Guest Opinion: Fix ordinance to protect plinking
The Kodiak City Council will soon hold a public hearing on proposed Ordinance No. 1359. If adopted, the ordinance will prohibit the discharge of firearms and other dangerous weapons in the city. This ordinance was brought forward due to hunting activities taking place in heavily used recreational areas within the city limits. One fairly recent example was the shooting of a deer with a firearm on Near Island in 201...

You forgot to outlaw my slingshot
To the editor: This letter is once again in response to the city overreacting, then over-thinking a deer that was harvested on near island. I think back to when one of the city council suggested we put a tram up Pillar Mountain. Then they banned fishing in the boat harbor.

Do most city workers cost as much as claimed?
To the city council: Your information to the public, posted in your ad concerning Proposition 1 on Sept. 19, is somewhat deceptive. To simply state the average city employee has an hourly wage and benefit cost of $60.85 is probably a fact, albeit deceptive in its implications. What appears to be misleading is the failure to state this amount is the current average hourly wage for which classification of employees....
