    A new project from the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault launched in February is aimed at helping parents talk to their teens about healthy relationships. “Talk Now, Talk Often, Alaska” offers parents and caregivers resources to help them broach the touchy subject of relationships, and try to break through the tough shell teens sometimes have around them when it comes to talking to the older crowd.
    Claudia Plesa is a project coordinator witt the Alaska Network.
    “This is a brand new effort. You know, we do a lot of victim services here at the Alaska Network. We work with a lot of organizations to provide those services. Another piece of our work is to prevent violence before it happens. And part of our work is to work with teens to inform other teens. So peer-to-peer kind of education around what is a healthy relationship. What we have found lately is that parents aren’t part of that conversation, and kids are learning what a relationship is, or what a healthy relationship is from the media or from their friends. So we wanted to provide some resources for parents to really have them start being part of that conversation.”
    Trina Bashem of Kodiak is one of the first parents to try out Talk Now Talk Often. She works at the Kodiak Womens Resource and Crisis Center, and felt this program would fit well with her work.

Kodiak Coast Guard Crews Kept Busy Out West
Monday, 03 March 2014

    A mariner possibly suffering from appendicitis was medevac’ed from a vessel near Unalaska on Saturday.
    The Coast Guard sent an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from the cutter Alex Haley to hoist the 40-year-old man from the 559-foot bulk carrier Ken Ei, a Panama-flagged vessel. It was about 100 miles northwest of Unalaska at the time.
    The man was suffering from abdominal pain, and the Coast Guard duty flight surgeon determined he might have had appendicitis. The crewman was transported first to Dutch Harbor, where a larger MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter took him to Cold Bay to meet a commercial medflight for further treatment in Anchorage.
    There were reportedly 40-mile-an-hour winds and seven-foot seas on scene during the medevac.
    The Coast Guard forward-deploys crews from Air Station Kodiak around the Bering Sea to cut response times during this busy time of year. Saturday’s was their third medevac of past week, and their eighth in the region in the new year.

           Last week KMXT told you about marine debris clean ups happening across Kodiak and how they are being funded.
           Last summer Kodiak Island Trails Network cleaned more than 80,000 tons of debris from islands in the northern part of the archipelago, and is hoping to have similar success on Shuyak Island and the northeast portion of Afognak this year.
            The amount being cleaned is certainly impressive, but handling the debris once it’s removed is another challenge in itself. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs has the final installment of our series on marine debris, and what happens to the items after they’re cleaned from the beaches.

Lady Bears Wrap Up Perfect Regular Season

    The Kodiak High School Bears girls basketball team wrapped up a perfect regular season over the weekend by sweeping the Wasilla Warriors here in Kodiak.
    On Friday, the Bears trounced the Warriors 50-to-29 before a raucous hometown crowd. Hannah Wandersee scored 19 and Carissa Cannon dropped in 14 in the win, including both Kodiak three-pointers.
    The final home game on Saturday was a bit closer, for a time. The Warriors were within four at one point, but could not maintain their momentum and the Lady Bears ran away with the win, 62-46.
    Kodiak is a perfect 22-and- over all, and 10-0 in the Northern Lights Conference. They are ranked number 1 in the state and in the NLC, where they will get a first round bye in the upcoming regional tournament.

    The Kodiak boys will also get a first round bye in the boys NLC tournament after finishing second in the region. They split with the Warriors over the weekend up in Wasilla. The Bears rolled to a 21-point win Friday, 70-to-49. On Saturday, foul trouble in the paint allowed the Warriors to work the ball inside and steal the win 65-60.

    The Northern Lights Conference tournament will begin Thursday at Colony High up in the Valley. The complete brackets for both the girls and the boys game times will be released today. The state tournament at the Sullivan Sports Arena in Anchorage will be two weeks later, starting March 20th.
