            Each year the Alaska Department of Fish and Game asks deer hunters to donate the heads of their catch so they can be tested for Chronic Wasting Disease. The disease is not prevalent in Alaska, but it is a problem the lower 48. Fish and Game is currently conducting a testing program to monitor for the possible appearance of the disease in Alaska and has a drop box where people can deposit their deer heads for testing. KMXT's Erik Wander has more.

            Dozens of spruce trees were blown over on Friday during a day-long northwesterly windstorm. Several trees, from Mill Bay Road to Otmeloi fell into transmission lines, causing scattered and sometimes repeated power outages for some residents.

            Quite possibly the most popular man in town right now is tree surgeon Dennis Symmons, who has been busy since Friday morning. First it was trying to secure trees from causing property damage during the storm, and since then helping property owners cope with trees that could pose future problems.

            He said relatively warm temperatures and heavy rain in the month prior to the storm kept the ground from freezing as much as usual, leaving exposed trees susceptible to the winter storm.

            He says the conditions were a rare enough combination that some trees were not capable of handing it.

Air Station Kodiak Crew Medevacs Three From Tanker PDF Print E-mail

            Three injured Indian men aboard a Chinese-flagged chemical tanker were successfully medevac'd this (Monday) afternoon by an Air Station Kodiak Coast Guard helicopter crew about 80 miles south of Adak.

            The MH-60 Jayhawk and an HC-130 Hercules left Kodiak on Sunday night after receiving a request for a medevac at 4:15 p.m. Meanwhile, the tanker Bum Chin altered course towards Adak to lessen the distance the helicopter had to fly. The Jayhawk and ship rendezvoused at about 12:30 this afternoon. Thirty-five mile-per-hour winds, 12-foot seas and snow showers were reported at the time.

            Coast Guard spokeswoman Sara Francis said the three crewmen suffered injuries after a rogue wave hit the 478-foot tanker, knocking them down. The chief officer received head injuries; an able seaman sustained a compound fracture of his left leg and wounds to his forehead and left hand; while the fifth engineer sustained injuries to his left leg, lower back and rib cage.

            The men, reportedly in stable condition, were flown back to Adak, where they were transferred to the C-130 for the flight to Anchorage.

            The Bum Chin was en route from Ulsan, South Korea, to San Francisco, and has since resumed its course.

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.
