          Yesterday Kodiak’s Local Emergency Planning Committee and Emergency Services Organization held a quarterly meeting to update members and the public on various happenings.
           On the agenda was a briefing from the Alaska Aerospace Corporation, or AAC, regarding the rocket explosion that occurred at the Kodiak Launch Complex in August. The hope was to give local emergency planners an update on where clean up efforts stand, but as committee member Jack Maker said, Alaska Aerospace representatives were a no show. 
            “Unfortunately, we attempted to get somebody from Alaska Aerospace here and we still have to go through a few more channels. We have to go through their public affairs office and request that they come to a meeting. We will be following up on that and trying to get that at the next meeting. So, unfortunately, they’re a no show.”   
            Stacy Studebaker is the environmental representative on the emergency planning committee and said she was disappointed by the lack of public comment Alaska Aerospace regarding the aftermath of the rocket explosion.

          On Wednesday’s of Talk of the Rock, KMXT will talk about marijuana legalization with an unlikely advocate of the movement. Larry Kirk is a Chief of Police in Old Monroe, Missouri, and outspoken critic of prohibition.
          Kirk said he first started researching the United States’ “War on Drugs” movement about five years ago to see if it was worth the money federal and state governments were pouring into it.
           “And I started actually looking at the history of drugs such as marijuana – cannabis, and try to find out exactly why it became illegal to begin with and to see if we were actually making any kind of dent on addiction rates here in America, or  drug use here in America or the importation of drugs.”   
           Kirk said it became clear to him that current drug policies have failed, and something else needed to be done. One option that is a ballot measure for many states in the upcoming election is legalizing marijuana – something Kirk believes might actually help the war on drugs.
            “I think every state should have the opportunity to do it. I think federally the federal guidelines definitely need to be changed. I think this is easily something that should be regulated and treated just as we do with tobacco and alcohol. It’s something that responsible adults can use just like they do alcohol and we can set standards just as we do for the consumption of alcohol as well.”
              Alaska is one of many states considering the legalization of marijuana and Kirk will join KMXT live, Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. for Talk of the Rock to discuss his ideas on the matter more in depth. Folks will be allowed to call in during the program and ask questions of Kirk directly by calling KMXT at 486-3181.

At last week's Kodiak Island Borough Board of Education meeting, the district's director of facilities, Greg Hecker, gave a brief report on the progress of the Kodiak High School's new addition.

“We've been assured that the scheduled time lines that have been brought forward are holding," he said. "So we're still looking at getting in the school on or about December 10th, for a moving-in over Christmas break.”

As the most visible part of the school, its southwest face, nears completion, Hecker said the inside is nearing completion.

"The fourth and the third floor are essentially complete. 98 percent, final punch list and  cleaning is about all that's left for those two floors," he said. "So it's moving along. It doesn't look like it from the outside, but hopefully we'll get staff in there soon.”

The next phase will begin in the new year, when the addition that includes the front entrance will be started.
