Congressional Fisheries Debate

Why is it important for Alaska’s Congressmen to know about fisheries? Because 85 percent of Alaska’s fish and crab catches come from federal waters, meaning three to 200 miles from shore.

 

Come see Alaska US Senator Mark Begich and his opponent Dan Sullivan face off over fish issues, followed by Congressman Don Young and his challenger Forrest Dunbar. Wednesday, October 1 from 7-9pm at the high school auditorium. Submit questions at the door and learn who’s best for Alaska’s fisheries in DC.

            Five Alutiiq songs that were lost to local Natives during the Russian era have returned to Kodiak thanks to Tlingit tribal elders in Sitka.

            The five songs were part of an exchange of information and experiences between elders and children at the Alutiiq-Tlingit Sharing of Cultures event held last week in Sitka.

            The Alutiiq Museum's Sven Haakanson was one of those attending the event. He says the songs originally travelled to Sitka with Native men who were forced to the Sitka area to hunt sea otters by early Russian settlers who held their wives and children captive.

            In what could be a replication of uncontrolled acceleration problems with Toyota cars elsewhere in the United States, a Toyota Highlander Hybrid jumped the curb at the Kodiak Spit and plunged into about 20-feet of water in the Near Island Channel on Saturday afternoon. Witnesses said it appeared the driver was unable to stop the mid-sized SUV before it went over the embankment.

            The driver was identified by Kodiak Police as 29-year-old Michelle Roberts. Chief T.C. Kamai said she apparently escaped through an open window before the car sank, and Harbormaster Marty Owen said a passing boat from Camp Woody picked her up. Kamai said she was taken to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center and treated for minor injuries including possible hypothermia.

            Kamai said no citations were issued in the incident and the investigation into the cause is continuing.

            The Ayakulik River closed to king salmon sports fishing on Saturday, joining the Karluk River, which was closed to kings in March.

But Fish and Game biologists say there are other places still open for the popular fish-and the reds will soon be coming in south of town.

Suzanne Schmidt is the Assistant Area Management Biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Kodiak. She explains the Ayakulik closure.

            Kodiak Island Borough Assembly members are grappling with whether or not to initiate a sales tax to pay for the new high school already approved by voters, or increase the tax rate for local property owners.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall was at last night's a work session where the assembly moved forward with putting the question of a sales tax on the fall ballot.

            Though it doesn't seem possible, engineers hired by the city have a plan that could provide better pedestrian access on Shelikof Street, while increasing parking on the narrow street.

            Aaron Christi of Dowl HKM told the Kodiak City Council this week that the project objective was to provide better access for cruise ship passengers, who disembark at Pier Two, because the funding comes from the cruise ship head tax.
