           The Alaska Ferry Tustumena lived up to its nickname Trusty Tusty on Monday. While traveling from Sand Point to Old Harbor, the ferry helped tow a fishing vessel to safety.
           Coast Guard Petty Officer Kelly Parker said the F/V Pacific Storm contacted the Coast Guard just after 7 a.m. reporting a broken transmission. The boat was anchored near Tugidak Island, and the Coast Guard issued a marine assist broadcast.
          Alaska Marine Highway System Spokesman Jeremy Woodrow said the Tustumena was returning from its Aleutian Chain route when it picked up the broadcast and aided the vessel just before noon. 
          “The area that the Pacific Storm happened to be anchored was actually on the same tracking line that the Tustumena usually sails and so the vessel kept its course and was able to provide assistance and tow the vessel into a safer area, into Alitak Bay.”

           Almost three years ago, Karen Weinberg came to Kodiak for the first time to teach a film editing course at the college. Little did she know, that visit would be the first of many, and the beginning of a documentary film project she never imagined producing.
          Weinberg is the creative director of Ten Trees Productions, a Chicago-based film company and the producer and director of  Keep Talking – a documentary film still under production that explores Alutiiq language revitalization in Kodiak.
          The idea for the film came from Weinberg’s first trip to Kodiak, when she realized why students were learning to work with film.
          “My entire class was learning the software to further preserve and grow their movement to save their language and culture. And that’s not your typical class. I’m used to classes of aspiring film makers so I was blown away by how important the objective was in  my class. They had been doing interviews with elders they had been doing all sorts of things for many years it turns out and I didn’t know anything about language preservation really.”

Decorum Ordinance

    The highly controversial decorum ordinance the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly passed last month will be coming back for reconsideration.
    The request is being made by Assemblywoman Carol Austerman, who originally introduced the ordinance.
    “We understand that people are concerned about the free speech. But the ordinance is really being interpreted in a way that we didn’t intend. I hope to be able to address those concerns through more conversation.”
    There was an outpouring of anger from borough residents, and at least two threats of violence made against assembly members. A citizen-led effort to put an initiative on October’s ballot repealing the ordinance failed. The ordinance was derided as a way for the assembly to stifle open conversation at meetings, but Austerman says that was unintended.
    “I’m really concerned about the amount of feedback that we’ve received over the last couple of weeks about the decorum ordinance. Our original intent of that ordinance was to protect the dignity of our borough employees. We’ve had some attacks to the staff that we were uncomfortable at public meetings. And so it was not to discourage input or public comment in any way. That wasn’t the intent of it.”
    Austerman said she and Assemblyman Tuck Bonney will ask at Thursday’s assembly work session that the decorum ordinance be put on the agenda of next week’s assembly meeting for reconsideration. She added that public input on how to accomplish the dual goals of protecting borough employees from verbal attacks while not stifling public comment will be welcome.

           Last week Alaska Senator Mark Begich was in Kodiak on a campaign swing. Begich is running for re-election this fall and opened a campaign office on the island. While in town he took the time to stop by KMXT and talk about a few issues pertinent to the Kodiak community. This week we’ll bring you excerpts from that conversation, starting with drugs and drug abuse.
           Begich said Kodiak’s drug problem is one that’s all too familiar around the state. One thing being done in Southeast Alaska is collaboration between local law enforcement and the United States Postal Service.
            “Because that’s were some of these drugs will come through. And there’s not enough inspection capacity. And we think that working with the local communities and the local police officers allow them capacity to inspect postal packages – not just waiting for the post office to do, because they can only do a certain percentage, will have an impact.”
