            The Alaska Marine Highway System is adding a new stop to its schedule this week. The Spruce Island village of Ouzinkie, which for years has watched the ferry Tustumena sail right past town as it makes runs between Kodiak and Port Lions, will get service starting Friday.

 

            Jeremy Woodrow is a spokesman for the ferry system.

 

-- (Ferry 1                   26 sec              "The first ferry will call on ... receive direct ferry service.")

 

            The new service is made possible by recently constructed waterfront facilities in the village.

 

-- (Ferry 2                   10 sec              "The community actually ... Tustumena specifically in mind.")

 

            The Tustumena made a trial run to the village recently, paving the way for the scheduled service. Like Port Lions, the dock at Ouzinkie will not be able to handle the larger ferry Kennicott, which generally serves Kodiak part time during the summer.

            While operating on the winter schedule, the Tusty will call on Ouzinkie once a month, but in the summer, Woodrow says it'll be every other Friday.

 

-- (Ferry 3                   15 sec              "Yeah, actually the full schedule will ... Port Lions, to Homer.")

 

            He said the addition of Ouzinkie to its ports of call doesn't change much elsewhere in the ferry system schedule or operations:

 

-- (Ferry 4                   28 sec              "The Tusty, when it sails from ... extra cost to the ferry system.")

 

            An adult fare is $33 each way between Ouzinkie and Kodiak.
