            Labor Day is just a week away and while we didn't have much of a summer season, there were some bright spots.

            One of those was the local tourism industry. While much of the country struggles with high unemployment and financial uncertainties, that doesn't seem to have affected the visitors coming to Kodiak.

            Janet Cunningham, with the Kodiak Island Convention and Visitor's Bureau told KMXT's Maggie Wall that tourism was strong this summer:

Library Closes for Roof Repair

            The A. Holmes Johnson Memorial Library will be closed this week for much needed roof repairs.

The closure is set for today (Mon) thru Thursday, and may be extended depending on how weather affects the project.

            The Kodiak City Council last month awarded the contract for the repairs of the library as well as a painting project to Brechan Enterprises. The city had estimated the package of projects to cost roughly $1.2 million. Brechan's bid came in at a little over $1 million.

            City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski explained the project to the council during the July 22nd regular council meeting.

            Library patrons are asked not to return books or other materials during the construction period. Instead, hold onto you things until the library reopens-perhaps on Friday-and return them then. The library plans to adjust the check-in procedure so that any materials due during construction will not be subject to an overdue fine if they are returned when the library reopens.

            For more information, you can call the library at 486-8680.

            Again this year, the Kodiak City Council approved its annual Capital Improvement Projects list early. It was unanimously passed at the Thursday night meeting. The CIP is a wish list of projects the city would like the state legislature to fund during the session starting in January.

            At the top of the list again this year is $3.5-million to help complete the ultra-violet secondary water treatment facility. The city has already spent one-and-a-quarter-million on designing the facility and on the UV "reactors," which kill and sterilize germs in the drinking water. Since the city has an open water source for its drinking water, it is mandated to have two purification systems in place.

            The total cost of the project is $9-million. Governor Sean Parnell vetoed the funding last year, even though the full legislature approved it.

            In March 2008, the factory trawler Alaska Ranger sank in the Bering Sea, taking five men, including its skipper, to a watery grave. But 42 crewmen were saved in a dramatic nighttime rescue by the United States Coast Guard. California author Kalee Thompson recently published "Deadliest Sea: The Untold Story Behind the Greatest Rescue in Coast Guard History." Thompson appeared Tuesday on KMXT's Talk of the Rock.
