          Yesterday was Veteran’s Day, and while services for Vets have been offered locally for some time, soon they will be able to access their very own clinic. A spokeswoman from Kodiak Area Native Association said construction is underway for a new Veteran’s Affairs Clinic on the corner of Mill Bay and Benny Benson Road. She said KANA purchased the property specifically for the clinic and expects to have it completed sometime in March.
          In the meantime, she emphasized that KANA does offer services for Vets, both Native and non-Native, so anyone interested should contact them to learn more about what is offered.
           As for the new clinic, she said some staff will be transferred over from current KANA offices, but they will likely also undergo a new hiring process, too.

Chamber Warns of Phone Scams
Wednesday, 12 November 2014

    The Kodiak Chamber of Commerce Monday sent an alert to its members warning them of a recent telephone scam they've become aware of.

    Members have received calls from someone identifying themselves as from “Merchant Account Services,” wanting to discuss over-billing. They then ask the business to fax them statements so they can discuss their account. Doing so could expose a company's private account details, opening them up to fraud.

    The chamber says the numbers have been coming from the 214 and 866 area codes, and recommends businesses not answer or hang up on the callers and then notify their bank to ensure their accounts are secure.

Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Jay Barrett/KMXT

    Recognizing illegal drugs or paraphernalia is not always easy for many, especially if they've not been exposed to it. Because of that, friends or loved ones who may be abusing a drugs could be doing it without being immediately noticed.

    As a result, an ad hoc coalition of local organizations will be offering training at a forum scheduled for next week. The Native Village of Afognak, KANA, Healthy Tomorrows, Celebrate Recovery, the school district and Kodiak Police Department have joined together for the event. The organizations will inform the attendees on resources available in Kodiak they offer.

    The KPD will will have its new K-9 officer present to do a drug-sniffing demonstration, and will also make a presentation that simulates driving under the influence. It's called the “Drunk Buster.” You'll have to attend to get the full experience.

    The community forum is open to youth and adults. It'll be held on November 20th at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium Drama Pod from 6:30 to 8 p.m. There'll be pizza provided by Big Al's and door prizes.

          Kodiak’s Fisheries Work Group is honing in on a plan of attack for fish politics this week. In October the North Pacific Fishery Management Council moved forward with a proposal for managing Gulf of Alaska trawl bycatch. The hope is to analyze a set of alternatives before the next council meeting in April, and folks in Kodiak are working to weigh in on that.
          Assemblywoman Chris Lynch sits on the fisheries work group and said there will be a meeting on Wednesday morning to discuss the council’s management actions.
         “So we’re working on developing a list of key points for discussion. And we’re going to start to present that stuff this coming week. And it’s merely a starting point for how the community wants us to move forward. What now the alternatives are – now we need to decide what’s best for the community as part of those alternatives and what we want our say – how we want the council to review all this.”

Bears Second in Title Chase, but Hammer Record Book
Monday, 10 November 2014
Jay Barrett/KMXT
Though the Kodiak squads fell just short of state team titles, there were plenty individual records set by the Bears at the State Swimming and Diving Championship in Anchorage over the weekend.
Kodiak swimmers set six state records on their way to helping both the boys and girls to second place finishes. 
Senior Ila Hughes finished the 50 yard freestyle in 23.2 seconds and the 100 freestyle in 50.51 seconds; 
Fellow senior Tahna Lindquist twice broke the record in the 200 individual medley – a record she's owned for two years – first in Friday's preliminarys and then lowering her own time on Saturday to 2-minutes 3.61 seconds. She also set the state record in the 500 freestyle at 4-minutes 53-.5 seconds.
Freshman Talon Lindquist set new marks in two races; 1-minute 52-seconds in the 200 individual medley and 51.23 seconds in the 100 backstroke.
Tahna, who will be swimming for the University of Hawaii next year, was named the Outstanding Girls Swimmer.
Kodiak tied with Dimond with 87 points, good for second to the Juneau girls who scored an even 100.
The Kodiak boys, with 96 points, were second to Dimond's 110. Service was a distant third.
We've got full results after the jump.
