North Pacific Fined $205K for Ammonia Dumping
Tuesday, 11 March 2014

    A Kodiak seafood processor has been fined over $200,000 after pleading guilty to illegally dumping 40 pounds of ammonia into the city’s sewer system in 2011. That announcement Tuesday from U.S. Attorney Karen Loeffler in Anchorage.
    North Pacific Seafoods chief engineer Bill Long is scheduled to be arraigned in state court on Friday on a charge of violating the permit regulated by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation.
    The count North Pacific Seafoods pled guilty to was a violation of the federal Clean Water Act. The company is based in Seattle and is a subsidiary of Japanese seafood giant Marubeni.
    The 40-pounds of ammonia, which is used in cooling and ice making in canneries, broke the secondary treatment at the city’s sewer treatment plant, causing a violation of the city’s Clean Water Act permit.
    The dumping was detected November 29, 2011 and was traced by the Kodiak Public Works Department to North Pacific’s APS plant on the Kodiak Waterfront. Long initially said the ammonia dump did not come from his plant, but later admitted to the discharge.
    A joint investigation by the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation determined that the facility had been discharging ammonia into St. Paul Harbor before and after the sewer incident.
    The city of Kodiak will receive $55,000 of $205,000 fine to be used for hazardous wast response training. The terms of probation ordered by Judge Ralph Beistline also require that North Pacific Seafoods provide training for its employees at all five facilities in Alaska regarding proper handling of hazardous wastes and specifically ammonia.

           After a pair of cancelled work sessions last week, it’s back to business for the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. The assembly will meet for its rescheduled special work session tonight and review the borough’s 2014 strategic plan as well hear a presentation on social media. Also on tonight’s agenda is a discussion about the assembly’s upcoming trip to Washington D.C. A handful of assembly members recently returned from Juneau where they lobbied to the Alaska Legislature on behalf of Kodiak. The hope is to do something similar in D.C., and make sure Kodiak the radar of Alaska’s congressional delegates.
            Tonight’s work session starts at 6:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers.
            The assembly isn’t the only governing body meeting tonight. The City Council will hold a work session of their own at 7:30 p.m. in the borough conference room. On that agenda is a request to install a memorial plaque somewhere in the city that would commemorate victims of the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake. March 27th is the 50th anniversary of that 9.2 magnitude earthquake, which resulted in a tsunami that ravaged Kodiak’s coastline.
Also on the city’s agenda is a presentation from the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board about an urban community plan, as well as a packet review for Thursday’s regular meeting agenda.

Murkowski Nominates KHS Senior to Military Academies
Monday, 10 March 2014

           Last month Senator Lisa Murkowski announced her nominations for appointments to U.S. military service academies, which included a student from Kodiak.
            James Carroll was nominated by Murkowski for both the U.S. Naval Academy and the U.S. Military Academy.
            Each year, Murkowski accepts applications from high school seniors for these nominations, and this year she nominated around 34 students from all around the state to various branches of military. The students are selected based on their academic performance, extracurricular activities and demonstration of leadership.
             Murkowski’s nominees for this year will now compete against candidates nationwide for a spot at the academy they were nominated for. A congressional nomination does not guarantee admission, but often helps in the process.

KHS Wrestlers Head to Arctic Games This Week
Monday, 10 March 2014

           The Kodiak Kid Wrestling program held its final tournament on Saturday, wrapping up the short season for most of the club’s younger wrestlers. Coach Kevin Lepola said those above the third grade, including middle and high school wrestlers, will keep wrestling for what is called the “extended season,” and work toward the state tournament in May.
Practice for that begins today, but two wrestlers will be heading north for competition this week as part of the Arctic Winter Games.
            Lepola said KHS Freshman Krystal Fabricante and Junior Joel Valdez will head to Fairbanks this week with Coach Michelle Canete to compete on an international scale.
             “So it’s kind of an ambassador from Alaska if you will. A team that travels. And they have a different style of wrestling one of the days and I think they compete in freestyle and then folkstyle as well.”
            The Arctic Games start on Saturday and run through March 22. The games are a circumpolar sport competition that brings athletes from northern and arctic nations together to promote athleticism and culture. Wrestling is one of about 18 sports featured during the week-long event, including snowboarding, volleyball, figure skating and cross country skiing, among others.

Kodiak HS Basketball Teams Rule the NLC, Head for State

    Going into the Northern Lights Conference championship tournament last week, the Kodiak High School Lady Bears were the odds-on favorite to come back with the championship trophy. After all, they were 22-and-0, and spent most of the season as the state’s top-ranked team. But also toting first-place hardware home were the Kodiak boys, who had been ranked second to the tournament’s host team.
    On Saturday afternoon, both the Kodiak girls and boys defeated Colony on the Knights’ home court to win the championships.
    The Lady Bears started slow, as they did in their opening game against Wasilla on Friday, but after a second quarter rally, it was no contest. Trailing 21-13 half way through the second quarter, the Lady Bears rallied with back-to-back three pointers by Jerica Nelson and Adrian Horn and went on a 15-point run to take the half-time lead 30-23. Kodiak didn’t let up in the second half, outscoring Colony 34-20 to win going away, 64-43.
    Colony Coach Jeff Bowker described the Lady Bears as “a scoring steamroller.”
    Hannah Wandersee led all scorers with 25, while Horn finished with 13, including four three-pointers. Carissa Cannon added 10, and Nelson, who played her freshman and sophomore years with Colony, drained seven for Kodiak.
    On Friday, the Lady Bears trailed the Wasilla Warriors by as much as 8, and by five in the fourth quarter, but rallied to win 55-47. It was only the second time this season Kodiak had not won by double-digits.
    Saturday’s title was the first for a Kodiak girls team since 1985, and the first Northern Lights team not from the Valley to win in 21 years.

    The Kodiak boys also trailed, but it was in the fourth quarter before rallying to beat Colony 56-50. The Bears led by 8 at the half, 28-20, and by 1 at the end of the third, 38-37. Though the Bears outscored the Knights in the fourth, it wasn’t until after Colony had taken a six point lead. Then Kodiak went on an 11-6 run, sparked by clutch free-throw shooting by Alec Canete-Hall, who finished with a game-high of 17, including hitting five of six from the line. Austin Frick had 13 points, and Jemuel Mangalus added 10.

    By virtue of making it to the Northern Lights Conference title game, the Colony Knights, both the boys and girls, will join the Kodiak High School Bears and Lady Bears at the state large school championships next week in Anchorage.
