Prosecution Continues Case Against Wells PDF Print E-mail
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.

           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

    As part of the State of Alaska’s effort to better track king salmon, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game is requiring off-shore anglers to keep the head and tail on any kings they catch until they get back to Kodiak. Donn Tracy, the Kodiak Area Sportsfish Management Biologist, explains the emergency order to retain the head and tails of king salmon are to facilitate measuring the fishes’ length, obtain a scale sample, and to find a coded wire tag embedded in the heads of some of the kings when they were small. Those fish can be identified because their adipose fins have been clipped.
    He said Fish and Game will have employees circulating through all of Kodiak’s public docks and out on the base, to meet sport anglers when they return.
    Tracy says about 7,000 king salmon are caught by sport anglers in Kodiak Island waters, but he’s not expecting to get samples from all of them, but said 1,000 or more would be great.
    He said the information collected will not be used for catch allocation – that Fish and Game is only interested in the genetic stock composition.
    The emergency order prohibiting de-heading kings goes into effect on May 31st. Tracy added that the fish can be gutted and cleaned onboard before returning to port to help preserve their freshness.

           The race for House District 32 is shaping out to be a competitive one. This week Kodiak City Councilman Rich Walker announced his plans to run for the seat, which is currently held by Representative Alan Austerman.
           Austerman has not hinted at plans for a re-election, but last month his daughter, Borough Assemblywoman Carol Austerman, announced her intent to run, as has former Assemblywoman Louise Stutes.
           Walker enters the race amidst his second year on the city council.
           “And I’ve been part of the group of us that go down to Juneau every year and talk to our legislatures and all that and kind of see how the process is and try to get money for our projects in Kodiak. And after doing that I really thought that man I could do this job here. Being a project manager and dealing with government projects and a lot of the business side of my life dealt with communicating with people and sitting down and talking out different projects and how they’re going and money and I thought that was kind of a good fit.”
            If elected, Walker said he’d like to focus on making sure House District 32 gets the money it needs for infrastructure projects.
            “Water and sewer projects, roads, harbors for all of our coastal communities within District 32, which Kodiak is a part of now. And that’s where the money comes out of – Juneau. ”
