Tuesday, 07 September 2010

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            There will be a new, though familiar, face on the Kodiak City Council by the end of October. The filing deadline closed on Friday.

             Kodiak Island Borough Assemblywoman Pat Branson is running unopposed for the one-year term open on the Kodiak City Council.  She is not seeking re-election to the assembly. The one-year seat is open after the resignation of Paul Smith, two years into his term. Councilwoman Mary Monroe, who is filling the seat temporarily, is not running for election to a full term.

            Meanwhile, there is a three-way race for the two, three-year terms on the council, and another familiar face is one of the candidates. Three-year incumbent Terry Haines, and one-year incumbent John Whiddon are facing a challenge by former long-time councilman Charlie Davidson. The top-two vote getters in the October 5th municipal election will be seated.

Mixed Results for Bears in Big Sports Weekend at Home
Tuesday, 07 September 2010

            The play off outlook for the Kodiak High School Bears football team took a hit Saturday at Baranov Park at the hands of the Homer Mariners. In the first game of the second half of the season, Kodiak now goes to 0-and-2 in the Northern Lights Conference, after falling to the Mariners 28-to-6.

            This upcoming Saturday, the Bears are on the road against the defending state champion Kenai Kardinals, and then play the homecoming game against Houston in week seven, before wrapping up the regular season on the road in Soldotna against the Skyview Panthers.

            Like the Homer contest, the last three games are in the conference, which will determine the Bears' playoff fate. Only first, second and third places are guaranteed a spot in the play-offs, as the champion of the new Southeast Conference will get the spot of the fourth place team with the worst record in either the Northern Lights or Great Land conference. The Bears have been to the play-offs for five consecutive years, including three appearances in the state championship game. Kodiak is 0-and-2 in the NLC and are 2-and-3 overall on the season.

 

            In other Kodiak High School sports, Jaymie Bethea continues to burn up the cross country course, clocking a time of 19-minutes 25-seconds Friday on the 5-kilometer track at Fort Abercrombie in a meet with Port Lions, Anchorage Christian and Grace Christian. Grace won the meet by eight points, however, 30 to 38 over the Bears. Port Lions was third with 83-points to ACS' 87.

            On the boys' side, Nathan Deer ran a 16-48 as Kodiak won handily, putting five runners in the top 10 and winning with 16 points to Grace's 36 and ACS' 83.

 

             In swimming and diving, Kodiak split with the Kardinals here at home. The girls won 139-to-46 Friday and 131-to-55 Saturday. The Kodiak boys were edged on Friday by two-points, 80-to-78, and beat again on Saturday, 83-to-75.

 

            In volleyball, also at home, the Bears dropped three to the Palmer Moose.

            Here's a riddle...what's got a white face, yellow eye and spreads like crazy?

            The Ox-Eye Daisy.

            That wasn't meant to be a rhyme, but as Maggie Wall reports it's a good ditty to keep in mind while out admiring flowers this fall.

Kodiak Salmon Catch Tops 11-Million
Thursday, 02 September 2010

            The salmon season is winding down in Kodiak Island waters, but the salmon keep coming in. The catch on September 1st brought the season's total harvest to 11 million fish.

            The Alaska Department of Fish and Game reports nearly 9-million of those are pink salmon, with about a third coming from the Karluk, Northwest Kodiak and Southwest Afognak district, another third from the Duck, Izhut and Kitoi bays, and the rest scattered throughout the Kodiak Management Area.

            Sockeye harvest is 1.4-million, with a third coming from the west side.

            Almost 700,000 chum salmon have been caught, and over 200,000 silvers, as well. A few kings are still trickling in, with the season total about 12,600.

            Escapement numbers through Wednesday show a good return of humpies to the Karluk River. The nearly 1.3-million pinks that have gone past the weir is the third-best in the past decade through September 1st. Almost 46,000 pinks have escaped at Litnik, second only to 2002 to-date in the past 10 years.

            Pink return to the Buskin River continues to disappoint, however, with only 11,434 past the weir, by far the lowest to-date in this decade. The previous low through September 1st was 41,554 in 2002. The escapement was as high as 218,000 in 2005, and was nearly 83,000 just last year.

            Additional salmon openings were announced today (yesterday) for noon. A 78-hour opening went into effect for the Outer Ayakulik section, the Outer Kukak Bay, Hallo Bay and Big River sections, and the Afognak District, except for the Southwest Afognak and Inner Kitoi Bay sections, which will remain closed. The Duck, Izhut and Outer Kitoi bays remain open until further notice. A 30-hour opening was announced for the Inner Kukak Bay section.

            Call fish and game or check their website for full details of openings and closings.
