Teeing Off: Brady should get punished
I’m not buying it, and you shouldn’t either. Gizmo and I sat on the couch Thursday and watched New England quarterback Tom Brady talk to the media about Deflategate for 30 minutes. The more Brady talked, the more upset Gizmo got. At one point I thought Gizzy was going to grrrrrr Mr. Brady of the podium. He can sniff out a cheater with the best of them. I was going to grrrrrr Brady myself because I picked him over ...

Against the anti-Agenda 21 conspiracy in Kodiak
During the several weeks prior to the Jan. 12 meeting of the Borough planning and zoning commission, there were numerous letters written to the local paper. The common theme — the code update project was an “insult” to the community because it was derived from Agenda 21. The anti-Agenda 21 conspiracists are wrong. Here’s why. Agenda 21 is a planning document that was meant to help local communities worldwide with ...

Tapestry: Schactler recalls trapping days
PHOTOS: BRUCE SCHACTLER as a young trapper (Photo Courtesy Bruce Schactler) Last December an old friend made a comment that I’ll never forget: “Something’s missing. Kodiak doesn’t have the vibrancy and pizazz it once had.” I had to agree. Although Kodiak is still an exciting, vibrant place to live in, it has lost some of the character it had 30 years ago. Why? Maybe it’s because all of the colorful characters have...

Kodiak ESS wins opener
For the past month, Damian Bennett has been Ouzinkie’s one-man basketball team. Practices consisted mostly of running. “It was just me and my village coach,” Bennett said.

The sophomore scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half to lead the Ravens to a 46-29 Peninsula Conferenc...

Minn. zoo euthanizes ailing Kodiak bear
Trouble spelled trouble for Phoebe, a 28-year-old Kodiak brown bear. But what gave her bigger problem was her poor health. Phoebe, who lived nearly her entire life at Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth, Minn., was euthanized Tuesday after struggling for seven months with arthritis, said Dr. Louise Beyea, the zoo’s veterinarian. “The staff was concerned about being able to maintain her quality of life at an acceptable lev...

Stage and Screen: 'The Imitation Game' is the real thing
“The Imitation Game” (2014) — so much to say — so little space in which to say it. Most films offer only one, perhaps two, layers of storyline. By my count there are at least five layers of storyline imbedded in this remarkable motion picture. The most obvious layer being the ground-breaking British project to crack the apparently impregnable WWII German Enigma Code. The Enigma Code allowed Germany to transmit com...
