Ostrander sets new mark at Fort Abercrombie
The morning before every cross country meet, Kenai’s Allie Ostrander eats a bowl of Wheaties. For extra flavor, she adds a banana. “Probably any old cereal would do, but I like the box. It says ‘breakfast of champions’ — it puts me in the race zone,” she said. Ostrander must have had an extra bowl of Wheaties Friday morning, because she was locked in as she zoomed through Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park at ...

Kodiak stumbles at Kenai
Kodiak’s chances at qualifying for the medium-school football playoffs dwindled Saturday on the Kenai Peninsula. Kenai routed Kodiak, 56-8, in an important Northern Lights Conference game at Ed Hollier Field. The loss dropped the Bears to 1-1 in the NLC (1-2 overall) and made it harder for Kodiak to advance to the postseason for the third consecutive season. Kodiak is not eliminated, but will most likely have to b...

Outdoor Kodiak: Mooching madness
I’ve been hearing lots of trollers moan about the difficulty in locating and catching silvers this fall. I have to admit that I’m not seeing many jumpers in the bays or offshore, but does that really mean there aren’t many silvers around? When we’ve trolled for silvers in the usual ways and places using spoons or hoochies at around 3.5 mph near the surface, we haven’t had much luck. But I found an important clue l...

Garden Gate: Phenols boost the immune system
What do onions, rhubarb and parsley have in common? For one thing, they are cool-hardy plants and thrive Kodiak’s climate. So that’s the basic correlations. I recently learned something very important about these plants, thanks to our friend Bruce. Bruce, a frequent visitor to our home from Aberdeen, Washington, sauntered into the kitchen recently in need of a cup of Lipton. Tea in hand, he set an open paperback b...

Fish Factor: Boycotting Russia seafood
If Russia won’t buy seafood from the US, we won’t buy seafood from them. That’s the gauntlet being thrown down by Alaska’s Congressional Delegation to retaliate against Russia’s yearlong ban on food products from the US and several nations. In a letter to President Obama spurred on by Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the Delegation wrote: “Our purpose here is to ask that your Administration respond to the Russian action with ...

Kaplan not a good choice for the Borough
To the Editor, We have a lot of people running for the Borough Assembly, so do not vote for Dave Kaplan. He has done nothing for us the whole time he has been on the assembly. He does not have any ambition, and loves to get paid by the Borough and not have to do anything. He also loves all the freebies and gets free travel. The others who are running for the assembly are go-getters, so choose from them. Lorna Arndt
