Bears 5th at Anchorage Tournament
Monday, 27 October 2014
Jay Barrett/KMXT
The Kodiak High School Bears volleyball team went 8-for-8 in pool play Friday at a huge tournament up in Anchorage and wound up finishing fifth in the Gold Bracket on Saturday.
The Bears downed Grace, North Pole, Service and Nikiski on a busy Friday, sweeping each school two games to none.
They had to turn around and play early on Saturday morning and defeated Service, only to fall in the next game to eventual champion South Anchorage. 
In the consolation bracket, the Bears fell to East Anchorage and were bumped from the double-elimination bracket.
Kodiak's Isabelle Riina was named to the all-tournament team.

    Coming up this week, the Coast Guard gets busy as soon as the crab season begins, we hear how one CDQ group is doing, and maybe limitless power for False Pass to process fish and light up the town. We had help this week from KDLG's Mike Mason in Dillingham and KUCB's Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska.

          Alaska’s legislative session is still months away, but Kodiak’s City Council is already gearing up for it. Last night the council unanimously approved its list of capital improvement projects – a wish list of sorts for state and federal funding.
          First up on the list is Mill Bay Road pavement rehabilitation. City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said the hope was to originally replace the entire stretch of pavement between the downtown “Y” and Island Lake Road. However, the project will instead patch up certain sections of the road, much like what has already been done in some areas along the route. The result was a cheaper project for the city, with a similar end goal.
          “We were able to reduce that request down from $7 million as a rebuild from the Y to Island Lake Road, which is that most heavily traveled – each section of the road has its own traffic count but we have up to 12,000 cars a day in that stretch. So we were able to reduce it by not having to replace the whole road bed and just do a rehab.”   
           Now the project is estimated at $3.5 million.

          Kodiak’s Teen Court is recruiting new members these days. Classes are starting up early next month and those interested could become attorneys by mid January.
           The organization, which is youth-run with the help of adult advisers, provides legal services to teens, with more constructive punishments than they might face in an actual court system. Kodiak High School Senior Olivia Rivera is the board president for teen court and said they typically try to find punishments that fit the individual, rather than the crime.
            “Instead of the punitive justice system, which is what regular courts use, we use restorative justice – which instead of punishment fits the crime we select certain community work service projects or assignments that will fit the person, like the defendant themselves.”

Alaska Aerospace Seeks Bigger Launches

          Despite the fact that it is still in the midst of assessing damage from a failed missile test in August, Alaska Aerospace Corporation is soliciting companies for future launches, and is offering them more than $20 million.    The corporation, which operates the Kodiak Launch Complex, issued a request for proposals, or RFPs earlier this month for companies interested in medium-lift, commercial launches from the site. The money used to entice bidders comes from a $25 million appropriation by the Alaska Legislature.
           Matt Steele is the Vice President of Alaska Aerospace and said the money was set aside specifically for bringing medium-lift launch classes to Kodiak, but there hadn’t really been a lot of action from potential launch bidders.     
           “So what we did is kind of change the paradigm a little bit and put together a request for proposal where these companies could compete for the money in order to provide medium lift-capability to KLC. And kind of by changing that, as we expected, we’ve got a couple of launch companies now interested in using that money to further advance the medium lift capability here in Kodiak.”   
            Up until now, the current launch facility has only flown what Steele considers to be small launches, and the company wants to beef that up.
           “So we’re looking for things, roughly greater than  2,000 pounds to orbit, potentially up to maybe 5 to 7,000 pounds depending on the capability of the rocket in gross terms. But there’s some fidelity that goes behind that in qualifications as well, but bigger than what’s been flown out of Kodiak in the past is definitely what we’re looking for.”
            Steele said they are asking for folks to respond to the RFP before Thanksgiving, and the company will select the top two for further information and then hopefully select the winner by mid December and award that company the $21 million fixed-price contract. He said there are a few companies expressing interest, and they will have to commit to at least three launches between 2016 and 2020 if they are selected.
