Skiing across the raw, open landscape of the Seward Peninsula a few weeks ago, my friends and I dreamed of getting out of a big wind and into the tub at Serpentine Hot Springs. Although none of us had been there, we all recognized the Serpentine valley by black tors guarding the surrounding hillsides. With yellowish light and silky lenticular clouds as a backdrop, the landscape had a not-of-this-Earth feel. If it ...

Outdoor Kodiak: Whales and eagles but no bears (oh, my!)
My wife and I had celebrated a small weather break with a stroll along the top of sea cliffs after dinner. Looking down below us we noticed three sea otters alongside a reef. That wasn’t unusual, because we see them feeding there on almost every visit. But this time they were absolutely still, not moving a muscle and within easy reach of the exposed rocks.

Hazardous to irony
Dear Editor, This is somewhat ironic. In May, the Navy will conduct inspections offshore from Kodiak, searching for WWII-related ordnance that might be hazardous. In June, the Navy will conduct training, depositing a few hundred thousand pounds of materials, some hazardous, into waters offshore from Kodiak and other coastal communities. — Tom Lance, Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak

Officials ponder what to do with Chirikof Island's cattle
More than 11 years ago, the cattle on a remote island south of Kodiak became a national cause célèbre, when a federal agency ordered their removal as an invasive species and a rancher made an ill-fated attempt to bring them to market. On Monday, representatives of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge, the agency that administers Chirikof Island, offered an update to a handful of local residents at the Kodi...

Kodiak baseball pushes win streak to four
It was hard for Giovanni Martinez not to flash his trademark smile after being put on the mound in the fifth inning of a tied game with the bases loaded and nobody out. He walked off the field five pitches later flashing his pearly whites and the game still knotted at 2. Martinez’s Houdini act proved to be the pivotal point in Kodiak’s 8-5 Southcentral Conference baseball victory over Soldotna on Friday at Baranof...
