A red king crab caught in Russian waters was discovered  to be not so red.

 

Coming up this week: Walmart commits to Alaska salmon, Is trophy sportfishing responsible for the decline in abundance and size of Kenai River King Salm?, and don’t let Facebook scare your friends away from Alaska seafood. All that, and the coolest red king crab you'll ever see. We had help this week from KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham.

Austin Roof/KSDP
    On January 15, 2014, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service held an open house in Sand Point as part of a public scoping process to address “unauthorized” wild cattle herds on two refuge islands.
    Speaking with KSDP before the meeting, Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge Manager Steve Delehanty said they are visiting Sand Point.
    Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Steve Ebbert said public concerns he has heard are about the impact of wild cattle on the islands’ environment, salmon streams and even archaeological sites.
    Wosnesenski Island is about 35 air miles from Sand Point and has a long history with local residents. David Osterback, owner of the Wosnesenski herd & President of the Qagan Tayagungin Tribe, talked about his family settling on the island in the late 1800's and his grandfather bringing the cattle there in the 1930's.
    This is not the first time the Fish & Wildlife Service has dealt with wild cattle in the East Aleutians. In 1985 the Fish & Wildlife Service removed all cattle from Simeonof, Chernabura & Caton islands. Mr. Ebbert recounted the end of the herd on Simeonof.
    Residents at the open house expressed their desire to see the herds continue to be locally managed. The ten cattle moved from Simeonof to Unga Island are now about 100 head and managed by the Unga Corporation. The bison herd of about 120 head on Popof Island are managed by the Shumagin Corporation.
    QTT Executive Director Tiffany Jackson cited these examples.
    This scoping process is the start of a journey to develop either environmental assessments or environmental impact statements that will guide the refuge in resolving the cattle issue.
    The Fish & Wildlife Service held open houses in Homer and Kodiak as well.  Public comments on the scoping may be submitted to the Fish & Wildlife Service until January 31st, 2014.

           Following that joint gathering, assembly members will stick around the chambers for a work session of their own.  On that agenda is handful of strategic planning discussions, including community health goals, fire protection and solid waste collection and disposal.

Warm Weather Restricts Roads in Kodiak

          This month's unusually warm weather is starting to affect local roads these days. This week the Alaska Department of Transportation implemented emergency weight restrictions on the Chiniak Highway and a portion of Rezanof Drive because unseasonal freezing and thawing is making the ground slightly unstable beneath roadways.
          Jill Reese is the media liaison for the DOT’s central region and said the weight restrictions are 75 percent of the legal axle loads.  
           “Unfortunately until further notice.”
           Reese said the weight limits won’t affect the average driver, and are intended more for commercial vehicles. 
           “It’s not the normal car, that’s no problem. This is commercial vehicles who register through our own weights and measures department here. So it’s commercial trucks who carry real heavy loads.”
           A-1 Timber uses the Chiniak Highway multiple times daily to carry logging loads to from Chiniak to Womans Bay, but a spokesperson for A-1 declined to comment on how the weight restrictions might be affecting the company’s daily operations.
           Reese said the freeze and thaw going on in Kodiak also might be affecting the general condition of some roads, which she said the department recognizes are already in poor shape.    
           “There is going to be some road work being done in the spring on several of the roads in Kodiak, so we realize that there are many roads that need repair, need upgrading, and the warm weather is just not doing them any favors.”
            The weight restrictions are in place for the entire length of the Chiniak Highway and Rezanof Drive from the end at milepost 13.75 to the Coast Guard Base, milepost 10.1.

Committee Begins Hearings on Reading Bill
Wednesday, 29 January 2014

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The Senate Education Committee plans to hear a bill that would require school districts to have a strategy in place for addressing reading deficiencies in students in kindergarten through third grade.
    Districts under the bill authored by Sen. Gary Stevens are also to provide reachable goals for students so they can reach grade level expectations.
    “What we really find out is if our children, if they can read at a third-grade level, then the world is open to them,” he told KMXT radio. “They can go on and improve their reading skills and be good contributing members of our society and well-educated folks.”
    SB107 also lays out a system for parental involvement in deciding whether a student in kindergarten through third grade, who has significant reading deficiencies, should move on to the next grade.
