           There are a handful of Kodiak locals that have made it into the reality TV spotlight in recent years, and now there’s an opportunity for even more to have their 15 minutes of fame.
            Jason Watt is an executive producer for Al Roker Entertainment, the company that recently put out a casting call for a new documentary series that will highlight individuals with extreme relationships with the sea.
            “These are people who might feel as or more comfortable on the water as they do on land. That they not only make their living from the ocean but it might be a way of life.”    
             Ideally, he said this could include fishermen, liveaboards or folks who have pursued the sea as a passion their whole life.
             “We have a very open mind to what could fit into this category and we’re excited to hear from people who have a way of life, by design, unlike any other.”
             Watt said the company’s time frame is fairly flexible, and they want the casting process to be an organic one. He said they are willing to wait for the right people with a compelling life story to share.
               Al Roker Entertainment is the company behind the popular Coast Guard Alaska series, which airs on the Weather Channel.
               “And so we’ve had a presence in Alaska for a long time and because of that we’ve just as a company become aware of just how rich stories are in Alaska.”

           The Kodiak Island Borough is revamping its codes and regulations and is asking for the community’s input.
           Back in 2008 the borough adopted a new comprehensive plan for the future growth and development in the archipelago. Bob Pederson is the community development director for the borough and said it’s common for communities to revisit their land use regulations to help implement those new plans.
           Pederson said there are quite a few changes included in the code, but a lot of it has to do with the fact that portions of the current code are outdated.
           “Most of the borough code was developed in the lat 60s with the land management aspects and it hasn’t been comprehensively looked at since. There have been a number of amendments and updates over the years – there were a couple of attempts over the years to rewrite the code that didn’t come to fruition. And so in some ways the code is dated. There are terms used in the code that are not defined and then there are defined terms that are not shown elsewhere in the code. Some of the, what I would call, administrative provisions – how you handle and process things – are not clearly spelled out and that’s led to some subjective decision making over the years and sometimes maybe not always the most consistent decision making.”   
             For instance, portions of the new code deal with regulations for wind turbines and solar panels – things that weren’t around during the 1960s.

          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.
