           The newspaper of record for pretty much the entire planet has taken notice of a Kodiak mother of four. The New York Times featured Petal Ruch Wednesday in an article about her staring in the latest advertising campaign for Vaseline Intensive Rescue Clinical Therapy body lotion.

            The web site Vaseline set up for the advertising campaign is: "Prescribe the Nation ," which opens with shots of Kodiak and Ruch. It will have more video content soon.

            The media and advertising section article in the Times says the web site will feature short videos of Ruch "prescribing" the lotion to friends and acquaintances here in Kodiak. The story says that Clinical Therapy is a background player in the vignettes, and that the focus is on the residents of Kodiak and the town itself. It says, "There are shots of moody blue-gray skies and sea lions, and stories about residents...."

            The article says the Vaseline campaign is building on social networks and viral marketing trends. The commercials have started airing on national TV and will eventually go international. As soon as the broadcast schedule is available, we'll post it here on KMXT.org.

            The Coast Guard is monitoring the transit of the fishing vessel Golden Fleece today to ensure they reach Kodiak safely, after the Seattle-based boat’s propulsion system broke down early this morning (Thursday).

            The 90-foot Golden Fleece began taking on water through a shaft seal. One of the vessel's two shafts had sheared off and became dislodged from its normal position in the shaft tube. The vessel's crew was able to keep up with the flow using a dewatering pump. The water was contained behind a watertight bulkhead. One of the vessel’s two engines is currently working.

Financial Disclosure Exemptions Split Statewide PDF Print E-mail

            Voters in the Kodiak Island Borough weren't the only ones to vote down a measure that would allow officials to use less stringent financial disclosure forms. Propositions were on the ballots in nine Alaska communities, and it failed in five of them.

            The movement to exempt officials in municipalities around the state is the result of the Alaska State Legislature passing anti-corruption legislation last year. It requires elected officials, some appointed officials and some hired administrators to fill out a 12-page disclosure that requires the listing of all their financial dealings that total 1,000-dollars or more, as well as those of their spouses and dependent children. It has been called intrusive by some, and is widely considered to be the reason for a dearth of candidates in Kodiak elections.

            A community can exempt its elected officials from the more strident reporting requirements by a vote of its residents. If passed, the community can fill out the simpler and less detailed forms with their own clerk's office.

            But, the residents of Kodiak voted the measure down 1,070 to 985 on Tuesday.

            Unofficial results show that similar measures also failed in Seward by 46 votes, North Pole by 40, Wrangell by 195, and Haines by 163.

            The people of Sitka, Ketchikan and the city of Kenai passed measures exempting their elected officials, however, and in Delta Junction, an exemption measure is ahead by five votes. Residents of the Denali Borough will vote on the issue November 4th.
