MEASURING UP: Kodiak seeks first volleyball state title
Glance at a Kodiak High School volleyball program and you will notice something missing — the height of the players.

Week in Words: Risqué fish; listening out loud
We learned this week that everything you thought you knew about cod is probably wrong. That cod are not the monocle-wearing, cane-strutting sophisticates that grace the ocean deep. OK. I admit it. All I knew about cod came from my extensive knowledge of the Naboombu Lagoon in the Disney film “Bedknobs and Broomsticks.” It turns out, though, that cod do not speak with a British accent.

State pays bigger bonuses to execs of profitless AAC
To the editor: In the Nov. 5 Kodiak Daily Mirror article “AAC to send team to New Zealand for contract,” AAC president Craig Campbell stated, “I’m trying very hard to make this a commercial operation, not a government operation,” in reference to the AAC and Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska (former Kodiak Launch Complex). I find his statement ironic considering that Sen. Dan Sullivan is working very hard in Congres...
