Alaska Science Forum: When volcanoes awaken
“This morning the seismic tremor was down just a little bit from yesterday. We’re hoping it calms down before too long, but it might last for awhile.” Jeffrey Freymueller was on the phone last week with the electric utility in Cold Bay, a community about 40 miles from the Pavlof Volcano, which had been erupting for more than a week. The utility was wondering how much ash fall to expect and whether it would need to...

Outdoor Kodiak: Finding fun in Kodiak’s least-popular sport fishery
Which sport fishery is the least popular on Kodiak Island? Walk down to any beach on the road system today, and the answer is waiting. I’m betting you won’t meet a single angler. June is the peak for catching Dolly Varden trout in the ocean, yet almost no one bothers. Avid anglers fished for them in May rivers, but once these great fish reach the ocean they’re forgotten. Sure, anglers are distracted by the onset o...

Rockslide briefly closes Rezanof Drive at “The Dip”
“They’re really moving when they come down.” On Monday afternoon, Kodiak police chief T.C. Kamai peered through a pair of binoculars from his patrol car at the southwest face of Pillar Mountain. For about two hours, traffic stopped between City Pier 2 and City Pier 3 as rocks tumbled down the mountain in pouring rain, littering Rezanof Drive with pebbles and the occasional boulder. Kamai, Kodiak Fire Chief Rome Ka...

Ferry system looks for interim replacement for Tustumena
As repairs to the Tustumena drag on, the Alaska Marine Highway System is looking for a Band-Aid to patch the hole in its service map. Late last month, the ferry system published a notice directed at boat operators across Alaska: If you have a boat that can carry at least three vehicles and six passengers, the marine highway wants to hear from you. The notice, formally known as a “request for information,” was insp...

Give us the choice on smoking ban
To the Editor: Here we go again. More government control on its way, less freedom each day. Seems the borough assembly is headed towards more control with a smoking ban. We are well informed about the risks with smoking. We do have choices, do we not? The issue here is when someone else tells another how to operate their business, there is no freedom. The correct method would be to talk to the owner about their co...

Stop lying
To the Editor: Clinton and Bush both told lies. A copycat is formed to others. On the Benghazi and IRS matters, the in after is there, “I take the fifth!” or “I know nothing or heard nothing!” Some even get by, by saying “I’m sorry!” or “I apologize.” DJ Holder and IRS Lerner are both lying. Lerner gets “leave with pay,” where prison would be better for the matter. The same for DJ Holder, a con who is supposed to ...
