No Fireworks Until June
Thursday, 02 January 2014

            Even though New Year's Eve conditions were less than ideal for fireworks, there won’t be a rain check for usage any time soon. Fireworks were only legal in the Kodiak Island Borough until January 1, meaning any pyrotechnics leftover today will have to be saved until this summer.
            Borough code bans the use of fireworks without a permit most of the year, but allows them between December 26 and January 1, as well as June 15 through July 15. Those dates only allow usage outside of city limits. Fireworks are banned year round within city limits.

    Coming up this week, a familiar face takes on the science advising for a group of Aleutian crabbers, and a look at one of the last salmon cultures on earth.
    And that’s another year in the tote for the Alaska Fisheries Report. As usual, it couldn’t be done without help from the dozens of fishy contributors near and far. So, in alphabetical order by first name, thank you to: Aaron Selbig, Alexandra Gutierrez, Angela Denning-Barnes, Annie Ropeik, Ariel Van Cleave, Ashley Ahern, Ben Matheson, Brian Lynch, Brianna Gibbs, Casey Kelly, Dan Bross, Dave Bendinger, Ed Ronco, Ed Schoenfeld, Ellen Lockyer, Heather Hardcastle, Joaqlin Estus, Joe Viechnicki, John Sackton, Kyle Clayton, Laine Welch, Lauren Rosenthal, Leila Kheiry, Lisa Phu, Maggie Wall, Margaret Friedenauer, Matt Miller, Mike Mason, Peter Granitz, Phillip Manning, Robert Woolsey, Rosemarie Alexander, Sean Carlson, Shady Grove Oliver, Shaylon Cochran, Sophie Evan, Stephanie Joyce, Tara Bicknell, Tom Banse, Tony Gorman, and Wesley Loy.
    We have a special shout-out and thank-you to Matt Lichtenstein of KFSK Radio in Petersburg. He has been a reliable and prolific reporter whose work has brought the stories of Southeast fishermen to life. His work will be sorely missed, and not just by the folks in Petersburg. After nearly two decades, Matt is leaving KFSK next week to become a full-time fisherman. So long Matt, and thanks for all the fish.

            With the holidays coming and going, folks out of town and the New Year right around the corner the borough and city haven’t been following their normal meeting schedules lately. Last week the borough had to cancel it’s regularly scheduled meeting because of lack of a quorum and tonight’s work session is also cancelled. The borough will meet next Thursday with a rather dense agenda as it tries to catch up on meetings from December.
            On the city side of things the council will meet for a work session on January 14 and then hold its first regular meeting of the New Year on January 16. Those will be the only city council gatherings that month, and the council members will meet again in February.

           With the new year fast approaching, various community groups are already gearing up for a commemoration five decades in the making. March 2014 will mark the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Good Friday earthquake and tsunami. Kodiak was one of many coastal communities in Alaska greatly affected that day, and will be hosting a slew of events surrounding the March 27 anniversary.
           While that date is still months away, the Baranov Museum is kicking things off already with a poster contest. Sarah Short is the curator of education at the museum and said the idea is to incorporate local artwork into a poster that will highlight different activities around the anniversary.
           “So we wanted to open up a poster contest to all different age groups. And in order to encourage everyone to apply we wanted to have a range of different prizes for them. So we have an adult, teens and tweens, and kids categories. Not with any strict age requirements, anyone is welcome to submit into any age category they feel is appropriate.”
           Short said prizes will be given to winners in each category. She said winners will receive a prize package that will be made up of materials from participating organizations.

            Even though it’s a festive time of year, Alaska State Troopers are reminding folks to not let holiday festivities impair their judgment on the road. A press release from the State Troopers office said officers will be ramping up their efforts in the next two weeks as part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” national driving under the influence enforcement campaign.
           The release said troopers will be looking for impaired drivers, speeding and reckless driving over the holidays. Folks can help keep themselves and others safe by reporting dangerous driving to 9-1-1 and choosing not to drive if they have been drinking. Funding for increased enforcement efforts is through various grants from the Alaska Highway Safety Office.
