet has double hulls, which the Exxon Valdez did not. There is a movement among communities and groups in Alaska - especially those areas oiled by the 11-million-gallon spill, like Kodiak - to keep the tug escort requirement.

            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly last night passed a resolution to that effect.

            Meanwhile, there are a number of Exxon Valdez commemorative events in Kodiak, starting this evening at Kodiak Island College. At 5 p.m., a collection of photographs from Kodiak Island residents of the spill's devastation on the island will be on display, with a reception catered by Mill Bay Coffee. That will be followed by two presentations about the human and environmental effects of the spill, and a short film.

            At 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, Sharon Bushell and Stan Jones will be signing their new book, "The Spill: Personal Stories from the Exxon Valdez Disaster." At 7 p.m., Tim Richardson will give a talk on habitat restoration in the Kodiak Archipelago. The photography exhibit will be open all afternoon back at the college.

            The Kodiak High School Lady Bears played their first game in a state championship basketball tournament in 22 years this (Thursday) evening against the number one-ranked Colony Knights. Kodiak's gritty defense kept the valley team to only 41 points, but the Knights clamped down defensively, too, holding the Bears to 22.

            Kodiak trailed 25-to-8 after three quarters, scoring 14 in the final frame.

            Emily Garner was named Kodiak's player of the game.

            The Lady Bears move to the consolation bracket and will play at 9:45 Friday morning against the Dimond Lynx, who lost to the Wasilla Warriors yesterday.
