    The unidentified human remains discovered on Shuyak Island Monday was found by the executive director of Kodiak’s Island Trails Network, whose crew was collecting marine debris on Shuyak and nearby Afognak Island this summer.
    Andy Schroeder says he was alone in his skiff and scouting the next beach his crew of a dozen would clean when he spotted the body.
    “And when I approached I saw human remains. Badly decomposed, but fully clothed, in sort of the mid-tide level on the beach. I came up for a closer look just to verify that I was seeing what I thought I saw. And upon realizing that I went back to the Island Sea and contacted the State Troopers.”
    He said the Troopers responded quickly with a float plan out of Kodiak, and his crew helped with the transfer of the remains from the beach.
    “The whole operations took less than two hours from the time I discovered the remains to the time it landed back in Kodiak. Our crews responded and were able to assist, and I think anybody would have done the same thing in that situation.”
    Alaska State Trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters said there was no identification with the body and that the State Medical Examiner will try to determine the person’s identity and cause of death. Schroeder said the body was dressed like a commercial fisherman.
    “The victim was fully clothed, wearing chest waders, a rain jacket and gloves. I could see, nevertheless that the body was badly decomposed.”
    Shuyak Island is 50 miles north of Kodiak City.

    The mayor regularly makes proclamations to draw attention or recognize people or events or causes that they feel are important to the community. At tonight’s Kodiak City Council meeting, Mayor Pat Branson will make a proclamation of something that is near and dear to her, as the Senior Citizens of Kodiak executive director.
    “It’s National Senior Center Month and it’s sponsored by the National Council on Aging, and the National Institute of Senior Centers. And it happens every September. And so each September our agency puts on extra activities to celebrate our senior center that’s been around in Kodiak since 1973.”
    In recognition, she says the Kodiak Senior Center will have many special activities this month.
    “Well, we have trivia every Friday, and we have a wonderful grand prize: a NOOK that’s going to be given away on the 26th, the last Friday of the month. We have walks continuing each Friday. We have Breakfast for Brains going on each Wednesday morning at 9 o’clock, pinochle in the afternoon, games in the afternoon. Yoga starts again with Veronica Costa-Bolton, she does a great job and that starts on the 15th. We have exercise on Tuesday and Thursday, and that’s exercise with Katrina. Each Thursday we have our computer classes starting up. We have lunch and learn going on this month as well, story telling. Lots of things going on.”
    The seniors who frequent the center are also participating in a photography challenge, as Branson explains.
    “All month we have had seniors bring in their pictures of when they were young, with their siblings or their parents and we have those posted on our bulletin board. And we have a guessing game going on as to who can guess the people when they’re much younger in the photos on our bulletin board. And that’s kind of fun to see everybody’s picture up there.”
    The Kodiak Senior Center also has its own band, the Whipper-Snappers, who play every Friday at 1 p.m.
    Tune in to the Kodiak City Council meeting tonight on KMXT to learn more about the Mayor’s proclamation of National Senior Center Month. We’re broadcasting it live at 7:30.
