Amazing Nature: Science competition team tackles ocean acidification
Once again I find myself in classrooms at Kodiak Middle School talking about ocean acidification. The causes and background, the chemistry, and the effects on shell building animals and why it all matters for us in Kodiak are topics we discuss and explore with lectures and hands-on experiments. Due to a curriculum change I get to teach about ocean acidification in two grade levels this year; last year we learned a...

Thoughts from a hike: From where comes virtue?
Were you out Monday at all? It was one of the glorious Kodiak days, when the sun is shining, the sky is brilliant blue and the ocean glisten as the sun's rays make waves and foam look alive. If you were working, and looking outside enviously, at least you have a window. And a job. Many Saturdays, as I procrastinate on my sermon, I am envying people who have weekends off. Two days in a row. But I digress. So, it wa...

Double zero: Jemuel Manglaus excels on the court
It takes a special kind of player to wear double zero. Kodiak senior Jemuel Mangalus fits the bill. “I picked the number out for him when I put him on the team,” KHS boys basketball coach David Anderson said. “I said, ‘you look like a double zero,’ and he went, ‘what?’ It is just a number that is different.” It is so unusual of a jersey number that only 28 players in the history of the National Basketball Associat...
