Drugs, alcohol, shopping fill God-shaped hole
A lot of good things have been said about the drug forum last week. As a former addictions counselor, as well as a recovering alcoholic, I had a lot of interest in the forum, with all of its implications for stopping the harmful effects of drugs on our community. Unfortunately, it looked like I was coming down with Round 4 of the Kodiak Krud, so I stayed away as a courtesy to all who attended. (It turned out to be...

Mike Hautala, Kodiak’s first-year wrestling coach, describes his team as young. Young might be an understatement as the team boasts 10 freshmen, half of them potentially being in the Bears’ starting lineup. “We are heavy in freshmen,” Hautala said. “We are going to take a couple beat downs this year, but as the year improves we are going to get better.” The Bears bring back only two state placers — Russell Dela Cr...

TEEING OFF: Soaking up the playoffs
The 2015 Major League Baseball playoffs have been thoroughly entertaining. So much so that getting work done has been nearly impossible. I got absolutely nothing accomplished during a 53-minute window Wednesday afternoon. Game 5 of the American League Divisional Series between Toronto and Texas was the best non-Seattle baseball game I have seen. Of course, the best game that I have ever seen goes to the 1995 ALDS ...

Who had time to take the road up the hill to get a better look at the historic Transfiguration of Our Lord Orthodox Church in Ninilchik? But last fall, my wife, Kathy, our friend, Gloria, and I decided to make time. After photographing the church, we drove to the old settlement ...
