Congressional Fisheries Debate

Why is it important for Alaska’s Congressmen to know about fisheries? Because 85 percent of Alaska’s fish and crab catches come from federal waters, meaning three to 200 miles from shore.

 

Come see Alaska US Senator Mark Begich and his opponent Dan Sullivan face off over fish issues, followed by Congressman Don Young and his challenger Forrest Dunbar. Wednesday, October 1 from 7-9pm at the high school auditorium. Submit questions at the door and learn who’s best for Alaska’s fisheries in DC.

One Dead After Boat Refrigeration Leaks Chemicals
Wednesday, 04 June 2014

           A refrigeration leak aboard a fishing vessel in St. Herman Harbor left one fisherman hospitalized and another dead yesterday.
           The Kodiak Police Department and fire and rescue personnel responded to a report of the Freon leak aboard the boat Alpine Cove. Freon is a caustic chemical used to keep refrigeration systems cold on boats and also in some air conditioning systems in cars.
           A press release from the police department said five crewmembers were evacuated from the boat and officers provided immediate medical attention until EMS personnel arrived. Two crewmembers were ultimately transported to the hospital where 30-year-old Cody Cecil of Everett, Wash., was pronounced dead.
            The other crewmember, 56-year-old Francis Rutten of Snohomish, Wash., is still being treated at Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center for exposure to Freon.
           Nearby vessels were evacuated yesterday by harbormaster staff as a precaution to the chemical release.
           A preliminary investigation revealed that repair work was being done to the Alpine Cove on Tuesday night, but it is unclear if that work is related to the Freon leak. The incident is still under investigation by the police department and the Marine Safety Detachment of the U.S. Coast Guard.

           Alaska’s oldest building has captured the interest of the Historic American Building Survey. Crews are in town this week to document the structure of the Baranov Museum, which was built by the Russian-American Company in the early 1800s.
           Tiffany Brunson is the director of the museum and said the Historic American Building Survey, also known as HABS, documents historical buildings around the country and is run by three different agencies, primarily the National Park Service.
           “So what they’ll do is they’re actually bringing digital building survey equipment to come out and survey the Barnov Museum – the entire structure inside and out, and create architectural drawings essentially for the Historic American Building Survey.”  
           Those drawings are then stored in the Library of Congress and will be available to the public.
            “It’s also of course available to us in the Park Service so that we have really good, really detailed architectural drawings of our building.”

Three Kodiak residents filed to run for the House District 32 seat. Kodiak City Councilman Rich Walker will face former Assemblywoman Louise Stutes and Assemblywoman Carol Austerman, daughter of current Representative Alan Austerman.
           The primary will be held on August 19 and the winner of those three will go on to face Cordova fisherman Jerry McCune in the November 4 general election.

'Run for Rescue' Focuses on Human Trafficking Awareness
Wednesday, 04 June 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

           This weekend people will have a chance to help raise money for victims of human trafficking around the world. Run for Rescue is a 5k, 10k and half marathon race sponsored by the Kodiak Assembly Of God. The race raises funds for the organization Project Rescue. Sonia Walker is an associate pastor at Assembly of God and organizes the race, which is in its third year running.
           Walker said she became aware of Project Rescue more than four years ago, and was impressed by the work the organization does educating people about human trafficking and rescuing women and children that are victims of the industry. She decided to start the run for rescue race here in Kodiak to spread the same awareness and help raise money for the organization.
            “The past two years we’ve raised $500 each year that has gone directly to Project Rescue. And I just hope it keeps growing. My dream is that it will take root throughout the state and even the nation, so people all over the nation will be running at the same time, same day for this cause and bringing awareness to this and to help with the funding of rescuing women and children.”
