    The off-hand comments of an enlisted Coast Guardsman on a public Facebook page about Kodiak have landed him in hot water with his superiors at Coast Guard Base Kodiak. In a post on Friends of Kodiak regarding Native land access restrictions Petty Officer Brandon Upchurch made derogatory comments toward Alaska Natives and claimed he accesses Native land despite it being private property.
    KMXT’s Jay Barrett has more, and we want to caution you, some of the comments Upchurch made will be offensive to some.

The public can attend and testify by teleconference at: 1-866-560-5984, passcode: 12960066.
     The Kodiak and Aleutian Federal Subsistence Advisory Council is meeting today and tomorrow here in Kodiak. According to Carl Johnson with the Office of Subsistence Management in Anchorage, the meeting this year will be on fisheries topics.
    “Right now, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Federal Subsistence Management program are accepting calls for federal fisheries proposals to change regulations. Which means you could either alter the harvest method or the season or even close or open certain species to fishing or shellfish harvest. So one of the things is the opportunities for the public to present, or for the council itself to present federal fisheries regulatory proposals.”
    The council will also be getting an update on the rural determination criteria review started a year ago.

    Last night the Kodiak City Council and Borough Assembly met for a joint work session and discussed Gulf of Alaska trawl bycatch management at length.
    In April the North Pacific Fishery Management Council will take up the bycatch issue, and try to develop some sort of management plan to help reduce it within the trawl industry. On Monday, the Kodiak Fisheries Work Group heard public comments, panel discussion and guest presentations on the matter and ultimately drafted a list of community goals that align with elements of the fishery management council’s framework motion on bycatch.
    That drafted list was before the island’s two governing bodies last night, and Kodiak’s fisheries analyst, Heather McCarty, emphasized that the entire list is mere suggestions to the council for further analysis on certain issues.  
    “Everything in this outline is asking for analysis or continued analysis of the elements of the framework motion and any additional elements that you might add. It’s not expressing support for those elements.”
