State House Voices Opposition to Aleutian Sanctuary
Thursday, 05 March 2015

    On Wednesday, Alaska’s House of Representatives voted to oppose the creation of an Aleutian Islands National Maritime Sanctuary. 
    House Joint Resolution 7, sponsored by Representative Bryce Edgmon, lays out reasons why the massive sanctuary proposal is not a good idea, including that no local governing bodies from Bristol Bay out through the Aleutian Chain have offered any support for it.
    A group called PEER, for Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, nominated approximately 554-thousand square nautical miles of waters north and south of the Alaska Peninsula and the Aleutian Chain to be a new marine sanctuary.
    The resolution, adopted unanimously in the House, says the Legislature is “vehemently” opposed to this idea. HJR 7 now goes to the Senate for consideration.

Seafood Preservation Under Pressure

    University of Alaska Cooperative Extension Service agent Linda Tannehill, visiting Kodiak from Soldotna, taught a class Tuesday night to volunteers who later this week will help local canners get ready to put up this summer's bounty.
    On pressure cookers used in canning, Tannehill says the dial gauge is an important tool when processing certain foods, and that was the focus of last night's class.
    “It creates the temperature inside to 240 to 250 degrees so that it will kill the Clostridium botulinum spores in low acid food like meat fish and vegetables,” Tannehill said. “And that’s what those spores can cause. Botulism.”
    The volunteers are now prepared to assist the public with calibrating the gauges on pressure cookers. You can bring them to the Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center Thursday night from 6 to 7 p.m.

    Though Troopers are still awaiting autopsy results from the state medical examiner, their investigation revealed nothing suspicious aboard a Kodiak fishing vessel where a crewman was found dead Saturday morning.
    A little after 11 a.m. On Saturday, Troopers were notified by the skipper of the fishing vessel Alaskan Dream that 29-year-old Sean O'Callahan was found dead in his bunk.
    The Alaskan Dream was headed to fishing grounds near the south end of Kodiak Island, but turned around to meet Troopers back in Kodiak and turn over O'Callahan's body. It was then sent to Anchorage for an autopsy. 
    The Troopers conducted an investigation on board the Alaskan Dream and in their report say nothing suspicious was observed. It appears O'Callahan passed away in his sleep sometimes during the night.
    O'Callahan's mother posted to her son's Facebook page that she would be scattering some of his ashes in Kodiak waters and more in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, with dates to be announced.
