Coming up this week, reaction to the ballot initiative to protect Bristol Bay salmon that passed last week, the Canadian acknowledgment that mines on rivers that cross from the border into Alaska is of little comfort to some Alaskans, and more, coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KDLG's Dave Bendinger in Dillingham, Coast Alaska's Ed Schoenfeld in Juneau, KFSK's Angela Denning in Petersburg and KBBI's Shady Grove Oliver in Homer.

    A major domestic shipping company in Alaska is breaking up. Horizon Lines will sell off its routes in Alaska and Hawaii after years of mounting debt. 
    Horizon started moving cargo in Alaska 50 years ago. Back then, the company was still known as Sea-Land. And they hadn’t gone through the string of mergers and sales that have become common in the shipping industry. 
    As Horizon has changed hands, it’s been stacking up debt -- more than a half a billion dollars’ worth.

Fiscal Situation 'Beyond Critical,' Says Juneau Lobbyist

           With the legislative session quickly approaching, Kodiak’s governing bodies are trying to get the best picture possible for what things might look like in Juneau this year. On Monday night, the City Council heard from its lobbyist, Ray Gillespie, about what’s forecasted for the upcoming session.
           Gillespie said times are tough, and the biggest issue will likely be how to fund public services statewide.
            “When the legislature adjourned last April, their forecast average price per barrel of oil was $105 per barrel. Even at that price they had to authorize a withdrawl form our savings account of $1.4 billion. That’s at $105 per barrel.”   
            Gillespie said the price per barrel on Monday was just over $79 per barrel.
            “What that does is almost doubles that draw that we’re going to have to make from our savings. So if our average price goes to $95 per barrel, we’re going to draw $2.2 billion out of our savings. If it’s at $85 we’re going to draw $2.9 billion out of savings. That’s a huge some of money.”
             He said that is just for last year. If you combine it with the current fiscal year, plus the budget the legislature will be working on during the session, it’s possible the state could spend half of its savings within the next year and a half.
             “That’s $6 billion, we have about $11.5 to $12 billion in our various savings accounts. So the situation is beyond critical.”

    Pavlof Volcano is awake again on the Alaska Peninsula. The Alaska Volcano Observatory reports that Pavlof, quote-”has entered a new phase of eruptive activity.”

    Last night [Wednesday] the volcano was upgraded from ‘normal’ to ‘watch’ status -- the middle tier of their system, indicating heightened unrest.

    The AVO reports that Pavlof is spewing ash up to 9,000 feet above sea level, visible in neighboring Cold Bay. Scientists also saw increased seismic activity at the volcano yesterday [Wednesday] afternoon.

    Pavlof is one of the most active volcanoes in the state -- but it’s been quiet since June, when it erupted for about a week. During that event, Pavlof sent up an ash plume more than 20,000 feet and caused a string of local flight cancellations. There is no word of any flight problems so far from the latest eruption.

    The volcano’s eruptions have been known to escalate quickly, according to the AVO. They can last just a few days, or as long as several weeks.

Mudslides Slow Traffic on Rezanof, Chiniak Highway
Wednesday, 12 November 2014

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

           Rezanof Drive West was reported blocked by a mud slide near Lash Dock in Womens Bay late this afternoon. It's the second slide to hamper traffic on the street today. At about 6:15 this morning a mud slide near Pier 2 blocked the westbound lane for about a half hour.

            Likewise, slides on the Chiniak Highway, near the American River have also been reported and the Department of Transportation is responding.

           With more than three-inches of rain in the past 48 hours, the soil along the hillsides is saturated and more slides are likely. The Kodiak Police Department advised motorists to drive carefully and to watch for heavy equipment clearing the road.
