Generator fire highlights Ouzinkie’s power problems
A generator fire left the city of Ouzinkie without power for a day. The fire started around 8 p.m. Thursday when the city’s main diesel generator caught fire. “Basically our main generator caught fire and it looks like it’s completely destroyed,” Ouzinkie mayor and assistant fire chief Dan Clarion said Friday afternoon. Ouzinkie’s fire chief was out of town, but the city’s volunteer firefighters jumped into action...

Guest editorial: Salmon runs are threatened
Alaska salmon runs are increasingly threatened. Loss of habitat, poor management and uncertain food supplies are but a few reasons. Some of these things are within our control. Some are not. That’s why we need to protect the habitat we know is vital to salmon survivorship.

Q: A friend of mine recently gifted me with a box of leftover vegetable seeds, some were more than a year old. Now that it’s time to start seeds, I’m wondering if they are still good.

Few attend runway extension project meeting
In 2007, Kodiak residents loudly protested a plan to extend Kodiak State Airport toward the mouth of the Buskin River. On Thursday evening, with the plan modified to avoid the Buskin, only a half-dozen people showed up to a new meeting with the Federal Aviation Administration. “It’s a remarkable improvement over the first meeting that we had,” said Pat Holmes, one of a handful of Kodiakans who testified in the Kod...

Most of the first fish landed goes to Homer, Kodiak and Petersburg, but processors there said there wasn’t “the usual chatter” and none said they had a feel for what’s going to happen yet with prices. Lots of halibut remains in the freezers, and some major processors reportedly unloaded the high-priced fish at a loss last...
