            The University of Alaska Board of Regents begins two days of meetings in Fairbanks today (Thursday) and on the agenda is a proposal to increase the cost of tuition. The proposal calls for a seven percent increase for undergraduate tuition.

            Many local college students are unhappy with the proposed tuition increase. And, as KMXT's Maggie Wall reports, some are questioning the fairness of the way tuitions are charged at smaller, rural campuses.

            A meeting between Kodiak's power utility and state and federal agency representatives appeared to go smoothly with few concerns raised over a proposed third turbine at the Terror Lake hydro dam. The Kodiak Electric Association wants to upgrade its hydro plant as part of a plan to add three more wind turbines on Pillar Mountain to reach a goal of generating 95 percent of its power through renewable resources by 2020.

            KEA is applying to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to add a third 11.25 megawatt hydro turbine at Terror Lake. That would allow the utility to generate more power at a faster rate. Only then could it expand its wind production on Pillar Mountain to six turbines and wean its dependence on diesel, says KEA's president and CEO Darron Scott.

Trial in Cavaness Killing Underway PDF Print E-mail

            The murder trial for the killing of 41-year-old Darrell Cavaness of Kodiak got underway yesterday with attorneys on both sides giving opening statements and jurors hearing testimony from two separate witnesses.

            The 14 jurors will resume hearing testimony from the second witness today.      

            Thirty-one-year-old Chawn D. Summerall stands accused of killing Cavaness on January 22, 2008. He faces a charge of second-degree murder in the beating death of the Kodiak man who was found unconscious in a house on Natalia Way. Cavaness died a week later in an Anchorage hospital from head injuries.

            Summerall had been indicted in June but that was dismissed by the judge who ruled that the evidence presented to the grand jury had relied on hearsay evidence. The judge also said that grand jurors hadn't been informed that Summerall had also been struck by the same piece of wood that's suspected to have been used as the murder weapon.

            Also accused is 31-year-old Joshua Erickson whose alleged statements to police have been used as evidence against Summerall. Erickson was indicted separately and is not scheduled to go to trial until March.

            Assistant Attorney General June Stein is prosecuting the case in Kodiak Superior Court. Judge Fred Torrisi is presiding.
