There's somewhat of a slow motion invasion of a fresh water crustacean happening in Buskin River and Buskin Lake. It has a hard shell, two claws and tastes great in pies. 

“Crawdads, crawfish, crayfish, it all depends where you grew up,” says Blythe Brown of the Kodiak Soil and Water Conservation District. 

The most recent crawdad to be captured was turned in this week by a Coast Guardsman who found it in the Buskin River. It measured seven-inches long. 
If you happen to find one, contact Brown. If you come across a lot of them, you can always try the suggestions here: (http://www.cajuncrawfish.com/how-to-boil-crawfish.htm)

Kodiak Senator Gary has been in the Alaska Legislature for over a decade and has never seen a financial morass such as the one that faces Alaska today. In this Talk of the Rock interview he expresses his optimism that the House and the Senate will agree on a budget that will avoid a shutdown of state government at the end of June and that Erin's Law will be passes in an acceptable form. He also talks about how he fell out of favor in the Republican party over his stance against SB21, which restructured the state's oil tax.

Sen. Stevens: SB21 Stance Precipitated Fall From Leadership

For two sessions, or four years, Kodiak Senator Gary Stevens was the Alaska Senate President. Before that he served as majority leader and rules chair under Senator Lyda Green. During both of those periods the Senate was a coalition of moderates, with all of the Democrats and most of the Republicans joining in. 

After re-apportionment redrew the election map, the 10-10 tie between the parties shifted Republican and the coalition fell apart under more conservative leadership – for two years under Senate President Charlie Huggins and this current session under President Kevin Meyers. 

In that time Stevens was first given chairmanship of the Education Committee for two years, but had no committee assignments this year, instead being appointed to lead the Legislative Council, which tends to the House and Senate's business while out of session.

During a conversation recorded for Tuesday's Talk of the Rock, KMXT's Jay Barrett asked Senator Stevens if he felt he was being shuffled aside by the more conservative leadership in the Senate.
