Outdoor Kodiak: Silvers swimming into giant pink gap
An interesting advantage is emerging as the pink salmon are slow to return and their numbers are small. The early silver salmon are easier to catch! I can’t say if there are more silvers arriving early this year. Each year some arrive early right along with the pink salmon, but their numbers are obscured by the hordes of voracious pinks. With the low numbers of slashing pink salmon mouths, the silvers the are cert...

GARDEN GATE: Don’t give gray mold spores more chances
Finding a green tomato laying on the ground in the hoophouse was my first clue that something was in the air. Something was in the air alright: mold.

Found on a wide range of plants (too many to list), gray mold (Botrytis cinerea) is...

The defense authored a dominating performance in the Bears’ 14-0 nonconference football victory over Houston Friday night at Joe Floyd Track and Field. The D smothered Houston, limiting the former member of the Northern Lights Conference to 108 y...

The decision on purchasing trees to plant on burned and logged borough-owned land drew more discussion Thursday in advance of the decision on a contract for tree saplings at the next meeting. At the work session, several assembly members suggested the contract be coupled with one for the planting. “I would presume that whoever we hire to put the trees in the ground, that part of their contract would include … that...
