            A Kodiak High School alumna was selected as a top 50 finalist for an international modeling competition. Leona Gerlitz (gr-litz) is the running to win the Sin City Suicide Girls’ photo contest, which would allow her to represent the film Sin City 2 both at the premiere and Comic-Con in San Diego.
            Gerlitz, a 2010 KHS graduate, said the contest is sponsored by the Suicide Girls’ website, which she said celebrates alternative beauty.
            “Spanning anywhere from tattoos and piercings to different hair colors and beyond that to represent girls who are outside of the norm.” 
            Gerlitz, who currently lives and attends school in Portland, Oregon, said she first heard about the international contest from a coworker who encouraged her to apply, but she didn’t think anything would necessarily come of it.
            To enter, Gerlitz submitted a photo of herself, taken by a friend that is a professional photographer. Her photo, along with the 49 other finalists, is now featured on the Suicide Girls’ Facebook page
             “I was selected as a top 50 finalist which I thought was bananas.”

Al Asuncion/KMXT

            Hello, I’m Al Asuncion, an intern at KMXT as part of the station’s summer archiving project. This week, I listened to the show “My Green Earth”, hosted by Stacy Studebaker, also known as Leila Liverwort. 
           “Hello nature fans and welcome to “My Green Earth,” a weekly radio shows about the natural wonders of our planet for kids and their parents. I’m your host, Leila Liverwort; and today’s show features one of the world’s most mysterious and beautiful fish, the Salmon.
           This episode, titled “The Salmon” aired on KMXT in June of 1994. In the show, Leila tells some information about them that I found interesting.
            “Salmon are kind of unusual among fishers because they live part of their lives in freshwater habitat like rivers and lakes; and the other part of their lives in the ocean. In late spring or early summer, like clockwork; the salmon begin to show up in vast numbers along the seashores of the Pacific Northwest, returning to the streams and rivers where they were born. A salmon may swim thousands of miles of its lifetime to complete its life cycle."

           Local scientists are reminding folks that eating recreationally harvested shellfish from Kodiak waters could be a deadly endeavor. Kodiak shellfish are known to harbor a naturally occurring marine biotoxin that causes Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning, or PSP, which can result in respiratory arrest and failure.
           Brian Himelbloom is an associate professor of Seafood Science and Technology at the Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center and said the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation funds a community based monitoring program that tests shellfish from various locations.
           “And apparently the June samples for Old Harbor came in over 400 micrograms per 100 grams, same for Ouzinkie, and Sand Point was over 600 micrograms per 100 grams of shellfish. And the state and federal action level is only 80 micrograms, so we’re looking at five to eight times higher than what would be considered unsafe.”

    The man convicted of double murder at the Kodiak Coast Guard Base two years ago will spend the rest of his life in federal prison. 63-year-old James Wells was sentenced Tuesday to four consecutive life sentences in Anchorage federal court by Judge Ralph Beistline.
    During sentencing, Wells maintained his innocence, saying “we all suffered for this tragedy.” His defense attorney, federal public defender Rich Curtner, said “the killer is still out there.”
    However, in handing down his sentence, Beistline said Wells was a cold-blooded killer who has shown no remorse. He said Wells was the only person who had motive and opportunity in the deaths of his coworkers, Richard Belisle and James Hopkins.
    The evidence was overwhelming, Beistline said, adding “the real killer is sitting at the table in front of us.”
    U.S. Attorney Karen Loeffler said after the sentencing that justice was served.
    “This was really one of the most planned, premeditated and cold blooded murders that we’ve ever seen,” she said.
    The federal prosecutors’ case was largely circumstantial, as the murder weapon, a 44-magnum handgun, was never found, and there were no witnesses. Nevertheless, the jury found him guilty of first degree murder on April 25th after deliberating less than a day. The trial lasted 19 days.
    The widows of both men Wells killed also spoke at the sentencing, and both told him to “rot in hell.”
    Nicola Belisle said that no sentence would ever be enough.
    Wells was not arrested until 10 months after the murders while the FBI tried to build the case against him. Belisle said she spent that time in fear of her life, worried Wells would also kill her or her children in an attempt to stop the investigation. She spoke of sitting in her home across the street from Wells’ house with a loaded firearm, waiting for him to come after her.
    “I’m still having to look at his house every single day. I want to burn it down. It needs to go away,” Belisle said. “That’s my ultimate goal so that I don’t have to look at it for the rest of my life, and my children, my potential grandchildren that they don’t ever have to sit in our family home and see that house.”
    Belisle may get that chance, as Judge Beistline said the victims’ families are due restitution.
    Wells can appeal the sentencing within 14 days.
