Kodiak Tapestry: Work, play balance for Salmon Barries
What’s so good about this summer’s Kodiak Island salmon season, a season that has been called “dismal,” “abysmal,” one of the worst on record? Barry Rosenkranz and his crew of the fishing vessel Salmon Barry say that there were a lot of bright spots. “It was a really good year,” said Barry. There is more to a fishing season than the catching, the deliveries, breakdowns, closures (lots of them this year) poor price...

Council to hear about taxing pot, alcohol
City of Kodiak finance director Kelly Mayes will give the third of four presentations on city revenue generation possibilities at the city council work session Tuesday evening, this time focusing on alternative tax revenue sources. “I feel like that, in itself, deserves its own special time frame, because you can really kind of get into the details of all kinds of revenue sources,” Mayes told council in July at th...

Byler new trial ruling postponed
Attorneys for the United States have an extra two weeks to respond to Wild Alaskan owner Darren Byler’s motion for a new trial. Byler’s attorney filed a motion on Aug. 22 asking for a new trial.

Defense powers Kodiak to 3-0 start
Ben Watkins knows a thing or two about good defenses. He was on one a decade ago. In 2006, Kodiak pitched five shutouts and allowed only 7.9 points per game. The unit was dominating in racking up a program-best 8-2 record — both losses coming to Soldotna, 14-13 and 29-20 in the small-school state championship game. Now Watkins is in charge of a defense that has Kodiak at 3-0 and ranked third in the medium-small sc...

Bersin has a day at Bartlett meet
Marcus Dunbar double-checked last week’s Bartlett State Preview Meet results when he saw his boys’ team was listed in 10th place. Who could blame him? It was an unfamiliar place for Kodiak, one of the state’s best cross country programs over the last 14 years. “I’m still kind of scratching my head on what is going on with the boys,” said Dunbar Wednesday afternoon. “I’m hoping it was a one-week kind of fluke deal ...

Pigskin Picks: Aiming to rebound after Week 3
I must have made the football gods mad. After sporting a sparkling Week 2 record, I came back down to earth with an 8-5 mark in Week 3. Simply unacceptable. Last week’s lackluster performance dropped my overall record to 30-11, for a .731 win percentage. One neat thing did happen last week — Eagle River, a second-year member of the Northern Lights Conference, won its first game in three years. If you remember, I p...

Word and Deed: Captains and generals all
No discipline seems pleasant at the time but painful later on, however it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11 When I was a youngster two, of my favorite American heroes were Captain American and Gen. George Washington. In recent years I’ve gained a new quote from the captain in the movie “Winter Soldier.” “The price of freedom is high, it always has be...
