MOUNTAIN VIEW: Termination Point adds to island magic
The fogs and rains have descended once again on Kodiak. Fall is in full swing and the rain is welcomed by many. The water reservoir levels were low and some salmon were still high and dry waiting for the rains. This weather gives us silent permission to retreat indoors for baking, canning, quilting and perhaps more TV shows as well.  It’s been two years since we’ve had a “real” winter with any significant snow at ...

Stage and Screen: Pioneers, settlers in Internet Age
Intergenerational harmony, rather than intergenerational conflict, is the theme of the 2015 film “The Intern.” While tilling much of the same ground as the 2013 film “The Internship,” “The Intern” examines the interface between cross-generational values in a more mature fashion. This is not to suggest that the Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson film was without merit. Au contraire; “The Internship” was an amusing and poigna...

Drug forum a good start
I’m feeling a little scattered or schizophrenic this week. Not clinically — I’m well medicated almost all the time these days. No, I’m talking about having thoughts about a number of things at once. Well, here goes, let’s see if I can weave this together somehow. Drugs are bad. Don’t do drugs, mkay? I thought Monday’s community roundtable on Kodiak’s drug and crime problem was excellent.

Carnival rides to return for Crab Festival
After two years, Golden Wheel Amusements is returning to Kodiak Crab Festival next year.

Water supply holds steady
Kodiak’s water supply has held steady over the weekend in spite of local fish processing plants starting operations for the Pollack opening. “This is the best it’s been for several days,” said Mark Kozak, public works director. “The rain we have gotten has balanced out the water usage by the processors.” As of Thursday Oct. 1, water level for Monashka Reservoir was down 38 inches below the pre-2003 spillway and as...
