Multi-use path is a luxury
To the Editor: The idea of a multi-use path is nice but not a nice idea now. It's neither a priority nor a necessity. If Juneau can tighten its financial belt, why can't the city of Kodiak? This requested project by some folks is a luxury that neither the city nor the taxpayers can afford. The 10' wide, 1.3-mile path would commence at Pier 2 on Shelikof Ave. and terminate at Deadman's Curve. The city needs to stop...

Garden Gate: Collecting free flowers
If you like the idea of free flowers, listen up. This is the best time of year for starting a fresh batch of geraniums. By snipping a few cuttings from your, or a friend’s overwintered plant, you’ll be rewarded with cheerful displays of pink, white, salmon or red flowers. Before you grab a pair of shears and go knocking on your neighbor’s door though, mentally prepare yourself. Not all geraniums come through winte...
