           As the Kodiak Borough Assembly looks toward finalizing the borough’s FY 2015 budget, it’s deciding how to allocate nonprofit funding. During Thursday’s work session the assembly reviewed a recommendation from the nonprofit funding committee – a recommendation that didn’t include a number of funding requests from local organizations.
          Assemblywoman Carol Austerman said the budget for nonprofit support in 2015 was set at $351,000, but the borough received 25 applications from local nonprofits totaling more than $476,000. 
           “And of course we didn’t anywhere near that much money to allocate. So the first thing we did was review all the applications for complete and full information and you can see the list in the memo of the organizations that we disregarded because they did not provide complete information. We felt like we could not in good faith give those organizations funding and take funding away from other organizations that did provide the exact information that was requested.” 
            The organizations that were disregarded from borough funding due to incomplete applications include The Humane Society of Kodiak, American Red Cross, Kodiak Head Start, Salvation Army of Kodiak, Threshold Services and Kodiak Maritime Museum. Special Olympics and Girl Scouts also missed out on funding because their applications were turned in late. All total, those disregarded applications equaled just over $61,000.

           Every couple of years the new president of the Alaska Bar Association swings through Kodiak to meet with the attorneys in town and to hear about their concerns. Current Bar President Geoffry Wildridge of Fairbanks visited Kodiak recently, but it wasn’t his first time here. Wildridge worked for Alaska Legal Services here in the late 70s and early 80s.
           “Matt Jamin was my supervising attorney at that point ... It’s just great to be back here. I haven’t been back here in all these years. I’m just kinda dumb-struck; it’s just wonderful to be here.”
            On his visit over Crab Fest, Wildridge said he got a chance to meet with most of Kodiak’s attorneys.

           Last week Governor Sean Parnell signed budget bills totaling $12.8 billion for next year. That compares to roughly $13.2 billion for the current year. Within those bills was the capital budget, which included more than $36 million for the Kodiak Island Borough to put toward various capital improvement projects around the archipelago.
           Topping the list was $15 million that will go toward the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill trustee council land acquisition on Afognak Island. More than $10 million will go to improving the Kodiak airport and just over $3 million will help the Aleutian Homes water and sewer replacement project.
            Also making the list this year was almost $2.5 million for deferred maintenance on the Kodiak Launch Complex and roughly the same amount for the Monashka pumphouse replacement project. Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association will receive just over $1 million for Pillar Creek Hatchery upgrades.
            Ouzinkie will get $300,000 for emergency repairs to the Mahoona Dam and $54,000 will go toward the small boat harbor breakwater stub design in Port Lions.
            All total 16 Kodiak projects were funded through the state’s capital budget.
            Parnell issued no vetoes on the budget.

Assembly Hears From Forestry Expert

           More than two dozen people packed the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly chambers for the assembly’s work session last night. The main draw was arguably a presentation by Robert Deal, a research forester and ecosystem services team leader for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service.
            The assembly asked for Deal to present his thoughts on potential forest management, or logging, of Kodiak’s Sitka spruce stands. The prospect of logging the borough’s 800 acres of forested land in Chiniak was brought up by A-1 Timber, who approached the assembly about the matter this past fall. A-1 Timber is the company currently logging Leisnoi’s privately-owned land in Chiniak.
             Deal emphasized that much of his experience and expertise is specific to Southeast Alaska, but said the borough needs to ultimately consider its objectives and priorities when it comes to potential logging.
             “If your, really your focus is try and maximize economic return, then probably even-aged management using some sort of clear cutting type is probably what you want to do. Or if you want to just preserve the forest and leave it as is, that is another option as well. But what I’m suggesting is there are some things in between those two.” 
              Those include selection cutting or cutting in gaps and clumps, among other things.  
              “The one thing I’d say is looking at these forests here, they’re beautiful forests but they’re fairly uniform. In other words if you want to maintain some structural diversity and get more plant diversity and abundance then some light management would make sense.”
               Deal had the opportunity fly over current logging operations in Chiniak, as well as forests that remain in that area, and even flew over logging operations on Afognak Island. In addition to that, he took ground tours of specific areas in the Chiniak area. He said a couple things stood out to him, like the fact that the trees here were bigger than expected and there weren’t very many new trees coming in.

           Kodiak High School’s track and field team wrapped up its regular season last weekend at the state meet in Anchorage. While Alaska School Activities Association competition is done, more than a dozen of Kodiak’s athletes, in addition to 100 more competitors from around the state, will take part in a post-season track meet here in Kodiak this weekend.
           The Brian Young Invitational is the only event of its kind in Alaska. For the past two years, the state’s top athletes have invaded the island the week after state and tried to beat their personal records. Last year’s meet was one of the fastest in the state, generating 63 personal bests, 13 school records, 11 all time top-ten marks and one Alaskan all time state best. 
            Kodiaks head coach, Marcus Dunbar, said Alaska has a really short track season and typically it ends right as the weather is getting nice and the athletes are starting to perform their best. The Brian Young Invitational is an opportunity to extend the season, but also pin some of the best small school athletes against some of the big school stars.
