Island Seafoods Formally Changes Name
Wednesday, 05 January 2011

            A Kodiak seafood processor has officially taken the name of its parent company seven years since its acquisition. As of January 1st, Island Seafoods is now officially Pacific Seafoods, taking the name of the Portland, Oregon-based company that bought it in 2003.

            The name change has been a gradual one. A sign in front of the seafood processor and retail outlet on Shelikof Street bearing the name Pacific Seafoods was installed last summer.

            The Kodiak plant's general manager, John Whiddon, released a statement saying, "We feel this name change will only further the company's opportunities, as well as allow us to better serve our fleets and customers in Kodiak."

            The company continues to direct market retail seafood across the country through its website and storefront in Kodiak.

Grounded Flights Causing Headaches for Newspaper

            The Kodiak Daily Mirror is being temporarily printed in Fairbanks but the arrangement is running into kinks. A mechanical issue that grounded a cargo plane Tuesday morning meant that the more than 1,800 issues didn't leave the ground in time.

            Automatic calls to subscribers are going out this afternoon to alert them to the situation, says Daily Mirror Publisher Richard Harris.

            "We're working really hard," he said. "There's really only two reasons that they shouldn't be here on time and that's weather, and now mechanical reasons."

            Bad weather last week grounded a plane in Anchorage and prevented the paper to arrive in Kodiak on time. Subscribers received both Wednesday and Thursday editions bundled together. Barring more bad weather or another mechanical failure, subscribers should receive two papers Wednesday, Harris added.

            The Daily Mirror is ordinarily printed in Kodiak but its pressman left December 24th to take a printing job out-of-state. Harris said the process to find a new pressman is "well on its way" and he expects to get a replacement hired soon to resume local production.

            Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror's editorial staff completes each issue earlier than usual, sending each page electronically to Fairbanks where it rolls off the presses at about 1:30 a.m.

            About a dozen acres in Chiniak have been logged outside the area approved by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources. However, the state forester monitoring the operation says the Division of Forestry opted to hold a training session in Anchorage with the loggers rather than levy fines or other penalties.

            The new legislative session begins Tuesday Jan 18 and before they head down to Juneau, Kodiak's two legislators want to hear what constituents have to say about upcoming state issues.

            Senator Gary Stevens and Representative Alan Austerman will hold an open house this afternoon at the Legislative Information Office on Center Avenue. It runs from 4:30 to 6 p.m.

            Representative Austerman said there are a number of big issues facing the state and Kodiak and he'd like input from local residents.

            One major issue facing the state is the decline in oil revenues and how to replace the income which pays for 90 percent of the state's budget. There are also a number of big construction projects under consideration, such as a gas pipeline and a major hydroelectric dam in the Matanuska and Susitna Borough which is hoped will power much of the Rail Belt.
