On Wednesday, Fish and Wildlife Protection troopers cited two Juneau men, 41 and 47 years old, for violations in use of personal crab pots in Auke Bay. Both men were cited for using pots that did not meet standards for biodegradable escape mechanisms. The mechanisms allow crab to escape in the event pots are lost. The men are scheduled for arraignment in Juneau District Court Feb. 7.

The U.S. Coast Guard performed two medical evaluations via helicopter Friday afternoon. An infant suffering seizures in Kake was picked up and transported to Sitka so he could be treated at Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital. And a second rescue helicopter crew went to Craig to airlift a man, 34, from Ketchikan. The man sustained second-degree burns to his left foot a week ago and was suffering infection. Commercial air ambulances were not available for either patient.

Wind and rain Friday night caused the sinking of a 16-foot boat in Aurora Harbor. Harbor officer Tim Ackerman said Saturday that there were no fuel problems. It took about an hour to get the boat floating again, Ackerman said.

Alcohol-related calls: 4.

Drug-related calls: 1.
