Alex Haley Crewmen Assist Three Adrift Mariners
Thursday, 07 August 2014

    The crew from the Kodiak-based Coast Guard cutter Alex Haley assisted three mariners late Tuesday after their skiff experienced outboard troubles near Nome.
    The Nome police department contacted the Alex Haley that they had lost contact with a 16-foot skiff that was disabled and adrift. The Coast Guardsmen launched a small boat and found the skiff being assisted by Good Samaritans. But after it got back underway, the skiff’s engine died again and it was taken under tow by the Alex Haley crew and escorted to the Nome small boat harbor. Wind and seas were light and no injuries were reported.
    The Alex Haley is in Northwest Arctic waters as part of Arctic Shield, the Coast Guard’s program to increase patrols in the far north as sea ice continues to recede and ship traffic increases.

Monday was the first egg-take of the season for the Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association. A group of volunteers and KRAA staff made the trek to Afognak Lake where they spent the day harvesting and fertilizing sockeye salmon eggs.
            Afognak Lake is about 20 minutes by air from Trident Basin, on Near Island. It takes two flights to bring the full crew of volunteers and KRAA staff out to the egg-take site. As the floatplane descends onto the water, small net pens become visible along the shoreline. They hold the brood stock – or parent stock – of sockeye salmon that will be used for the day’s egg take.

 The pens were built by KRAA crews that have been camping out on the lake for about ten days, getting things ready for Monday’s harvest.

           “The first day is spent ferrying our gear and everything over to the island and building our camp. And then the next day we come back over here and build our pen frames, put the nets on them and we go over to the creek and start dragging our seine through the water to catch fish.”
           That’s Drew Walter, the assistant manager for the Pillar Creek Hatchery. If you think of Monday’s egg-take like a factory, Walter would be the operations supervisor – the guy making sure everything is working right and going according to plan.
           The egg-take itself works like an assembly line, but comes with higher stakes – such as the quality of future fish runs – if any part of the process slips up.

    One of the fastest-growing sports in the nation is coming to Kodiak next week. “Rumble on the Rock” is a night of ten or more mixed martial arts bouts. And since it’s held in a fenced-in octagon and not held in a ring like boxing or professional wrestling, MMA is also known as cage fighting.
    KMXT’s Jay Barrett spoke with the local promoter for the Rumble on the Rock, DJ Marc Ignatio.

Jay Barrett/KMXT
    A Kodiak man has been appointed to a seat on the Alaska Commission on Aging. David Blacketer was appointed to fill the vacancy on the commission when Kodiak’s Iver Malutin died in June.
    Blacketer is a retiree from Safeway and serves on the board of directors of the Senior Citizens of Kodiak. Working with the Salvation Army, he is also an on-call chaplain for Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center.
    The Alaska Commission on Aging approves comprehensive statewide plans that identify concerns and needs of older Alaskans and prepares an annual analysis of the services that are provided to them.
