           There’s a lot of moving and shaking in the Alaska legislature this year, especially when it comes to education. Last month Governor Sean Parnell introduced his omnibus education bill, which proposed a handful of changes to different aspects of the state’s education system.
            One of the biggest changes Parnell proposed was repealing the high school exit exam. In order for any student in Alaska to get their high school diploma, they must pass this test. The legislature has heard testimony over the past few weeks from parents and educators in support of repealing the exam, and many referred to it as an unnecessary obstacle to graduation.
             Kodiak’s Superintendent Stewart McDonald spoke on KMXT’s Talk of the Rock last week and touched briefly on the subject.
             “If removing the exit exam means our students can receive a diploma for completing a program without that exit exam, I’m all for that. If we really want to educate all children we need to find a way to make sure all of our children who complete programs get a diploma whether they’re in special education or otherwise.”

    A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew medevac’d an ailing mariner from a vessel in the Bering Sea near Cold Bay Monday evening.
    The Coast Guard received the medevac request from the 158-foot fishing vessel Arica after a crewman came down with severe abdominal pain, said Coast Guard petty officer Grant DeVuyst.
    "The hoist is what happens when we don't have a surface asset, or if there's not time for a fishing vessel or whatever kind of vessel to make it into port. So it's the only practical way to get someone who needs to be evacuated into the helicopter.”
    The helicopter and crew were stationed in Cold Bay for the fishing season. They've been there for the past couple of months. DeVuyst says the Coast Guard deploys groups from Air Station Kodiak to be on hand for rescues during the peak fishing times.
    "The Bering Sea, the Gulf of Alaska -- very huge bodies of water, but that's why the helicopter's already there, because there's such an increase in the number of fishing vessels out there, you're more likely to see accidents happening with more vessels, of course, so we're able to get on-scene quickly and get them back to care.”
    He said Monday night’s medevac was done by about 7:30 p.m. The Jayhawk crew returned the mariner to Cold Bay for a commercial flight to Anchorage. His current condition is unknown. The Coast Guard did not release his name.
    Eight-to-10-foot seas with winds to 35 mph were reported at the scene of the rescue, with visibility down to a half-mile. DeVuyst says it was typical rough weather that didn’t hamper the operation.

Lisa Phu/KTOO
    A bill making its way through the state legislature would allow municipalities to forego publishing public notices in local newspapers. Not surprisingly, many newspapers, already struggling with declining revenue, don’t like that idea.
    When the Juneau Empire’s publisher wanted to discuss the bill with its sponsor – and have his reporter cover the conversation, she declined, saying she felt it was unethical to mix the business side of the newspaper with the reporting side. As KTOO’s Lisa Phu tells us, the reporter, who would be familiar to Kodiak listeners, lost her job the next day.

           Alaska’s reality television spotlight continues to shine, only now it’s focusing in on family values. The latest TV series to hit the last frontier is hoping to highlight a “true” Alaskan family, one with multigenerational personalities and survival skills galore.
          Amberlee Mucha is the talent development producer for Wilma Productions, the company currently trying to cast this ideal family.
          “So we’re looking for families out there in Alaska and the Yukon who really have the pioneer spirit, are really gritty and like eat, breathe, sleep, live Alaska to the core. They’re the type of family that maybe they don’t live off the grid now but they have tons of experience out in the wilderness. They can tame a grizzly bear, hunt for anything, they can find food, water.”
