          A small group of local actors will take the stage Thursday evening for the opening night of Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” Jenny Stevens is directing the production, which she said is likely one of the most challenging plays ever performed in Kodiak.
           “I think people are excited to be able to do an iconic masterpiece like Edward Albee’s ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ It actually was performed 25 years ago by a different cast. So I think it’s exciting to be able to produce  something that is that challenging and that exciting and as relevant today as it was 51 years ago.”   
             Stevens said the play has really pushed the acting chops of its cast. She said it is challenging because it is rich with mature content and deep ideas – meant to make its actors, directors and viewers think. She said it’s definitely not a play for folks to bring their kids to as it includes language and some sexuality.

          More than 50 students at Kodiak High School participated in a sit-in protest Friday morning. During second period students lined the hallway outside the office in what they called a nonviolent protest of the high school’s attendance policies.
          Senior Stephanie Price said a number of students had voiced concerns this year about the school’s attendance policy, specifically the administering of in-school suspensions, or ISS, after a certain number of unexcused absences. She admitted that some of the information leading up to Friday’s protest wasn’t accurate on the students’ part, but still felt the protest was beneficial in promoting better communication with the high school’s administration.
           “I think the protest in general was a learning experience for both the students and the teachers. I think the students realized that we should be more prepared when trying to make a point. And we had valid points but a lot of things were brought up that weren’t really involved with the ISS rule. And I think that from the administration point, they see that communication with the students – proper communication, just really friendly – is really all we want.”   
            Chris Aguirre is the new principal at KHS this year and said the students definitely made their voice very clear during the sit in and explained some the school’s policy regarding attendance and ISS.

SeaShare Sending 13,000 lbs. of Kodiak Halibut to Kotzebue

    Wednesday, about 15 pallets of frozen halibut will be winging their way north from Kodiak, to be distributed to communities around Kotzebue.
    As Sea Share’s Jim Harmon tells us, the halibut is bycatch from the Kodiak trawl fleet.
    “These are halibut that were caught in the Gulf of Alaska while trawl fishermen fished for pollock and other ground fish. They’re called ‘incidental catch.’ They’re not allowed to sell those fish, they’re only allowed to sell the targeted species. So the only thing they can do with them is donate them to Sea Share, or throw them overboard.”
    The 13,000 pounds of halibut were brought back to Kodiak and processed by local canneries and packed into the 50-pound boxes.
    “The processors in Kodiak – there’s seven of them that participate with Sea Share – they work these fish in various ways. The fish that are going up to Kotzebue, are headed and gutted, and then they’re sleeved and then they’re packed in 50-pound boxes. Some of the halibut is also steak and some are filleted, and those generally go to the food bank in Kodiak or the shelters there.”
    Also donated is the moving of all that halibut by Carlile Transportation out to Air Station Kodiak, where the Coast Guard will takeover and fly them to Kotzebue on an HC-130 Hercules.
    Once in that far north city, the halibut will be distributed in town and surrounding villages by the NANA Regional Corporation.
    Sea Share, based in Seattle, has provided 200-million meals over the past 20 years across the nation.

Akutan, False Pass Without VPSO
Tuesday, 30 September 2014

Lauren Rosenthal/KUCB
    As of today, two Aleutian communities are lacking local law enforcement. The village public safety officer in Akutan has resigned for personal reasons. And False Pass lost its VPSO two months ago, when the officer moved back to the East Coast to be near family.
    Both were employed by the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association, or APIA. They get funding from the state of Alaska to put officers in five communities.
    But keeping them is a challenge. APIA’s public safety coordinator Michael Nemeth says most VPSOs don’t stay in the Aleutians and Pribilofs for more than a few years. Hiring from within the region might help with that, but Nemeth says it's tough to pull off.
    Without an officer on the ground, Akutan and False Pass will be relying on the Alaska State Troopers. And Nemeth says he could always quote-”saddle up” himself. He’s a certified VPSO with experience in Nelson Lagoon and St. George.
