Where does this leave Leisnoi shareholders?
Dear Editor, I was 18 years old when the ANCSA was passed. I am now 61 years old and most of the original shareholders have passed on. There are still opportunities for the Board of Leisnoi to provide something for the use and benefit of each shareholder besides the devastation of and clear-cutting of Chiniak. Our Annual Shareholder report tells us that there is no further money to be distributed in order to maint...

carelessness causing brush fires
To the editor:   Recently, there has been numerous brush fires popping up throughout the state and I am concerned for Kodiak. I have observed many people throwing cigarettes out of their vehicles while driving down the road and I wonder if they have given thought to how their actions may start a fire contributing to the loss of a house, business or personal property.

Borough taxes chasing away families
To the editor, Some of us are aware of the incredible spending that goes on here in Kodiak.

They pretty much think they can do as they wish. In this case I define “debtor” as someone who has not had a mortgage payment in decades but is now ...

Alutiiq Word of the Week Lesson 16:47 
Itgaq (Literally, “foot”) – Flipper Gui wiinam itgai pingaktaanka. – I always like the sea lion’s feet. Sea mammals propel themselves through Alaska’s coastal waters with strong, sleek flippers. Flippers not only help animals swim, they can be important tools for exiting the water and moving on land. Seal and sea lion flippers, for example, have a tough rubbery surface that keeps the animal from sliding on slipper...

Snailfishes and lumpsuckers like to just stay put
We had a great week last week. Twelve students from St. Mary’s school engaged in a week of Marine Science. Field trips combined with science lessons and art activities in the Ocean Science Discovery Lab made for a busy, fun-filled week with lots of learning and discovery. It was the best time for such an endeavor as plankton nets and tide pools were teeming with new life. While I am familiar with many of the anima...
