NLC Power Rankings: Indiana team booted for being too good
Another weird piece of news regarding high school basketball has hit the Internet: a girls high school basketball team in Indiana got kicked out of a league for being too good. Yes, too good.

Trying to whitewash racism
A young friend of the family, a few days ago, told me out of the blue that only white people can be racist.

Alaska Science Forum: A case for rallying around sea ice
The ice floating on top of the world covers pretty much the entire Arctic Ocean in midwinter. By late summer it shrinks to half that much. If trends continue, by mid-century the summer ice may take up less space than Japan. As the Arctic Ocean becomes more blue, it absorbs much of the sun’s heat that it once reflected with great efficiency. This warmer ocean would quicken the melt of the Greenland ice cap, which w...

The man who pleaded guilty eight months ago to criminally negligent homicide in a 2014 stabbing case received a sentence Monday of six years in jail with four suspended. Much of that will be credit for the time Teila Tofelogo, 45, has already served since the Nov. 16, 2014, stabbing, according to Tofelogo’s public defender, Amanda Harber. Tofelogo pleaded guilty to a charge of criminally negligent homicide, with a...

Outdoor Kodiak: Savings add up with custom practice loads
Bad weather and short days make winter the perfect time for ammo reloading on Kodiak. If you already reload I’m preaching to the choir. But if you haven’t started yet or if you’re a recent convert, I can give you very good reasons to belly up to a reloading bench. You’ll hear that reloading doesn’t actually save you money, and that’s accurate. Sure, the equipment will be an investment, but you’ll earn that back th...

Students and faculty at Kodiak College are breathing a lot easier after the campus went smoke- and tobacco-free on Dec. 1. “People don’t have to walk through a cloud of smoke to get through a side entrance into our buildings,” said Lorraine Stewart, the Kodiak representative to the University of Alaska Anchorage tobacco-free task force.
