    Work on a buried power cable at the intersection of Mission Road and Center Avenue has forced motorists to detour around it for several days now.
    According to KEA CEO Darron Scott, the first closure was to pull the cable out of its conduit, but they found a blockage inside, and were forced to dig up more of the road to reach the blocked spot.
    As soon as the conduit is repaired, KEA can replace the old cable with a new one.
    The underground cable originally failed two weeks ago, causing a brief outage in parts of downtown at the time.

    Until recently, Governor Sean Parnell, like his two Republican predecessors, and Governor Wally Hickel before them, used lawsuits, legislative initiatives and policies to dispute or diminish tribal authorities on several fronts. But now, the Parnell administration is taking a step toward acknowledging tribal sovereignty.

Homer Fishing Boat Damaged in Grounding
Thursday, 18 September 2014

    A fishing boat from Homer ran aground outside an Unalaska harbor Tuesday night after going the wrong way around a channel marker.
    The Ocean Ranger was heading into the Bobby Storrs Boat Harbor around 6 p.m. when it struck a reef. Unalaska Ports Director Peggy McLaughlin says the boat's crew probably misread their navigational charts.
    “They obviously didn’t follow the intention of the markers or they would
have missed the reef,” McLaughlin said.
    The vessel tore its hull and took on some water during the grounding. But no one was injured, and McLaughlin says the Coast Guard didn't find any environmental damage.
    The Ocean Ranger was able to get itself to a local salvage yard, where the boat's crew is working on repairing their damaged hull.
