            Merchants in the city of Kodiak enjoyed the second annual tax free day on Saturday. The day-long event was promoted by the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce and authorized last year by the Kodiak City Council. Patterned after a similar event in Southeast, Tax Free Day suspends the city's six-percent sales tax on the first Saturday of March each year.

            The chamber's economic development specialist, Trevor Brown, said businesses experienced mixed results, but he found most of them thought it was positive.

              The Coast Guard ice-breaker "Polar Sea" docked in Kodiak last week on its way to a scientific mission in the Bering Sea. The 399 foot-long vessel docked at Pier Two just ahead of the winter storm that hit Thursday night.

The Polar Sea's missions include scientific and logistical support for U.S. interests in both polar regions. Polar Sea is designed to move through six feet of ice at a speed of three knots. The Polar Sea and its sister ship Polar Star are the world's most powerful non-nuclear ice-breakers. The cutter routinely operates in the Bering Sea, Chukchi Sea, the Arctic Ocean, the Southern Ocean, and Antarctica.

From its home port in Seattle, the thirteen thousand, five hundred-ton cutter stopped in Kodiak to pick up the scientists who will conduct a study of the Bering Sea ecosystem from aboard the ship. The two-month-long  operation is part of a six year study that's supported by the National Science Foundation and the North Pacific Research Board.

While awaiting the embarkment of the scientists, the Polar Sea was opened to Kodiak residents for tours.

The Polar Sea's public affairs officer is Lieutenant J.G. Emily Holt who escorted KMXT's Diana Gish onboard. Holt said that when she joined the Coast Guard, she didn't picture herself spending months at a time on a ship in the world's coldest places.

Whiteout in Kodiak; Blizzard Conditions Until 4 p.m.
Monday, 08 March 2010

            Kodiak Island is under a blizzard warning until at least 4 p.m. this afternoon. The National Weather Service updated the storm to a warning at 9 a.m. and reissued the bulletin just a half-hour ago. Whiteout conditions have been widely reported around Kodiak City and Police Chief T.C. Kamai said accident and stranding reports are already rolling in.

            He emphasized motorists should not drive unless absolutely necessary:

            The blizzard, which is also affecting the Kenai Peninsula and Prince William Sound, is the result of a large low pressure system skirting the east side of Kodiak Island, drawing down colder air from the mainland. Northwest winds 35 to 50 miles per hour with gusts to 65 are forecast, and whiteout conditions in snow and blowing snow can be expected. Drifting snow on roadways may make them impassible.
