Only Two Contested Races in Today's Election
Tuesday, 01 October 2013

            Kodiak voters won’t need to make too many decisions at the polls this year. There are only two contested races on the ballot and one proposition.
           Three candidates are vying for two three year seats on the Borough Assembly this year. Frank Peterson Jr. and Dennis Symmons have thrown their name in the hat and incumbent Carol Austerman is seeking re-election.
           The other contested race will be for the Monashka Bay Road Service Area Board. Darlene Turner, Tom Lance and Randy Spivey are all in the running for two three year seats.
           Voters will also decide on whether or not to approve proposition one, which asks if an ordinance regarding conflict of interest should be added to borough code. It would prevent those in public office from being employed by the borough, or entering into personal service contracts with the borough.
           Beyond that, most races this year are already decided, with just enough folks running for empty seats, or in one case, not enough.

Cordova Forward Deployment Wraps Up for Jayhawk Crews
Monday, 30 September 2013

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    The forward-deployment of Air Station Kodiak helicopters to Cordova for the summer is over for another year. The last MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and its crew were scheduled to return to Kodiak yesterday.
    Coast Guard spokesman Grant DeVuyst said the crews flew 26 cases since May 1st, with 11 rescues.
    Air Station Kodiak sends crews to Cordova every summer because of the increase in vessel traffic during the salmon season, much in the same way it sends them to St. Paul for crabbing in the Bering Sea.
    Lt. Francis Wolfe, a pilot with Air Station Kodiak, said the forward operating base reduces the distance aircrews have to travel when responding to emergencies in the Gulf of Alaska and Prince William Sound.

            It’s been a handful of years since animal control service was offered along the borough road system but it could be reinstated as early as this week.
            During last week’s work session the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly discussed the animal control contract that will be voted on during Thursday’s regular meeting. Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said the contract is similar to the one the borough had in the past, meaning it will share the animal control service with the city of Kodiak. 
           “This contract is structured to where we split costs. Those costs involve the hiring of community service officers, the hiring and training of those officers, the truck and it’s maintenance, insurance, expenses to the Humane Society for operating the animal shelter.”
           Cassidy said the new contract includes two officers and the goal is to patrol a longer portion of time than in the past.

Good Weekend for KHS Bears Athletics
Monday, 30 September 2013

    It was another successful sports weekend for Kodiak High School athletes.
Cross Country
    Levi Thomet and the boys cross country team won the Region III title again. It’s the 12th time in a row for the team, the second in a row for Thomet, and the eighth consecutive individual title for a Kodiak runner. The regionals were held on Saturday in Seward, with the Kodiak boys scoring 42 points to beat Colony, Kenai, Wasilla and Palmer. Thomet’s time was 16 minutes 7-seconds. He and the boys squad have qualified for the state championship in Anchorage this weekend. Zoe Bigley, who placed 14th in the girls race, also qualified for state.
Swimming
    Also on the Kenai Peninsula, the Kodiak swimmers had a near-hegemony at the So-Hi Pentathlon in Soldotna. A pentathlon includes five races each swimmer competes in, with the winner decided by the lowest aggregate time. Tahna Lindquist and Ila Hughes finished one-two, with just 12-one-hundreths of a second separating the two. The Kodiak girls took the team title as well, with a score of 47, beating host Soldotna’s 41. Palmer, Seward and Colony rounded out the top five.
    The Kodiak boys easily won their title, with 69 points to Soldotna’s 39, but Colony’s Alex Kessler edged out Kodiak’s swimmers to take the individual title. Dyton Schauff, in second place, was the top Bear, just three seconds off the pace, with Nicholas Lincoln in third, two seconds behind. Blake James was fifth, just two more seconds behind.
Football
    On the gridiron, the Bears secured a spot in the playoffs with a 37-to-7 conference win over Houston. Skyview will be in town this week to finish up the regular season.
Volleyball
    At the West Spiketacular volleyball tournament, the Bears lost the rubber game in the final match against two-time defending state champion Dimond to take second place. Kodiak played 20 matches over two days, and took the Lynx to three games in the finale. The Bears won the first game 25-20, but fell 17-25 and 15-17 in the last two. Twenty other teams from all over Alaska competed.
    The next contest for the Bears is here at home against the Colony Knights Friday and Saturday.

    We have individual results from running and swimming after the jump.

    Last night Kodiak City Councilmen Terry Haines and Charlie Davidson shared their impressions of industrial composting operations in Idaho and Washington State. The pair, along with the city manager and others toured several facilities earlier this month.
    Haines said he was more convinced than ever that composting the city’s bio-solids, or sludge left over from the sewer treatment process, is the right option for the city to select:
    “What I saw completely convinced me that it is absolutely the way for us to go, and I’m very glad we have this option. I’m already convinced over the last couple year that financially, fiscally, it’s the only responsible way for us to go, because otherwise we wouldn’t be serving the ratepayers and the citizens. We’d be insuring they’d be paying more and more, and not be assured of a sustainable way to treat our wastewater for the future. This is the only option.”
    The group viewed the operations at several different kinds of composting facilities, and Haines said the first-hand view was valuable:
