Air Station Kodiak Crew Medevacs Three From Tanker PDF Print E-mail

            Three injured Indian men aboard a Chinese-flagged chemical tanker were successfully medevac'd this (Monday) afternoon by an Air Station Kodiak Coast Guard helicopter crew about 80 miles south of Adak.

            The MH-60 Jayhawk and an HC-130 Hercules left Kodiak on Sunday night after receiving a request for a medevac at 4:15 p.m. Meanwhile, the tanker Bum Chin altered course towards Adak to lessen the distance the helicopter had to fly. The Jayhawk and ship rendezvoused at about 12:30 this afternoon. Thirty-five mile-per-hour winds, 12-foot seas and snow showers were reported at the time.

            Coast Guard spokeswoman Sara Francis said the three crewmen suffered injuries after a rogue wave hit the 478-foot tanker, knocking them down. The chief officer received head injuries; an able seaman sustained a compound fracture of his left leg and wounds to his forehead and left hand; while the fifth engineer sustained injuries to his left leg, lower back and rib cage.

            The men, reportedly in stable condition, were flown back to Adak, where they were transferred to the C-130 for the flight to Anchorage.

            The Bum Chin was en route from Ulsan, South Korea, to San Francisco, and has since resumed its course.

The (Fireworks) Show Must Go On PDF Print E-mail

            Kodiak residents get one more chance to see a professional aerial fireworks display this year. Dense fog postponed, and then cancelled the Independence Day display on July 4th, with low clouds and rain cancelling the display on Labor Day weekend.

            Now, organizers are going to try again on New Year's Eve.

            Mark and Diana Holt, who set off the city of Kodiak's fireworks each year, said they are scheduling the show for 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. They said that would be early enough to bring kids out for the display and get home in time for grown-up activities at midnight.

            As usual, the display will be fired off from Near Island over the channel. The Fred Zharoff Memorial Bridge will be closed one-half hour before the show, and re-open right afterwards.

            The Holts are asking everyone to do a "good weather" dance for that night, but if the display is rained out again, the fallback date will be Saturday night, January 3rd, also at 8 p.m.

            They say they will let KMXT know by 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon if the show is a go or not, so keep your radio tuned to 100.1.

            Four men, including two from Kodiak, are seeking appointment to the Superior Court judgeship here. The advancement of Joel Bolger to the Alaska Court of Appeals earlier this year created the vacancy.

            They are Steve Cole, who is currently the Kodiak court magistrate; Stephen Wallace, the current Kodiak District Attorney; Robert Owens, an assistant municipal attorney in Anchorage; and Mark Osterman, who is in private practice in Kenai.

            Cole is 55 years old, and has lived in Alaska for 34 years. Osterman is 51 and been a resident in the state for 10 years. Owens is 54 and been in Alaska 26 years and Wallace is 50, and lived in the state 26 years.

            The Alaska Bar Association has already rated the four applicants, with Wallace scoring 4-point-2 on a scale of one to five. Cole and Owens were rated at 4-point-1. Osterman had a rating of 2-point-1.

            The Alaska Judicial Council is seeking public comment on the applicants' qualifications. They can be made at the council's web site .

            The council will interview all four applicants and then hold a public hearing to take comments before selecting two or more to be advanced to Governor Sarah Palin, who will then have 45 days to make an appointment.
