            Placing the new Kodiak public library at the top of Signal Hill overlooking town necessitated the cutting down of dozens of large spruce trees. But while some may go up in smoke, they won't go to waste. Paul Converse says the Kodiak Public Library Association has brokered a deal between the city, a contractor and the Salvation Army to get the best use from the fallen trees.

 

 

-- (Trees 1                   36 sec              "We've taken down a bunch of trees ... distribute it to the needy.")

 

            Converse said he wasn't quite sure how many cords or board feet of wood will come from clearing the site, but thinks the firewood transfer will take more than one dump truck:

 

-- (Trees 2                   16 sec              "I think we've got roughly 50 logs ... going to the Salvation Army.")

 

            The site prep has come just in time for the latest visit by project architects later this week:

 

-- (Trees 3                   23 sec              "We'll have another public meeting ... start the groundwork.")

 

            The Friday night meeting will begin at 7 p.m., and will feature a 3-D virtual "fly-through" of the latest design, which Converse says is at about the 60-percent stage of completion.
