            A former Kodiak senator has passed away. Kathryn Poland died in Anchorage last week at the age of 90. Governor Sean Parnell has ordered state flags be lowered in her honor.

            Poland was appointed to the State Senate on March 6, 1970, to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of her husband Bill due to health reasons. She continued to serve in the Senate until 1979, representing the Kodiak-Aleutian District.

            In 1978, Poland, a Democrat, ran unsuccessfully for lieutenant governor. She served as director of Commercial Fisheries Division from 1981 until 1983.

            Poland is survived by her husband, George Silides; son, Pat Poland; daughters, Kathleen Carlsen and Shannon Anderson; five stepchildren; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

            State flags will be raised to full-staff Friday morning.

            The city of Kodiak recently renewed its contract with the operator of the boat lift in Saint Herman Harbor. Bill Feda, whose full time job is at Fuller's Boat Yard, was given a two-year contract to run the 660-ton large boat lift. Year one of the contract pays him $90 per hour, and year two, the fee increases to $100 per hour. 

            Councilman John Whiddon, who works on the waterfront, praised Feda's work since the giant machine went into service last year.

            There will be a new, though familiar, face on the Kodiak City Council by the end of October. The filing deadline closed on Friday.

             Kodiak Island Borough Assemblywoman Pat Branson is running unopposed for the one-year term open on the Kodiak City Council.  She is not seeking re-election to the assembly. The one-year seat is open after the resignation of Paul Smith, two years into his term. Councilwoman Mary Monroe, who is filling the seat temporarily, is not running for election to a full term.

            Meanwhile, there is a three-way race for the two, three-year terms on the council, and another familiar face is one of the candidates. Three-year incumbent Terry Haines, and one-year incumbent John Whiddon are facing a challenge by former long-time councilman Charlie Davidson. The top-two vote getters in the October 5th municipal election will be seated.

Mixed Results for Bears in Big Sports Weekend at Home

            The play off outlook for the Kodiak High School Bears football team took a hit Saturday at Baranov Park at the hands of the Homer Mariners. In the first game of the second half of the season, Kodiak now goes to 0-and-2 in the Northern Lights Conference, after falling to the Mariners 28-to-6.

            This upcoming Saturday, the Bears are on the road against the defending state champion Kenai Kardinals, and then play the homecoming game against Houston in week seven, before wrapping up the regular season on the road in Soldotna against the Skyview Panthers.

            Like the Homer contest, the last three games are in the conference, which will determine the Bears' playoff fate. Only first, second and third places are guaranteed a spot in the play-offs, as the champion of the new Southeast Conference will get the spot of the fourth place team with the worst record in either the Northern Lights or Great Land conference. The Bears have been to the play-offs for five consecutive years, including three appearances in the state championship game. Kodiak is 0-and-2 in the NLC and are 2-and-3 overall on the season.


            In other Kodiak High School sports, Jaymie Bethea continues to burn up the cross country course, clocking a time of 19-minutes 25-seconds Friday on the 5-kilometer track at Fort Abercrombie in a meet with Port Lions, Anchorage Christian and Grace Christian. Grace won the meet by eight points, however, 30 to 38 over the Bears. Port Lions was third with 83-points to ACS' 87.

            On the boys' side, Nathan Deer ran a 16-48 as Kodiak won handily, putting five runners in the top 10 and winning with 16 points to Grace's 36 and ACS' 83.


             In swimming and diving, Kodiak split with the Kardinals here at home. The girls won 139-to-46 Friday and 131-to-55 Saturday. The Kodiak boys were edged on Friday by two-points, 80-to-78, and beat again on Saturday, 83-to-75.


            In volleyball, also at home, the Bears dropped three to the Palmer Moose.
