Congressional Fisheries Debate

Why is it important for Alaska’s Congressmen to know about fisheries? Because 85 percent of Alaska’s fish and crab catches come from federal waters, meaning three to 200 miles from shore.

 

Come see Alaska US Senator Mark Begich and his opponent Dan Sullivan face off over fish issues, followed by Congressman Don Young and his challenger Forrest Dunbar. Wednesday, October 1 from 7-9pm at the high school auditorium. Submit questions at the door and learn who’s best for Alaska’s fisheries in DC.

Former Medical Examiner Testifies in CommSta Murder Trial
Thursday, 03 April 2014

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A former state medical examiner says the two men killed in 2012 at the Coast Guard's Kodiak Island Communication Station each suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
    Dr. Meredith Lann testified Thursday in the trial of 62-year-old James Wells, who is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Petty Officer James Hopkins and retired Chief Petty Officer Richard Belisle.
    Lann testified that Hopkins had been shot twice, and that Belisle was shot three times.
    Out of respect for family and friends of the victims, KMXT will not publish the graphic details from Lann's testimony, though they can be found elsewhere online.

    Because of federal budget concerns, two military amenities in Alaska that are also widely enjoyed by civilians are facing an uncertain future. Both are golf courses – the one at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage, and Bear Valley here in Kodiak.
    The courses will open this summer, but unless something changes, it will be their last season of operation. But members of the Kodiak Golfers Association are hoping that they can effect some change before the gates are locked for good. Al Shaw is the association’s president:
    “They generate most of their funds now under the congress passed years ago that (they) have to operate under profits that they generate. They don’t get a whole lot of money any more. It used to be deep pockets from the government – used to be just ‘here, let the troops have some fun,’” Shaw said. “It does cost a lot of money to operate both golf courses. The governments really aren’t set up to run the golf courses as a business, so it does tend to lose funds.”
    Shaw, who is a retired Army soldier and Coast Guard civilian employee, has been using the course since it was built in the 1980s.
    “I think it’s a very, very important function out there that does share with the Kodiak community and the Coast Guard. It keeps us close ties and everything else. But you know we’ve got a slate of options how we can run it,” he said. “I haven’t had a meeting yet with MWR people yet how we can keep the golf course open, and our Representative Alan Austerman suggested we set it as a concession to the Coast Guard, where we set up a board and the community will run the operation for the Coast Guard.”
    Steve O’Brien is an avid golfer and was the first course marshal at Bear Valley when he was the athletic director for the Coast Guard back in the 80s. He says the loss of the course would be widely felt through the community.

Beaufort Testifies About Finding Bodies at CommSta in 2012
Wednesday, 02 April 2014

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Coast Guardsman who discovered the bodies of two murdered men nearly two years ago says he thought at first they were playing a prank on him.
    Petty Officer Cody Beaufort testified Wednesday in the trial of James Wells, who's charged with shooting to death retired Coast Guardsman Richard Belisle and Petty Officer James Hopkins at Coast Guard Base Kodiak Communication Station.
    Prosecutors say Belisle used a security card to open the Rigger Shop, a satellite building at the communication station, at 7 a.m. April 12, 2012. Hopkins' truck pulled in eight minutes later.
    Beaufort arrived at about 7:30 and found Hopkins lying in a break room. He spoke to Hopkins but received no response.
    Beaufort found the body of Belisle in an office near Belisle's desk. Beaufort returned to the break room to phone for help.
    The trial will continue Thursday at Federal Court in Anchorage.

    The field is starting to get crowded in the race for House District 32. In an announcement posted online Friday, former Kodiak Island Borough Assemblywoman Louise Stutes stated her intentions to seek the seat currently held by Representative Alan Austerman.
    While HE has not declared his plans for re-election, Austerman’s daughter Carol announced last month her plans to run for his office, too.
    Stutes and Carol Austerman served on the assembly together for several years, and both describe themselves as fiscal conservatives, though Stutes says they weren’t always in agreement:
    “Just suffice it to say that we did not always vote in the same manner, fiscally, when we were both on the assembly at the same time.”
    Stutes left the assembly just over a year ago, and said the time seemed right to run for state house.
    “I had some discussion with Stormy, and it’s an opportune time. I have no children, no job, no children, nothing to hold me back, I can dedicate my full attention to that job. Stormy’s going to retire, and he said, ‘absolutely, I’m on board.’”
    As for her platform, she says it revolves around the sea, the same as the communities in District 32.
    “On thing that comes to mind immediately is the replacement of the Tusty. That’s a huge issue for southwest Alaska. That’s our highway, and we need to make sure that stays on track. That’s one of the many issues. Another issue is protecting our fisheries. That’s huge. Most all the communities of District 32 are affected by the fishing, or are fishing communities.
    The deadline for candidates to file for this year’s elections is June 2nd, and the primary will be held on August 19th.

 

*Editor's Note: Stutes intended to say she had no children at home.
