Cutter Halts Fishing Boat Over Violations PDF Print E-mail

           The Coast Guard Cutter Acushnet temporarily terminated a fishing voyage of the fishing vessel Arctic Wave approximately 30 miles northeast of Kodiak at approximately 2 p.m., Monday.

            A boarding team from the Acushnet, a 213-foot medium endurance cutter homeported in Ketchikan conducted a routine fishing vessel inspection and found a shark fin hanging from the rigging of the Arctic Wave. Having a shark fin without the carcass is a violation of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1996.

            Upon further inspection of the vessel, it was found that the Arctic Wave had an insufficient number of immersion suits. The Acushnet contacted Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Kodiak and National Marine Fisheries Service personnel and terminated the fishing trip. The Acushnet escorted the Arctic Wave back to Kodiak.

            The fishing vessel was met in Kodiak by Marine Safety Detachment Kodiak and National Marine Fisheries Service personnel. The captain of the Arctic Wave was able to acquire a sufficient number of immersion suits while in port. After the Coast Guard re-inspected the fishing vessel and found no other violations, the Arctic Wave was allowed to continue their fishing voyage. The fishing vessel left Kodiak at approximately 9 p.m. Monday.

It's Election Day In Kodiak PDF Print E-mail

           This is Election Day on Kodiak Island. Polls opened at 7 a.m. and will stay that way until 8 p.m.

            There is only one contested race today: that is for the one-year seat on the Kodiak Island Borough School Board, which three write-in candidates are seeking. They are Jana Turvey, Petal Ruch and Jerry Lampl.

            Incumbents Peggy Rauwolf and Jeff Stephan are seeking re-election to the other two school board seats, which are both for three-year terms.

            On the borough assembly, incumbent Sue Jeffrey is seeking re-election, and Judy Fulp is running for one of the two seats open for three years. The other seat had nobody wanting to run for it when the sign-up period ended, but Dave Kaplan has announced a write-in campaign for it.

            There are only two candidates for the two Kodiak City Council seats – incumbent Tom Walters and former police department employee Paul Smith, an Episcopal priest.

            In the service area elections, only one has a full slate of candidates.

            One of the reasons there might be suppressed interest in seeking public office is because of new, more detailed – some would say more intrusive – financial disclosure forms candidates must fill out. Ballot Proposition Number One is designed to alleviate that reporting requirement. If passed, it would allow borough candidates to file the old forms with the borough clerk’s office, and they will be available for public scrutiny there. Residents of the city of Kodiak passed a similar proposition many years ago.

            Speaking of the ballot propositions, Number Two would authorize the sale by the borough of up to 115-million dollars in bonds to pay for a new Kodiak High School. The state would reimburse the borough for 60-percent of that cost, leaving about 46-million dollars for borough residents to pay over the course of the 20-year life of the bond.

            KMXT will have the election results as they come in tonight after the polls close, but the borough clerk’s office has previously announced it would not have vote totals for any write-in candidate until later in the week. That’s because they have to be counted by hand.

            Volatile barely begins to describe the stock market lately. Take for example Monday (yesterday), when the Dow Jones industrial average dipped as much as 800 points before recovering somewhat to close with a loss of 370 points on the day. While that was going on, a group of local financial experts got together to discuss what the current situation on Wall Street means to the average resident of Kodiak. KMXT’s Casey Kelly has more.
