              About 15 grams of heroin were prevented from hitting Kodiak’s street after an arrest last week. Kodiak Police Chief said the department received an anonymous tip via Crime Stoppers that two individuals would be transporting heroin to the island via the state ferry Tustumena.
              After compiling other investigative materials and obtaining a search warrant, Wallace said police were able to make contact with 26-year-old Greg Pruitt and 28-year-old Kevleen Clark when the ferry docked on Friday.
               “Our drug enforcement unit along with the Alaska State Troopers with some help from the Alaska Marine Highway System personnel, were able to make contact with Clark and Pruitt, and where in they found that they were in position of approximately 15 grams of heroin – all packaged in small quantities for distribution.”   
                Wallace said the heroin has an estimated street value of $7,500 in Kodiak.
                Both Pruitt and Clark were arrested and charged with misconduct involving a controlled substance in the second and fourth degrees. They were arraigned in court on Saturday with bail set at $20,000 for Pruitt and $15,000 for Clark.
               Wallace said the investigation is on going, and noted that both Pruitt and Clark are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law.

On Friday, there was a half-page ad in the Daily Mirror for Democrat Forrest Dunbar, which in itself is not unusual in the days leading up to an election. But this ad gave credit to Kodiak for being the place where the youthful challenger's campaign to unseat 42-year Congressman Don Young started to gain steam. He spoke with KMXT's Jay Barrett during Monday's morning news.

Jay Barrett/KMXT
The Kodiak High School swimming and diving team swept the Region III tournament over the weekend. The Kodiak girls won with 131 points, 63 more than runner up Colony, which edged host Soldotna by three. It is the girls' eighth straight region title. The Kodiak boys racked up 107 points and downed Soldotna by 39 points to win their sixth straight.
There were six region records broken, all by Kodiak swimmers. Tahna Lindquist set new marks in the 200 yard individual medley and the 500 freestyle. In that last race, Lindquist broke the five-minute mark with a time of 4-minutes 56.5 seconds, a time that was more than two seconds faster than the boys' 500 yard freestyle winner.
Ila Hughes set the record in the 50 yard freestyle.
On the boys' side, freshman Talon Lindquist set marks in the 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke, and the boy's 200 medley relay team set another. The records Talon beat were set 20 years ago.
Both Talon and Tahna were named Region III swimmers of the year.
We have full results after the jump.

Fuel Barge Briefly Aground Near Kodiak
Monday, 03 November 2014
Jay Barrett/KMXT
A 382-foot barge carrying 2.2-million gallons of fuel was briefly aground on Saturday, two miles from Kodiak City. The “DBL-106” refloated on the next tide, but the Coast Guard ordered it to anchor up until a damage assessment was conducted. The 124-foot tug Bismark Sea, owned by Kirby Offshore Marine, was the towing vessel.
There was no immediate sign of pollution as a result of the grounding, and the barge was to have been boomed off until a damage assessment was conducted.
There were no injuries in the incident, and weather at the time included 15 mph winds and 3- to 4-foot seas.
