            Today is International Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day, but many folks in Kodiak may not know what it is. That’s because only one in 25,000 people are diagnosed with it, statistically meaning less than half a person in Kodiak would have it. However, there is one.
            “It’s an extremely painful , chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve.”
            That’s Katie Anderson, who was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia in 2009.
            “I went undiagnosed for a long time. I went from doctor to doctor. In fact I even saw a neurologist, I had specialists look at my MRI and nothing showed up and it wasn’t until I was referred to a neurosurgeon  at University of Washington, where he found the mass of blood vessels in my brain.”

            Anderson said the condition affects the trigeminal nerve, which starts at your temple and branches into the forehead and eye area, along the cheek and sinus and toward your teeth and lower jaw.
            “If you have trigeminal neuralgia even a mild stimulation of your face, like brushing your teeth, putting on make up, may trigger a jolt of extremely, extremely excruciating pain.”

            The pain is so bad trigeminal neuralgia is often referred to as the suicide disease.  
            “In fact 25 percent of people still end up do committing suicide from the pain.”

Assembly Favors Road Improvements on CIP List

            Last night the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly passed its state legislative capital improvement projects priority list for the 2014 legislative session, but it was a different list than the assembly saw two weeks ago. During assembly discussion Assemblyman Mel Stephens moved to amend the list, bumping the number six item to number three, and letting the other items change accordingly.
            Number six asks the state for $5 million to put toward service area road paving and improvements.
            “I make that motion because I basically agree with the comments of Scott Arndt and Dennis Symmons concerning the priorities here. I think service area road and paving improvements should be a higher priority than they have been in the past. I think they benefit a greater portion of the people than some of the other items that were above number six on this list.”
            One of those items asks for $500,000 to look at extending public utilities to swampy acres. The project would be a public/private partnership and cater to the possibility that additional Coast Guard housing could be built in that area, which currently has no water or sewer lines. Stevens said he is against that project, which was originally number three on the CIP list.
            Assemblyman Aaron Griffin, however, said that should remain on the list because it is intended to help offset some of the housing problems here in Kodiak. He said the one complaint he hears consistently from Kodiak community members is the high cost of housing.

    A woman with roots in Kodiak has been appointed to the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges. Mary Hughes, a member of the University of Alaska Board of Regents, is the first Alaskan to serve on the national board, which provides guidance for regents around the country.
    Kodiak’s Pat Jacobs, the chair of the U of A Board of Regents said Hughes’ appointment will strengthen the Alaska organization’s relationship with the national board.
    Hughes was appointed to the U of A’s Board of Regents in 2002 by then-Governor Tony Knowles. She has also worked for U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski and was the City of Anchorage’s municipal attorney in the 1990s. She also hosted a weekly talk show on Anchorage radio for seven years.
    She lived in Kodiak as a child while her father practiced law here.

          It’s no secret that Alaska has become a popular setting for reality television. Many shows feature the last frontier’s extreme wilderness or dangerous jobs, but a new one will take a look at Alaska’s romantic side, or lack there of. Alaskan Women Looking for Love premieres on Sunday and features six Kodiak women who are fed up with dating on a remote island. Their solution: fly 5,000 miles south to Miami, Florida with the hopes of finding love. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs spoke with three of women to learn more about the latest Alaska-themed reality show.
