Water supply holds steady
Kodiak’s water supply has held steady over the weekend in spite of local fish processing plants starting operations for the Pollack opening. “This is the best it’s been for several days,” said Mark Kozak, public works director. “The rain we have gotten has balanced out the water usage by the processors.” As of Thursday Oct. 1, water level for Monashka Reservoir was down 38 inches below the pre-2003 spillway and as...

Coffee industry growing
With roughly eight businesses on Kodiak Island available to get a cup of joe any given day, one would think that might be too many for an island of 13,000 people. But, the Alaska Department of Labor is saying state coffee shops are one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy hiring 1,900 new employees last year with more expected the coming year. Anchorage is now second nationally for the number of coffee ou...

When Barrow’s Travis Adams first looked at the high school football schedule, he said he got excited about returning to Kodiak.

Adams, Barrow’s elusive sophomore quarterback, rushed for a game-high 160 yards and one touchdown in his team’s 14-0 victory over Kodiak Saturday at Joe Floyd Track ...

Outdoor Kodiak: Late silvers
The crowds of silver salmon anglers have thinned noticeably, even as numbers of fish mount daily. You might already have put your gear away, but those are very good reasons to retrieve it from storage. This has been a really odd year for silvers, between the low water, small fish size, and large numbers of fish. It’s not unusual to hear tales of 20, 30, even 40 silvers caught and released in a day! I tend to lose ...
