    Last week KMXT told you about the Food Bank’s busy plans for Thanksgiving, but really the entire holiday season is a busy time for them. Kelli Foreman works with community education for the Kodiak Baptist mission, which owns and operates the Food Bank.
    Foreman said in years past the bank’s food supplies have often dwindled down this time of year as the community needs become greater around the holidays. However, at the same time she said it’s amazing to see how generous the community gets during the season of giving.
    “It’s amazing how we end up getting everything we need at the right time. But that’s because of how helpful our community is and different efforts around the community to continue to get food. We give out a large amount of food each week and each month. You know we’re serving close to 1,000 individuals, and that’s a lot. So while we continue to have the food we need when we need it, it’s because of people donating food it’s because of these food drives and because of donations coming in that we are able to continue feeding people.”
    She said some years the community gives so much that it actually sustains the food bank well past the peak usage during the holidays.

Marine Debris Funding Moving Through Congress
Thursday, 05 December 2013

Liz Ruskin/APRN
    Two bills aimed at helping coastal communities deal with marine debris have advanced in Congress. Alaska Congressman Don Young, a co-sponsor, says they would make it easier for local, state and tribal governments to get money to remove rubbish that floats to their shores.
    One bill would broaden the ability the federal government to reimburse communities for cleaning up debris stemming from the 2011 Japanese tsunami, using $5-million Japan donated last year. The other would speed grants to communities in the midst of a severe debris event. Young says the bill doesn’t appropriate funds so it’s unclear how much would be available.
    Both bills cleared the House Natural Resources Committee yesterday.
    Japan estimates the tsunami washed 5-million tons of debris out to sea. NOAA said in September the greatest concentration of flotsam is likely to be northeast of Hawaii, about half way to the West Coast of the U.S., but that the debris field extends to Southeast Alaska and the Gulf of Alaska.

Pre-Hibernation Bear Sightings on the Rise in City
Wednesday, 04 December 2013

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    There’re a lot of reports this week of a bear sighting in the Selief Lane area of Kodiak. At least one, and perhaps two, brown bears were reported on Tuesday in the area between the 1200-block and the 1600-block, roughly from Maple Avenue to Lynden Way. Another sighting reported earlier to the Kodiak Police Department included a bear crossing Mill Bay Road.
    The reports are generally at night between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. A Dumpster near the small park on Selief seems to be a favorite location, as well as backyard residential garbage cans.
    Police officers have tried sirens and lights to scare the bear back into the nearby woods, but have had to resort to setting off noise making “cracker rounds” or shooting into the ground near the animals.
    Residents are advised to exercise caution when it’s dark, report all sightings and make sure there is no garbage or pet food near the home, which would attract a hungry bear.

    This week we’ve been bringing you new developments in the story of the former U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Storis, which is currently in Mexico, awaiting its fate. The one-time longest serving cutter in the Coast Guard will be cut apart and its parts melted down as scrap metal, unless there is a way to stop the process and bring the 71-year-old ship back to America.
    Supporters, including maritime historian Jon Ottman thinks there could be some hope to believe the ship will come home. He has gotten Mexican environmental authorities to examine the Storis to see if it contains toxic materials that would be exposed if the ship is cut apart.
    “I sent them documentation regarding the Storis, including the report used by the various government agencies involved, the Coast Guard, the GSA, the Maritime Administration and the EPA that were used to clear the ship for export. This includes the report created in November 2000 that sampled 39 locations onboard Storis for PCBs, and explaining to them not one of the sites in this report had anything to do with electrical wiring or components.”
    Ottman says he shared two letters with the Mexican authorities from former crewmen, who served aboard the Storis in its final years. Both stated they believed hazardous material remained onboard, despite reports to the contrary.
