    A fun-run with a twist is returning to Kodiak this year: the second annual Milk Run, where after the race, participants will be served milk and cookies. The run is helping to support Kodiak Kindness, a local non-profit program that provides mothers with individualized information and support for breastfeeding and infant feeding by phone call and home visits.
    The Milk Run was founded last fall by Brooke McLaughlin, a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor at A Balanced Approach. She explained she got the idea from a similar event in Anchorage, and decided to do the same in Kodiak, because of her personal experience with Kodiak Kindness.
    “We began this event after I was inspired by Owen’s Milk Run, which is an Anchorage based race, supporting breastfeeding moms out of Anchorage.  And being in the position of having my own child, and utilizing the Kodiak Kindness program, I just wanted to find a way to give back.”
    McLaughlin said last year’s race was a success, with about 60 families and the Kodiak High School Cross Country Team showing up to support Kindness.
     The Milk Run is Saturday, at the North End Trail on Near Island. Participants can go any distance they choose up to a 5k, and there is also a shorter race specifically for younger children. The race is $10 per person, $20 for a family or by donation. Registration begins at 10:30 and the race starts at 11.

    Last week all three major candidates for Alaska governor were in Kodiak for the fisheries debate, and they each dropped by KMXT for a chat.
    The gubernatorial landscape changed over the long Labor Day weekend, with Democrat Byron Mallott joining independent Bill Walker on an “Alaska First Unity Party” ticket. And though there are now two candidates for Alaska governor, we will still bring you chats with all three.
    Today, we’ll hear from Bill Walker, who spoke with KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs.
    Tomorrow we’ll hear from Byron Mallott, who also stopped by KMXT last week. At the time, he was the Democratic nominee for governor, but he is now a candidate for lieutenant governor on the same ticket with Walker. Friday, we’ll hear a conversation with incumbent Republican Sean Parnell about how his campaign is going.

Walker and Mallott Join Forces Against Parnell

    Alaska’s three-way race for governor is now a two-ticket contest after Democratic candidate Byron Mallott and Independent Bill Walker declared they’ll run together.
    Today [Tuesday] is the last day for changes to the November ballot, and that deadline kept the Mallott and Walker campaigns negotiating until late last night — before announcing the two men will run together—Walker as the gubernatorial candidate and Mallott as the lieutenant gubernatorial candidate on  the “Alaska First Unity Party” ticket. Walker says the decision of who should ultimately be the man to run for governor under the “unity” ticket was simply driven by data.
    “We’ve seen a number of polls over the last few months, and so we’ve seen how things are coming out, and in a head-to-head poll, we just took right after the primary, had me about 4 or 5 points ahead of Governor Parnell,” he said. “So, the numbers really drove that decision.”
    It was a decision endorsed by the Democratic Party’s central committee on a vote of 89 to 2 Monday night for the switch to an independent ticket. Democratic Party spokesman Zack Fields says Democrats believe the state is in trouble under Sean Parnell’s leadership and Walker and Mallott share similar beliefs about how to address the state’s problems.

28-Year-Old Abercrombie XC Record Left in the Dust
Tuesday, 02 September 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    One of the longest-standing sports records in the state was wiped from the record books on Friday. The girls’ cross country mark of 18-minutes 48-seconds, set by Kristi Klinnert, now Waythomas, in 1986, fell during the Kodiak Invitational at Fort Abercrombie. Two-time defending state champion Allie Ostrander of Kenai Central High School bested the record with a time of 17-minutes 34-seconds – a full minute-14 faster than Waythomas.
    Needless to say, Ostrander, a Kardinal senior, won the race handily, crossing the finish line more than two-and-a-half minutes ahead of the second-place runner. And though it’s comparing apples to oranges, Ostrander’s time was faster than all the competitors in the boys’ race, save the top nine.
    Speaking of the boys, Kodiak’s Levi Thomet had a likewise easy win, finishing nearly a minute ahead of second place. Thomet was just three-seconds short of Trevor Dunbar’s course record.
    West Anchorage won the girls’ team title and Kodiak the boys, both with scores of 35. The Kodiak girls were 4th with 87 points.
    We’ve got full results after the jump.

    It was another dominating weekend for the Kodiak High School swimming and diving team at home, with both the girls and boys swamping the Soldotna Stars.
    Led by Tahna Lindquist with eight first-places between relay and individual races, the Kodiak girls won by a score Friday of 164 to SoHi’s 116, and on Saturday 157 to 128. Kodiak swimmers Ila Hughes and Marina Cummiskey each had six individual and relay wins.
    The KODIAK boys won 191-111 on Friday and 185-112 on Saturday. They were led by Talon Lindquist, who, like his sister, had eight first-place finishes.
    We’ve got the weekend’s full results after the jump.
    
    Meanwhile in football, the Kodiak High School Bears only managed a single touchdown on the road against the Kenai Kardinals, and were routed 56-to-8. Isagani Galindez drove the ball in from the two-yard line in the first period for the Bear’s lone touchdown. He followed that up with a running point after, giving Kodiak an 8-7 lead. The rest was all Kenai, with two TDs in the first AND second periods, three in the third and just one in the fourth. The Bears fall to 1-and-2 on the season, and 1-and-1 in the Northern Lights Conference.
