Bears Sports Weekend Wrap
Monday, 14 October 2013

Volleyball
    As we all know, Kodiak’s bears are the larger cousins to grizzly bears, and that lesson was reiterated in Anchorage over the weekend when the Kodiak High School Bears defeated host Grace Christian in the championship match of the Lady Grizzlies Invitational Volleyball Tournament.
    The Bears were the only large school at the dozen-team tournament, and played like it, dropping only one game in 20 matches. Along the way, Isabelle Riian was named defensive MVP and Summer McKechnie was named most valuable setter. Megan Pyles, Hannah Wandersee and Carissa Cannon were named to the all-tournament team.
Football
    The football season came to a close for the Bears, falling 47-to-7 to the Kenai Kardinals in the first round of the medium-school playoffs.
Cross Country
    Two-time defending boys state champion Levi Thomet finally saw some competition, and the back of another rrunner, on the cross-country trails, taking second at the George Fox Invitational in Portland, Oregon. Finishing in 14-minutes 43-seconds, he was 10 seconds behind the winner, who set the fastest time in the nation this year. Thomet’s time, however, was the fastest ever set by a Kodiak High School runner. Meanwhile, Kenai’s two-time defending girls state champ Allie Ostrander crushed the competition with a winning time of 16-minutes 47.8-seconds. Both are ranked 17th nationally.

            A few weeks ago the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly approved a long awaited contract for animal control along the borough road system. The service will be shared with the city, so the contract needs to be approved by the City Council.
           Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said the contract really only deals with small animals, like dogs and cats, that can be taken to the Animal Shelter. He said there are a lot of larger animals on the island, like horses, and he’s been working on trying to figure out where those animals could be kept.
           “It’s the borough’s responsibility to find a place and I’ve been talking with both folks down at the rodeo grounds, as well as the Baptist Mission in having a location to take a horse, you know, if need be.”
            Cassidy said animal control is actually more about working with pet owners, and not so much about taking animals into custody.

            This weekend people will have a chance to say thank you to Coast Guard personnel in person during the annual We Applaud You appreciation dinner. The event is hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and Community Relations Director Summer Wood said this will be its 24th year. 
           “And this event provides the community an opportunity to recognize the Coast Guard personnel for their hard work and dedication in making Kodiak a safe place to live, work and raise their family.”

          Wood said it’s a buffet style dinner, featuring generously donated foods from Kodiak’s local restaurants.  
           “You know we have dinner and then we have a ceremony and we have testimony from some of the survivors that the Coast Guard has rescued and the mayors, Mayor Branson and Mayor Selby will also get up and speak, as long as the captains, Captain Rivera. So they both will get up and talk and then once the Coast Guard has been recognized, when it’s over, this year Feels Like Jupiter will be playing afterwards. So this is something new, this is the first year we’re doing it, we wanted to make it a really fun event.”
           The event, which starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday at the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center, will also feature a raffle for Coast Guard members. Wood said they are still accepting donations for those raffle prizes.
           Tickets cost $50 and are available at the Chamber of Commerce. Wood said they do have a limited amount so folks should call the Chamber and reserve them as soon as possible.

Football and Tennis in Playoffs, Volleyball in Anchorage
Friday, 11 October 2013

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    There’s a lighter than usual schedule for Kodiak High School athletics this weekend now that cross country is over and swimming and diving has a week free of competition.
Football
    The KHS football team made the small and medium school championship tournament, and are facing the Kenai Kardinals up on the peninsula in the first round tomorrow. The game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m., and can be heard live on KVOK. The Bears are the number-three seed in the medium school bracket and the Kardinals are number-two.
Volleyball
    The volleyball team is playing at the 12-team Grace Christian invite today and tomorrow. The Bears are the outliers in the field, as all the other teams come from smaller schools, such as Anchorage Christian, Barrow, Dillingham, Eielson, Homer, Houston, Monroe, Mt. Edgecumbe, Seward and Valdez. As usual, the Bears are streaming all their games live online; go to the team's U Stream  channel.
Tennis
    The Kodiak tennis team is going to the state tournament in Anchorage – a rare opportunity to play against opponents from other schools. That’s because no other school in the region has a tennis team, and the athletes challenge each other during the “regular season.”
Run the Rock
    Of course, here in Kodiak tomorrow there is the Seventh Annual KMXT Run the Rock, which includes a five-kilometer, 10-kilometer, half-marathon and full marathon, all the way out to the end of Antone Larson Bay Road. The event is rain-or-shine and there will be a tasty barbeque feast for participants afterwards. You can sign up here at the station, or online at race.kmxt.org. The five-k in particular is a family event, and you can sign up tomorrow at the Bear Valley Golf Course club house, the official race day headquarters of Run the Rock. The marathon starts on Near Island at 8 a.m., the 10-k and half-marathon both start at 10 a.m. at Bear Valley, with the 5-k beginning at 12:30 p.m.

City Makes Case For Composting, Land Transfer

           Things are seemingly moving ahead in a land transfer between the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly and City Council. Last night the two governing bodies discussed the matter during the assembly’s work session, specifically as it pertains to compost.
           The city hopes to build a better quality Class A composting facility on 2.36 acres of borough land, south of the landfill. Lesser quality Class B compost is already being made at the landfill. The compost would be made using biosolids, which have gone through the wastewater treatment plant and city staff stressed are very different from raw sewage.
          It’s no secret that composting has come under quite a bit of scrutiny, which is why City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski and other city representatives took a trip to Washington and Idaho and toured four composting facilities. Kniaziowski said the trip provided valuable insight to places that have been composting for decades, and what similar operations could look like in Kodiak. She said a facility in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, was the group’s favorite, and best resembled what they wanted Kodiak’s to look like in terms of operations.
