Speak out against HB77
To The Editor: The Alaska Legislature will address House Bill 77 in January 2014. This bill will remove public comment periods and allow the Department of Natural Resources to issue usage permits without public input.

It has been debated back and forth if the positive side of media’s influence outdoes the negative effects. Here in Kodiak since the weather is not always pleasant, youths tend to turn to mass media to entertain them. It’s shown today that we have eight mass media industries: books, newspapers,...

Welcome, December

Stage and Screen: Who wants to be a Millionaire? – Woody Grant does
“Nebraska” (2013) has been described as a comedy. While there are some very funny moments in this “Lake Woebegone” variety film, it is not a side-splitting comedy. Au contraire, “Nebraska” is a serious story about aging, a misspent life, alcoholism and, most notably, serious love and concern demonstrated by a son for his largely undeserving father.
