    It was a mixed bag of results for the Kodiak High School Bears basketball teams over the weekend.
    The girls started the Golden Heart Tournament in Fairbanks on Thursday with a first round loss to Lathrop 37-to-29, but came back on Friday to beat West Valley 38-36. On Saturday it took triple overtime, but the Lady Bears outlasted the Sitka Wolves to win by a score of 40 to 35.
    The Kodiak boys started conference play Friday at home against perennial rival Wasilla. The Bears couldn't keep up, scoring only four points in the final period, and lost by 19, 56-37.
    In their Saturday rematch the Bears outscored the Warriors in the first period, but were held to single digits during the other three, and fell 63-to-34.

            Thursday's blizzard in Kodiak dumped only about six inches of snow, but it was enough to keep city snow removal crews busy throughout the night and early this morning.

           Chris Lund is a City of Kodiak Public Works maintenance supervisor. He said large-scale snow removal operations require a great deal of preparation on the part of the city. 

            Lund said Public Works deals mostly with frozen pipes when there isn't a lot of snow on the ground. 

            According to the National Weather Service, more snow is expected in Kodiak this weekend, with possible accumulations of up to another six inches.

            The salvage of the fishing vessel "American Way" has begun. The Coast Guard is reporting that the Unalaska- based salvage vessel "Redeemer" arrived at Aghiyuk Island at 1 a.m. this (Thursday) morning to begin an assessment of the situation.

           The American Way was intentionally grounded by its two-man crew on Sunday afternoon around 3 o'clock, after its engine died and the boat began to ice up. The 38-foot fishing boat was on its way from Kodiak to Chignik when the incident happened. After grounding, skipper Jim Brewer and crewman Jay Kingsley took an inflatable ashore, started a fire for warmth and called the Coast Guard on their satellite phone. A helicopter from Air Station Kodiak, about 200 miles northeast, arrived three hours later and hoisted them aboard. They were delivered in good condition to Chignik on the Alaska, about 60 miles away.

           The salvagers from Magone Marine will submit a salvage plan for review and approval to the Coast Guard. The American Way is partially submerged and listing to port, just off the rocky beach of the small and uninhabited Aghiyuk Island.

           A Coast Guard C-130 overflight on Tuesday spotted a thin diesel fuel sheen extending a couple hundred yards from the American Way, but by Wednesday it had dissipated through evaporation and wave action. The overflights showed a number of items had been washed from the deck, including boxes and line.

           The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Department of the Interior are also monitoring the situation through Coast Guard reports in regards to potential pollution. The American Way had approximately 600 gallons of diesel in the fuel tank and about 200 gallons stored in drums on deck.
