            As the first year of the 27th Alaska State Legislature draws near, the 90-day session approved by voters in 2006 is in danger of being modified by the politicians it was intended to apply to. Prior to the 2008 session, legislators had 120 days to complete the people's business. Now, Kodiak's Gary Stevens, the senate president, said he would introduce legislation to modify the session length during at least one of the two years a legislature is comprised of.

            Kodiak photographer, and KPC photography instructor, Marion Owen, was out last night capturing images of the total lunar eclipse, and was kind enough to share with us a photo and her technique:

            In addition to setting up the camera and tripod (in the comfort of an upstairs bedroom and shooting through an open window!), we prepared for the evening moon show by making a batch of popcorn, sipping eggnog and hot blueberry-pomegranite spiced cider and nibbling on fruitcake. Yes, we were very blessed with a clear, calm night.

EQUIPMENT

            View of Monday evening's total lunar eclipse shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera, mounted on a tripod, and fitted with a 70-200mm (f/2.8) lens with a 2x extender. Exposure notes: ISO: 400 (at the beginning of the eclipse) and eventually moved to 1600 (as the moon darkened). A cable release was used to reduce camera shake.

Summerall Found Not Guilty of 2nd Degree Murder PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 20 December 2010

            A 31-year-old Kodiak man has been acquitted of second degree murder after a jury returned a not guilty verdict. But the jury did convict Chawn D. Summerall of felony assault and he will likely remain incarcerated until he is sentenced this spring. He faces a maximum 20 years in prison. 

            Summerall was one of two men accused in the 2008 beating death of 41-year-old Darrell Cavaness of Kodiak. The jury spent late Thursday, all-day Friday and just a couple of hours Monday deliberating before returning its verdict shortly after 10 a.m.

            Neither the prosecutor nor defense attorneys that had argued the case were present for the reading of the verdict but heard the decision through a conference call.

            It was on the night of January 22, 2008 that Cavaness was found beaten unconscious in an apartment on Natalia Way. He died about a week later in an Anchorage hospital.

            An earlier indictment against Summerall was thrown out after a judge ruled prosecutors had presented hearsay as evidence. Charges were refilled against Summerall and the murder trial began December 6th. It included more than 30 witnesses and 300 exhibits entered in as evidence.

            Also indicted is 31-year-old Joshua Erickson, who faces a charge of second-degree murder. Prosecutors had decided to try the men separately and that trial is scheduled to begin in March.
