Light Diesel Sheen Coming from FV Savannah Ray
Monday, 09 March 2015

    The Coast Guard is monitoring a diesel sheen reported Thursday from the grounded 81-foot fishing vessel Savannah Ray off Long Island.
    Global Diving and Salvage has been hired to salvage the vessel, and Marine Safety Detachement Kodiak personnel are overseeing the salvage operations to mitigate potential pollution.
    The vessel, which has been grounded since Feb. 16, had previously not leaked any fuel or lube oil.
    A member of the Marine Safety Detachment Kodiak conducted an overflight  Thursday evening and observed a diesel sheen from the vessel that was approximately 300 to 500 feet in size. Coast Guard response personnel also reported the sheen was light and weathered and extended to the south away from the island.
    Chief Petty Officer Bryce Yturbe said the Coast Guard continues to monitor the situation and have not observed any negative impacts to the shoreline or wildlife, or any visible damage to the hull of the vessel. 
    There is a half-mile safety zone around the Savannah Ray and the Coast Guard continues to send out broadcast notices to mariners. This safety zone will be in effect through March 18, 2015.

    The Alaska State Troopers made a sizable drug bust on Thursday after a traffic stop of two teenagers on Mill Bay Road for having an improperly displayed license plate. The driver, 18-year-old Dakota Benton was found to have marijuana in his possession, so the Troopers impounded the 1997 Honda Civic and received a warrant to search the vehicle. There they found 17 grams of pot, LSD, meth, Xanax, alcohol, drug paraphernalia and over $200 in cash.
    Search warrants were then obtained for Benton's home and the home of the 17-year-old passenger. More cash and drugs, including a small psilocybin, or magic, mushroom growing operation and more money were found, as well as a handgun previously reported stolen.
    The two teens were arrested and held without bail pending arraignment on drug, alcohol and theft charges.

    We moved our clocks forward an hour yesterday for daylight saving time. But the state is looking at exempting Alaska from having to make that change in the future. Our reporter, Kayla Desroches, asked people in Kodiak if they think we should have daylight saving time.

    The Walt Disney Company is known for its coming of age stories. They’re often about identity, difficult transitions, and belonging. This weekend and next, the Kodiak Arts Council is taking on a Disney classic that’s gone from the screen to the Broadway stage and now to the Kodiak stage: Tarzan. KMXT’s Kayla Desroches has more.

    Public radio and TV in Alaska could lose $2.5 million next year if a proposed state budget cut goes through. It would be a small reduction compared to the overall deficit legislators need to close -- but it would eliminate more than half of the funding public media gets from the state.
    As lawmakers try to spare towns with only one source for broadcast information, KUCB's AR reports that distinction might not be so easy to make.
