Council Looks to Add $880K to Budget Spending PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 12 February 2015

    When the Kodiak City Council meets tonight, the new fire chief will be given the oath of office. Jim Mullican was given the job permanently last week. He had been acting chief since Rome Kamai was suddenly suspended in December.
    The council will also hold a public hearing and a vote on the supplemental appropriation to the current fiscal year's budget. A supplemental budget is to make up for changes in income or spending since the budget was finalized last year. This year's one supplemental is for $879,753. 
    The council will also approve its budget goals for the new fiscal year that begins July 1st. 
    A resolution supporting the Alaska Municipal League's request to the state that it commit to $60-million annually to the Revenue Sharing Program will also be considered, though the vote may prove futile given the billions of dollars the state is short this year.
    And finally, in executive session, the council will give City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski her evaluation and contract review.
    The meeting starts at 7:30 in the assembly chambers of the borough building, and will be broadcast live here on KMXT.

    The CEO and board president of the Alaska Aerospace Corporation were before the Senate Finance Committee Wednesday morning, making a pitch, not so much for funding, but for the opportunity to move on. CEO Craig Campbell even raised the possibility of taking the state-owned corporation private.

KMXT Loses Friend, Volunteer, Board Member PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 10 February 2015

    Sad news friends; KMXT's Ron Sears passed away from complications of a congenital heart condition this (Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015) morning at 2:30; his mother was with him at Providence Hospital in Anchorage.

    Ron's first involvement with KMXT came while participating in a live performance of A Christmas Carol, and blossomed to include on-air volunteering, serving on the Community Advisory Board and Board of Directors and spending more years on Jock of the Rock than makes any good sense (a real sports fan, he love JOTR). He was even voted KMXT Volunteer of the Year.

    Despite a near-debilitaing stroke three-and-a-half years ago, Ron barely slowed down. His sense of humor, intelligence and and care for public radio in Kodiak will be missed. A lot.

     No word on local arrangements yet, but his family's address is 3483 Avalon Dr., #231, Hood River, Oregon 97031 if you'd like to send condolences.

    A married U.S. Coast Guard couple once stationed in Kodiak were attacked by another guardsman in Bourne, Massachusetts, late last week, leaving one dead, and the other hospitalized.
    Petty Officers Anna and Lisa Trubnikova were attacked in their home an hour south of Boston by heavily-armed Coast Guardsman Adrian Loya. 
    Lisa Trubnikova was killed in Thursday's shooting, her wife Anna was wounded. In the ensuing standoff with police, Bourne Police Officer Jared MacDonald was shot in the back but is expected to recover.
    Authorities haven’t disclosed a motive for the shooting, but Lisa Trubnikova’s relatives told the Boston Globe that Loya had been pursuing Lisa for years, beginning when he was stationed at Coast Guard Base Kodiak at the same time as the two women. The same relative told the Globe that Loya was obsessed and continued to pursue Lisa Trubnikova romantically even after she married and moved to Cape Cod. Relatives said they did not believe Lisa Trubnikova had reported Loya's behavior to the Coast Guard, believing she could handle the situation on her own. 
    Thirty-one-year-old Lisa Trubnikova was stationed at Coast Guard Joint Base Cape Cod, while 30-year-old Anna Trubnikova is based at Woods Hole.
    Coast Guard First District Commander Rear Adm. Linda Fagan thanked the Bourne Police Department for its swift response, saying it saved the life of Anna Trubnikova. She also thanked Police Officer MacDonald, who himself was a Coast Guard veteran.
