Kodiak rape suspect pleads guilty to coercion and attempted assault
A Kodiak man accused of rape has pleaded guilty to coercion and attempted assault in the first degree, avoiding trial and sidestepping the possibility that an alleged sexual-assault victim might be required to testify in public, District Attorney Steve Wallace said Wednesday.

Austin’s classmates also roamed the room Tuesday while asking Kodiak Middle School students a few silly questions: “Is it cold in Alaska?” “Do you think it’s all beachy and sunshine in California?” Austin and his classmates were in Barstow, California, 3,960 miles away. But they were virtually in the Kodiak class, thanks to a robot...

Two tales of dynamic Alaska tundra

The annual gathering of Earth and space scientists attracted more than 20,000 of them to San Francisco in late December.
