The Aleutian and Pribilof Islands are no stranger to strong winds and rough seas. And that's exactly what they can expect Friday, when a high-powered storm hits the Bering Sea. 
There's no doubt that the low-pressure system charging across the Pacific Ocean right now is massive. And if it reaches its full potential.
"This could be the strongest storm to hit the Bering [Sea] in possibly decades," said Dave Snider, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. He's basing his judgment on barometric pressure, which should drop fast -- breaking a record low set in Unalaska in 1977. 
Besides that, though, the storm will follow a familiar pattern in the Bering Sea. 
As pressure drops, winds will gather to hurricane force. And without any land in the way to block them, the gusts will create large waves -- up to 50 feet on the open water.
Mariners are being asked not to take any chances.

          Just days after many Alaska legislators were voted into office, the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly unanimously approved a contract for a Juneau lobbyist during the upcoming legislative session.
           During last night’s regular meeting, the contract for lobbyist Mark Hickey was approved, along with a $5,000 pay increase. Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said Hickey has been the borough’s lobbyist for 14 years, and has received the same salary of $40,000 for eight years. He said his work has been truly effective in Juneau and believed the raise was warranted.
           “He is probably highly endorsed by Senator Gary Stevens and by Representative Austerman, I think past and present assembly members who have worked with him have found him to be real approachable and very professional. I think we’ll probably see the need for his value more this year with potentially a new governor, probably a bunch of new agency folks as well if there is a new governor and Kodiak has a freshman legislator as well, Mr. Hickey is familiar with her.”

          Kodiak is no stranger to tales from the sea and many folks have their own to tell. One Alaskan writer is sharing some of his own tales with his recently published book, Dead Reckoning.
           Dave Atcheson came to Alaska more than 30 years ago for an experience that now serves as the foundation of his new memoir.
           “I was 19 when I got here and went commercial fishing aboard a boat with a crotchety old skipper. And he needed two deck hands two days before the season started – and that should have been a clue that it probably wasn’t the best situation. But I did, I fell in love with Alaska and knew this was the place for me, even though it was a very trying summer onboard that boat.”   
           Atcheson worked in various commercial fisheries for about 15 years and said he always knew he wanted to write about his experiences. He kept detailed journals and finally decided to make something of the material.

Coming up this week, what Tuesday's election means for Alaska's seafood plants, there'll soon be a nice new place to park your boat when visiting Sitka, and how to make co-management work?
