The course is free for licensed commercial fishermen.

The two-day course will include instruction on cold water survival skills, use of EPIRBS, flares and maydays. Also included in the discussion will be overboard recovery, shipboard firefighting and vessel flooding control. Finally, the proper use of immersion suits, personal flotation devices and life rafts will be discussed, as will helicopter evacuation, emergency drills and abandon ship procedures.

Participants will meet Monday evening in Larson Bay from 6 to 8 pm and all day Tuesday. For more information or to register for the course, people can contact instructor Steven Campbell in AMSEA'S Kodiak office.

          The Rasmuson Foundation has supported Alaska non-profit organizations in the pursuit of their goals since 1955. The foundation places particular emphasis on organizations that demonstrate strong leadership, clarity of purpose and cautious use of resources. On Monday, the organization's president gave a presentation at KANA, saying that because of the economic downturn and other factors, funding was down last year and will be even lower again this year.

Diane Kaplan is president of the Rasmuson Foundation. She said the foundation expects to fund roughly the same number of projects it has in the past, but that total dollar amounts will be down, from an average award of about 22-thousand dollars to about 15-thousand per project. She also said that losing former Senator Ted Stevens, the uncertain nature of oil prices and the volatility of the stock market play a role.

            Business leaders brain-stormed ideas at the chamber lunch Monday for promoting Kodiak's first Tax Free Day, coming up on the first Saturday of March. About a dozen folks from businesses, finance and government were on hand. 

            Various ways of pre-promoting the one-day exemption from the city's six-percent sales tax were suggested, including group ad buys in the newspaper and radio, signs signifying participation for merchants to display in their stores, and direct mail. Getting the word out too early was seen as a problem, though. Some merchants were wary of customers curbing their discretionary spending until March, which would cut into February sales.
