            The Kodiak Island Borough School District is reporting a large increase in its absentee rates. The school district has asked parents of children with flu symptoms to keep their children at home in order to slow the spread of illness and parents seem to be heeding the advice.

Most of the district schools in Kodiak are reporting 20 percent of the kids absent at each site. Kodiak Middle School has a higher rate of students out; around 37 percent. Close to 200 middle school students were absent both on Monday and Tuesday.

Kalakala May Move Again
Tuesday, 03 November 2009

091103.kalakala.jpgJay Barrett/KMXT

            The retired Washington State Ferry Kalakala, which spent nearly 30-years on the beach in Kodiak as a cannery, may be moving again.

            The 276-foot streamliner left Kodiak more than 10 years ago, but has bounced around Puget Sound and still has not found a permanent home in Washington State.

            Now owner Steve Rodrigues wants to make it the centerpiece for a new waterfront development in Port Angeles, on Washington's Olympic Peninsula.

            He told the Peninsula Daily News that the development would include a marina, stores, condos, apartments, and a tourist "welcome center." The Kalakala would be remodeled into a floating restaurant and special-events center. It's a plan similar to one he proposed for the ship in Seattle and Tacoma, where the Kalakala has been anchored for five years.

            The city of Port Angeles appears receptive to the plan, but the city manager there says the conversations have been very general in nature. The plan Rodrigues has is to buy 400-feet of shoreline frontage and an acre of uplands. He's hoping for a grant from the National Parks Service in the amount of 700,000 dollars, but that's still a drop in the bucket compared to the 11-million-dollar price tag for renovations, plus another 2-million for the waterfront improvements.

            After plying the waters of Puget Sound as a ferry from 1935 to 1967, it processed crab out of Dutch Harbor before being relocated on the beach of Gibson Cove in Kodiak. Peter Bevis bought the derelict ship from the city of Kodiak and moved it to Seattle in 1998. Rodrigues, the current owner, bought the Kalakala at auction in 2003. The art deco ship was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 2006.

Kodiak Bears Take Region Swimming Titles
Tuesday, 03 November 2009

            The Kodiak High School Bears swept the Region Three swimming and diving championships at Skyview High School in Soldotna over the weekend. The girls racked up 115 points, with the boys scoring an even 100.

            Freshman Jori Lindquist broke the region record in the 200 freestyle, with a time under two-minutes, while junior Celeste Beck-Goodell set a new record in the 500 freestyle. Meanwhile, senior Scott Wandersee broke a 1994 record from the diving board.

            Last year the Kodiak girls won all 11 of the events at regions. They followed that up with seven this year. Their first-place victory was 58 points better than second-place Soldotna. Homer was third, with Kenai and Wasilla tying for fourth. It's the third straight region title for the Kodiak girls.

            The boys were 43 points better than runner-up Wasilla. Soldotna was third, followed by Homer and Colony. It's the boys' fifth region crown in seven years.

            Kodiak coach John Lindquist told the Peninsula Clarion that he credits the Bears' performance to the fact that most of his team swims and trains year-round.

            The state swimming and diving championships will begin Friday at Anchorage's Bartlett High School.
