    An unexploded military bomb found on the beach near Chignik was disposed of by specialists from Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks on Monday. Staff Sargent Lucas Stephens and Specialist. Vincent Wallace of the 716th Explosive Ordinance Disposal Company were transported to the remote beach by an Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk. It was discovered by a beachcomber in Mitrofania Bay who reported it to the state troopers.
    The team examined the bomb and determined it was possibly a smoke bomb. After blowing it up with C-4 explosives, fragments were collected for further analysis.
