LeDoux will not disappoint
To the Editor, I am excited to see so many competent candidates for the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly and am confident a strong assembly will be the end result. Although I have never before written a letter of support for any candidate, I feel compelled to do so now. I want to urge voters to seriously consider Larry LeDoux for the assembly. I have known Larry for over 20 years, during many of which I had the good...

Trawl fleet should clean up their mess
Letter to the Editor, For years we've been told that the massive waste of halibut, crab, king salmon, small cod and pollock is an unavoidable consequence of trawling. During the February 1997 meeting of the NPFMC a representative from the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans described how they reduced halibut bycatch mortality from 2,000,000 pounds to under 300,000 pounds in one year without sacrificing a s...

Kaplan brings a balance to the assembly
To the Editor, I recommend that we all vote for David Kaplan for the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly.

'Harmful fish management makes no sense'
To the Editor, Starting Oct. 6, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council meets in Anchorage on the continuing dispute of Gulf of Alaska Trawl Bycatch Management. Trawlers want to privatize public groundfish resources, because it means they could collect quota lease fees of up to 70 percent without working aboard the boats where the quotas are caught. That just takes money from captains and crewmen who might sp...

Guest Opinion: CFA's not good for Kodiak
The Kodiak Fisheries Work Group recently drafted a letter representing the views of the "community" to the North Pacific Fishery Management Council supporting the formation of groups called Community Fishing Associations and giving quota share allocations to these groups. As someone who has fished out of Kodiak for 25 years, lived in Kodiak for 21 years and raised a family here, I do not support this. Community Fi...

Kodiak boys look to claim first state cross country title since 2008
Levi Fried feels like he owes Kodiak High School a state title. In 2012, as a sophomore, Fried was part of a Kodiak boys cross country team talented enough to win a state championship. But a mid-season hip injury derailed Fried, and he finished 23rd at the state meet, while the team — behind first- and second-place finishes from Levi Thomet and Cole Christiansen — placed third, a mere 10 points behind champion Wes...
