We have red and pink forecasts from opposite sides of the state; under-size crab and secret identities discovered in Unalaska, and some Fukushima radiation is detected for the first time on the West Coast. All that, and remembering a towing figure in Alaska seafood, coming up, on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KDLG's Dave Bendinger in Dillingham, KFSK's Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg, KUCB's Annie Ropeik AND Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska, and Northwest News Network's Tom Banse in Seattle.

            Earlier this month, KMXT told you about the Alutiiq Museum’s two-year skin sewing project, which culminated in a life-size, wearable parka. The parka has since been unveiled to the public, but it won’t be on display at the museum for a few weeks. That’s because it must first go through cold storage – a process all too common in museums to help prevent bugs and other pests from damaging organic materials in a collection. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs has more on the process and why it’s an important step in preserving history.

Fatal Stabbing Called an Accident by Man Charged in Death
Tuesday, 18 November 2014

    One Kodiak man is dead and another under arrest after after a stabbing incident on Sunday.

    Just before 3 p.m. the Kodiak Police Department received a 911 call about a stabbing at a residence on Ole Johnson Avenue. Upon arriving, according to the KPD, officers found 59-year-old Dennis Fathke on the floor and not breathing. Despite CPR from police and then EMTs, Fathke succumbed to his wound in the emergency room at Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center.

    Police spoke with 44-year-old Teila Tofelogo, who admitted accidentally stabbing Fathke.

Tofelogo told the police that he and Fathke had been having a laugh over the former's “ninja” moves with a 12-inch curved-blade knife. Tofelogo told police that at one point Fathke stood up behind him. Without knowing Fathke was there, Tofelogo spun around and the knife went through his friend's arm and into his left lung.

    Tofelogo said he pulled the knife out and called 911 to report the incident. KPD arrested him on manslaughter and assault charges.

It was a rough couple of days for a landing craft in Kodiak Island waters. Sunday evening the 152-foot landing craft Polar Bear went aground on Gull Island at the west end of Near Island. But that was just the beginning of the Polar Bear's troubles, and only the first time it would go aground near downtown Kodiak.
At about 8 o'clock Sunday night, the Kodiak Police Department received a 911 call from Jeffrey Barrowcliff, a 25-year-old crewman on vessel. He said his skipper was intoxicated and the Polar Bear was aground near St. Herman Harbor.
The Kodiak Harbormaster Office and some police officers boarded the vessel and found the master of the ship, Edward Dyer, intoxicated and reportedly not yet aware that he had run aground. The 50-year-old Dyer was arrested and charged with DUI, reckless endangerment and assault.
The U.S. Coast Guard's Kodiak Marine Safety Detachment inspected the vessel on Monday and found no fuel had leaked from the Polar Bear.
After the MSD released the vessel, it's owner came to take possession of the craft, and he made it almost all the way through the channel in front of town, before running aground on the east end of Near Island.
The Polar Bear had been refloated, and according to the Coast Guard, is safely anchored up. 
A second inspection by the MSD was expected today (Tuesday).

Horizon Sale Shouldn't Affect Pier III
Tuesday, 18 November 2014

Brianna Gibbs/KMXT

           Last week, KMXT told you about the domestic shipping company, Horizon Lines, breaking up and merging with other companies.  Horizon will sell off its Alaska Routes, which include regular service between Tacoma, Anchorage, Unalaska and Kodiak, to Matson, Inc.
            During Thursday’s City Council meeting, Councilman John Whiddon asked City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski if that merger will affect the recent contract negotiated between the city and Horizon Lines. 
           “No, I do not anticipate any questions or problems or issues.”   
            Kniaziowski said she does expect the city will have to bring those contract agreements back before the council once the merger and sale goes forward, mainly for formal name changes. Other than that she doesn’t feel there should be any problems with the new contract and previous negotiations.
           “That was a lot of hard work that went into those. I think both parties feel good about them.”
            Horizon and Matson officials are saying the merger and sale process will take about a year and they aren’t expecting any operational changes to Pier III, or the construction project that is well underway.     Kniaziowksi said more information should be coming and she would certainly let the council know if she hears otherwise.
            Overall, Kniaziowski said Matson appears to be a sound company with many years of experience in container shipping. She said they seem to really value the Alaska trade lane and the input and expertise from locals in Alaska’s ports.
