Arnold takes charge of KHS baseball
The thought of becoming a high school baseball coach never crossed James Arnold’s mind until an encounter with Rick Langfitt in 2009. At the time, Langfitt was Kodiak High School’s head baseball coach and Arnold was a Little League coach.

As I sat contemplating the likelihood that every student was plotting my social demise, a woman strode toward my ta...

The same could be said for the Soldotna Stars girls’ basketball team. Soldotna went into the week undefeated and came out of it with three straight losses on consecutive nights to Colony, Palmer and Wasilla. Ouch. The first f...
