    Time is running out in the filing period for this year’s Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend, and for at least two Chiniak residents, they’re glad they filed early. That’s because Scott and Theresa Bonney found out last week that their applications were not complete,
    Scott Bonney got an e-mail from the PFD Division saying he was not finished despite, getting confirmation from the state.
    “I call up the Department of Revenue e-mail to me, and it says this: ‘Scott Bonney, you have successfully filed a 2014 adult permanent fund dividend application.’ And I go, ‘What the heck?’ So I call them, and the person, a nice person, says, well, ya, you finished the application, but you did not send the signature page. And I go, why send this e-mail out then? And I think the thing that I saw the second time was there was a whole segue into the Department of Motor Vehicles thing. Now that DMV says you are you, then it  brings you back into the page where you can finally finish doing a real signature.”
    Bonney said his wife did not get a similar e-mail about the new electronic signature page, but they decided to check anyway, and sure enough, she needed to go through the extra step as well.
    “It didn’t seem like when first initial foray, back a month ago or so that we popped into ... I know I didn’t pop into that DMV portion of it. So it could have been me, I made a mistake. Got an e-mail saying I was done. I thought, ‘you know, I wonder if anybody else out there might have fallen into the same trap.’”
    The Bonney’s aren’t the only ones who’ve had issues with the electronic signature portion of the application process. Over 16,000 people had reported to the PFD division they’ve had problems.
    Some had frozen web browsers after getting a confirmation number, and others didn’t go past the Pick Click Give donation section, where the electronic signature page is found.
    If you feel like double-checking your dividend application, you can go and check on the status by logging back on at PFD.Alaska.gov.
    The Permanent Fund Dividend application period end on March 31st.

           Since its first film screening in October of last year, Media Action has been continuing to put on workshops. The nonprofit organization is based out of Kodiak, and its purpose is to empower youth through film, and help them create short documentaries about conflicts or topics in their communities.
           Media Action’s executive director, Marie Acemah, has recently become an independent consultant, but still plans to put on a three week film workshop with the Baranov Museum this summer that will focus on the Exxon Valdez oil spill.  The organization was very busy with film intensives this past fall, and KMXT’s news intern, Marina Cummiskey, was able to attend a few days of the workshops.

Second Time's a Charm for High School Technology Contract

           There will be some new computer hardware heading the high school as part of the addition and renovation project. During Thursday’s regular meeting the borough assembly approved a contract for about half a million dollars with Integrated Logic, of Anchorage, to purchase new technology equipment.
          This wasn’t the first time a technology contract for these materials was brought before the assembly. Back in August the assembly voted against a similar contract with Integrated Logic, but one that was twice the amount approved on Thursday. Assemblyman Aaron Griffin found substantial pricing flaws in the $978,876 contract that was before the assembly almost six months ago. He said many of the items listed in that contract were way over-priced, especially when compared to similar items through different companies.
          But as Acting Borough Manager Bill Roberts said on Thursday, the most recent contract is for much less.
          “The contract has been whittled down. It was redesigned and probably went for about half the cost it was originally stated at. And it was actually put out to bid; it was sole-sourced last time it was brought before you. It was put out to bid by the borough, we received two bids.”
           Integrated Logic’s bid of $500,870 was the low bidder of the two, and Roberts said borough staff recommended the assembly approve the contract.
           Assemblywoman Carol Austerman said she would support the new amount.
           “I just want to say thank you to staff, both borough staff and the school district staff, for going back to the drawing board on this project. I think it was one where assembly members were all pretty much disappointed with how it came in the first time with the idea of doing it sole-sourced at nearly double this amount. So I just want to say that I appreciate that and I’m glad that we were able to save the borough this kind of money.”
            Austerman’s fellow assembly members agreed and the contract was approved unanimously.
