            Now that computers speeds don't change much from month to month any more, the latest technological must-have is high-speed Internet. The Kodiak Island School District is no different. The administration is asking the school board to expend about 56-hundred dollars more per year to boost the bandwidth from 8 megabits to 10 megabits per second. A megabit is one million bits. The fastest dial-up modems of old maxed out at 56-thousand bits. High-speed Internet in the home or a small business would likely be 1-megabit in speed.

            Andy Ozols, the technology supervisor for the district, says the need for bandwidth increases constantly.

          The Rasmuson Foundation has supported Alaska non-profit organizations in the pursuit of their goals since 1955. The foundation places particular emphasis on organizations that demonstrate strong leadership, clarity of purpose and cautious use of resources. On Monday, the organization's president gave a presentation at KANA, saying that because of the economic downturn and other factors, funding was down last year and will be even lower again this year.

Diane Kaplan is president of the Rasmuson Foundation. She said the foundation expects to fund roughly the same number of projects it has in the past, but that total dollar amounts will be down, from an average award of about 22-thousand dollars to about 15-thousand per project. She also said that losing former Senator Ted Stevens, the uncertain nature of oil prices and the volatility of the stock market play a role.
