Safe Passage for Students Discussed at Joint Session

            Last night, members of the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly and the Board of Education met for a joint work session in the assembly chambers. One of the topics they discussed was the issue of school crossing guards.

Before and after school crossing guard shifts are covered by volunteers and are organized by the Salvation Army. Under the current arrangement, filling crossing guard shifts is one way for non-profit agencies to receive funding from the borough at ten dollars a shift. But a shortage or fluctuating number of volunteers has made it difficult to keep the intersections manned twice a day when school is in session.

            Concerns about the safety of students at street crossings have been raised at Borough Assembly, City Council and School Board meetings. A Facebook page has been created by councilman Terry Haines to share communication between crossing guards and to help generate solutions to the problem.

            At the joint session between the assembly and the school board, the topic was further explored.

            Borough Manager Rick Gifford gave the group an update from an earlier joint meeting between the borough and the Kodiak City Council.

            The king salmon sport fishery on one Kodiak Island river is set to be closed completely this year, and severely restricted on another.

            The Karluk River, which has not achieved its minimum escapement goals since 2005, will be closed to all king sportsfishing throughout its drainage. Last year, 1,308 kings returned to the system, which was more than 2008, but still well below the 10-year high of over 7,000 in 2004. The lower end of the target range this year is 3,600.

            Meanwhile, on the nearby Ayakulik River, anglers can fish for kings, but it will be catch-and-release only from the beginning of the season. Escapement goals have not been reached on the Ayakulik the last two years. Last year the return was 2,615 king salmon. The 10-year high also occurred in 2004, when nearly 25,000 fish returned to the river system. The lower end of the escapement goal this year is 4,800.
