Kodiak Top Spot in Alaska for Raising Kids
Wednesday, 29 December 2010

            Parents may already know this, but the suitability of Kodiak for raising children has been recognized by a national magazine. Bloomberg Business Week has named the city of Kodiak as the best place to raise kids in Alaska.

            The short article touts the area's median family income of $80,000, the number of elementary schools and Kodiak College, the four museums and the easy access to recreation in the great outdoors.

            The magazine underestimates the area's population though, listing it at 56-hundred - that's a thousand below that inside city limits and about half the greater Kodiak area.

            On the Business Week web site, a commenter identified only as "Brenda," who said she was born and raised here, also praised the city's education system, good housing market and short commutes to work. She also said the weather is often better than the East Coast - which at least this past week has been true.

            The runner-up in Alaska for the crown of best place to raise children was Kasilof, a bedroom community south of Kenai and Soldotna on the Kenai Peninsula. Communities winning the title in other states include Centerville, Indiana; Bozeman, Montana; and Pendleton, Oregon.

            One of the recurring issues the Alaska Legislature has been faced with this past decade has been the cost of retired and retiring employees. The state went from a defined benefit plan, which guaranteed retirement checks and healthcare for life, to more of a self-directed 401-K-style plan. Then came the news a few years ago that the actuary the state employed to guide its retirement investments miscalculated to the tune of about $10-billion.

            Senate President Gary Stevens of Kodiak says that it's one of the pressing issues he'd like to see addressed in the coming legislative session.
