afr-coho-tattoo-sm-web.jpg            Coming up this week in this first show of June, Togiak herring turned out well, new ways to estimate populations might mean a red king crab season in southeast some day again, and spring cleaning the Dutch Harbor way. We had help from KDLG's Mike Mason in Dillingham, KFSK's Matt Lichtenstein in Petersburg, and KUCB's Alexandra Gutierrez in Unalaska.

            Raising children is a challenge. Raising adopted children adds another layer of complexity, and if you throw in developmental and health issues, the challenges mount.

             But they are not insurmountable. A new book by local authors shows, from a parent and child's perspective, how those challenges can be met. "The Road Going," by Suzanne Bobo and her daughter Brittany Tregarthen, is the story of their life together, so far.

            The book can almost be seen as a roadmap of sorts for families of special-needs children, but Bobo says it should have broader appeal.

Property Tax Rate on Assembly Agenda
Thursday, 02 June 2011

            Borough taxes and how to balance next year's budget are back on the table for tonight's regular Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meeting.

             Tonight's agenda includes setting next year's mill rate for property taxes, changing the severance tax for fish and other resources, and adjusting the current year's budget to account for actual costs and incomes.

            Taxes and the budget have been especially contentious this year because of the shortfall in income and proposed cuts to school district funding. In addition, fishermen and others have criticized the severance tax increase for targeting a limited group of users and not the broad base the property tax hits.

            Right now the mill rate is proposed at point-25 mills with an additional 7-point-75 mills for school funding, for a total of 8 mills. Additional mills are assessed depending on whether the property is inside a service district.

Kodiak City Council to Meet Over Redistricting
Wednesday, 01 June 2011

            The Kodiak City Council will hold a special meeting tonight to take public comments and to discuss proposals for redistricting Kodiak's state house and senate districts.

             Tonight's special meeting begins at 6 o'clock in the borough conference room. The only items on the agenda deal with redistricting options.

           Over the holiday weekend it was learned that yet another proposal for Kodiak is being considered-putting Kodiak and Bethel in the same senate district. That means Kodiak's senate district would include Bethel by way of Tyonek, which is about 40 miles west of Anchorage and would bypass Bristol Bay, Dillingham and the Alaska Peninsula all together.

 

            Kodiak's Bob Brodie is a member of the state's redistricting board. He said the driving force in the Kodiak-Bethel proposal is that three of the state's 20 senate district needs to have a voting population that is at least 42 percent Native. Since Kodiak's Native voting population is about 18 percent it needs to be linked with a region that is about 80 to 82 percent Native. Brodie said both Bethel and Nome meet that requirement.
