            The new library is still three weeks away from opening its doors to the public, but its new director is hard at work making sure things come together by then. Katie Baxter hails from Massachusetts, but arrived in Kodiak last month in time to help move the library’s materials from the old building downtown, to the new one on signal hill. Baxter said her decision to leave Massachusetts came about last June, when she began seeking out employment opportunities beyond the East coast.
             “And I was just at the point where I needed to think outside the box a little bit. The American Librarian Association is a wonderful professional association of usually an average of 65,000 members. So it’s a pretty big organization. And they have a job list. So I just sat down one rainy Saturday and pulled up the list and I could sort by state. So I picked five states. And Alaska has always intrigued me, never been, but I can remember being five years old and saying to people I want to go to Alaska. So I thought I’d start with Alaska.”

             She said there were several job openings in the state, but Kodiak’s job description and aspirations for the new building drew her in and ultimately helped her decide to apply. Baxter said her love of literature spans well into her childhood, but it wasn’t until she got a job at her college library that she became passionate about libraries themselves.

           There will be some new borough assembly faces on various community boards and committees this year. Each year the borough mayor appoints assembly representatives to 16 local boards and committees, ranging from the borough’s Architectural Review Board to the Kodiak College Council. This year newly elected Mayor Jerrol Friend decided to switch things up, and reassigned assembly members for 12 of those positions.
           “And I preached this before when I became the mayor. You know, I heard several people call me and talk and leave messages and stuff and they felt comfortable board. And you feel comfortable on a board, that’s a good reason not to be on there anymore because we need other people to find out what these boards do and that’s what I really wanted to try to do. When I was on the assembly for six years I sat on two boards – the whole time. I don’t have a clue of what these other boards do. And we have to make motions and move and make decisions on these boards and that’s what I really tried to do, was to get people better informed of what these boards do. And that’s how I came up with this list.”
            Assemblyman Mel Stephens agreed with Friend’s idea to move assembly members around, even those who have served on the assembly and certain committees for multiple years.

             Today is the first day of work for the borough’s new code enforcer, Neil Horn.
             Bob Peterson, the borough's community development director, said Horn was selected from a field of well over a dozen applicants for the position.
            “And we felt he was the most qualified applicant and the one that would be the best fit for the borough," he said.

            Horn will be in charge of handling complaints about zoning compliance and solid waste enforcement and work on the junk car problem in the borough. Horn replaces Jack Maker, who last month took another position within the borough.

    The only two teams to defeat the Kodiak High School Bears at the state volleyball championships were the ones who eventually faced off for the state title. Every other team that came up against Kodiak, went away empty-handed.
    The Bears tied their best performance ever at state with a third-place finish over the weekend in Anchorage. South beat Dimond three games to one to take the state title.Two Bears, Isabel Riina and Hannah Wandersee, both were named to the All-Tournament Team.
    Kodiak started its run with a sweep of the host Chugiak Mustangs on Thursday, but fell to the eventual champion South Wolverines later that day. On Friday, the Bears started their march up through the losers’ bracket, downing Colony 3-0, following that up by sweeping Chugiak again Saturday morning to set up a match against Dimond. Kodiak stayed close in the first game, losing 22-25, but rebounded to win decisively 25-to-11 in the second. Dimond came back to win the last two games to take the match, ending the Bears’ otherwise spectacular season where they went undefeated in Northern Lights Conference play.
