Ketchikan: Comments Wanted On New Sport Fishing Business and Guide Licensing Program - The Alaska Department of Fish and Game managers encourage sport fishing business owners, guides, and others interested in the 2005 sport fishing business and guide licensing program to meet with staff to learn about and help shape the new programs.

House Bill 452, passed by the Alaska Legislature and signed into law by Governor Murkowski, establishes minimum professional standards that both fresh and saltwater sport fishing guides and businesses must meet before obtaining a license. In response, ADF&G managers are developing draft regulations, forms, and logbooks needed to implement business and guide license, vessel registration, and fresh and saltwater reporting programs by January, 2005. The department is hopeful that the Alaska Board of Fisheries will address these new regulations at the November 11, 2004 Board meeting in Anchorage.

The Division of Sport Fish plans to hold meetings in Southeast Alaska communities to provide business owners, guides, and others interested with an overview of the draft programs, and solicit comments to incorporate into the program and provide to the Board of Fisheries.

Science: Sugar-coated sea urchin eggs could have sweet implications for human fertility - For many years scientists have believed they understood how closely related species that occupy the same regions of the ocean were kept from interbreeding. It turns out they were only seeing part of the picture.

New research from the University of Washington's Friday Harbor Laboratories shows that common assumptions about sea urchin reproduction don't hold true for all species of the invertebrate creature. The work could lead to better understanding of fertilization among mammals, including the potential to solve some baffling human reproductive problems. - More...

photosJohn Koel, Baker to Banker; An eccentric philanthropist John Koel was a well-known figure in Ketchikan from the day he arrived in 1901 to the day he died in 1946. The eldest son of German immigrants who settled in the Midwest, Koel was a 38-year-old confirmed bachelor, a slight man with high cheekbones, a small mustache and a tidy bankroll he had saved to finance his adventure in Alaska. A baker by trade and already a canny businessman when he alighted on the steamship dock, he quickly toured the new city of Ketchikan and almost immediately opened the OK Bakery on Dock Street, near the intersection with Main Street. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
