Tapestry: Schactler recalls trapping days
PHOTOS: BRUCE SCHACTLER as a young trapper (Photo Courtesy Bruce Schactler) Last December an old friend made a comment that I’ll never forget: “Something’s missing. Kodiak doesn’t have the vibrancy and pizazz it once had.” I had to agree. Although Kodiak is still an exciting, vibrant place to live in, it has lost some of the character it had 30 years ago. Why? Maybe it’s because all of the colorful characters have...

Kodiak ESS wins opener
For the past month, Damian Bennett has been Ouzinkie’s one-man basketball team. Practices consisted mostly of running. “It was just me and my village coach,” Bennett said. His endurance was on display in the Kodiak Emerging Small Schools’ season debut against Lumen Christi Thursday at Kodiak Middle School. The sophomore scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half to lead the Ravens to a 46-29 Peninsula Conferenc...

Minn. zoo euthanizes ailing Kodiak bear
Trouble spelled trouble for Phoebe, a 28-year-old Kodiak brown bear. But what gave her bigger problem was her poor health. Phoebe, who lived nearly her entire life at Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth, Minn., was euthanized Tuesday after struggling for seven months with arthritis, said Dr. Louise Beyea, the zoo’s veterinarian. “The staff was concerned about being able to maintain her quality of life at an acceptable lev...

The IPHC meets in Vancouver British Columbia from Jan. 27-30, and will set the catch limits in the directed halibut fisheries in Alaska and British Columbia. ...

Zoning commission must listen to all residents
Dear Editor As much as I appreciate Neal Cooper’s attention to his civic duty (Letters to the Editor; Jan. 21), there are a few items I think require correcting. The Planning and Zoning Commission is established in the Kodiak Island Borough Code Chapter 2.105 and its members are appointed by the mayor (not elected, as Mr. Cooper says). Its responsibilities (too numerous to mention here) are outlined in Chapter 2.1...

Stage and Screen: 'The Imitation Game' is the real thing
“The Imitation Game” (2014) — so much to say — so little space in which to say it. Most films offer only one, perhaps two, layers of storyline. By my count there are at least five layers of storyline imbedded in this remarkable motion picture.
