            Most people take medicine only for the reasons their doctors prescribe them. But the National Institute on Drug Abuse says 20 percent of people in the U.S. have used prescription drugs for non-medical use.

            That is drug abuse-and it is a serious and growing problem.

            Thursday night a group of concerned citizens met with representatives from a wide range of  local organizations to learn more about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall attended the forum. She spoke with organizer Emily Arnick who is the program manager for the Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse grant for the Native Village of Afognak. They spoke about the need to rethink the way we talk about and use prescription drugs.

Kodiak Teenager Killed in Mission Road Crash
Thursday, 16 September 2010

Associated Press

           A 19-year-old Kodiak woman has died of injuries suffered in a pickup crash.

Reann Christofferson was ejected from the truck when it hit a guard rail and rolled.

Alaska State Troopers took the call on the crash Thursday just after midnight.

           They say Christofferson was driving her 1995 Ford Ranger east on Mission Road at a high rate of speed trying to catch up to another vehicle.

           Her truck left the road, struck the end of a guard rail and rolled, coming to rest in Mission Lake.

Christofferson was found unconscious outside the truck and was rushed by ambulance to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center. Hospital workers could not resuscitate her.

           A passenger, 20-year-old Oscar Vasquez of Kodiak, suffered what troopers called minor injuries.

           Investigators say alcohol likely was a factor in the crash.

The Democratic Party is fielding a challenger for Kodiak's House seat held by Republican Alan Austerman.

 

Terry Haines is a commercial fisherman and Kodiak city councilman. He filed papers Wednesday afternoon to run in the 36th District which includes Kodiak Island and parts of the Lake and Peninsula Borough.

 

Neither candidate was available for comment Wednesday but the district's Democratic chairman Dick Ross told KMXT his party feels the seat is up for grabs.

 

--          (houserace1      36 sec "It was a Democratic seat ... he can talk to.")

 

Austerman was first elected to state office in 1995 and has served a term in the state Senate. He spoke to KMXT earlier this week about a hypothetical challenger.

 

--          (houserace2    24 sec "It would be interesting ... opportunity to listen to that."

 

No debates have yet been scheduled. Election Day is November 2nd. Haines is up for re-election for city council next month. He confirmed today that he'll be running in both races.
