New Indictments in Cavaness Killing
Friday, 02 July 2010

            After having one indictment thrown out a month ago, a Kodiak grand jury has returned two indictments in the killing of a Kodiak resident in 2008. Chawn D. Summerall and Joshua R. Erickson were both indicted Wednesday on second degree murder and first degree assault charges in the killing of then-41-year-old Darrell Cavaness.

            An indictment handed down in June 2009 against Summerall in the killing was overturned by Superior Court Judge Fred Torrisi on June 1, 2010. In his decision Torrisi wrote that the indictment relied too heavily on hearsay evidence. That hearsay was comments made by Erickson to a Kodiak Police officer, who then related them to the grand jury. Erickson invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and refused to testify before the grand jury. Now, he is a co-defendant.

            Torrisi, a Dillingham judge, said evidence that Summerall was also hit with the likely murder weapon - a 45-inch length of wood - was withheld from the grand jury.

            Summerall and Erickson are accused of beating Cavaness into unconsciousness on the night of January 22, 2008, in a home on Natalia Way. Cavaness died in an Anchorage hospital a week later due to severe head injuries.

            Summerall is currently in prison on an unrelated felony DUI charge, but Erickson's whereabouts are unknown, and a warrant for his arrest has been issued.

            Summer in Kodiak means lots of fishermen and lots of cannery workers. The discussion at last night's regular Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meeting was what to do with young people coming into town looking for work who are totally unprepared for life on the island.

            Maggie Wall has more.

New Budgets in Effect with New Fiscal Year

            The first day of July may be the middle of summer in Alaska, but for many agencies and the state government, July 1st is the beginning of a new year.

            The start of Fiscal Year 2011 means state agencies have a new budget and funding for the next 12 months. Many non-profits and other organizations that get a lot of their funding from the state or municipal sources also ascribe to the July to June fiscal year.

            Both the Kodiak Island Borough and the City of Kodiak begin their new fiscal year on July 1st as well.

            When the Alaska Legislature meets in Juneau each January, one its prime task is to establish the budget for the coming fiscal year. So the fiscal year just starting is the one we heard so much talk about during and immediately after the legislative session.

            Many people who are not used to dealing with the state's 6-month-in-advance fiscal year have trouble keeping track.

But, it could be worse. The federal government's Fiscal Year 2011 runs from October 2010 through September 2011.

           And, in case you're wondering: Yes, Kodiak Public Broadcasting Corporation and KMXT begins its new fiscal year today (July 1st) as well.

           Coming up this week, at least one processor in the bay has instituted catch limits, the dungy fishery in Southeast is starting strong, but the same can't be said for gillnet salmon. And a new Frankenfish rears its ugly head. We had help this week from KDLG's Mike Mason in Dillingham, KFSK's Joe Viechnicki in Petersburg, and Deckboss Blogger Wesley Loy in Anchorage.
