            A 46-year-old man was lifted from a fishing boat by the Coast Guard yesterday (Tuesday) morning, 75 miles southwest of Kodiak City in Moser Bay after it was reported that he was severely dehydrated.

            A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Kodiak medevac'd Brett Miller off the 60-foot fishing vessel Outer Limits after the boat's skipper reported that Miller was unable to eat or drink.

            The Coast Guard District 17 command center in Juneau diverted a Jayhawk training flight in the area of Moser Bay to pick up Miller about a half-hour later, hoisting him aboard just after 12 noon.

            Jayhawk pilot Jason Dorval said reduced visibility to and from Moser Bay was the most challenging part of the mission, but that once they were on-scene, the rescue went smoothly despite the 100-foot ceiling.

            The helicopter returned to Kodiak at 1:50 p.m. and transferred Miller to local emergency medical services personnel.

First Swine Flu Vaccines Given in Kodiak
Wednesday, 14 October 2009

            The first immunizations against Swine Flu were given Monday here in Kodiak. The State of Alaska Public Health Center administered the 90 doses to preschool kids, age 2-to-4 on Monday afternoon.

            The 90 nasal-mist doses were part of the first wave of Swine Flu vaccines to reach Alaska. The state limited the first batch to preschoolers, aged two-to-four-years, because they are at greater risk of needing hospitalization from the Swine Flu.

            The second batch of Swine Flu vaccine for Alaska arrived in the state yesterday, according to Dawnell Smith of the State Department of Health and Social Services. Until more doses are available, they will be administered only to preschoolers, pregnant women, those who care for children too young to receive the vaccine and adults with underlying health concerns that might be complicated by the flu, as well as health care workers.

            The state is no longer keeping track of all cases of the Swine Flu, and estimate that thousands of Alaskans have already contracted it, with just over 100 needing hospitalization. Five Alaskans are confirmed dead from the Swine Flu, also known as H-1-N-1 Flu.

            State health officials think Swine Flu infections will peak earlier than the regular seasonal flu, which in Alaska spikes in February.

            The distribution of 466-million dollars in Exxon Valdez Oil Spill interest payments has been delayed. Fishermen and other plaintiffs have been waiting six weeks for Judge H. Russel Holland to sign the order authorizing the payments.

            Frank Mullen, a Homer fisherman and financial advisor said he discovered Tuesday that Holland has an issue with a stipulation in the order having to do with assignments from processors and has asked for clarification. He said plaintiffs' attorneys are expected to file a clarification soon, and after that, Holland will be able to sign the order of distribution for the interest payments.

            The tropical storm that battered Kodiak on Friday and caused a score of mudslides also damaged the Bear Valley Golf Course to the point where it is not only closing for the season, but some of the links will have to be redesigned when it opens next spring.

            Art Bors in the course manager. He says the creek at the east end of the golf course apparently dammed up from mud and landslides, redirecting water across the course.

            While numerous mudslides closed the Chiniak Highway between the Coast Guard Base and the fairgrounds, the Friday storm was a little more kind inside Kodiak City limits.

            Mark Kozak is the public works director for the city, where mudslides in the past have damaged and even destroyed homes.
