Prep hoops: Kodiak boys split against Kenai
Two different Kodiak boys basketball teams showed up at Kenai — one that lost 52-38 on Friday and one that won 68-26 on Saturday.  What explains the 56-point swing between the two Northern Lights Conference games? “It was just a whole different attitude,” Kodiak coach David Anderson said. “I think the kids were embarrassed about the loss and came out ready to play.” Kodiak led 35-7 at the half of Saturday’s game, ...

Outdoor Kodiak: Winter is for reloading

While many hunters I know reload their ammunition, I’m always surprised many more don’t. ...

It wasn’t pretty, but Kodiak’s girls are in the record books. The Bears zoomed to a 19-4 lead and held off a feisty Kenai squad for a 43-35 Northern Lights Conference basketball victory Friday evening at Kodiak High.

Halibut catch limits cut
The International Pacific Halibut Commission has cut halibut quotas for fishermen across the North Pacific Ocean, but not as much as feared by fishermen. On Friday, the IPHC voted 5-1 in favor of 2013 quotas 7 percent less than last year’s. The decrease is much less than the 30 percent cut many had been expecting at the start of the meeting. “We want to get down and be conservative, but we also want to respect tha...
