            The Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association will be making a pitch at ComFish this week for an ambitious project to rejuvenate faltering salmon runs on the west side of Kodiak Island. The association's operations manager Gary Byrne says the goal is to restore three lakes that he says have commercial potential as producers of sockeye salmon.

Wednesday, 13 April 2011

            As expected three incumbent board members were returned to the Kodiak Electric Association Board of Directors for another three-year term. 

            Also at Monday's annual meeting, electric co-op members voted to approve all four ballot propositions being considered.

            The three re-elected board members are Ron Acarregui with 764 votes, Cecil Ranney with 760, and Ben Millstein, who received 759 votes.

            Three of the four ballot measures were largely housekeeping matters, but the fourth dealt with the Operation Round Up program for funding local scholarships. The approval of the measure allows the program to continue, with members' bills being rounded up to the nearest dollar, and the change going into the scholarship fund. The round up program will continue as the default for billing unless a member chooses to opt out of the program.

            At a special board meeting Tuesday, board members elected officers. President of the board is Cliff Davidson, vice-president is Acarregui, and Stosh Anderson was elected secretary/treasurer.

            The Senate leadership Monday hardened its opposition to Governor Sean Parnell's tax reduction for the oil industry. In a speech from the floor of the Senate, President Gary Stevens called for caution in moving the bill along - warning his fellow-members to be suspicious of those who promote fear that the trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline will be closed if the legislature doesn't pass the tax break.

            Stevens said the legislature needs information, data and cooperation from the administration and industry before deciding whether to cut taxes. He reminded supporters of the tax bill that rushing to a conclusion will not work.

            Stevens also pointed out production estimates -- in legal proceedings last year - show the pipeline to be still operational until 2047,and will be viable with only a third of the production it how carries. Stevens said the TAPS line will not close - in fact, if it were not there, it would be built now.

            The governor's response came in an e-mail from Press Secretary Sharon Leighow who pointed to statements made by Conoco-Phillips CEO Jim Mulva last week that the company has $5-billion in projects ready to go if the tax regime were changed. Stevens asked in his speech why Mulva through his employees and lobbyists had not made the same commitment before the legislature during House hearings.

            Leighow said the Senate cannot dispute that oil production is down - and that affects Alaska's economy.

Capital Project Budget Unveiled

            The legislature at last has a first draft capital projects budget to consider. The Senate Finance committee released its version of the plan Monday afternoon.

            Locally, the school district, the Kodiak Electric Association's hydro electric expansion and public library fare well. Meanwhile all funding for the Alaska Aerospace Corporation has been cut.  Committee Co-chair Bert Stedman of Sitka told reporters that the $2.9 billion budget is fiscally responsible as it emphasizes future savings.

            Going line by line inside the $2.9 billion budget prepared by the Senate includes $15.5 million for the Kodiak high school, $6.9 million for a new public library and $7.5 million for Kodiak Electric Association which is working to expand capacity at its Terror Lake hydro electric plant.

             The Senate has also removed any requirement for a local match for $3.6 million the governor has set aside for a UV water treatment plant for the city of Kodiak. Also included are $2 million for improvements to the city's Baranof Park and $1.6 million for an eight-foot pedestrian/bike path from Pier 2/city dock to downtown. There's also $384,000 to design an extension leading all the way to Dead Man's Curve.

            Villages fared as follows: Earmarked is $1.5 million for Old Harbor's airport and $237,500 for hydroelectric. And there's nearly $108,000 for a sewer line repair in Akhiok.

            But eliminated from the Senate's capital budget is any funding for the Alaska Aerospace Corporation. The governor's budget had allotted $4 million. That was less than the $10 million requested by the state-owned corporation that operates the Kodiak Launch Complex. But those funds didn't survive the Senate Finance Committee.

            Sen. President Gary Steven's chief of staff Katrina Metheny said it was not Steven's doing. She said the senator does support the Alaska Aerospace Corporation, adding there would be opportunities to re-insert the funding at a later date though she offered no commitment it would happen.

            The committee begins hearing details of the new bill Tuesday.

            The mail is again flowing to the island community of Adak after an apparent dispute between Alaska Airlines and the Transportation Security Administration caused the airline to suspend carrying larger parcels on its passenger flights.

            In most cases parcels have been rerouted on other airlines. But Adak's only scheduled connection is a twice-weekly Alaska Airlines flights that is subsidized by the federal government.

            People in Adak were informed April 1st that priority parcels greater than 16 ounces could no longer be delivered; this was a concern as prescription medication is often shipped priority and alternatives are more expensive.

            U.S. Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich intervened last week. At the request of the airline, Begich penned a letter to TSA administrator John Pistole asking for a waiver for Adak, noting "the difficulty in applying a one-size-fits-alls approach to security."

            Alaska Airlines has confirmed the disruption but has declined further comment.
