    Nautical charts have been around for hundreds of years, marking the depth of waterways and noting hazards to navigation. But they don’t update themselves as the ocean floor changes and new hazards appear. That job falls to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
    One of the people who work to keep those charts current is Lieutenant Matt Forney, the navigation manager of Alaska for NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey. His motto is: “We find rocks so you don’t have to.”
    Forney was in Kodiak last week working with the Coast Guard on bottom surveys around the islands.
    “They were just operating in Bechevin Bay. And Bechevin Bay, False Pass area, is an area that’s very dynamic. High currents and the channel changes from year to year, as well as it ices over. So they actually have to place the buoys every spring and remove them every fall. And for them to be able find the channel, they actually run around and plot it out, using their small boats’ fathometers," he said. "So, since they’re already putting in that effort, we figured ‘hey, why not take the data and use it for the good of all mariners.”

    The state ferry Tustumena, which serves Kodiak, the Alaska Peninsula, and out to Dutch Harbor, could go back into service next month after a yearlong absence from the seas.
    The 50-year-old ship went into maintenance in October 2012 and never returned to service, after ferry system staff discovered mechanical and structural issues were discovered.
    While the Tusty is getting closer to returning to service, the date of that return has again been pushed back – to later than what ferry officials told the Marine Transportation Advisory Board, when it met last week in Sitka.

Coming up this week, fishermen take matters into their own hands when it comes to Walmart’s snub of Alaska seafood; the rain has come in the nick of time for spawning salmon in Sitka, and speaking of the Paris of the Pacific, kindly check your firearms at the door. We had help from the KCAW News Team of Robert Woolsey and Ed Ronco in Sitka, and KYUK’s Angela Denning-Barnes in Bethel.

            Bear dens aren’t just found in the wild, and they don’t just cater to animals. At Kodiak High School, a different kind of Bear’s den services a different kind of bear, when it provides snacks, drinks and alternatives to breakfast and lunch for hungry high school students. The Bear’s Den has been around for many years and is located in the main commons of the high school, near what is commonly referred to as the old pool entrance. It’s run by the Booster Club, and manned by a slew of volunteers.
            Stephanie Love is the treasurer for the Booster Club and helps coordinate for the den. She said about 25 people volunteer regularly for the food booth, which also opens up during games at the high school.
            Booster Club President Bob Brodie said it’s a huge fundraiser for Booster Club, making up about half of the funds that the organization uses to help fund student clubs and athletics. But the popular food den will face challenges in the coming year as renovations and construction continues on the high school. 
           “At the end of the current school year they’re going to tear down that portion of the building and the Bear’s Den will be relocated to an as yet undesignated location. Whether we’ll be operating out of a store room, a closet or out of folding table and ice chests we really don’t know.”

            The Kodiak Police Department is currently investigating an alleged assault that occurred downtown early Sunday morning. Kodiak resident Dan Unruh was found severely beaten around 4:30 a.m. outside the Village Bar. Police officers and EMS personnel were summoned to the area and transported Unruh to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center. He was later medevaced to Anchorage where he is currently in the hospital.
             Police Chief T.C. Kamai said little is known about the events leading up to when Unruh was found, and the police department is asking that community members who may have knowledge come forward to help with the investigation. 
              “We know we have one subject who was involved in an altercation, that’s been corroborated by other witnesses. But there are also two other people seen in the area, we do not know if they were involved in the assault or not at this point. We don’t believe so, but we know they were in the area and they are potentially witnesses.”
              Video footage taken from the downtown area has helped put together bits and pieces of the early morning incident, but Kamai said no suspects have been identified.
