            Kodiak is known for its abundant natural resources, but coffee isn’t one of them. That’s why a handful of local coffee roasters must often work internationally to bring some of the best beans to the island, where they are roasted locally and served in one of the many coffee shops along the road system. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs got curious about that roasting process, and decided to get in touch with one of Kodiak’s coffee connoisseurs, to better understand the work that goes into a morning cup of Joe.

Tire Expert Testifies in CommSta Murder Trial
Monday, 14 April 2014



           A tire expert says it's unlikely that a nail found in the tire of the man charged in a Kodiak double homicide was picked up on a roadway.
           Gary Bolden says the long nail likely was perpendicular to the tread and probably inserted mechanically.
           Bolden testified Monday in the trial of James Wells, who's charged with murder in the shooting deaths of Richard Belisle and James Hopkins on April 12, 2012 at a Coast Guard Communication Station on Kodiak Island.
           Wells worked with the victims and claimed he was delayed that morning because he stopped to change a flat tire.
           Prosecutors say he instead drove to the shop at the communications station, shot his co-workers and returned home to establish an alibi.

Prosecution Continues Case Against Wells
Monday, 14 April 2014

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Coast Guard investigator says James Wells had time to drive to a Coast Guard communications station, gun down two co-workers and head for home during a 34-minute period when a security camera recorded his truck along a Kodiak road.
    Joe Sturgis testified Monday in the trial of Wells, who's charged with murder in the deaths of Richard Belisle (BEL'-eye-ul) and James Hopkins on April 12, 2012.
    Prosecutors are trying to account for Wells' whereabouts that morning from 6:48 to 7:22 when his truck was recorded passing the Coast Guard base gate and returning.
    Wells claims he stopped to check on a soft tire and drove home to change it.
    Sturgis says driving at the speed limit gave Wells time to reach the communications station and return.

Assembly to Revisit Employee Compensation and Classifications
Monday, 14 April 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

           The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly doesn’t often meet on Tuesdays, but tomorrow night they will gather for a work session to discuss concerns with the employee classification and compensation plan, among other things.
            Last year Fox Lawson and Associates conducted an employee compensation and classification study to help make sure borough jobs were competitive with the statewide and national markets. The study resulted in some changes to the description of certain jobs, and changes in pay scales to make sure they were competitive. But the acceptance of that study, and some of the changes that resulted from it, raised questions from borough employees. The assembly hopes to work with the Personnel Advisory Board to help answer some of those questions tomorrow night.
            Also on tomorrow night’s agenda is a discussion of the Old Harbor Leadership Summit. The Old Harbor Native Corporation, City of Old Harbor and Alutiiq Tribe of Old Harbor hold a semiannual leadership summit to discuss economic development, infrastructure, social issues and other topics of interest for the community of Old Harbor. Borough assembly members are invited to the summit, so they will discuss potential travel plans for the event, which will be held on May 23.
            Tuesday’s work session starts at 7:30 p.m. in the borough conference room. The assembly will also hold a regular meeting on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers
