           The Kodiak Community Foundation wrapped up its first year of fundraising and is looking for ideas on where to spend some money on the island.
           Katie St. John sits on the foundation’s advisory board and said the relatively new organization raises funds for a permanent endowment in the Kodiak community.
           “So as Alaskans we’re all pretty familiar with the Alaska Permanent Fund which is an endowment. And each year we receive dividends from the income from that endowment. So the main corpus of the fund stays there and we just receive the income form that and similarly, the community foundation, we would raise funds and that corpus would stay in an account and we would be able to put some of that interest back into that so that the fund itself grows and then we would also be able to use some of that funding to support local projects and local organizations here.”   
            She said it’s a way for people give back to Kodiak, but also have a voice in what is supported – things like community projects, organizations, schools, and wherever else people feel it should be distributed. Last year, thanks to matching funds from the Rasmussen Foundation, Kodiak’s Community Foundation ended the year with almost $95,000, which was the needed seed money to start gaining interest in future years.
             St. John said that money will serve as the organizations financial foundation, and future interest will be put toward the community. However, they were able to create a $5,000 grant opportunity and are soliciting the community for ideas on how to spend it locally.

         Members of Kodiak’s Local Emergency Planning Committee and Emergency Services Organization were given an update on the worldwide Ebola outbreak during a quarterly meeting on Tuesday. Elsa DeHart from the Public Health Center spoke about the virus, and what the threat is here in Alaska.
          She said Ebola has primarily affected countries in Western Africa, where fatalities are close to 5,000. Worldwide there have been 9 deaths from Ebola and only one in the U.S. DeHart said it is spread through bodily fluids, making it a difficult to contract.
           “Really they say that there is no risk for anybody who is not within about three feet of somebody for a long period of time when they are symptomatic.”

          Yesterday Kodiak’s Local Emergency Planning Committee and Emergency Services Organization held a quarterly meeting to update members and the public on various happenings.
           On the agenda was a briefing from the Alaska Aerospace Corporation, or AAC, regarding the rocket explosion that occurred at the Kodiak Launch Complex in August. The hope was to give local emergency planners an update on where clean up efforts stand, but as committee member Jack Maker said, Alaska Aerospace representatives were a no show. 
            “Unfortunately, we attempted to get somebody from Alaska Aerospace here and we still have to go through a few more channels. We have to go through their public affairs office and request that they come to a meeting. We will be following up on that and trying to get that at the next meeting. So, unfortunately, they’re a no show.”   
            Stacy Studebaker is the environmental representative on the emergency planning committee and said she was disappointed by the lack of public comment Alaska Aerospace regarding the aftermath of the rocket explosion.
