Subsistence Board Revamping Rural Determination Process
Monday, 09 February 2015
Jay Barrett/KMXT
    The way the Federal Subsistence Board has determined if an area of Alaska was rural, and therefore its residents eligible to subsistence hunt and fish on federal land and waters has remained largely unchanged. Until now. 
    Previously, areas had to meet all manner of criteria to be declared rural. The new method will flip that on its head, according to Deborah Coble, outreach coordinator with the Office of Subsistence Management in Anchorage.
    "It's going from an entire page in a regulation book with all sorts of guidelines to basically two sentences,” she said. “And those two sentences in the regulations would state, 'the board determines which areas or communities in Alaska are non-rural. Current determinations are listed as.' And it would give a specific location and then all other communities and areas therefore are rural."
    A series of meetings around the state kicks off tomorrow here in Kodiak. Coble says they are basically wondering what residents think of the new determination process and why they feel that way.
    Coble says the impetus for the change came from public input.
    "The Federal Subsistence Board received 475 substantive comments from various sources, including individuals, members of the regional advisory councils, of which there are 10 councils, and other entities and organizations such as borough and village governments,” she said. “(They) wanted us to look at, actually, wanted the secretaries of interior and agriculture to look at the rural determination process."
    The Federal Subsistence Board meeting in Kodiak will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Best Western Kodiak Inn. It will be preceded by a Kodiak and Aleutian Islands regional advisory council meeting. Both meetings are open to the public, and the latter one can be joined via teleconference.
    If you'd like to call into the meeting, the toll-free number is 1-866-560-5984, and the passcode is: 12960066.

    At 132 pounds, senior Levi Fried was trailing by only one point in the third period before South's Gavin Alvarado pinned him with a minute-32 left.
    And at 220 pounds, Kodiak senior Nolan Wandersee lost to Palmer's Ben Button 9-to-2.
    As a team, the Bears were fourth with 115 points. Colony won the team title with 264 points, followed by South with 255.5 and Wasilla with 227. Lathrop rounded out the top five.

    Searchers Friday afternoon found the body of a Kodiak man missing since Tuesday night. Thirty-seven year old Kevin Rogers was found dead in the Cliff Point area, near where his car was spotted Thursday.
    Searchers from Kodiak Island Search and Rescue, the Coast Guard and Troopers did not find Rogers before calling off the search because of darkness Thursday evening, but found his body early Friday afternoon.
    Troopers say no foul play is suspected at this time, but Rogers' body is being sent to the State Medical Examiner's Office. Next of kin have been notified, and and the investigation into his death continue.

KPD Seek White Ford F150 Involved in Hit-and-Run
Friday, 06 February 2015
Jay Barrett/KMXT
    The Kodiak Police Department has a lead on the vehicle involved in a hit and run outside the high school Wednesday night. Police Chief Rhonda Wallace said the suspect vehicle has been narrowed down to a Ford F-150 pick up, made between 1997 and 2003, and according to eyewitness reports, is white.
    The accident injured Brent Watkins, who had to be medevac'd to Anchorage with injuries to his pelvis, ribs and head. A family friend says he is alert and resting at an Anchorage hospital.
    KPD officers closed off Rezanof Thursday morning to search for more evidence in the light of day and found enough pieces of the vehicle to identify it as an F150 of that vintage. Wallace says the passenger side headlight is broken and there could be other damage to the front end. If anyone has seen the vehicle in question, they are urged to call the KPD at 486-8000 or crime stoppers at 486- 3113.
