Congressional Fisheries Debate

Why is it important for Alaska’s Congressmen to know about fisheries? Because 85 percent of Alaska’s fish and crab catches come from federal waters, meaning three to 200 miles from shore.

 

Come see Alaska US Senator Mark Begich and his opponent Dan Sullivan face off over fish issues, followed by Congressman Don Young and his challenger Forrest Dunbar. Wednesday, October 1 from 7-9pm at the high school auditorium. Submit questions at the door and learn who’s best for Alaska’s fisheries in DC.

            The Quest Aircraft Company of Sandpoint, Idaho, has reached another milestone in its manufacture of the Kodiak, a powerful short take-off and landing bush plane. Last week, the Federal Aviation Administration presented Quest with its unrestricted production certificate for the aircraft, meaning the company can issue standard air-worthiness certificates to their buyers.

            The Kodiak is a 10-place single engine turboprop utility airplane, designed for use on unimproved runways and with floats. It's in the same class of aircraft as the Cessna Caravan, and is designed as a replacement for the discontinued de Havilland Beaver.

State will Fight Cruiseship Head Tax Suit

            The state's top lawyer says Alaska has every right to tax cruise-ship passengers.

            The industry filed a lawsuit last week challenging 46-dollars of the 50-dollar head tax.

            Attorney General Dan Sullivan says the Department of Law will fight the suit.

            The state collects about $50 million a year from the tax. Of that, four-dollars per person funds an environmental monitoring program, which the suit does NOT challenge. The rest goes to tourism-related projects and services.

            The industry says some of those projects do not support cruise ships, which breaks the law. Tax initiative authors criticize some of the spending, but say the tax is legal and should survive a court challenge.

            The city of Kodiak has already received 700-thousand dollars from the cruise ship head tax, and will use the money to improve pedestrian access from downtown to Pier Two, where cruise ships dock.

            The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services is conducting an H1N1 pandemic flu workshop in Kodiak today. The meeting will bring together key people and agencies from across the community including medical and public safety workers and leaders in all levels of government and education.

             Sally Abbott will conduct the all-day workshop; she's the director of the public health preparedness program for the state. Abbott explained that we are currently experiencing a pandemic which means that there is a new strain of flu around the world. The good news, she says, is that so far, the cases have been mild ones. She had words of praise for the work that's already been undertaken locally. Abbot says that Kodiak has a plan in place and now is the time to see how it will work. She conducts similar workshops all around the state.

Today's H1N1 flu workshop takes place in the Betty Springhill Hall on the Saint Paul church property at 3077 East Rezanof Drive. Anyone who's interested can attend.

            In their homecoming game Saturday, the Kodiak High School Bears faced the best team in Alaska, and though the defense shined, the Bears still fell 21-to-nothing against the Kenai Kardinals. Kenai has allowed only one score against them all year, a touchdown last week by the Homer Mariners.

            Saturday's game against Kenai was the last home game of the season. The Bears close out the regular season next week in Homer against the Mariners.
