Lodge pleads no contest to helicopter landings

In a July 31 incident involving helicopter landings in Kachemak Bay State Park, a Halibut Cove lodge has pleaded no contest to one count of landing a helicopter without a permit in the park. At a hearing held Oct. 9 with Judge Margaret Murphy at the Homer Courthouse, Stillpoint Lodge owner James Thurston, acting as the representative of the lodge, entered a plea of no contest. Murphy fined the lodge $5,000 with $5,000 suspended and put the lodge on probation for one year, requiring the lodge to comply with all state, federal and local laws. Murphy dismissed nine other counts of making unpermitted landings.
