          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.

         After almost two years of work, Kodiak’s New Skin Sewers group has finally finished their traditional Alutiiq caribou parka.  The final garment will make its public debut this Thursday at the Alutiiq Museum, but KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs was able to meet up with the sewers last week, as they put in the garment’s final stitches.

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.

Researcher Uses Mice to Track History

          Despite often being a household pest, mice may hold key information about Alaska’s historical past. That’s the theory of one undergraduate researcher at Cornell University in New York, and why she’s asking folks in Kodiak to help collect mice this fall.
           Camille Mangiaratti is using mouse DNA to track the history of colonization in Alaska.  She said mice are a well studied animal all around the world, and have traveled with humans for more than 12,000 years. Much like tracking ancestral DNA in people, Mangiaratti will use mice to see what DNA strands are present and from what countries.
            “So basically you can look for signatures in mouse DNA, in the mitochondria specifically, because these signatures sort of preserve themselves throughout time and we can basically use them as a genetic signal for the past – to look into the colonization history of the mice that traveled with the humans. So basically it tells us when people got there, and who got there and basically how successful these established communities were.”

Monday, 27 October 2014
Jay Barrett/KMXT
The Kodiak High School Bears volleyball team went 8-for-8 in pool play Friday at a huge tournament up in Anchorage and wound up finishing fifth in the Gold Bracket on Saturday.
The Bears downed Grace, North Pole, Service and Nikiski on a busy Friday, sweeping each school two games to none.
They had to turn around and play early on Saturday morning and defeated Service, only to fall in the next game to eventual champion South Anchorage. 
In the consolation bracket, the Bears fell to East Anchorage and were bumped from the double-elimination bracket.
Kodiak's Isabelle Riina was named to the all-tournament team.
