Kodiak swims past Palmer
The Kodiak girls swimming and diving team’s quest to regain Region III supremacy took a big blow before Friday’s season-opener against Palmer. Hours before the meet at the Kodiak Community Swimming Pool, sophomore Devon Cummiskey broke her right tibia, an accident that happened while she was walking at a park, said coach John Lindquist. “It broke loose right at the growth plate, so it is really serious,” the coach...

PIGSKIN PICKS: Ushering in Week 3
Madden 17 hit stores this week. Normally, I would have picked up a copy by now, but my XBox is collecting dust in the bedroom. Sad. Since the addition of Gizmo and Pepper Jack, I don’t have any time to game. The pups constantly want to go for walks. Pepper Jack is fascinated with mud puddles, while Gizmo is afraid of anything that moves. When I’m not walking the two, I’m working, working out or watching the Marine...

MILESTONE MAN: Keplinger scored Kodiak's first varsity home and away touchdowns
On an overcast August evening, minutes after the conclusion of a Kodiak High School football practice, Zach Keplinger pointed to the north end zone, the spot where he scored the program’s first home varsity touchdown in 2003.
