           Members of Kodiak’s local handbell choir are putting Kodiak and Alaska on the map these days. Two members of the Isle Bells recently returned from ringing in a regional all star choir in Oregon.
           Ella Saltonstall is the artistic director for the Isle Bells and attended a national handbell seminar with the group’s treasurer, Theresa Miller, last year. From there, the two auditioned for and were selected to perform with the regional group.
            “So to have two Alaskans be part of this regional all star choir was exciting because it put Alaska on the map. There was only 13 of us and we were a significant chunk of that group.”  
             Saltonstall said she and Miller only had eight hours to practice with the regional group and the experience was overwhelming and intense, but also rewarding.
             “It definitely, like I said, taking us out of our comfort zones. I for instance play some of the bigger bells, I love the base bells. And I learned some things about what those bells are capable of that I probably wouldn’t have experienced for quite a bit longer. So that was valuable. So now I have new things that I can do with our own base bells.”

Al Asuncion/KMXT

           Hello! I’m Al Asuncion, an intern at KMXT as part of the station’s summer archiving project. Over the past few weeks of my internship, I have been listening to myriad stories from Alaska Fisheries Report, and one of the topics that quite fascinated me was the story of an important tool to Alaska fisheries that aired on October of 1993.
            “What’s low tech, low key, low in the water, and one of the most important tools in salmon fisheries management? It’s a weir! ”
             Welch explains why weirs are so useful and vital to Alaska fisheries.
             “The wooden structures have provided the most reliable data on how many fish are making it upstream to spawn. Weir counts help managers determine when fisheries can occur and provide clues to the strength of future salmon run.”
              Larry Nicholson, fish and Game Westward Regional Supervisor, called weirs critical. 
              “It is the only tool we really have to get access to assessment data. Because of that we have, all of our major systems around the island. There are weirs, not only in Kodiak Island, but throughout the westward region. We have experimented and we do have some systems. We tried sonar and it works through varying degrees, but it certainly not a replacement for a weir.”

           Movement is underway to repeal an ordinance passed by the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly earlier this month.
           On July 3rd the assembly passed the ordinance with the intent of providing guidelines for appropriate behavior during assembly meetings. Among other things, the ordinance states that community members cannot attack or question the motives of another person. In the weeks following the ordinance’s passage, dozens of community members have expressed concerns about the ordinance and what they feel is an over step in terms of free speech.
             Betty MacTavish spoke during the assembly’s regular meeting on Thursday and said she and other concerned community members are waiting for petition sheets from the borough clerk’s office so they can collect signatures to place a repeal on the borough’s October election ballot. She said that isn’t ideal, and would rather the assembly take action.
              “It’s my understanding that the borough assembly could vote to repeal this ordinance yourself, avoiding the community vote, so as the assembly wishes.”

Horizon Crewman Plucked from Ship 160 Miles Offshore
Monday, 21 July 2014

    An Air Station Kodiak helicopter crew was dispatched Saturday morning to medevac an injured crewman from a Horizon Lines cargo ship in the Gulf of Alaska. According to the Coast Guard, the 39-year-old man - who they did not identify - suffered from a chemical exposure and needed urgent medical attention.
    The cargo vessel “Horizon Kodiak” was about 200 miles from its namesake island when the call for help was made. By the time the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter arrived, the Horizon Kodiak had changed course and they rendezvoused about 160 miles offshore.
    The Coast Guard also deployed an HC-130 Hercules aircraft as a precaution for the long-distance medevac. The helicopter crew transferred the injured man to Kodiak where emergency medical personal were waiting. His condition was not reported, but in video from the helicopter, the man was on his feet when meeting the hoist basket on the stern of the Horizon Kodiak.
    Weather on scene was reported as 23 mph winds and six-foot seas.

    Kodiak runner Trevor Dunbar just completed his first professional running tour of Europe with largely positive results. In his first two races he set personal bests, but finished with a disappointing performance in his third race, despite winning it.
    Dunbar ran his second sub-four-minute mile in Dublin, finishing in 3-minutes 57-seconds. He then completed the 3,000-meters in Cork in 7-minutes 45-seconds.
    On Saturday in Belgium, Dunbar won the B-, or second-tier 5,000 meter race in 13-minutes 39-seconds, which is 13-seconds slower than his P-R he set last month at the NCAA track and field championships. By comparison, the winner of the A-tier race won in 13-minutes 6-seconds.
    Now a pro, Dunbar recently inked a deal to be represented by Flynn Sports Management, which negotiated a sponsorship deal with Nike. Dunbar will remain in Eugene, Oregon, to train with the university’s distance coach.
