19th annual holiday market begins today
In his day job, Mark Witteveen works as a marine biologist. His spare time is also spent working on fish, but these don’t have scales or swim in the sea — they’re made of steel. Witteveen, a metal sculptor, is one of 10 artists who will be featured at this weekend’s 19th annual holiday market in the Best Western Kodiak Inn’s Harbor Room. The market, which runs 4-8 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, is a b...

Perspective: Dealing with dengue fever
If this column seems muddled, please blame dengue fever. For the last seven days it’s pounded its way through my body, starting with shakes and high fevers, progressing to blinding headaches and chills, itchy skin, weakness, and general misery. If it grabbed a few brain cells on its trip through my head region, I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s been a long week, and my bed and I have been inseparable for all of it. Le...

Disappointed in KDM's use of photo of dead bear
To the Editor: Kodiak brown bears are part of the culture of this island. I was disappointed to see a picture of the bear killed in Tuesday's edition of the Kodiak Daily Mirror, hanging upside down from a forklift. It was done in very poor taste. A decent photo could have been used, or if one wasn't available, none would have been better. I do understand there are times when a bear may have to be killed in defense...
