Teeing Off: An end to the season
I’m back. You probably didn’t even realize I was gone. Kudos to Drew Herman for doing such a bang-up job while I played taxi driver to 11 teenage baseball players in Anchorage. I’m now ready for a vacation to recoup from vacation. The dogs — Gizmo and Pepper Jack — certainly knew I was gone. They missed their extended walks during the 10 days I was out-of-town finishing up the American Legion baseball season. This...

AMAZING NATURE: Teachers, sand from far away in Old Harbor
Two weeks ago was the hottest week of the year in Old Harbor and the week of the tribe’s youth environmental camp. With a huge amount of planning and the help of four wonderful teachers, the week was packed with science, art, environmental safety and play activities.

WORD AND DEED: Path made smooth with help from above
Call to me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3 In my walk of faith, this verse of Scripture shines as a light of hope on my path. Every day we are presented with challenges. Throughout the day we react to those challenges sometimes well, sometimes not so well. How we respond or deal with people and circumstances reflects the fruits of the Spirit in us. There is...

Humayun Khan, to the war in Iraq in 2004. And now they’ve set the Trump aflame with some goading and baiting. Often, when I hear the phrase “gold star,” I think about school and those cute little gold star stickers we would get on our reading charts. ...

Derby winner counts blessings
Large fish were in short supply, so the grand prize winner of the 2016 Kodiak Association of Charterboat Operators King Salmon Derby was a 28 1/2-inch fish. Because no fish more than 45 pounds were entered, the three top prizes were awarded by drawing, and Mike Olsen walked away with $5,000. “I knew I had a chance, because the organization was a little different this year,” Olsen said shortly after he was announce...
