    Alaska Public Media and Alaska Dispatch News are suing Governor Sean Parnell over access to documents related to the National Guard Scandal. APRN's Alexandra Gutierrez submitted her request in May. Both organizations were denied the records by Parnell's office in late September.
    The complaint says that Parnell's office is not complying with the Public Records Act. The office also failed to provide a log of records related to the scandal and the reasons why they weren't provided.
    Attorney John McKay filed the suit on Wednesday on behalf of both organizations. He says they're asking the court to expedite the process because it's important for voters to have access to the facts about Parnell's actions before the gubernatorial election next month.
    "They've offered explanations for what he did or didn't do,” McKay said. “Voters may find that reasonable or they may not. But we need to have facts so people can decide if he acted appropriately or is being criticized unfairly."
    It's up to the court to decide when to respond to the complaint.
    A federal government investigation of the scandal has revealed incidents of sexual assault, sexual harassment, misuse of government funds, and ethical misconduct.

           Kodiak College is looking to add some new fishing-related courses to its curriculum, and is seeking public input on the matter.
           There will be a roundtable discussion on potential vessel repair and maintenance courses that the college would like to offer, and the community is invited to share what they would like to see offered in those classes and what they’d like to learn. The discussion is scheduled for Friday in room 106 of the Benny Benson Building at the college. Starting at 9:30 a.m., all interested shore-based parties and service providers are invited to attend, followed by a discussion with boat owners and crew members at 1 p.m.
            The discussions are expected to last an hour and are an opportunity to provide input for making the classes a reality in Kodiak.
            For more information, folks can contact the college’s maritime workforce development coordinator, LA Holmes.

           It’s no secret that Kodiak’s animals and plants have long provided sustenance for those who call the island home. However, one local plant enthusiast has looked beyond the dinner table in terms of what local plants can provide. In recent years, Gayla Pedersen has used her knowledge of traditional Native uses for plants to create her own line of natural products.
           “It started a couple of years ago with some encouragement from a couple good friends. And I have this desire to pick and collect herbs and I had jars and jars of them all over my house and a friend of mine said why don’t you make some stuff out of them and sell it.”    
             She started with some recipes that she collected over the years and turned her collection of herbs into lotions, tinctures, chapsticks, salves and teas. Her goal is to keep it as pure as possible, and she uses organic oils, butters and primarily uses glass packaging and cold processing methods.
             Pedersen said every year she develops a favorite ingredient, and this year one of the local plants she focused on was pineapple weed.
              “And it’s been a long term relationship trying to develop and get to know this plant and I’ve had some really amazing successes with it. Including things like making a remedy for nightmares, with incredible success. It’s amazing.”
