           The Ebola virus has been making headlines worldwide, and recently state officials have joined the discussion to make sure Alaskans know what measures are being done to prevent a spread of deadly virus in the last frontier. The discussion turned local during the Borough Assembly’s regular meeting Thursday night when Assemblywoman Carol Austerman read a statement from Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center regarding Ebola. Austerman serves on Providence’s community advisory board.
            In the statement, Providence said it’s unlikely there will be an Ebola epidemic here in the United States, but it is still taking the matter very seriously and making the safety of patients and caregivers its first priority.
           “With the heightened need for screening for the Ebola virus and other seasonal infections diseases, PKIMC has launched an immediate response that ensures we are vigilant in our identification of patients at risk, ready to serve those who need our care, and support our caregivers ability to provide care safely and with confidence.”   
           Austerman went on to read that PKIMC is more concerned about other health risks Alaskans face annually.
           “We would also like to remind the community that although Ebola may threaten the lives of the people of Kodiak, influenza DOES threaten the lives of the people of Kodiak every year, so please make sure you and your families receive your flue shots.”
            She added that one of the discussion points during the advisory board’s meeting last week was the fact that the number of people who die from the flu each year is much higher than how many have died so far from Ebola. Austerman said it was something to think about as media coverage on the outbreak continues.

          On Thursday, three new faces joined the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. One of them, Rebecca Skinner, was out of town following the election, but KMXT was able to catch up with her before taking her oath of office and get her thoughts on joining the governing body.
           “I am happy and excited. I think that it’s going to be a tremendous learning experience for me. But then I also think that I have a lot to bring to the table. So I think it will hopefully be a good process for everyone.”   
            Skinner said one of the main things she’d like to focus on as an assembly member is a better coordinated capital planning process for the Kodiak region.

          This weekend marks the 25th annual Coast Guard Appreciation dinner, hosted by the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce. On Saturday, folks will fill the Harbor Convention Center to honor and show their appreciation for the men and women who serve the community through the U.S. Coast Guard.
           Summer Wood is the community relations director for the Chamber and said the event typically brings in a good crowd and local chefs provide food for attendees.
          “During the dinner we will hear from Senator Gary Stevens, Mayor Pat Branson, Mayor Jerrol Friend. We’ll also be hearing from John Whiddon – he’s also going to be speaking about the Coast Guard Foundation and what the Coast Guard Foundation does for the Coast Guard. And we’ll also be hearing a testimony from someone who was medevac’d here in September, she wants to show her appreciation for the Coast Guard.”   
            Wood said various captains and commanders from the Coast Guard will also speak throughout the evening.
             Tickets are still on sale for $50, which covers the cost of one civilian and one enlisted member. Wood said the goal is that no one from the Coast Guard will have to pay for their dinner that evening. Likewise, raffle tickets will be given to enlisted members for door prizes, which have donated by local businesses and organizations.

Salmon Project Will 'Drop' Books This Fall

          Folks who enjoy salmon-themed literature will be pleased to know they’ll have an opportunity to score a free book this fall. Erin Harrington is the executive director of the Salmon Project, which is the organization hosting a statewide book drop. The “drop” she says, will involve distributing almost 1,200 books to roughly half a dozen communities around the state.
           The book being distributed is King of Fish – the 1,000 year run of salmon.
            “Which is by David Montgomery, who is a geomorphologist down at the University of Washington, and wrote this book a little over a decade ago about salmon and the interactions between salmon and people across ranges in Europe, North America, on both the east and west coasts of the United States and Canada and then up around the corner, just barely touching on B.C. and Alaska. So it’s a really fascinating book that looks at more than 1,000 years of the way people have interacted with this fish and relied on it. And then it looks at some of the lessons that can come out of those other geographies which have largely lost their salmon.”   
              Harrington said the book drop idea was modeled after the popular Big Reads, which promote community literacy and conversation by distributing different texts for free.
