A measure to ban salmon set-netting is being kept afloat by backers. The ban would cover the Anchorage area, much of the Kenai Peninsula, Valdez and Juneau. It would completely eliminate Cook Inlet set-netting and affect roughly 500 fishing families in all. Two weeks ago, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell turned down a 2016 ballot initiative proposing the ban. The newly formed Kenai-based Alaska Fisheries Conservation Allia...

GCI to offer free streaming of Olympics
More than 210 million Americans will watch the winter Olympics when they begin Feb. 6. Kodiak TV viewers will not be among them.

Garden Gate: Take precautions in the warm winter weather
My concern began during a recent spin around the garden. I saw too much green for a January day: Buds forming on rose bushes, pansies still blooming, and poppies acting as though spring had arrived. Had it? I stopped near a raised bed of small evergreen trees and rhododendrons. Yikes! I spotted a slug near a cluster of primroses. Spruce branches covered a patch of perennials, protecting them against an Arctic wint...
