Residents attempting to repeal decorum ordinance
Several Kodiakans again spoke against the decorum in debate ordinance that the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly passed at its July 3 meeting. Four people spoke up at the meeting, using the three minutes allotted during public comment time. Three of them had also spoken on the topic at a July 10 work session. “I can understand why this body would pass such an ordinance,” said Aaron Williams. “I don’t believe someone ...

Giantism evolves in Ocean Depth and Cold
I have never heard of Werner Herzog before. However, when I was looking for a fitting quote to start this article with, it was his quote I found best suited: “What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.” I do not usually refer to any ocean creature as a monster, because I think that every life form has evolved to succesfully suit its habitat. I am always fas...

Most pressing is deficit spending that will deplete ou...

Confusing analysis
July 16, 2014 In a recent Letter-to-the-Editor, Professor J. Griffin [KoC professor of English] chooses to comment upon the recent Borough Assembly ordinance that restricts public speech at Borough meetings. I find his analysis confusing. First, he apparently accepts the Assembly’s description of the ordinance as the “Decorum in Debate” policy. Really? For as far as I can tell, the title is a deliberate misnomer. ...
