           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.”

    Kodiak wrestlers came back from the 4-A state championship tournament in Anchorage with two titleholders and a fourth place overall finish. The Wasilla Warriors won the team title.
    Kodiak Junior Joel Valdez won the 113-pound weight class after his opponent, Matt Glover of South Anchorage went out with a leg injury in the second round. In the 195-pound class, Kodiak’s Kerry Powers edged Palmer’s Caleb Deemer 1-to-0.
    At 120 pounds Kodiak’s Andrew Caballa was second after losing 10-3 to East’s Brennan Giard. Jay-Ar Small was pinned with just seconds left in the match by winner Paul Steffensen of Kenai in the 126-pound finals.

           A handful of volunteers gathered at the Kodiak Baptist Mission Heritage Center on Saturday for a community bike exchange. Kodiak Island Trails Network, along with several other local charities and churches partnered to collect used bikes all day, with the hopes of fixing them up and providing them to cannery workers at reasonably low prices.
           Sandra West was one of Saturday’s volunteers and said they hoped to get stuff in, fixed and out within the day so they wouldn’t have to store bikes anywhere.
            “So the idea is to collect them in the morning and then we’ve got some great bike mechanics that are going to come work on them and make sure that we can get them greased and air in them and we’ve got a lot of reflectors because we know when cannery workers are going to work, it’s dark. So we’re going to teach them the basic rules of the road, we’ve had people from other countries coming and one of the most common bike car accidents is bikers riding on the wrong side of the road.”
             West said there was a recent influx of about 80 foreign workers, many with refugee status, that are currently employed at Westward Seafoods. She said many have struggled to find housing that is near the canneries, and many are living miles away from work and the grocery stores.
             “The canneries will pick up workers but sometimes the workers need to get to the food bank or they need to go to the grocery store – other places than just work and home. Bicycle is the most efficient means.”

            The city and borough entered the New Year without a fisheries advisor, but they won’t be without one much longer. During its regular meeting last night the borough assembly approved a contract with Heather McCarty of McCarty and Associates for fisheries analyst consulting services.
             The contract is split between the city and the borough and will send McCarty to various fisheries meetings, including those held by the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council and Board of Fisheries. Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said he’s pleased with the hiring process so far. 
             “RFP was done correctly. It was advertised the proper amount of time. Responses were timely received, opened and rated. The fisheries work group had a logical approach in interviewing Mrs. McCarty. The references were checked, business license was received. I’m pretty comfortable with the process.”

             The contract is for 2 years and includes $5,000 a month plus reimbursable fees associated with travel. Cassidy said there is a 30 day out clause in the contract if there is some sort of break in the relationship.
             Assemblywoman Chris Lynch co chairs the Fisheries Work Group and was part of the sub committee that made the hiring recommendation.
             “I just want to say that this is our third year operating and the fisheries work group statewide has elevated themselves just due to our due diligence in keeping informed and following the issues that are required to keep our fishing community on the cutting edge and able make good decisions and good representation decisions. It’s imperative that we keep that up by hiring this caliber of an analyst.”
