    When Kodiak High School students arrived at school this (Wednesday) morning, they were welcomed by the acrid smell of soot. According to an announcement by the school district central office, a boiler backfired before classes and the smell was picked up by the building’s air handlers and piped throughout the building.
    Maintenance personnel replaced the air filters and tried to ventilate the building as best they could before student showed up, though the smell lingered.
    Tests done by the maintenance department to measure the carbon monoxide levels in the school showed they were within safe levels, and was backed up with an additional test conducted by the Kodiak Fire Department.
    Classes are being held, and school officials posted that they are following all possible safety procedures.

            It was a moment almost seven years in the making. Yesterday morning the new Kodiak Public Library opened its doors to eager book worms and began its first day of regular operations at the new location on Signal Hill. Director Katie Baxter said the wave of visitors throughout the day was steady, which was nice after an eventful grand opening celebration on Monday night.  
            “The grand opening at the library was just a terrific celebration. It was well attended and everyone came into the building with, I think a sense of expectation, and yet when they walked through their expectations were just blown out of the water. Because everyone’s jaw just dropped when they walked into the lobby and really got a sense of place. I think they had not even imagined just how beautiful the building is.”
             Baxter estimated that there were more than 400 attendees of Monday’s grand opening. She said the line was out the door, around the block and back toward the high school. Yesterday’s opening to the public also went well, and she said she was pleased with the number of visitors.   
             “Oh it’s so nice people are coming in with cameras and families, little ones exploring the children’s room and people are certainly coming in to do their work, their business. It’s been a nice flow of people. Folks are able to come in and take their time and do what they need to do. So the staff is having a great time seeing everyone and helping folks.”)
             The new library is open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays. It will be open between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sundays.

            December might sound like an odd time to talk about gardening, but the topic was one of many during last night’s city council work session.
            Kodiak Soil and Water Conservation District is hoping to start a community garden sometime in the next year, and would like to use city land to do so. Last night District Manager Joe Dinnocenzo presented the idea to the council and asked them to consider some sort of land use agreement.  
           “So our proposal and I’ve since talked to Aimee and Mark Kozak a little about the idea and we came up with maybe a tentative idea of possibly using land on Larch Street that you guys own. The 1000 to 1300 block of Larch Street.”
            Dinnocenzo said there is a community garden out at the Fairgrounds currently, but users don’t have access to water and its location so far out of town isn’t ideal for those who might need or want to use it. He said the district’s goal is to have a location semi close to apartment buildings with the thought that folks living in them don’t have land to garden and would use the community space.
             He said the hope is to draft a memorandum of understanding with the city to use land for a series of small, raised garden beds.
