Kodiak boys look to claim first state cross country title since 2008
Levi Fried feels like he owes Kodiak High School a state title. In 2012, as a sophomore, Fried was part of a Kodiak boys cross country team talented enough to win a state championship. But a mid-season hip injury derailed Fried, and he finished 23rd at the state meet, while the team — behind first- and second-place finishes from Levi Thomet and Cole Christiansen — placed third, a mere 10 points behind champion Wes...

Sullivan not informed on Alaska issues
To the Editor, Dan Sullivan finally decided to support increasing Alaska’s minimum wage even though he originally opposed it. In a debate in January Sullivan said increasing the minimum wage wouldn’t solve any problems in the economy despite the fact that the evidence shows otherwise.
