Blessing from the Katinas set for Wilson Auditorium
Disc jockey Marc Ignacio and Kodiak Christian Fellowship pastor, Pisa Faumui, have a lot in common. Both are jovial men who love music, love to help people and thrive on getting those people together for worship, entertainment and fellowship. And both thrive on the Christian sense of unity. “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity,” said Faumui, quoting Psalm 133:1. That unit...

Leisnoi: The Interview
Last week, the Daily Mirror ran a story about public sentiment on logging in Chiniak by Lesnoi Inc. and its partner, A-1 Timber Consultants. Earlier this week some of Leisnoi’s top officials — CEO Von Veeh, Board President Debbie Lukin and Director of Operations Jay Baldwin — stopped by the Daily Mirror’s offices for a 30-minute conversation.  The Mirror is printing a large part of that discussion, edited for spac...

Throwers look to score big at state meet

His surprise performance has put Pillan...

Kodiak baseball hands Wasilla first loss of season
Kodiak used a near no-hitter and small ball to end Wasilla’s perfect season. Jakob Arnold fired a one-hitter and the Bears scratched across enough runs to hand Wasilla its first loss of the year, 4-2, in a Southcentral Conference baseball game Thursday evening at Baranof Field. “This is a good win,” Kodiak coach James Arnold said. “I think it will pay off next week more than it will this weekend. Yes, we got the N...

Where does this leave Leisnoi shareholders?
Dear Editor, I was 18 years old when the ANCSA was passed. I am now 61 years old and most of the original shareholders have passed on. There are still opportunities for the Board of Leisnoi to provide something for the use and benefit of each shareholder besides the devastation of and clear-cutting of Chiniak. Our Annual Shareholder report tells us that there is no further money to be distributed in order to maint...

carelessness causing brush fires
To the editor:   Recently, there has been numerous brush fires popping up throughout the state and I am concerned for Kodiak. I have observed many people throwing cigarettes out of their vehicles while driving down the road and I wonder if they have given thought to how their actions may start a fire contributing to the loss of a house, business or personal property. With Memorial Day weekend coming up and the sta...

To the editor, Some of us are aware of the incredible spending that goes on here in Kodiak. Referencing the luxury boat tours and trespassing in Wednesday's Mirror — we are seeing the same thing going on locally as well. But we are debtors to the borough and the city. They pretty much think they can do as they wish. In this case I define “debtor” as someone who has not had a mortgage payment in decades but is now ...

Alutiiq Word of the Week Lesson 16:47 
Itgaq (Literally, “foot”) – Flipper Gui wiinam itgai pingaktaanka. – I always like the sea lion’s feet. Sea mammals propel themselves through Alaska’s coastal waters with strong, sleek flippers. Flippers not only help animals swim, they can be important tools for exiting the water and moving on land. Seal and sea lion flippers, for example, have a tough rubbery surface that keeps the animal from sliding on slipper...
