          Despite the strong opinions of some Kodiak Island Borough Assembly members, a new guard rail will be installed on the corner of Monashka Circle and Bayview Drive.
           It wasn’t the guard rail itself that some assembly members didn’t approve of, but rather the fact that the borough would be funding it. Assemblyman Aaron Griffin said he felt allocating $18,000 beyond the Bayview Service Area’s budget could set a financial precedent and pave the way for other service areas to ask the borough for additional funds.

          A Kodiak school has been recognized as one of the top schools in the nation in terms of academic excellence. Peterson Elementary School was one of only three schools in Alaska to be designated as a Blue Ribbon School for 2014 – an honor awarded by the U.S. Department of Education to K-12 schools throughout the U.S. 
          Principal Beth Cole said this is the first time Peterson has received this recognition, and it took almost a full year to work through the nomination and application process. She said the school was nominated for the award in January, based on its Alaska School Performance Index scores.
         “So we did realize that we made gains and we recognized our high achievement, but we also had to maintain another year of high achievement to actually receive this award.”   
           In addition maintaining high scores, the school also had to submit a thorough application to the U.S. Department of Education. From there, Cole said it was a long waiting game, but last week U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the 2014 Blue Ribbon Schools, and Peterson made the cut.

Monday, 06 October 2014

Jay Barrett/KMXT
    Due to construction work to replace Kodiak’s Pier 1, the state ferry Tustumena will be docking at Pier 2, also known as City Dock. The Tusty will be joining the ferry Kennicott at its usual tie-up spot.
    However, passengers will still check in at the ferry terminal office at Pier 1.
    The change went into effect yesterday, and is expected to continue until May.
    Here's a link to more information.

XC, Football Wrap Up Seasons
Monday, 06 October 2014

Jay Barrett/KMXT
    Two high school sports seasons have ended. The football team got to a 500 record with a blowout win against a small Kachemak Bay school, and Kodiak’s fastest runner took his third straight state title.
    Levi Thomet cruised to a comfortable victory in the state 4-A cross country championships in Anchorage, and led the team to the state title on Saturday. The Kodiak boys scored 49 points to easily outdistance West Anchorage and West Valley Fairbanks in the standings. Levi Fried notched a fourth place in the race, Keith Osowski was seventh, Michael Parnell was 21st, and Jack Hannah was right behind in 22nd.
    Thomet’s time of 15-minutes 10-seconds was a comfortable 33-seconds ahead of second place. Fried finished in 16-09 and Osowski, Parnell and Hannah notched times of 16:23, 16:52 and 16:54, respectively.
    In the girls’ 4-A race, Zoe Bigley placed 14th with a time of 19-minutes 43-seconds. Melissa DeGuzman was 37th in 20:35.
    The winner of the girls’ race was, predictably Allie Ostrander of Kenai, who, like Kodiak’s Thomet, took a third straight state title. She cruised to another easy win with a time of 17-minutes 6-seconds, which was a minute and 38-seconds ahead of her nearest competitor.

    On the volleyball court here at home, the Bears split with Northern Lights Conference rival Soldotna, falling in four games Friday night, but coming back to win in three on Saturday.

    On the Homer high school gridiron, the Bears wrapped up their season with a 65-nothing shellacking of tiny Voznesenka. They finish the season with a 4-and-4 mark, though only 1-and-2 in the conference.

            The long-awaited fisheries debate between Alaska’s candidates for U.S. Senate was expected to be a spirited one, but it was the state’s candidates for U.S. House that brought the most heat to the Kodiak stage Wednesday night. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs has more.
            In a fiery debate between Democratic Candidate Forrest Dunbar and long time Congressman Don Young, topics strayed from fisheries issues to accusations, belittling statements and off-hand remarks.
            When answering questions from a media panel and audience members, both candidates focused on the issues and did not find much to disagree on. But it was the opportunity to ask questions of each other that raised the most eyebrows, specifically when Young admitted he had no serious questions for Dunbar.    
             “Over to you Congressman.”

             “Oh I don’t really have any serious questions for Mr. Dunbar.”    
             Dunbar later took a jab at Young’s unpreparedness before asking a question of his own.
             “Unlike Congressman Young I actually brought serious questions, because I think this is a serious debate.”
