Coast Guard Investigator Testifies in CommSta Murder Trial
Thursday, 10 April 2014

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Coast Guard investigator says murder suspect James Wells had time to leave the Kodiak communications station, switch cars and drive home after shooting two co-workers.
    Special Agent Aaron Woods testified Thursday that he recreated the scenario himself by driving from the communications station to Wells' home within the time allotted. The case is being tried in Anchorage Federal Court.
    Wells, a civilian employee of the Coast Guard, is charged with murder in the deaths of retired Chief Petty Officer Richard Belisle and Petty Officer First Class James Hopkins.
    Wells claims he was late to work on April 12, 2012, because he had to change a soft tire. Security video recorded him passing the main Coast Guard base and returning 34 minutes later.
    Woods says a one-way trip from the CommSta to Wells' home can be made in about 13 minutes, which would have been enough time for Wells to commit the crime.

Coming up this week, fisheries in the far west may see less restrictions after another look at what’s causing the Steller sea lion decline in the Aleutians, they’re going to give seining for pollock a try around Kodiak, and what it’s like smack in the middle of the barely controlled frenzy that is a Sitka Sound sac roe herring opening, all coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska, KCAW’s Rachel Waldholz in Sitka and KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham.

Karluk and Ayakuli River King Salmon Limits Put In Place
Thursday, 10 April 2014

    The bag, possession and annual catch limit of king salmon on two Kodiak Island rivers have been cut by emergency order from the Department of Fish and Game.
    On the Karluk River, no king salmon may be possessed or retained and anglers may not use multiple hooks or bait. On the Ayakulik River fishermen have a possession and bag limit of one king salmon 20-inches or greater, though the annual limit is reduced to two fish per year.
    The emergency orders have been implemented because of expected low escapement again this year. The biological escapement goal – that is, the number of spawners needed for a sustainable stock – is between 3,000 and 6,000 kings in the Karluk River. It’s a goal that’s only been achieved twice since 2006.
    The B-E-G for the Ayakulik is between 4,000 and 7,000, which was not attained between 2006 and 2009, or last year.
    In the announcement, Fish and Game said it expects poor runs this year, and have some uncertainly over how quickly the stocks may recover. Increased fishing opportunity may be allowed by subsequent emergency order on both rivers if an in-season assessment shows the runs are stronger than expected or the B-E-Gs will be met.
    The king salmon limits go into effect on June 1st and are effective through July 25th.

Military Children to be Honored All Month

           April is month of the military child in Alaska – a recognition that doesn’t go unnoticed here in Kodiak. The island is home to the largest Coast Guard base in the U.S., but is also home for service men and women, and their families, who are enlisted in the Navy Seals and National Guard.
           Velma Vining is a child development services specialist on base and said the month of the military child is meant to honor the children of those families, who are often forced to move around frequently and live in single-parent homes when parents are deployed or on duty.
           “It’s really hard for kids to pick up and move away from their family, their friends and really close relationships that they’ve developed and it happens to them – it can happen ever six months to a couple years that they have to say goodbye to really close friends, and it can be hard for any age group. So these are the challenges that military kids have to face. And not only that, not only do they have to pick up and leave and change their home, they also have to say goodbye to a parent when they deploy.”
            April 15th was designated as a day to wear purple and show support for military children by Governor Sean Parnell. Vining said this is the third annual purple up for military kids observance.
            “There’s something special about the color purple. Purple symbolizes all the branches of the military because all of the different colors come together to make purple – green and blue and red for the Marines – they all come together and make purple. So it’s a visual way to show support for all military children.”

Shipyard May See Additional Rate Increase

           There could be some rate increases for the Kodiak shipyard in the coming months. The topic was the lone agenda item during the City Council’s work session last night.
           Last year the council, under the recommendation of the Port and Harbor Advisory Board, decided to increase rates at the shipyard by 20 percent. The goal was to help bring the shipyard out of the red financially, which is where it has been in previous years.
          This January the advisory board met and proposed another rate increase to help springboard the elimination of the shipyard’s budget deficit. That proposal included a 30 percent rate increase on certain fees, including the lift, block and launch. The board also suggested drafting some sort of reduced lay-day fees for long term work, with the hope that it would encourage more boat owners to keep their boats in the yard longer, and generate more money. 
           Nick Szabo chairs the advisory board and said shipyard finances are improving, but the additional rate increase is needed.
          “We thought let’s just do a 30 percent increase this year, and hopefully that will close the gap, and then we’ll just ride with that. So that’s basically what we’re recommending.”
