Thanksgiving Comes Costly in the Villages PDF Print E-mail

            Gathering ingredients for a Thanksgiving feast may seem simple to folks living along Kodiak’s road system – simply go to the grocery store. But things are not quite as easy if you’re living in Karluk, a village on the west side of Kodiak with less than 50 people. KMXT’s news intern, Marina Cummiskey, recently returned from Karluk and found out what Thanksgiving preparation is like in a remote community.
            Karluk has no local store, and all of the residents’ groceries have to be ordered from shops in Kodiak, and then flown in by small planes. This way of getting groceries proves to be more complicated, and a little more expensive around the holidays.
            “The dried goods we have mailed out, so it’s just postal rates, but anything that’s cold or frozen we have to get shipped out at 90, I think it’s 92 cents a pound.”
            That’s Russ Scotter, a teacher at the Karluk School, who’s been living there for seven years. Scotter celebrates Thanksgiving, and his traditional dinner includes a turkey, albeit an expensive one.

            Thursday is Thanksgiving – a day rooted in gratefulness but often centered on magnificent meals. But for some Kodiak families, creating the stereotypical turkey dinner isn’t very feasible, or affordable. For those in need, a number of community organizations have stepped up to the plate and will provide meals or ingredients to help make sure every family, no matter their budget, can enjoy the holiday.
            The concept of helping those less fortunate around Thanksgiving time isn’t new, especially for the American Legion. Club Manager Helen Hartman said the Legion has served Thanksgiving dinner to the community for more than 40 years.
            “We have all the trimmings – turkey, ham, stuffing, gravy, potatoes, rolls. The Auxillary donates pies. We get most of our turkeys all donated from some people from the community and also our Legion members bring in turkeys and hams.”
            The dinner is free and open to the whole community, and Hartman said folks can stop by and eat between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
            Pat Branson is the executive director at the Kodiak Senior Center and said the Legion also packages up to-go dinners for seniors in the community. She said Senior Center staff will pick up the meals from the Legion on Thanksgiving Day and deliver them to seniors that need a meal and can’t necessarily leave home to get one.
            Another holiday dining option is available at the Brother Francis Shelter. Executive Director Monte Hawver said they’ll be holding their free Thanksgiving meal around 8:30 p.m.

            It was a day that forever changed Kodiak. On March 27, 1964, a 9.2 magnitude earthquake shook Alaska and generated a tsunami that washed away coastal communities, forcing towns like Kodiak to rebuild in the years that followed. It’s been almost 50 years since that Good Friday earthquake, and The Kodiak Daily Mirror and Baranov Museum wanted to do something to commemorate those events.
            Enter “9.2: Kodiak and the World’s Second Largest Earthquake,” a new book published by the newspaper with the help of the museum. Mirror Editor James Brooks said the collaborative project was about a year in the making, and seemed like a good way to honor the 50th anniversary. 
           “Fifty years ago the newspaper published a book of photographs from the disaster and proceeds from that were donated to reconstruction efforts. So as this came up we realized that we wanted to do a book for the ’64 earthquake for the 50th anniversary for it. And this covers basically photos from the archives in the Baranov museum that we tried to reach in and find photos that hadn’t been published before. There’s been a lot of photos that keep coming up again and again, but we wanted to reach into the archives and find things that really haven’t been seen before, and I think we’ve done that.”

            Kodiak High School has produced some talented athletes over the years, and many have continued on to play collegiate sports. Senior Hannah Wandersee has those aspirations, and has been busy reviewing game tapes and talking with college coaches about her athletic future.
            Wandersee was the outside hitter for the high school’s volleyball team, and just wrapped up a record-breaking season that culminated with a third place state finish – the highest Kodiak has ever placed in the state volleyball tournament.
           KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs caught up with Wandersee and talked about the past season and her hopes for the future.
