            The Port Lions girls track and field team brought home four state titles from the track and field championships held in Fairbanks over the weekend.

             Meanwhile Kodiak High School brought home two gold medals.

            Port Lions senior Katie Strong won the small school's 3,200-meter championship in 11-minutes 48-seconds, and the 800-meter in 2-minutes 25.8-second. Sophomore Raissa Boskofsky won the high jump with a leap of 4-feet 8-inches, and the 300-meter hurdles in 47.9-seconds.

              Kodiak's Jaymi Bethea sprinted to an early lead and cruised to a three-second victory in the large schools 1,600-meter race on Saturday, with a personal best time of 5-minutes 5.72-seconds. The Lady Bears placed 10th with 20 points. Wasilla won with 85.

            The Kodiak boys team of Caleb Nymeyer, Nathan Deer, Jordan Fogle, and James Osowski won the state title in the 4-by-800-meter relay. Coach Marcus Dunbar said the squad had lost at that distance five times this season, most recently at Regions last week. Determined to avenge those losses, the team ran the fastest 4-by-800 in the state this season, winning in 8-minutes 4-seconds. Overall, the Kodiak boys were 11th, with 22 points. Dimond took the team title with 74 points.

            An increasing number of dead birds have been showing up downtown near Oscar's Dock and it's attracted the interest of federal officials, who initially were concerned the birds were dying from an avian disease. But as Robin Corcoran, the bird biologist for the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge explains, there are a lot of possible issues at hand.

            A few hackles were raised during last week's regular Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meeting when the discussion turned to funding the school district.

             The school district has requested increased funding for the next school year. But the assembly is concerned there may not be enough money to fund schools at the present rate.

            Five Anchorage residents were rescued by the Coast Guard after their vessel began taking on water shortly before noon Sunday

             The 60-foot Kodiak-based pleasure craft Nordic Mistress sent a mayday call reporting that they were sinking 85 miles north of Kodiak and were abandoning ship.

            An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter was launched from Air Station Kodiak, while a HC-130 was diverted to the location to search for the crew of the Nordic Mistress.

            The crew was found at 12:35 p.m. near the partially submerged vessel. They had donned survival suits and were in a life raft surrounded by debris.

            They were hoisted to the helicopter and taken to Kodiak.

            An Anchorage Coast Guard search and rescue controller said the rescue went so smoothly in part because the people involved knew to put on survival suits and get into the life raft. He said it "could have been the difference between life and death" in this case.

            He also credits the vessel crew and passengers for knowing how to properly use the VHF marine radio to call the Coast Guard.

            Winds were 15 mph at the time of the rescue, with seas to six feet.

            There was an unknown amount of fuel onboard the Nordic Mistress, and no pollution was reported from the incident

          The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly Thursday night took the cautious approach to the question of school funding. The assembly committed $8.5 million to the school district for next year's budget. That's far short of the $11.2 million the school district was asking for. KMXT's Maggie Wall has more.
