           Alaska’s oldest building has captured the interest of the Historic American Building Survey. Crews are in town this week to document the structure of the Baranov Museum, which was built by the Russian-American Company in the early 1800s.
           Tiffany Brunson is the director of the museum and said the Historic American Building Survey, also known as HABS, documents historical buildings around the country and is run by three different agencies, primarily the National Park Service.
           “So what they’ll do is they’re actually bringing digital building survey equipment to come out and survey the Barnov Museum – the entire structure inside and out, and create architectural drawings essentially for the Historic American Building Survey.”  
           Those drawings are then stored in the Library of Congress and will be available to the public.
            “It’s also of course available to us in the Park Service so that we have really good, really detailed architectural drawings of our building.”

Three Kodiak residents filed to run for the House District 32 seat. Kodiak City Councilman Rich Walker will face former Assemblywoman Louise Stutes and Assemblywoman Carol Austerman, daughter of current Representative Alan Austerman.
           The primary will be held on August 19 and the winner of those three will go on to face Cordova fisherman Jerry McCune in the November 4 general election.

'Run for Rescue' Focuses on Human Trafficking Awareness
Wednesday, 04 June 2014

           This weekend people will have a chance to help raise money for victims of human trafficking around the world. Run for Rescue is a 5k, 10k and half marathon race sponsored by the Kodiak Assembly Of God. The race raises funds for the organization Project Rescue. Sonia Walker is an associate pastor at Assembly of God and organizes the race, which is in its third year running.
           Walker said she became aware of Project Rescue more than four years ago, and was impressed by the work the organization does educating people about human trafficking and rescuing women and children that are victims of the industry. She decided to start the run for rescue race here in Kodiak to spread the same awareness and help raise money for the organization.
            “The past two years we’ve raised $500 each year that has gone directly to Project Rescue. And I just hope it keeps growing. My dream is that it will take root throughout the state and even the nation, so people all over the nation will be running at the same time, same day for this cause and bringing awareness to this and to help with the funding of rescuing women and children.”

           Kodiak’s commercial salmon fishery is set to kick off on Thursday. Kodiak Commercial Fisheries Management Biologist James Jackson said there will be a series of salmon openers starting at noon.
            “We’re going to open up the majority of the Northwest Kodiak District, also the areas around the hatchery for there’s some early chum production that guys like to fish for up there. And then also we have some small put and take fisheries up on Afognak – those are those Foul Bay, and Waterfall Bay special harvest areas. Those areas will open up until further notice. We also opened up for commercial fishing the Southeast Afognak Section of the Afognak District because Litnik has some good escapement. We basically have good early sockeye escapements almost everywhere on the island.”   
           Like last year, Jackson said this is an earlier than normal opener. He said they traditionally hold off on opening up any fishing periods until after June 9.
