Seafood Preservation Under Pressure
Wednesday, 04 March 2015

    University of Alaska Cooperative Extension Service agent Linda Tannehill, visiting Kodiak from Soldotna, taught a class Tuesday night to volunteers who later this week will help local canners get ready to put up this summer's bounty.
    On pressure cookers used in canning, Tannehill says the dial gauge is an important tool when processing certain foods, and that was the focus of last night's class.
    “It creates the temperature inside to 240 to 250 degrees so that it will kill the Clostridium botulinum spores in low acid food like meat fish and vegetables,” Tannehill said. “And that’s what those spores can cause. Botulism.”
    The volunteers are now prepared to assist the public with calibrating the gauges on pressure cookers. You can bring them to the Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center Thursday night from 6 to 7 p.m.

    Though Troopers are still awaiting autopsy results from the state medical examiner, their investigation revealed nothing suspicious aboard a Kodiak fishing vessel where a crewman was found dead Saturday morning.
    A little after 11 a.m. On Saturday, Troopers were notified by the skipper of the fishing vessel Alaskan Dream that 29-year-old Sean O'Callahan was found dead in his bunk.
    The Alaskan Dream was headed to fishing grounds near the south end of Kodiak Island, but turned around to meet Troopers back in Kodiak and turn over O'Callahan's body. It was then sent to Anchorage for an autopsy. 
    The Troopers conducted an investigation on board the Alaskan Dream and in their report say nothing suspicious was observed. It appears O'Callahan passed away in his sleep sometimes during the night.
    O'Callahan's mother posted to her son's Facebook page that she would be scattering some of his ashes in Kodiak waters and more in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, with dates to be announced.

     The Kodiak City Council took another step toward updating its aging utility infrastructure at Thursday night's meeting with the adoption of the downtown water and sewer master plan. 
     The current water, sewer and storm drain network under the streets of downtown were put in as downtown was rebuilt after the 1964 earthquake and tsunami, as Councilman Charlie Davidson noted.
     "And the have a life span of approximately 30 years. Well, we've almost doubled that. They're asbestos-cement pipes, so you can see we're skating on pretty thin ice on some of these. And with the present Alaska Municipal Matching Grant Program probably being reduced substantially, we've go to start realizing we've got to start saving for these programs. And these people who say cut and cut and cut, if you don't plan your future for your municipality, you won't have one."
     City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said the passage of the master plan would pave the way for the city to be able to seek the funding for such large infrastructure projects.
     "That will give us a guidance and the community some guidance on what the plan will be. Of course it's very expensive to replace that infrastructure, and we have to wait until there's money available through these traditional programs. We do not fund this straight out of the General Fund. We couldn't afford to do so."
     Councilman John Whiddon, no stranger to Cannery Row, said the upgrades were important to the city's industry.
     "But the critical infrastructure services, primarily services the seafood industry, with a couple of pumping stations that deliver water along Shelikof Street and Marine Way. I'm glad we've broke these out in phases and hopefully we can at some point we can secure the funding ... it's a very well written plan, so thank you."
     The measure passed the council unanimously.
