Build code that works for Kodiak
It seems we all can agree that the new proposed codes are overreaching and oppressive and if implemented will suffocate our community and our way of life. There is one portion that I have only heard comment on by only one person: subsistence. It is my understanding that if we go from rural to urban we will lose all our subsistence rights. Just the threat of this should have every person in this community speaking ...

Bears’ defense sweeps Moose
Charmaine Fabricante didn’t have any pre-game jitters before her first varsity start. And she didn’t have any in-game jitters either.

She started again on Saturday, and again Kodiak beat Palmer, this time 43-25. Fabricante waited her entire career to start a v...

Fish Factor: Loading up on sockeyes
Alaska seafood marketers are ramping up promotions and bankrolling a $1 global million media blitz to counteract a tough sockeye salmon market. Sockeyes are by far the most valuable salmon catch, often worth two-thirds of the value of Alaska’s entire salmon fishery. But last summer’s unexpected surge of reds left lots of inventory in freezers, and record U.S. imports of competing farmed salmon from Chile and Norwa...

Don’t blame oil tax reform for budget deficit
"Blaming oil tax reform for Alaska's current budget deficit is just plain wrong" Our budget deficit today is a result of low oil prices, low oil production and overspending, not oil tax reform. A group of Native leaders, unions, businessmen and thousands of Alaskans who care deeply about Alaska's long-term economic future led a three-year campaign to reform oil taxes to stop the decline of oil production. We spent...
