Clean Up Underway in Rocket Explosion Aftermath
Wednesday, 27 August 2014

    A military safety team is cleaning up any unexploded rocket fuel and other potentially dangerous debris at the Kodiak Launch Complex following the explosion Monday of a rocket carrying an experimental Army hypersonic glider.
    Officials are waiting for the military team from Anchorage to do the cleanup before damage to the launch complex is fully assessed. The air space above the Kodiak Launch Complex has been closed below 2,000 feet.
    The rocket carrying the Army's Advanced Hypersonic Weapon blew up four seconds after it lifted off, according to Department of Defense spokeswoman Maureen Schumann. She says a so-far unidentified anomaly was detected and the rocket self-destructed for safety reasons. Eyewitnesses told KMXT that almost immediately after lift-off the rocket tipped over and started to loop before it blew up. The flash from the explosion and ensuing fire could be seen from 25 miles away.
    Debris and the shockwave from the massive explosion damaged several buildings on the rocket range. Alaska Aerospace Corp. President Craig Campbell says sheet metal siding, roofs and doors were bent and broken. Windows were reportedly blown out miles away. No injuries were reported.

           As one of the largest fishing ports in the nation, it only makes sense that Kodiak would host a gubernatorial debate focused solely on the seafood industry. This week the three lead candidates for governor, Incumbent Sean Parnell, Independent Bill Walker and Democrat Byron Mallot will descend on Kodiak and talk about seafood during a debate hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and KMXT.    
            Long time Fish Radio Host Laine Welch helped organize the debate, and spoke with KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs about what to expect.

           It’s been almost a year since the topic of composting biosolids has made it to a Kodiak City Council agenda, but work has been well underway to make it a reality. The design for the new composting facility is at 95 percent, and City Manager Aimee Kniaziowksi said they are getting ready to submit the design to the the Alaska Department of Enviornmental Conservation for permitting.
            “That’s the next step and once we’re issued a permit then we can begin the process of building this facility and migrating over. We’re currently doing compost class B on the borough landfill at the top of the current landfill pile, so we’ll migrate that to the new facility once it’s been designed and ready.”   
             The goal is to eventually produce a higher quality class A compost at the new facility.
              Mark Kozak is the public works director for the city and said a meeting was held with folks from the Monashka Bay community about a year ago to talk about preliminary plans for the composting facility.
              “Because they’re the nearest neighbor to this potential site. We took their public input and then we started the design. And now we’re at the point where the design is ready to be submitted to DEC to start the permit process. And what we want to do is visit with the public again, let them see the design and ask their questions, so that they know when we submit our permit, what the facility is like, how the process is managed and handled and then we can hear and get feedback from them now if there’s anything they have concerns about.”

            On today's edition of Talk of the Rock we'll hear an interview with Kodiak City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski, Public Works Director Mark Kozak and City Engineer Glenn Melvin about the proposed composting facility at the landfill. The class A composting facility is 95 percent designed and city staff are seeking public input before they submit the plans to the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. 

            There will be a public meeting about composting and plans for the new facility on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Bayside Fire Hall. The gathering will include a panel question and answer session with three composting experts from CH2M Hill, the company designing the composting facility, and a representative from the DEC.
            Kniaziowski said city staff will present the current design for the project, including maps and pictures, and detail how it will operate and the ultimate goal for class A composting in Kodiak.

Fisherman Injured in Winch Incident

    Kodiak Fire Department rescue personnel were called to Pier 2 Monday afternoon in response to an injury to a fisherman aboard the FV Provider. Fire Chief Rome Kamai said the man’s leg was caught in a winch and his foot was crushed.
    He said an ambulance crew responded just before 4 p.m., but soon found they needed more equipment to retrieve the injured person.
    “It was determined that the person with the injury was not able to walk or climb the ladder, and so we had to bring in some other equipment; our lader truck and our rescue truck that we use for these kinds of situations," Kamai said. "We have ropes and systems that we can use to put the patient, or person, into what we call a Stokes basket. And then we raised them up and off the vessel with our ladder truck and rope.”
    Kamai said it took about 25 minutes to get the unidentified fisherman from the boat into the ambulance, which he described as a pretty quick recovery. The injured man was then transported to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center for treatment. His current condition is unknown.
