TEEING OFF: Gizmo's letter to Santa
Dear big man in a red suit, Remember me? I scribbled you a letter last Christmas. By the way, it was a dogrrific day. Mommy got me a stocking crammed full of treats, while daddy added to my collection of squeaky toys. In case you don’t remember me, I’m a pint-sized fluffy white dog with a smushed in face — sometimes when I wake up I have snot bubbles coming out of my tiny nose. I had the pleasure of meeting you th...

TEEING OFF: Wilson has played his way into MVP race
It has come to my attention that small dogs do not appreciate inclement weather. It has been a hassle getting Gizmo and Pepper Jack to do their business outside this past week. When I open the door, and both dogs see the frightful conditions awaiting them, they turn into statues. I don’t blame them. Needless to say, the snow and ice blanketing the Kodiak roads made morning and lunchtime walks an adventure. While t...

TEEING OFF: A new sport debuts at Kodiak High School
Kudos to those who spotted the goof in Thursday’s paper. You are a superstar proofreader. Grab yourself a cookie from the cookie jar. If you missed the mistake, and I don’t know how you did, flip to Page 8. I’m glad I was able to provide you with a laugh. Heck, even I got a chuckle out of it. For the online readers, I ran three photos of the Kodiak High School girls basketball team practicing. In the cutline, I ty...

Longtime Kodiak resident finds footing in racehorse business
Duane Freeman will tell you that owning racehorses is like playing the lottery — you lose more than you win. After years of being in the business, Freeman finally hit the jackpot.

The trip to victory circle came with a payout of $108,300. “You really have to be an optimist to be in t...
