            If you're a business owner, or are thinking a small business is in your future, you may want to sign up for several special training sessions being held in Kodiak on Monday and Tuesday the 16th and 17th.

            Sponsored by the state's Small Business Development Center, two workshops are slated as well as a free business counseling session for individual business owners.

The "Business Start-up Workshop" runs 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Monday. The instructor will identify skills, provide information, and give resources that will help you start a business on Kodiak Island. The start-up workshop is free.

            The Monday afternoon session - titled "Everyone Needs a Business Plan" - will guide you through ways to strengthen your business plan by creating meaningful narratives that describe your business goals. It will help you establish budgets, plan strategies for marketing and give you techniques for evaluating your successes and failures. The business plan workshop costs $40.

            The instructor for the workshops is Bryan Zak who is the South West Regional Director of the Alaska Small Business Development Center. In addition to the Monday sessions, Zak will also be available on Tuesday for free client counseling.

            The workshops and business counseling will be held at the chamber of commerce building at the ferry dock. The deadline for sign-up is today (Friday).

            An unidentified teenage girl was injured when she was struck by a bullet from a firearm as it was apparently being unloaded. The 16-year-old Kodiak girl was hit in the buttock by the round on Sunday in Chiniak, reportedly while the firearm operator was trying to clear the weapon of bullets.Messages left with the troopers about what kind of firearm was involved were not returned Thursday.

            Alaska State Troopers were notified at about 5:30 Sunday afternoon by Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center staff of the shooting victim being treated in the emergency room. She suffered non-life threatening injuries and was released the same day. After interviewing her, troopers determined the incident occurred several hours earlier at a cabin in Chiniak.

            At about 7:30, troopers contacted a 24-year-old man who was present during the shooting. He was arrested, but for driving under the influence, not the shooting. He was jailed on $500 bail. The investigation into the shooting continues.

Not All Recall Sen. Stevens Fondly

            In the wake of Senator Ted Stevens' death Monday in a plane crash near Dillingham, people from throughout the state and nation have honored and shared their memories of him and the work he did over the course of 40-years in the U.S. Senate. But not all of it has been positive.

            Alvin Felzenberg, writing in the U.S. News and World Report online, called Stevens "... the personification of arrogance, a bully, a walking argument for term and even age limits...."

            In his article posted Wednesday, Felzenberg, a teacher and author, who was the spokesman for the 9/11 Commission, decried the politics of Stevens and the late Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia as those of greed, as they steered money from the powerful appropriation committee to their states.

            Stevens was also a controversial figure in fisheries policy. In the 1970s, Stevens, working with Senator Warren Magnuson of Washington State, moved American territorial waters out to 200 miles. Before that, foreign fishing boats could harvest seafood within sight of U.S. shores. But in later years, when he pushed through rationalization, and with it catch shares for fishermen and processor shares for seafood companies, his popularity wavered in many fishing communities. Especially among fishermen who lost their jobs through consolidation of fishing effort, and the merchants in the towns that lost the money the fishermen brought in.

            Kodiak's Rhonda Maker, an outspoken opponent of catch shares and rationalization policy, called into APRN's Talk of Alaska with Steven Heimel this (Thursday) morning during a show remembering the late senator.
