           Crab Fest 2014 attracted a number of folks to the downtown area over the weekend, and even some visitors to the island. One of those visitors was Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell – a current Republican candidate for U.S. Senate.
           Treadwell’s trip to Kodiak wasn’t his first. In fact, he’s been to the island many times, more recently for a fundraiser this past winter. This particular visit was to attend Crab Fest, but also to take part in a fisheries debate that was supposed to happen over the weekend.
            “And neither of my Republican opponents wanted to show up so we instead set something up at the Fisherman’s Hall, the harbormaster’s office, and invited fishermen, their families, and anyone else to come in and talk.”   
            Treadwell said his two biggest primary opponents, Joe Miller and Dan Sullivan, are both good men, but neither have a sufficient background and knowledge on fisheries issues.
            “What I can say to people in this business is that when I first landed in Alaska, 1974, Governor Wally Hickel was advocating, with many other Alaskans for the 200-mile limit. He put me to work helping to write the arguments that ultimately carried the day in 1976 that got us the 200-mile limit. I then wrote several very intensive papers in college including my bachelor’s thesis on fishing in Bristol Bay. I then went on to graduate school, and I’ve worked as a citizen or in government or on science boards to help improve our science capacity, to help get a CDQ program here and bring more jobs home. And I’ve been working with the fishing industry my entire time in Alaska.”

Assembly Will Talk Logging Tonight
Thursday, 29 May 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

           Tonight the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly will meet for a work session and discuss logging at length. The assembly is set to hear from Robert Deal, a research forester and ecosystem services team leader from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service. Deal is set to present his thoughts on logging practices, specifically what has been done in southeast Alaska, and how it might apply to logging being done, or could be done, here in Kodiak.
            In recent weeks there has been a series of community events regarding Leisnoi’s logging practices on its privately-owned land in Chiniak. There was a public meeting earlier this month and a protest outside the Afognak Native Corporation headquarters on Near Island. A new group, the Kodiak Conservation Society, has formed in opposition to the logging and hopes to present aerial photos of the logged areas in Chiniak during tonight’s work session.
            Likewise, Leisnoi President and CEO Von Veeh has requested an opportunity to address current timber practices and hopefully shed some light on what is being done on their land.
            Tonight’s work session will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the borough conference room and will also include a final borough budget review by the assembly, including nonprofit funding.

           Sewer rates are set to rise this summer. During the City Council’s regular meeting on Thursday the council voted in favor of a 5 percent rate increase per year for five years.
           The increase comes after the city contracted with CH2M Hill for a sewer rate study to consider the personnel, capital and other costs associated with operating the sewer system. The results of that study were presented during the council’s May 20 work session.
           City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said it is a very complex and aging sewer collection system, and the wastewater treatment plant is going to need significant repairs in the not so distant future.   
           “So we have to also anticipate those critical things that are coming down the road. The compost facility, which the design is being completed at this point, and we need to start looking at refurbishment of the wastewater treatment plant. We’ve got our NPDES permit – that’s our discharge permit into the waters of Kodiak from our wastewater treatment plant. Those regulations have changed substantially since ours were issued and we’re going to be requiring some changes, we don’t know what those look like.”

            Crab Fest 2014 wrapped up yesterday and it was a different festival than most folks were used to. Last year Golden Wheel, the long-time vendor for rides, said they would not be returning to Kodiak, but Anchorage-based Tons of Fun Entertainment did make the trip and brought with it slew of new activities and games. Even better, the sun made an appearance during all five days and more than 20 food vendors lined the midway to make sure festival attendees were well-fed.
            But to really get the scoop on this year’s Crab Fest, KMXT sent reporter Brianna Gibbs, and news intern, Alex Petropavlovskiy, downtown have a bit of fun.
