TEEING OFF: Soaking up the playoffs
The 2015 Major League Baseball playoffs have been thoroughly entertaining. So much so that getting work done has been nearly impossible. I got absolutely nothing accomplished during a 53-minute window Wednesday afternoon. Game 5 of the American League Divisional Series between Toronto and Texas was the best non-Seattle baseball game I have seen. Of course, the best game that I have ever seen goes to the 1995 ALDS ...

But last fall, my wife, Kathy, our friend, Gloria, and I decided to make time. After photographing the church, we drove to the old settlement ...

KIBSD adding staff to rural schools
In stark contrast with most of Alaska’s rural schools, a few rural schools on Kodiak Island are showing student increases and thus a need for more teachers.

We had some important words circling the news last week. A big one, which we hear often, was “assembly,” for two reasons: the local election and the discussions over the proposed easement at Termination Point. “Assembly” is a fascinating word full of all sorts of complexities. Deriving from the French verb “assemble,” which appeared around the 14th century, “assembly” plainly means in our modern coinage a gatherin...

KHS wrestling home opener cancelled
Mike Hautala’s first season as the Kodiak High School wrestling coach is not starting the way he had hoped. The coach was forced to cancel this weekend’s season-opening Robin Hervey Tournament because East Anchorage and Dimond do not have enough wrestlers to bring to the island.
