Kodiak’s Drug War
To the Editor, I laughed when I read the recent opinion piece in the Kodiak Daily Mirror. It read many citizens are outraged regarding a recent drug raid.

Stage and Screen: 'Black or White' falls short
"Black or White" (2014) falls short in important ways - interesting concept, but a poorly directed film and Kevin Costner’s acting doesn’t help either. I’ll elaborate. The backstory: A teenage white girl has a baby fathered by crack smoking 23 year-old black man. The girl dies in childbirth without ever notifying her upper middle class parents that she is pregnant.

Kahye Yu dislocates shoulder during game
Kahye Yu went up for a rebound. She came down without the ball and her right arm dangling like a noodle. The Kodiak High School junior has replayed that moment in her head several times, but still does not know how her shoulder got dislocated in last Thursday’s 12-point girls basketball loss at Thunder Mountain. “I just remember feeling a bunch of pain in my shoulder and the referee guiding me off the floor,” said...
