Kubiak Joins Northern Waters Task Force
Thursday, 02 September 2010

            A long-time Kodiak resident and environmentalist has been appointed to a newly created task force to consider northern water issues.

            Former school teacher and fisherman, charter vessel operator Dave Kubiak, was appointed to the Northern Waters Task Force by Senate President Gary Stevens. Stevens is also Kodiak's state senator who represents Kodiak and parts of the Kenai Peninsula.

            The 11-member task force was created by the legislature this year. It is comprised of local, state, and federal officials from Alaska's coast regions. The task force will facilitate the creation of a joint federal and state entity to coordinate U.S. and Alaska interests that result from the warming of Arctic waters.

            Areas expected to be addressed include fishing, transportation through the pole regions, national security issues, and resource development in the newly accessible Arctic regions.

            In a press release, House Speaker Mike Chenault said that creation of the task force allows the legislature to bring in regional leaders from all aspects of government to work with residents, businesses and interests in the Arctic region. It is a way to give all areas a voice and a stake in the outcome as various state and federal agencies bring forward policies addressing the newly opening waters.

            The group will hold public meetings in areas feeling impacts of warming waters first-hand and make recommendations to the legislature in January 2012.

            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly tonight (Thurs.) takes public hearing on a plan to create a new workforce council designed to create jobs and train people to work them.

            The proposed Kodiak Workforce Regional Advisory Council would be made up of local educators, business people and professional craftsmen, among others. The council would study trends and encourage job seekers to pursue a career in the areas expected to have openings in the future. In some cases the council would work with the high school and college to train new-comers in various fields.

            In other business, the assembly will consider a resolution adopting a three-year schedule for re-evaluating taxable property on the road system, and a five-year schedule for remote, rural properties.

            The Assembly will also consider in first reading an ordinance that changes the date for filing personal property tax returns.

            Tonight's assembly meeting begins at 7:30 in the assembly chambers. It will be broadcast live on KMXT.

            There's a new spot downtown to sit a spell and enjoy the day. Well, it's not totally new... In fact, it's quite old.

            But it's got some new landscaping and a bright new picnic bench and an arbor for flowers.

            We're talking about the Old Russian Well located between Cy's Sporting Goods and the Russian Heritage Inn.

            The tiny parcel nestled out of the way in the center of downtown got a facelift recently.

            The dead fin whale that floated into Kodiak on Sunday night may have died after being struck by a ship. Kodiak's marine mammal expert, Kate Wynn (win), of the University of Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program, said blunt-force trauma was the likely cause, but more study is needed.

             She, a veterinarian from Anchorage, and other scientists performed a necropsy on the whale Monday on Uski Island, right in front of downtown.

Kodiak Unemployment Fell in July
Tuesday, 31 August 2010

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            Kodiak's jobless rate fell slightly between June and July, matching the same trend found around the state.

            Statewide the unemployment rate fell in every region.

            The state's labor department says that traditionally more Alaskans find work in summer months. The state's workforce numbers peaked in July during six of the last 10 years.

            That's no surprise for us here in Kodiak where the increase in fishery activity plays a big role in our employment numbers.

            Locally, July's unemployment rate was 6.2 percent, down from 6.7 in June. In terms of people that means 28 more people were working in July than in June.

            Last year at this time the local jobless rate was just 5.8.

            Generally, July tends to be the month of lowest unemployment throughout the state as fisheries and tourism gives job seekers a big boost.
