          There were just a handful of folks in the audience during Thursday’s Kodiak Borough Assembly Meeting, but thanks to new technology, that doesn’t mean they were the only ones watching.
          Assembly and City Council meetings have long been broadcast on KMXT, but new software in the borough assembly chambers is allowing folks to stream meetings live from anywhere with internet access.
          Thursday’s meeting was the first of hopefully many to be streamed online, part of what Borough Manager Bud Cassidy called the video conferencing “soft roll-out.”
           “So what is happening is the camera in the center of the room is streaming you out live – I don’t know if there’s many people besides Paul in the back room watching you now. Obviously he’s trying to dial everything in. But you will have the ability, and I noticed this on our webpage right now, to click on a video streaming button – although it looks to be a little bit of a delay – and view your meetings over the internet.”

Aleutians Prep for Potentially Historic Storm

The Aleutian and Pribilof Islands are no stranger to strong winds and rough seas. And that's exactly what they can expect Friday, when a high-powered storm hits the Bering Sea. 
There's no doubt that the low-pressure system charging across the Pacific Ocean right now is massive. And if it reaches its full potential.
"This could be the strongest storm to hit the Bering [Sea] in possibly decades," said Dave Snider, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. He's basing his judgment on barometric pressure, which should drop fast -- breaking a record low set in Unalaska in 1977. 
Besides that, though, the storm will follow a familiar pattern in the Bering Sea. 
As pressure drops, winds will gather to hurricane force. And without any land in the way to block them, the gusts will create large waves -- up to 50 feet on the open water.
Mariners are being asked not to take any chances.

          Just days after many Alaska legislators were voted into office, the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly unanimously approved a contract for a Juneau lobbyist during the upcoming legislative session.
           During last night’s regular meeting, the contract for lobbyist Mark Hickey was approved, along with a $5,000 pay increase. Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said Hickey has been the borough’s lobbyist for 14 years, and has received the same salary of $40,000 for eight years. He said his work has been truly effective in Juneau and believed the raise was warranted.
           “He is probably highly endorsed by Senator Gary Stevens and by Representative Austerman, I think past and present assembly members who have worked with him have found him to be real approachable and very professional. I think we’ll probably see the need for his value more this year with potentially a new governor, probably a bunch of new agency folks as well if there is a new governor and Kodiak has a freshman legislator as well, Mr. Hickey is familiar with her.”
