Teeing Off: Life on the road
Sitting on a school bus for the first time in more than decade brought me back to my playing days. I had plenty of time to stroll down memory lane on the ride from Kenai to Homer.

AMAZING NATURE: Kodiak students enjoy mud flats and deep sea
It was a busy week. This year during the first week of May the Kodiak Ocean Science Discovery Program went out of town for five days of marine science curriculum.
