Coast Guard Searching for Man Overboard from Freighter; Ocean Ranger Aground in Raspberry Strait
Monday, 09 November 2009

            The Coast Guard is searching for a 21 year-old Filipino crewman reported missing yesterday from the 754-foot Panamanian-flagged cargo vessel Corona Infinity, 40 miles north of Dutch Harbor.

            The Coast Guard received a call from the crew of the vessel about 5:30 p.m. yesterday evening indicating that one of their crewman had gone missing and his uniform had been found on the back of the ship.

            The Coast Guard immediately diverted an Air Station Kodiak HH-65 Dolphin helicopter assigned to the Coast Guard Cutter Boutwell and issued an urgent marine information broadcast encouraging vessels in the area to keep a look out for the man and assist if possible.

            Coast Guard rescue crews searched until 7 p.m. and have continued with a first-light search by an HC-130 Hercules from Air Station Kodiak and an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from the Coast Guard's forward operating location in Cold Bay. The 92-foot fishing vessel Andronica from Dutch Harbor has responded to the broadcast for assistance and is searching the area.

            Weather in the area includes 30 mph winds, 11-foot waves, air temperature of 43 degrees Fahrenheit and a water temperature of 41 degrees Fahrenheit.

            The Corona Infinity is a bulk coal carrier and was in transit to Prince Rupert, British Columbia, when they noticed the crewman had gone missing. The missing crewman's name is being withheld pending next of kin notification.


            Meanwhile closer to home, the Coast Guard is monitoring a situation in Raspberry Strait, where the fishing vessel Ocean Ranger went soft aground this (Monday) morning. The Coast Guard is not responding at this time, as the captain of the Ocean Ranger reported that they should be able to refloat on the next high tide. The Good Samaritan vessel Gemini is reportedly standing by.

            It was a mixed bag for the Kodiak Bears over the weekend. Swimmers did well at state, while the volleyball team came up game short of a birth to the championships. Here at home, a large handful of wrestlers won their classes at the Robin Hervey Tournament.

            In swimming, the Kodiak girls placed second in the state swimming and diving championships Saturday at Anchorage's Bartlett High School, behind powerhouse Service High School. Laura Griffing brought back her third state title by winning the 100-meter breast stroke in 1-minute 6.57-seconds - about a second-and-a-half faster than second place. Kodiak's Myra Scholze was third, about two-seconds back. Celeste Beck-Goodell was second in the 500 freestyle and 7th in the 200 individual medley. Jori Lundquist was 4th in the 200 freestyle and the 100 backstroke, Laura Griffing was 6th in the 100 freestyle, and Sophie Hogan was 7th from the 1-meter diving board.

            As a team, Kodiak was 3rd in the 400 freestyle relay, 4th in the 200 medley relay, and 5th in the 200 freestyle relay.

            On the boy's side, the team was 5th overall, with Dimond winning the championship. Scott Wandersee was 2nd in 1-meter diving, Nando Macinko was 3rd in the 100 backstroke and 5th in the 50 freestyle, Austin Reed was 5th in the 200 freestyle, and Clayton Schauff was 8th in the 100 butterfly. The boys were 3rd in the 400 freestyle relay and 4th in the 200 freestyle relay.

The Bears had beaten the Stars 3-games-to-1 in the opening round of the tournament. Soldotna will be joining Palmer and Colony in the state tourney.


            At the Robin Hervey Wrestling Tournament, Elisha Fields, Chloe Ivanoff, Alex Lounsbury, Isaac Fields, Person Brodie, David Castonguay, Thomas Long and Anthony Atonio all won their respective weight classes. Teams from Palmer, Houston and North Pole were in Kodiak for the event.

            As we reported on Monday, the former Washington State Ferry Kalakala, currently tied up in Tacoma, Washington, may have a new home soon

            The current owner of the Kalakala, Steve Rodrigues, would like to restore the 276-foot ship to its 1935 Art Deco glory, and make it a centerpiece on the waterfront of Port Angeles, on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. But, he adds there are other possible homes for the unique ship.

            After retirement from ferry service, the Kalakala spent nearly 30 years beached in Kodiak's Gibson Cove, serving as a fish processing plant. It was refloated and towed to Seattle in 1998 by Peter Bevis, who bought it from the city of Kodiak.

            A public hearing was held during last night's regular meeting of the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly.The subject of the hearing was the proposed new long-term care facility for Kodiak. In public comments and in the assembly member's comments, support for a new facility was strong.

            The purpose of last night's hearing was to discuss the borough's application for a grant from the state Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development. The Community Development Block Grant Program funds up to $850,000 for community development activities which benefit people of low and moderate incomes. If the grant is awarded to the borough, the money will fund the planning phase of a new care center.

            Last night's hearing was an opportunity for the public to comment on the grant application or to offer alternative suggestions. All of the comments at the hearing were favorable towards the grant application and the building of a new long-term care facility.
