    At Monday night’s school board meeting, Superintendent Stewart McDonald reported that the school district’s new web site went live at the end of June.
    “We’re still populating it with content. There are some pages that will have many more things added to it as the year unfolds. I have quite a few pieces just on the superintendent’s page to add.”
    McDonald said the new website will allow more interaction between staff, teachers and parents.
    “What’s important about this new website is we have the ability to do an intranet. Where as our employees log in, eventually as parents will have access to log in. You’ll be able to see aspects of the district from that point of view of however you interact with the district. So it’s becoming a very functional tool for us.”
    McDonald said Destiny Fitzgerald worked with the school district to construct the web site. Its address is KIBSD.org.

           Clean up on the archipelago’s remote Tugidak Island is now underway. This is the second and final year of Kodiak Island Trails Network’s project to remove marine debris from the island, which is southwest of the southern tip of Kodiak Island. 
           Tom Pogson is the director of marine programs for Island Trails Network, or ITN, and has been on Tugidak for about two weeks now. He contacted KMXT via satellite phone and said so far this year’s clean up is going well.     
            “We decided that there was enough debris in the area that we cleaned last year and we re-cleaned that area in almost less than half the time and we’re now I think starting the second day of clean up into the new area.”   
            Last year ITN collected 130 super sacks worth of marine debris on Tugidak and Pogson said this summer they already have 65 bags after only seven days of clean up. The crew spent the first week on the island setting up camp and making sure everything was in working order, and last week volunteers and members of the Kodiak Wildlife Refuge’s Youth Conservation Corps made the trip south to participate in the first wave of debris removal.
             Pogson said the weather so far has been incredible, with only two days of rain in the past two weeks. On Friday a new group of volunteers left for the island, where Pogson said they’ll face a few different habitats and terrains that need cleaning.

    At last night’s Kodiak Island Borough School District Board of Education meeting, a contract was approved for a new principal for North Star Elementary School. The board unanimously approved a contract with Patricia Wilson of Virginia for just over $100,000 for the next year.
    The district’s Marilyn Davidson explained part of the process used to select Wilson for the position.
    “The North Star staff selected three people to be a part of this panel. And then the other three elementary principals joined me for the panel. When we interview we use the same set of questions for all interviews. So if it was the first interviews we did or the last interview we did, we used the same set of questions for every candidate.”
    She said a great number of applications were received for the position, and four or five were selected for interviews with the panel.
    “They were looking for experience with young children. They were looking for experience with elementary curriculum and instruction. They were looking for experience and background with special education. They were looking for experience with diverse populations, and Patricia Wilson was the candidate who came to us with all those qualifications.”
    Earlier in the meeting, Jeff Stewart was appointed as a temporary school board member, replacing Todd Hailey, who has left town. Stewart will serve until the October municipal elections when the seat will be up for grabs for a three-year term.

    A presentation about the National Defense Act of two years ago is the first item on the agenda at tonight’s Kodiak City Council work session.
    Jamie Fagan and Dana Carros, local members of People Against the National Defense Authorization Act, will offer the city a resolution entitled “Restoring Constitutional Governance of Kodiak.”
    The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 contains language members of PANDAA interpret as allowing the federal government to detain or kill American citizens without due process. Others disagree, saying the language in the Act only applies to terrorists.
    “This term terrorist is now being applied to anyone the government considers a threat,” says Dan Johnson, founder of the People Against the NDAA. He appeared on KMXT’s Talk of the Rock in May.
     “Let’s say you say I’ll never be a threat. I’ll never speak out politically, I’ll never say anything. How many wrong-door swat raids have we had in the United States? Five-thousand last year. What happens when it’s a wrong-door terrorist raid. What happens when it’s you that’s picked up and sent to Guantanamo Bay instead of the person they were going after?,” he said. “See, at one point each of us is going to want to speak up about something. And free speech is a cornerstone of our society. It’s something American has protected. And something we need to continue to protect. And Kodiak needs to continue to protect.”
    Fagan and Carros were invited to speak before the Kodiak City Council tonight by Councilmen Rich Walker and Randy Bishop.
    The work session starts at 7:30 tonight in the new Kodiak Public Library’s multi-purpose room.
