            If you're going to run aground in a boat, there might not be a better place to do it than where the fishing vessel "Hail Mary" did this (Tuesday) morning - on the shores of the nation's largest Coast Guard base in Kodiak.

            Coast Guard spokeswoman Sara Francis said the crew from the 42-foot seiner radioed in at 10:12 a.m. that they had gone aground on Nyman Peninsula in Women's Bay, and were taking on water.

            An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and a small boat from the Aids to Navigation Team were already deployed and in the vicinity when the distress call came in. They were diverted to the scene of the grounding and arrived within 10 minutes. The helicopter crew lowered a de-watering pump and the navigation boat team helped set it up. The Hail Mary's crew then located the hole in the hull and patched it with plugs. The seiner was refloated about an hour later. The crew used their own snag skiff to tow the boat to the Alaska Pacific Seafoods dock in town, arriving just before 1 p.m.

            Personnel from the Marine Safety Detachment in Kodiak will follow up and inspect the damage and repairs. No pollution was sighted and there were no injuries to the four-person crew.

            At the Kodiak City Council work session tonight (Tuesday) the councilmembers will go over the first draft of a letter to new Governor Sean Parnell, asking him to put about 2-million-dollars into his capital budget to help the city pay for the jail portion of the new police station.

            City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski explained that if the state doesn't come through, the costs will probably go up even higher.

            The Kodiak High School Bears football team got back on the winning track in this young season with a commanding win against Thunder Mountain of Juneau, a first-year program. Kodiak jumped out early and rarely stumbled as they defeated the Falcons 48-to-20.

            The Bears spread the scoring around, with three different players scoring rushing touchdowns in the first period alone. But Rafael Matautia and Riley McFarlin scored twice each to account for half of Kodiak's scoring.

            The Bears were leading 28-to-zero in the second period when Zack Watkins was tackled in the end zone for a safety to get the Falcons on the scoreboard. Then on the ensuing possession, Thunder Mountain reached the end zone, and after another Kodiak score, did it again on a 31-yard pass play, bringing the score to 35-to-14 to end the half.

            The Bears also dominated the second half, though were stopped short on a couple of drives and were forced to attempt filed goals that failed. 

            The Bears improve their record to 2-and-1, and will start five straight games of Northern Lights Conference play next Saturday, when they host the always-tough Skyview Panthers. Thunder Mountain falls to 0-and-2.
