On Friday, there was a half-page ad in the Daily Mirror for Democrat Forrest Dunbar, which in itself is not unusual in the days leading up to an election. But this ad gave credit to Kodiak for being the place where the youthful challenger's campaign to unseat 42-year Congressman Don Young started to gain steam. He spoke with KMXT's Jay Barrett during Monday's morning news.

The Kodiak High School swimming and diving team swept the Region III tournament over the weekend. The Kodiak girls won with 131 points, 63 more than runner up Colony, which edged host Soldotna by three. It is the girls' eighth straight region title. The Kodiak boys racked up 107 points and downed Soldotna by 39 points to win their sixth straight.
There were six region records broken, all by Kodiak swimmers. Tahna Lindquist set new marks in the 200 yard individual medley and the 500 freestyle. In that last race, Lindquist broke the five-minute mark with a time of 4-minutes 56.5 seconds, a time that was more than two seconds faster than the boys' 500 yard freestyle winner.
Ila Hughes set the record in the 50 yard freestyle.
On the boys' side, freshman Talon Lindquist set marks in the 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke, and the boy's 200 medley relay team set another. The records Talon beat were set 20 years ago.
Both Talon and Tahna were named Region III swimmers of the year.
We have full results after the jump.

Fuel Barge Briefly Aground Near Kodiak
Monday, 03 November 2014
Jay Barrett/KMXT
A 382-foot barge carrying 2.2-million gallons of fuel was briefly aground on Saturday, two miles from Kodiak City. The “DBL-106” refloated on the next tide, but the Coast Guard ordered it to anchor up until a damage assessment was conducted. The 124-foot tug Bismark Sea, owned by Kirby Offshore Marine, was the towing vessel.
There was no immediate sign of pollution as a result of the grounding, and the barge was to have been boomed off until a damage assessment was conducted.
There were no injuries in the incident, and weather at the time included 15 mph winds and 3- to 4-foot seas.

           The Kodiak Community Foundation wrapped up its first year of fundraising and is looking for ideas on where to spend some money on the island.
           Katie St. John sits on the foundation’s advisory board and said the relatively new organization raises funds for a permanent endowment in the Kodiak community.
           “So as Alaskans we’re all pretty familiar with the Alaska Permanent Fund which is an endowment. And each year we receive dividends from the income from that endowment. So the main corpus of the fund stays there and we just receive the income form that and similarly, the community foundation, we would raise funds and that corpus would stay in an account and we would be able to put some of that interest back into that so that the fund itself grows and then we would also be able to use some of that funding to support local projects and local organizations here.”   
            She said it’s a way for people give back to Kodiak, but also have a voice in what is supported – things like community projects, organizations, schools, and wherever else people feel it should be distributed. Last year, thanks to matching funds from the Rasmussen Foundation, Kodiak’s Community Foundation ended the year with almost $95,000, which was the needed seed money to start gaining interest in future years.
             St. John said that money will serve as the organizations financial foundation, and future interest will be put toward the community. However, they were able to create a $5,000 grant opportunity and are soliciting the community for ideas on how to spend it locally.
