Coast Guard leadership to change in Anchorage

A new man takes over Friday as commanding officer of Coast Guard Sector Anchorage and as captain of the port for Western Alaska.

Capt. Paul Mehler III will relieve Capt. Jason Fosdick, who will report to a new post in Alameda, Calif.

Commanding Sector Anchorage is no small job.

The sector has the largest area of responsibility in the nation, covering Cook Inlet, Kodiak Island, the Aleutian chain, the Bering Sea and the Arctic Ocean.

And a really poor vhf relay system that cannot be heard in most places on Kodiak Island, and a mission drift that puts weather channel film crews above flight medics in priority. Shameful.
