A Full Ballot Faces Voters Today
Tuesday, 04 November 2014
Jay Barrett/KMXT
It's General Election day across the nation. Here in Alaska we'll be faced with a ballot full of candidates and ballot initiatives. Polls opened at 7 this morning and will remain so until 8 p.m.
Voters in Kodiak, like the rest of the state, will decide who will best represent us in the governor's office, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
Candidates for governor include incumbent Republican Sean Parnell with his running mate the mayor of Anchorage, Dan Sullivan, and Independent Bill Walker and his running mate Byron Mallott, Libertarian Carolyn Clift and her running mate Andrew Lee, and the Alaska Constitution Party's J.R. Myers and running mate Maria Rensel.
Incumbent Democrat Mark Begich is seeking a second term in the U.S. Senate. He's challenged by republican Dan Sullivan – a different one than the one running for Lt. Governor – Libertarian Mark Fish, and unaffiliated candidate Ted Gianoutsos. Political observers nationwide are keeping an eye on this race, as its outcome could contribute to the Senate switching hands.
Forty-two-year incumbent Republican Don Young is seeking a 22nd term in the U.S. House. He's challenged by Democrat Forrest Dunbar and Libertarian Jim McDermott.
Republican incumbent Gary Stevens is seeking another term in the Alaska State Senate, and is being challenged by Democrat Robert “Moose” Henrichs of Cordova.
There is no incumbent in the Alaska State House race from our area, District 32. Cordova Democrat Jerry McCune, the president of United Fishermen of Alaska, will face Kodiak Republican Louise Stutes, a former Kodiak Island Borough Assemblywoman.
There are three ballot measures on our ballots today. Number 2 would legalize and tax the sale of marijuana. It's currently legal in Alaska to grow a limited amount for personal use, but illegal to sell any.
Question Number 3 would raise the minimum wage in Alaska from its current $7.75 per hour to $8.75 on January 1st 2015 and again to $9.75 per hour on January 1st 2016. If approved, ballot question Number 4 would require legislative approval of any large-scale mining in Bristol Bay. There is no ballot question Number 1. Retention of Alaska Supreme Court Justice Craig Stowers is on the ballot, as are various Superior and District Court judges, which vary by district.
Polls remain open until 8 p.m. KMXT, NPR and APRN will have results all evening.

              About 15 grams of heroin were prevented from hitting Kodiak’s street after an arrest last week. Kodiak Police Chief said the department received an anonymous tip via Crime Stoppers that two individuals would be transporting heroin to the island via the state ferry Tustumena.
              After compiling other investigative materials and obtaining a search warrant, Wallace said police were able to make contact with 26-year-old Greg Pruitt and 28-year-old Kevleen Clark when the ferry docked on Friday.
               “Our drug enforcement unit along with the Alaska State Troopers with some help from the Alaska Marine Highway System personnel, were able to make contact with Clark and Pruitt, and where in they found that they were in position of approximately 15 grams of heroin – all packaged in small quantities for distribution.”   
                Wallace said the heroin has an estimated street value of $7,500 in Kodiak.
                Both Pruitt and Clark were arrested and charged with misconduct involving a controlled substance in the second and fourth degrees. They were arraigned in court on Saturday with bail set at $20,000 for Pruitt and $15,000 for Clark.
               Wallace said the investigation is on going, and noted that both Pruitt and Clark are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law.

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.

Jay Barrett/KMXT
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.
