           Threats made toward some Borough Assembly members in recent days prompted a small police presence during last night’s borough work session. The presence consisted of a single officer, not dressed in uniform, who only identified themselves as a member of law enforcement when directly asked by Assemblyman  Mel Stephens. Upon learning that an officer was indeed present, Stephens left the meeting.
           “Because I feel the purpose of having that officer here was a false pretext and I find it very offensive and contrary to my view of what government should be about, I am not going to lend my presence to this meeting.”)    
           Stephens was followed by one member of the community who did not identify herself before leaving.
           “Toward that end I’m going to be leaving too.”
           After the meeting, the man who identified himself as the officer said much of his work for the police department is undercover and asked to remain anonymous. However, he also pointed out that he is a borough resident and had just as much right to be there as any other borough citizen.

    More results have come in from on-going studies looking for radiation in different fish from Alaska waters, and they continue to show no evidence of contamination from the Fukushima nuclear power plant meltdown in Japan.
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released results from samples of four kinds of important food fish, and none had any trace of Fukushima-related radioisotopes, according to Dr. Ali Hamade of the State Division of Epidemiology.
    “None of them have detected any radionuclide that would be associated with any appreciable health risk. Even for those who consume them in huge quantities – we’re talking more than 250 pounds a year – we’re nowhere close to really suspecting any appreciable health risk.”
    Previously, negative results were released from tests of sablefish, pollock and halibut in Alaska waters. The results released Thursday were from testing of cod and three species of salmon: kings, chums and reds.
    “These analyses target several species of fish, the fish that are for most important for Alaskans. If you look at pollock, that’s important nationwide and globally even, because they go into imitation crab and fish nuggets and whatnot. So it’s not only something Alaskans consume.”
    Hamade said the tests FDA scientists use are sensitive enough to be able to tell Fukushima-related radiation, such as iodine-131, cecium-134 or cesium-137, from common background radiation that is naturally present in nature.

           National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration law enforcement officials are currently investigating a collision between the state ferry Kennicott and a humpback whale near Kodiak. The incident was first reported on Saturday and brought a multi-agency team of scientists to the island to help determine whether or not the collision caused the death of the 30-foot-long, subadult humpback whale.
            Kate Wynne is a marine mammal specialist for the University of Alaska Sea Grant Program and spent all of Wednesday cutting open the 25-ton humpback whale, which is currently beached on Puffin Island, just beyond Kodiak harbor’s breakwater.
            “This animal definitely died from a massive trauma. It got hit. It got t-boned basically in a characteristic way that ship strikes have been evidenced before. So, broken ribs, broken spine, skull fracture – that sort of thing. The determination of how that happened is out of my realm and it’s in the investigation mode still.”

Coming up this week, a judge says the Kenai River sportsfishing industry can go ahead with its attempt to end commercial setnet fishing in parts of Alaska. It’s a banner summer for Southeast crabbers, but are the days numbered for Alaska’s crustaceans? All that, and sometimes fishy news happens after we go to press, coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska, KDLG’s Mike Mason in Dillingham, KFSK’s Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg, APRN’s Steve Heimel in Anchorage and KDLL’s Shaylon Cochran in Kenai.

           A minor renovation at the Baranov Museum will allow for more art work to be put on display. Museum Director Tiffany Brunson said the museum received a grant from the Rasmuson Foundation via Museums Alaska to improve art storage in the historic Erskine House.
            “So Don Corwin, a local carpenter and who does great work for us always, is currently in the museum building additional shelving in one of our collection spaces so that we can store all of the art that we have in a little bit more appropriate setting.”  
             Brunson said most of the museum’s art is hanging on the walls upstairs in the administrative offices because there is nowhere else to put it.
              “And it’s really a great representation of Kodiak artwork through the years. We’ve been collecting art since we became a museum and the Kodiak Historical Society in 1954.”

              She said the museum also uses the Rasmuson Foundation’s art acquisition grant to buy local art and add to its collection.
