            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly may be taking a closer look at its fireworks ordinance in the future. Despite hearing fewer noise complaints than usual over the Fourth of July weekend, Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said two complaints were sent to the borough online concerning the amount of fireworks and noise in residential areas.
             “They felt like the borough’s firework policy was failing and really directed the borough to try and do something different.”   
               Cassidy said the borough dug into the matter a bit and discovered that despite the limited complaints the borough, the Alaska state Troopers and borough fire departments were quite busy over the holiday weekend addressing community concerns and fires caused by fireworks.
              Bayside Fire Department responded to two fires out at White Sands beach and Womens Bay Fire Department was called to a fire just past the trailhead to Heitman Lake. Cassidy said the fact that folks aren’t being cautious in dry areas is concerning, and unfortunately avoiding that is what leads to problems in residential areas.

    The Kodiak Safeway store was closed for several hours Sunday due to a fire in the bakery. Store Manager Mike Murray said in a post to Friends of Kodiak that the fire was limited to the smoke stack of one of the store's two baking ovens.
    The Kodiak Fire Department responded and evacuated the store while police kept cars away. Murray said closing the store at the time was the right thing to do for everyone's safety.
    He said the firefighters inspected the kitchen from the oven to the roof and found no damage outside the smokestack.
    Murray said the store was back to normal by early evening.

           The design process for a new emergency shelter in Womens Bay is nearing completion. Borough Engineer Dave Conrad said the borough’s architectural review board approved the 65 percent design drawings and specifications, and expects the final drawings to be approved by the board sometime in August.
           Conrad said the shelter, which is a 3,550 square foot addition to the current Womens Bay Fire Department will have area that can be used by the fire department, community events and meetings and, of course, emergencies. He said the fire station has been listed as the Bells Flats’ community shelter in borough documents for years.
            “And it was never constructed to accommodate that particular function.”   

            He said people from Bells Flats have been lobbying for a new shelter and community space for years and is pleased that it is nearing reality.

Yasent Oliver/KMXT
            Hello, my name is Yasent Oliver, a summer intern at KMXT as part of the station's summer archiving project. Over the past two weeks, I was able to listen to quite a few tapes, but the one that stood out to me the most was an NPR program on suicide among Native American youth.
            "From National Public Radio, this is Horizons. I'm Vertamae Grosvenor."
            "Sometimes, living is so painful, that we've all felt like we just want to die. But what is it that makes some of us commit suicide, especially young people? The suicide rate for Indian teenagers is almost twice the national average. Indian and non-Indian, those who have lost their children feel the same pain."
             Throughout the tape, many people told stories of their experiences with suicide.

           More than half a dozen community members attended last night’s Borough Assembly work session to voice their concerns on a recently passed borough ordinance.
           During the assembly’s July 3 meeting, the assembly approved a debate decorum ordinance that, among other things, would prevent community members and those addressing the assembly from attacking or questioning the motives of another person. The ordinance passed in a 5-1 vote with Assemblyman Mel Stephens dissenting.
           The goal of the ordinance was to ensure people behave appropriately and respectfully during meetings, and provide guidelines for handling situations when that isn’t done. But many viewed the ordinance as an over step on the part of the assembly and a potential violation of constitutional rights.
           Dennis Symmons was one of a handful of folks that felt this way.
           “Despite what our legal firm has said, this is over the top.”
