Bay fishery policy told – The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has adopted a policy on commercial fishing for salmon in Resurrection Bay “in order to minimize conflict between sport and commercial fishermen,” so states a news release from the department. The aim of the new policy, according to ADF&G, is to protect coho, or silver, salmon for recreational sport fishermen and at the same time, to allow both sport and commercial fishermen to harvest surplus pink salmon.

Bear Creek approves new fire service area in Tuesday election – Voting 97 for and only 15 against, the voters of the Bear Creek precinct encompassed by the proposed Bear Creek Fire Service Area, approved that government unit in the Tuesday election. They also elected a five-member board of directors for the new service area. Elected to three-year termw were Ed Zimmerman and Lois Munson. Elected to two-year terms were Eric Traber and Bob Estes. Warren D. “Bud” Crawford was elected to a one-year term.

Drill rig anchors here in Bay – The drilling rig Alaskan Star is anchored in Resurrection Bay following a rough maiden voyage from Japan where it was built. The drilling vessel will remain here for about a month while the crew members receive orientation and training in Alaskan waters. Exxon officials and customs agents were in Seward this week inspecting the vessel.

New contractors carpet library – The Seward Community Library has re-opened after a four-day closure in which 400 yards of new beige carpeting were laid. Carpeting was the major part of a $57,000 refurbishing project funded by a state Library Construction Grant. The project got underway in July and included acoustical ceilings and new baseboard heating.

Police & Courts – Officers this past week responded to a call of a possible stabbing in the Seward area. There was no blood or evidence found and the case is still pending.

Council has full agenda – The Jan. 24 regular meeting of the Seward City Council opened with a full agenda and some 35 interested persons on hand, many of them from areas outside the city limits. Alaska Railroad officials Red Allen and General Manager Dorsey were on hand to discuss Seward’s freight tariffs and retrograde shipments of North Slope heavy equipment. Allen said that part of the Alyeska retrograde material would “go through” Seward, but that shipping plans had not been finalized.

Beautiful Downtown Moose Pass – Make a mistook – The February Homemakers meeting will be Feb. 1, not the 8th as I wrote before. Delbert Wolfe is off visiting in the chilly Northwest. He wanted to pay a visit to ray Stafford on Jan. 19 to help him celebrate his 91st birthday. Every time I see that ad where the fella gives the housewife $65 for the blouse to test some detergent, I think of all the clothes I’d like to give him to work on.
