Sen. Begich Renews Interest in Storis Disposal

    With Mexican authorities now showing interest in the environmental safety of dismantling the 71-year-old former Coast Guard Cutter Storis in their country, U.S. Senator Mark Begich says his office will look further into whether U.S. agencies acted appropriately in allowing the ship to be auctioned off and exported for scrap.
    “Did EPA and the Coast Guard knowingly ship something that had hazardous waste, like you said asbestos and other things, to another market? I don’t know the answer to that question; (but) that’s something we can follow up,” Begich said. “We have not been following the Storis since it’s been sold off for scrap. So we have not done any additional follow up, but you’ve added to the list, now we’ve got to put it back on the list to find out what’s going on. We will do that.”
    The Storis is currently at a shipyard in Ensenada, Mexico, south of San Diego. It was towed there in October by a company that paid about $70,000 for the ship at auction this summer.
    Marine historian Jon Ottman says U.S. agencies ignored environmental rules prohibiting the export of dangerous chemicals such as polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, which he claims could still aboard the Storis, encapsulated in old wiring and equipment.
    “If this vessel does indeed contain illegal amounts of PCBs, then this process has been flawed from the get-go, right from the disposal processes, transferring the ship from the Coast Guard to the GSA, and then selling through the GSA to the buyer in San Diego, and then government allowed the ship to be exported.”
    Ottman says he has been in contact with environmental agents in the U.S. and Mexico, and has been getting more cooperation from south of the border.

    Organizers of one of the local efforts to raise funds to help victims of typhoon Haiyan are preparing to bring the aid to the Philippines. Alvin Arboleda says total donations so far have reached $8,800, the majority of that coming from the sale of eggrolls.
    Almost $700 has been donated through deposit into an account at Wells Fargo, and another $750 was raised from a special Zumba exercise class conducted by Laura Arboleda.
    The Fil-Am Association of Kodiak has also been raising funds for victims of the storm, described as the largest in recorded history, which left nearly 6,000 dead and 2,000 missing.
    Arboleda and his friends had started raising funds to assist the area after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Bohol on October 15th, just three weeks before typhoon Haiyan. He said that he does not have any relatives in the most severely affected area, but he will be traveling to the Philippines Wednesday to deliver the money raised in Kodiak.

    Anyone who’s ever travelled on and off the island knows how expensive it is to do so. For Puni Timu, that price tag has kept her from seeing her parents for more than a year and a half. Puni went to Kodiak High School where she was a star player on the girl’s basketball team. When she graduated, she signed with the University of Jamestown’s basketball team in North Dakota. It’s been a long time since Puni last saw her parents and her teammates recently decided to something extraordinary for their Alaskan comrade. Check out the emotional video here.
