            In March 2008, the factory trawler Alaska Ranger sank in the Bering Sea, taking five men, including its skipper, to a watery grave. But 42 crewmen were saved in a dramatic nighttime rescue by the United States Coast Guard. California author Kalee Thompson recently published "Deadliest Sea: The Untold Story Behind the Greatest Rescue in Coast Guard History." Thompson appeared Tuesday on KMXT's Talk of the Rock.

            You can hear the entire Talk of the Rock interview with Kalee Thompson, the author of "Deadliest Sea" here .

            Little is left of Kodiak's huge military infrastructure from World War II.

            If you've walked in the woods and hills along the ocean-hugging roads, you know that there are any number of old concrete foundations that are buried under masses of berry bushes, alder and willows.

            Most of the foundations were built during the early ‘40s as America prepared for war. Kodiak became a major staging area for the North Pacific with a joint Navy - Army operations center located here.

            We get so used to seeing the foundations and the bunkers, but how have you wondered about the people who built those things? 

            One of the men who built Kodiak's bunkers is Ivan Fox. He was in Kodiak last week visiting friends in Uganik.

            Fox is into his 90s now, but he remembers coming to Kodiak as if it was yesterday. He talked with KMXT's Maggie Wall this past weekend while waiting for his flight back to Seattle.

             Both the Kodiak City Council and the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meet tonight. The council for its regular meeting and the assembly for a brief special meeting tacked onto tonight's work session.

            At its meeting, the city council will recognize and honor local seafood processing workers as the backbone of the Kodiak economy. The council is expected to hold a ceremony to approve a proclamation naming today (Thurs) "Seafood Processing Worker Day." Included in the event will be the passing out of t-shirts which have been specially printed up to honor processing workers.

            The borough assembly is meeting tonight as well. In what's expected to be a brief special meeting, assembly members will take up an ordinance to create a new Kodiak Workforce Regional Advisory Council. The council would define regional priorities for workforce development and help to train and educate local workers to fill future needs. Borough Mayor Jerome Selby has said the plan is to coordinate efforts of the high school, college and local employers to create opportunities such as the wind generator certification program planned for the college.

            The Kodiak City Council meets at 7:30 in the borough assembly chambers. While the assembly meets in the borough conference room downstairs for its special meeting and work session.

            KMXT will broadcast the city council meeting live.

            Kodiak voters largely followed the statewide trends in yesterday's Primary Election, voting for Sean Parnell, Ethan Berkowitz, Joe Miller and Scott McAdams. Kodiak also voted the same way the rest of the state did on the two propositions on the ballot. The local house and senate races were all uncontested. Voter turnout was under 18 percent, with just 1,827 ballots cast out of a voter base of 10,309.

            In District 36, which includes Kodiak Island and parts of the Lake and Peninsula Borough, unofficial results show Tea Party candidate Joe Miller received 632 votes in the closed Republican primary for U.S. Senate to incumbent Lisa Murkowski's 586. He's about 2,000 votes ahead of her statewide, with several thousand absentee and questioned ballots still to count. On the Democrat side, Kodiak went for Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams, with 181 votes.

            In the U.S. House race, incumbent Representative Don Young received 877 votes, with Democrat Harry Crawford picking up 397.

            Ethan Berkowitz easily won the Democratic gubernatorial primary vote in Kodiak, with 295. In the closed Republican election, Sean Parnell received 833 votes.

            Diane Benson also easily took Kodiak in the Democrat's primary for lieutenant governor, with 295 votes, while Mead Treadwell got 639 on the Republican side.

            On Ballot Measure One, the proposition that would ban municipalities and any organization receiving public funds from lobbying the state legislature, Kodiak residents soundly defeated it 1,104 votes to 660. On Measure Two, which would require parental notification when girls under 18 sought abortions, Kodiak voted 1,003 yes, to 782 no.


            In local races, all three were uncontested. Incumbent Senator Gary Stevens received 977 votes, incumbent Representative Alan Austerman 908, and Democratic challenger for state house, Andy Schroder got 364. Stevens, the current Senate president, will likely get a free ride back to Juneau, as there are no declared challengers. Austerman and political newcomer Andy Schroeder will face off in November.
