    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the latest Outside group to launch campaign ads in Alaska’s U.S. Senate race. The national business lobby has a 30-second television commercial running this week that slams incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Begich and supports one of his Republican challengers.
    “Mark Begich sided with Washington. Again. Dan Sullivan puts Alaska first”
    Almost immediately chambers of commerce around the state distanced themselves from the ads. Kodiak Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Trevor Brown reassured members in an e-mailed statement that the local organization has no affiliation with the U.S. Chamber, and remains independent and non-partisan.
    Anchorage Chamber President Andrew Halcro also issued a statement to say the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a separate organization.
    “We just wanted to notify our members that these ads, which are identified as produced by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, have no affiliation with the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce.”
     Likewise, the Alaska Chamber of Commerce says it does not endorse candidates for federal office. The Alaska Chamber, though, IS a member of the U.S. Chamber. President Rachael Petro says the U.S. group notified her of the ad but says the Alaska Chamber had no input.
    “We just have no opinion on this topic and we have nothing to do with those ads.”
    The older brother of Republican candidate Dan Sullivan, who is the beneficiary of the attack ads, sits on the board of directors of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Frank Sullivan, who lives in the family’s home state of Ohio, runs the company that makes Rust-Oleum.

           Next winter folks will have to pay a small fee to use the ice rink at Baranof Park. That was one of a handful of fee changes and additions the Kodiak City Council discussed during its regular meeting last week. City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said the fee will be similar, if not identical, to what people are charged at the swimming pool meaning $1-$2 depending on someone’s age.
            Kniaziowski said the rink is a very labor intensive facility that the city has to operate, and the suggested fees will help cover its operating costs.
            Another fee heading to the city this year is what Kniaziowski called a “visitor card” for the public library. 
            “Which would be you know, someone who doesn’t live here who would like access to the library, it would be a $10 fee for that.”
             She said the rates for the use of the library’s multipurpose room will be increasing to offset costs of wear and tear in the new building.
             The city council held a public hearing on the proposed fee changes during the regular meeting. While no one commented on the fees that were being suggested, Judi Kidder did suggest adding another to the list. She said some sort of enforcement fee in the community might help off set the cost of having to remove junk items from public property.
             “I think it’s a very important thing in light of the trash being dumped out in the community.”
             The council voted unanimously in favor of the fee changes.

            As the temperature hopefully starts warming up in the next few weeks, some folks might take to Kodiak’s roads on two wheels, rather than four. For those looking to get some biking in this year, be it recreationally, or simply to get from point A to point B, there will be a community bike clinic on Saturday at Bayside Fire Station.
           Sandra West is a certified bike instructor from the League of American Bicyclists and said Saturday’s workshop will help the island’s cycling enthusiasts in all matters of the sport.
            “Choosing a bike, fitting a bike to you, so that you are more comfortable riding your bike. We’re going to go over some basics mechanics and maintenance. We’re going to talk about how to change a tire, which is the most common maintenance need.”
             The clinic will also provide tips and tricks for handling bikes on different terrain, including roads with lots of pot holes – something we here in Kodiak are all too familiar with.
             “These little tricks probably mountain bikers know, but more than half of all bicycle crashes are due to pot holes or hazards on the road and these handling techniques are really cool for avoiding hazards on the road. Very helpful.”
             The clinic will also cover traffic rules for bikers, including how to change lanes on the road and make themselves more visible to vehicles.
             Tom Pogson is also a certified bike instructor and said the event costs $20 and will run from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
             “It’s a fabulous amount of knowledge and it’s exciting and fun and there’s some really cool maneuvers to do out in the parking lot and just some things that you never imagined you could do on a bike that are pretty easy if you know the right techniques.”
             The same course costs $50 in Anchorage, and West joked that folks are getting the Kodiak discount by participating on Saturday. People will need to bring their own bike, lunch, water, rain gear and a notepad if they’d like.
             A similar workshop will be held for kids 14-years-old and younger on May 31 in conjunction with the Bike Rodeo. West said those who participate on Saturday and then help out with the rodeo next month will get their $20 fee reimbursed.
