The short handed Sand Point Eagles finished strong on Friday evening, defeating the Unalaska Raiders by a score of 71-44. The team flew to King Cove to play the Raiders. The Eagles could only suit up seven players for the game. The Raiders were young, quick and feisty. The game was within 10 points for most of the first three quarters. However, the Eagles were able to dig down deep and finish strong, outscoring their opponent by a score of 30 -9 in the fourth quarter. All seven players scored, played hard, and contributed equally.

Matt Bravo scored a game high 25 points and added a season high 14 assists. Keith Wilson continued his string of double doubles with 14 points and 13 rebounds. Other scoring included: Colten Mack (10), Evan Wilson (9), Deion Osterback (7),Jeremiah Wilson (4) and Maynard Maglaya (2).

The Eagles have back to back games today, starting with Unalaska at 11:00 and a game scheduled for 1:00 with King Cove.

FWS Extends Comment Period for Wosnesenski and Chirikof Cattle to February 20, 2014

Posted on: January 30th, 2014 | Author: Virgil | Filed under: Community Window

The deadline to submit your ideas on issues and alternatives to be considered in the NEPA documents is now extended to February 20, 2014.

Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge
95 Sterling Hwy, Suite 1
Homer, AK 99603
Phone: (907) 235-6546
Fax (907) 235-7783

~~~~~~~~~~~

You are invited to help the US Fish and Wildlife Service identify issues and develop alternatives to address unauthorized grazing by cattle on two refuge islands, Wosnesenski and Chirikof. This effort is known as “scoping” and it is an early step in a process to develop either Environmental Assessments or Environmental Impact Statements in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). These documents will identify the need for action and authority to act, summarize potential issues, evaluate a reasonable range of alternatives, and describe the affected environment and environmental consequences of alternatives. Cattle ownership and compatibility with purposes of the refuge will also be addressed.
