Barry Colflesh walked around the Bear Valley Golf Course clubhouse with a little extra pep in his step Tuesday afternoon. It was 58 degrees and golfers were crawling around the course enjoying the cloudless Kodiak day. “I’ve been here since the middle of March and this is the first day we have had more sunshine than rain,” joked Colflesh, the course’s new temporary manager for the 2015 season.
