CHASING HISTORY: Thomet eyes state records
At 6-foot-1, Keith Osowski towers over Levi Thomet. There is no question that Osowski would school Thomet on the basketball court. But, when it comes to running it is Thomet that is doing the schooling. “My stride is two times longer than his, but he still goes faster,” Osowski jokingly said. Thomet has proven that size doesn’t matter when it comes to running, as the 5-foot-7, 132-pound Kodiak senior is about to w...

COASTAL FORAGER: Dining with an enemy named Nettles

And my hatred runs deep. I've been on the wrong end of a nettle leaf more than a few times thanks to my affinity for wearing shorts all summer as I gallivant around the forest. Everything in my experience taught me to skirt nettles...
