Not All Recall Sen. Stevens Fondly

            In the wake of Senator Ted Stevens' death Monday in a plane crash near Dillingham, people from throughout the state and nation have honored and shared their memories of him and the work he did over the course of 40-years in the U.S. Senate. But not all of it has been positive.

            Alvin Felzenberg, writing in the U.S. News and World Report online, called Stevens "... the personification of arrogance, a bully, a walking argument for term and even age limits...."

            In his article posted Wednesday, Felzenberg, a teacher and author, who was the spokesman for the 9/11 Commission, decried the politics of Stevens and the late Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia as those of greed, as they steered money from the powerful appropriation committee to their states.

            Stevens was also a controversial figure in fisheries policy. In the 1970s, Stevens, working with Senator Warren Magnuson of Washington State, moved American territorial waters out to 200 miles. Before that, foreign fishing boats could harvest seafood within sight of U.S. shores. But in later years, when he pushed through rationalization, and with it catch shares for fishermen and processor shares for seafood companies, his popularity wavered in many fishing communities. Especially among fishermen who lost their jobs through consolidation of fishing effort, and the merchants in the towns that lost the money the fishermen brought in.

            Kodiak's Rhonda Maker, an outspoken opponent of catch shares and rationalization policy, called into APRN's Talk of Alaska with Steven Heimel this (Thursday) morning during a show remembering the late senator.

            More than 100 people from all over came to Kodiak this week for the annual St. Herman's Pilgrimage to Spruce Island. 

            Father Herman was America's first Russian Orthodox Saint. He lived much of his life on Spruce Island where he ran an orphanage for Native children from around Kodiak.

            Father Herman and several other monks arrived in Kodiak in September, 1794 during the Russian Period.

            The annual pilgrimage to the site of a small church brings people from all regions of the world. This year included a contingent of Russians, and the Metropolitan of the Russian Orthodox Church in America, who lives in Washington, D.C.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall spoke with Metropolitan Jonah, while onboard the charter boat Sea Breeze on the way back from Spruce Island.

225px-ted_stevens.jpg            Political and industry leaders in Kodiak reacted with shock and sadness today upon hearing of the death of former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens in a plane crash northwest of Dillingham Monday night. Stevens was en route to an exclusive fishing lodge on the Agulowak (ah-GOOL-ah-wok) River owned by telecommunications company GCI when the plane went down in severe weather. The cause of the crash has not yet been determined. The plane, a de Havilland Otter on amphibious floats, was also owned by GCI.

            Kodiak Mayor Carolyn Floyd said Senator Stevens was always eager to help the city and the state.
