Friday hoops roundup
Kodiak nearly picked up a marquee victory Friday against Wasilla. Instead, too many missed opportunities cost the Bears in a 35-30 loss to the Warriors in a Northern Lights Conference boys basketball game at KHS. Senior Jemuel Mangalus supplied the bulk of Kodiak's offense, scoring 20 of the team's 30 points. Down by as many as 12 in the first half, the Bears clawed back and pulled to within 33-30 on a Billy Alcai...

Researchers discover increases in sterility in Kodiak Sitka deer
I've hunted deer in the Kodiak Archipelago since 1967. I soon discovered venison here to be the finest I had ever eaten. For 47 years it has been a major part of my family's nutrition. In 1994, I sighted and later shot an abnormal buck. This animal had antlers still in the velvet in late November and had grown several non-typical points near the bases. This buck had the body conformation of a doe and had no testic...

Due to a curriculum change I get to teach about ocean acidification in two grade levels this year; last year we learned a...

If you were working, and looking outside enviously, at least you have a window. And a job. Many Saturdays, as I procrastinate on my sermon, I am envying people who have weekends off. Two days in a row. But I digress. So, it wa...

They preferred death by sword and crucifixion to safety, se...
