    Kodiak senior Levi Thomet came in second at the National Northwest Regional cross-country races at Eagle Island State Park in Eagle, Idaho, on Saturday, as first reported by the Alaska Dispatch News.

    Thomet was almost 25 seconds off the winning pace set by Spokane's Tanner Anderson, who won with a time of 15 minutes 54.6 seconds on a snowy five-kilometer course.

    Kenai’s Allie Ostrander Ostrander, a senior from Kenai who was the top-ranked runner in the nation, finished less than four seconds behind Portland's Ella Donaghu, who won in 18 minutes, 55.8 seconds.

    Thomet and Ostrander are both three-time state cross-country champions.

Bears 5th at State Volleyball Tourney
Monday, 17 November 2014

    The Kodiak High School Bears volleyball team lost their opening round game in the class 4-A state championships while they were somewhere on the Seward Highway. After their Wednesday flight was canceled, the team hopped on the state ferry Tustumena for Homer and a connection to the road system. But in the best of conditions, it's still a four- to five-hour drive from there to Anchorage.

    So the Bears forfeited their first game against South Anchorage – who would go on to win the tournament and state championship.

    Being dropped into the losers bracket before they even showed up didn't seem to faze the Bears, as they downed West Valley three games to two. East Anchorage, however, then swept the Bears three games to none, bouncing Kodiak from the tournament.

    Isabelle Riina was named to the all-tournament team.

Parnell Concedes
Monday, 17 November 2014

Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell has conceded in the state’s gubernatorial race, issuing a statement a day after independent candidate Bill Walker was declared the winner.

Parnell wrote on Facebook Saturday that he met with Walker Saturday morning, offering him office space to help with the transition.

Walker grabbed a slim lead on election night, but the race was too close to call while absentee and questioned voters were counted this week. Walker won Friday when it became evident that Parnell could not overcome Walker’s lead.

Parnell has served as governor since July 2009, when Sarah Palin resigned. He won election in his own right in 2010.

Walker, an attorney and former mayor of Valdez, is the first candidate unaffiliated with a party to be elected governor since statehood. He is scheduled to be sworn in on Dec. 1.

Sea Lions Cause Year-Long Delay on Pier I

          Construction on Pier I has come to a complete halt, and isn’t expected to continue for a year. During last night’s City Council regular meeting, City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski shared news from the State Department of Transportation, which is leading the pier replacement project.
          “They had to halt it while they seek a permit modification. With the presence of sea lions – who are endangered sea mammals – they can’t be within 350 meters of the construction site and they literally are always there. They measured one period of time when it was four hours in the middle of the night when there were no detectable sea lions there.”   
           Kniaziowski said the delay will definitely increase costs for the project, but the DOT has said the city will not be responsible for those overruns. She said a new permit, or even a revised permit, could take anywhere from 6 to 18 months before it’s issued from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
           Kniaziowski said DOT couldn’t answer why this oversight occurred, but said they will work to return the dock to operating condition so it can be utilized by the State Ferry Tustumena and fishing vessels, as needed.
