Eight from Air Station Kodiak to Recieve Prestigious Award

            Eight Alaska-based Coast Guardsmen from Air Station Kodiak will be awarded the American Helicopter Society's prestigious William J. Kossler Award at the American Helicopter Society Forum in Phoenix in May for saving the lives of seven commercial fishermen during two different rescues in 2009.
             Commander Shawn Tripp, Lieutenant. David McCown, flight mechanic Dennis Dewinter and rescue swimmer Eric Stoecker are being recognized for their rescue of two men from the fishing vessel American Way, grounded on Aghiyuk Island on January 4, 2009.
             The crew battled 500-foot ceilings, three-mile visibility, driving snow, and zero degree temperatures to rescue the stranded fishermen. They were safely hoisted from a narrow strip of beach next to a 300-foot vertical cliff in steady 58 mph winds.
             And in a grounding on Saint Paul Island in March a year ago, Lieutenant John Bartel, Lieutenant Commander Craig Neubecker, flight mechanic Chad Redmond, and rescue swimmer Alexis Torres, rescued five crewmembers from the fishing vessel Mar-Gun.
             The men were hoisted in visibility of a half mile, with a 200 foot ceiling, and blowing snow, as waves rocked the vessel and crashed over its decks.
             The Captain William J. Kossler Award is given for achievement in practical application or operation of rotary wing aircraft. This program was initiated in 1944 and over the years has paid tribute to the leaders in the vertical flight industry.

            If it seemed busier at the Kodiak ferry dock last year, it wasn't your imagination. Folks getting off the Tustumena and Kennicott in Kodiak went up nine percent, while those getting on went up over 11 percent. Those figures were included in the 2009 Annual Traffic Volume Report released on Friday.
             Jim Beedle is the Department of Transportation's deputy commissioner for the Alaska Marine Highway System. He says the increase in Kodiak traffic was surprising even to him:

In the spring a gardener's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of planting
Friday, 19 March 2010

            Saturday is officially the first day of spring for 2010. Here in the northern hemisphere, spring officially begins when the sun moves north across the equator.

            For some, the spring equinox means planting time which is why Sustainable Kodiak is hosting a gardening workshop at Kodiak College tonight.

            Conducting the workshop is Marion Owen. She offered a preview of some of the topics she'll cover at tonight's workshop.

            Owen teaches organic gardening and might be described as obsessed when it comes to her pursuit of knowledge about growing things. But, she says, that mindset is not a requirement for gardening.

            Friday night's workshop is free and open to everyone. It begins at 6:30 in room 130 of the Benny Benson building at Kodiak College.

Storm-Damaged Roads to be Repaired
Friday, 19 March 2010

            Repairs to portions of Rezanof Drive and the Chiniak Highway are planned for this summer. The work is a result of the damage caused by flooding and landslides in October and November of 2009.

            Five portions of the road will be repaired by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.

            Because the work falls under the scope of the National Historic Preservation Act as well as wetland and floodplain protections, the D-O-T is soliciting comments on the proposed repairs.

The repairs include adding riprap at milepost five-point-five to repair erosion around the culvert at Devil's Creek. Riprap will also be added to the streambed at milepost nine-point-six of Rezanof Drive to improve fish passage. At milepost 10-point-nine, the culvert at Paramanoff Creek will be upgraded from six feet to eight feet in diameter. On the Chiniak Highway, some debris will be excavated and riprap will be added to stabilize the road embankment at milepost six-point-two and 12-point-four.

Work will also be conducted in several fish streams. A small amount of wetland fill may be required at milepost 10-point-9 of Rezanof Drive where an existing cross culvert will be replaced. Some vegetation may be cleared to provide equipment access.

Public comments and recommendations for the project will be accepted by D-O-T until April 1st.

The work is expected to begin this summer and traffic delays or temporary closures are likely.
