At last week's Kodiak Island Borough Board of Education meeting, the district's director of facilities, Greg Hecker, gave a brief report on the progress of the Kodiak High School's new addition.

“We've been assured that the scheduled time lines that have been brought forward are holding," he said. "So we're still looking at getting in the school on or about December 10th, for a moving-in over Christmas break.”

As the most visible part of the school, its southwest face, nears completion, Hecker said the inside is nearing completion.

"The fourth and the third floor are essentially complete. 98 percent, final punch list and  cleaning is about all that's left for those two floors," he said. "So it's moving along. It doesn't look like it from the outside, but hopefully we'll get staff in there soon.”

The next phase will begin in the new year, when the addition that includes the front entrance will be started.

Researcher Uses Mice to Track History

          Despite often being a household pest, mice may hold key information about Alaska’s historical past. That’s the theory of one undergraduate researcher at Cornell University in New York, and why she’s asking folks in Kodiak to help collect mice this fall.
           Camille Mangiaratti is using mouse DNA to track the history of colonization in Alaska.  She said mice are a well studied animal all around the world, and have traveled with humans for more than 12,000 years. Much like tracking ancestral DNA in people, Mangiaratti will use mice to see what DNA strands are present and from what countries.
            “So basically you can look for signatures in mouse DNA, in the mitochondria specifically, because these signatures sort of preserve themselves throughout time and we can basically use them as a genetic signal for the past – to look into the colonization history of the mice that traveled with the humans. So basically it tells us when people got there, and who got there and basically how successful these established communities were.”

Monday, 27 October 2014

The Kodiak High School Bears volleyball team went 8-for-8 in pool play Friday at a huge tournament up in Anchorage and wound up finishing fifth in the Gold Bracket on Saturday.
The Bears downed Grace, North Pole, Service and Nikiski on a busy Friday, sweeping each school two games to none.
They had to turn around and play early on Saturday morning and defeated Service, only to fall in the next game to eventual champion South Anchorage. 
In the consolation bracket, the Bears fell to East Anchorage and were bumped from the double-elimination bracket.
Kodiak's Isabelle Riina was named to the all-tournament team.

    Coming up this week, the Coast Guard gets busy as soon as the crab season begins, we hear how one CDQ group is doing, and maybe limitless power for False Pass to process fish and light up the town. We had help this week from KDLG's Mike Mason in Dillingham and KUCB's Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska.

City Approves Capital Wish List

          Alaska’s legislative session is still months away, but Kodiak’s City Council is already gearing up for it. Last night the council unanimously approved its list of capital improvement projects – a wish list of sorts for state and federal funding.
          First up on the list is Mill Bay Road pavement rehabilitation. City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said the hope was to originally replace the entire stretch of pavement between the downtown “Y” and Island Lake Road. However, the project will instead patch up certain sections of the road, much like what has already been done in some areas along the route. The result was a cheaper project for the city, with a similar end goal.
          “We were able to reduce that request down from $7 million as a rebuild from the Y to Island Lake Road, which is that most heavily traveled – each section of the road has its own traffic count but we have up to 12,000 cars a day in that stretch. So we were able to reduce it by not having to replace the whole road bed and just do a rehab.”   
           Now the project is estimated at $3.5 million.
