New Plaque Commemorates '64 Earthquake, Tsunami Vicitims
Monday, 07 April 2014

plaque_full.jpgA new plaque down at the spit honors those who died during the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake and Tsuanmi. In honor of the 50th anniversary of those events, the Kodiak Lions Club donated plaque, which is mounted on a rock from the granite quarry on Afognak Island. During those tragic events more than half a century ago the village of Afognak was decimated and many people lost their lives. The surviving villagers were relocated to what is now known as Port Lions, with the help of the United States government and the village’s namesake, the Lions Club. Brianna Gibbs/Photo

Doc Myers is a past president and current member of Kodiak Lions Club and said records show that 22 people from around the archipelago died during the events, which took place 50 years ago last month.

    The celebration of life service for Kodiak elder Robert “Bob” Hatcher will be held tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon at the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center at 4 p.m.
    A potluck repast will follow at the Kodiak Elks Club.
    Terrie Johnson, who is organizing the repast, let KMXT know that anyone who would like to bring a dish to share with Mr. Hatcher’s family and friends can simply do so, or give her a call with any questions.
    She also said the parking lot at the Elks will be available all afternoon, meaning folks can park there, drop off a potluck dish, and then walk to the service at the convention center.
    Mr. Hatcher passed away last Wednesday morning at the age of 87, after a long battle with cancer.

Another Record for Pick.Click.Give Donations
Monday, 07 April 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    The amount Alaskans give to charity each year through the PFD donation program “Pick Click Give,” continues to grow. Final figures were released by the organization last week after the Permanent Fund Dividend deadline passed last Monday, and Alaskans donated nearly $2.8-million, up $326,000, or 13-percent, from last year.
    The announcement showed average individual giving also increased from $94 last year to $104 this year. Still, a tiny fraction of Alaskans chose to give through Pick Click Give, amounting to less than 5-percent of those who filed for a PFD online.
    Pick Click Give administrators were upbeat nonetheless, noting that both the individual average and total figures were records for the six-year-old program. They say several factors may have contributed to the higher giving levels, including the expectation of a larger dividend this year, a new advertising campaign and a “Double Your Dividend” sweepstakes that will award a cash prize to 10 Alaskans who give through the program.
    In Kodiak, the Humane Society – long a favorite cause through Pick Click Give – was once again by far the biggest benefactor this year, receiving $8,250 in gifts. The Kodiak Public Library Association, Kodiak Public Broadcasting, and the Alutiiq Museum each received about $4,000. The Arts Council and Maritime Museum were in the $3,000 range, with the Senior Center getting about $2,000 and the relatively new Kodiak Community Foundation receiving just under $1,000.
    Overall, 512 organizations in 50 communities around the state received donations, with Bean’s Café in Anchorage on top with $143,225. Alaska Public Media, the parent company of APRN, which broadcasts its contribution appeals statewide over local public radio stations, was close behind, receiving $125,525.
    Here is the full Pick Click Give breakdown.

Pollock Seine Fishery Set
Monday, 07 April 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    Responding to direction from the Board of Fisheries, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has moved forward with a new pollock test fishery in Kodiak waters, using seine gear.
    At January’s Fish Board meeting here in Kodiak, board members and fishermen expressed interest in a walleye pollock test fishery with seine gear. In an announcement last week, the Kodiak Area Office of Fish and Game announced the test fishery will be conducted prior to June 9th. Given that time frame, interested fishermen need to register with the department by 5 p.m. Friday.
    Starting next Monday, the Department will start contacting registered vessel operators to coordinate the test fishing activities.
    The announcement adds that operators must obtain a Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission miscellaneous finfish permit card for purse seine gear. Contact the groundfish management biologists at Fish and Game in Kodiak for more information.

Course and Calendar Recommendations Emerge from Regents' Kodiak Meeting
Monday, 07 April 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    The University of Alaska Board of Regents met here in Kodiak last week, and agreed on two recommendations designed to help students who take classes from more than one campus at a time.
    One would create a common academic calendar for all campuses in the state, and the other would make math and English requirements the same across the system as well.
    The calendar will not go into effect until the 2015 school year, and the general education requirements the year after.
    Student Regent Courtney Enright said in a release that the calendar changes will help students, like herself, who take classes at multiple campuses at a time. In the past, she said, she’s had classes from Anchorage, Fairbanks and Southeast campuses in the same semester.
    The general education resolution would standardize class descriptions, numbers and titles.
