          Last week Senior Citizen's of Kodiak Incorporated was in the news for receiving state-wide recognition for their services. This week the organization is dealing with flood damage from a broken sprinkler system at the Senior Center.

            Executive Director Pat Branson described what happened last Saturday when Kodiak temperatures dipped down to single digits:


--          (Senior Sprinkler 1                                    "Well last week ... wasn't a fire.")


            Branson went on to describe the extent of the damage.

--          (Senior Sprinkler 2                     "The water damage ... we're working.")

            She said an outpouring of support by local businesses and agencies helped turn the situation around.


--          (Senior Sprinkler 3                                         "We had the ... on my office.")

            Branson is choosing to look at the positive side of the sprinkler situation. She said that insurance will probably cover the repairs.

--          (Senior Sprinkler 4                      "Well, as my ... provide our programs.")


            The source of the problem was a five-by-five inch T-shaped pipe that was insulated, but burst as a result of the low temperatures. The dollar figure for the damage is not yet known.
