Senior Life: Valentine's Day at the Center
At noon Friday, Feb. 13, the senior center will host one of the largest events of the year, the Valentine’s Day party, when we honor everyone 80 and older. Years ago turning 80 and continuing to live on Kodiak Island was a rarity. Now it is not, as retirees choose to stay here and baby boomers are bringing their parents here. Kodiak should be proud of the number of people 60 and older (the Older American Act defin...

Warming up Barrow
Sending more than 100 warm winter coats for children without adequate winter gear in Barrow took the coordination of Rotary clubs across Alaska. With a mild winter so far in Kodiak, many students go to school in jackets or sweatshirts, but in Barrow, having a warm winter coat is required to go to school, said Sandy Solenberger, who recently moved back to Kodiak with her husband, Tom, after living in Barrow. In Bar...

Remember Lola Harvey, the Grand Dame of Kodiak
Lola Harvey was Kodiak; is Kodiak; will forever be Kodiak to me. They say that once you visit Alaska you can truly never fully leave. I can certainly say that Kodiak has had affect on me — and I knew it would be my pleasant fate the moment I was introduced to Lola Harvey. I met her soon after coming on board as the KICVB’s new executive director in 1987. Physically I towered over the feisty, diminutive, kamlaika-c...

Enough is enough: Obama violated the letter and spirit of Statehood Compact
Like many Alaskans, I remember the excitement in the air when Alaska became the 49th state in the Union in 1959. We had achieved our long-held dream of self-governance. Since that time, we have worked to become increasingly self-reliant, and to steward our resources for the long-term benefit of our people. The Alaska Statehood Compact established the conditions for our entry. Through the compact, Alaska was grante...

Garden Gate: Seedlings require more light than mature plants
For today’s column, I want you to think like a seedling, much like I tell my photography students to think like a camera. First, let’s talk a little about how life can seem overly complicated and busy, even in the middle of an Alaskan winter, and then I’ll share how it relates to seed-starting. Sometimes it feels like we try to squeeze as many tasks as possible into a limited span of time and, by doing so, we’ve a...

Fried, Small best in the NLC
Kodiak wrestlers Jay-Ar Small and Levi Fried stood atop the podium at the conclusion of the Northern Lights Conference Championships Saturday in Soldotna. Small, a senior, won his first conference title by outlasting Colony’s Caleb Hopkins, 6-1, in the 126-pound championship match. “It was a closer match than that,” Kodiak coach Pat Costello said. “He did a good job in staying in the match and never lossing focus....

Bears fall at home
What a difference a season makes. Last year, Kodiak’s boys basketball team shocked Colony on its homecourt three times en route to claiming the program’s first Northern Lights Conference title in more than a decade. This year, the Knights got their revenge. Third-ranked Colony swept Kodiak on its homecourt, taking Friday’s game 57-48 and Saturday’s contest 59-30 in a pair of NLC games. “It was unfortunate that we ...
