Boys repeat as 4A champions; Pillans voted athlete of meet
After finishing the 1,600-meter relay — the final event of the 4A state track and field championships — Kodiak’s Billy Alcaide collapsed on the ground with baton in hand.

Garden Gate: Thank mild winter for rat explosion
It was beyond embarrassing. Years ago, during the summer garden tour, I was talking to a guest about growing celery (or was it poppies?), when suddenly she looked away from me and then lowered her voice. “Marion, an R-A-T just ran across your lawn.” After three years of non-winters, reports of rat problems around Kodiak have exploded. “Last year the problem was moderate. This year it’s tremendous,” says B. J. John...
