Marine fungi: Forgotten ferocious feeders
I will refrain from complaining about the weather; you have probably heard enough of that lately. Standing in the pouring rain I was talking to a woman the other day.

Teeing Off: Gizmo likes the Hawks
Tuesday was my birthday. I spent most of the day celebrating on the couch with Gizmo. Believe it or not, the pooch has a very comforting face when you are down and out with a cough. After watching a few episodes of “Seinfeld,” Gizzy insisted I turn the channel. Who knew he wasn’t a Cosmo Kramer fan. It didn’t take us long to settle on the NFL Network, where a Game Rewind Seattle marathon was airing. For those not ...

Kodiak High School wrestling heads to the Glen Vandergaw Invitational hoping to build on the momentum gained from last weekend. The Bears produced one of their best showings of the season at the John Tobin Invitational in Fairbanks by placing four wrestlers in the finals — three walked away as champions.

As a result of the deal, Robert Zoellner Jr., 32, will be sentenced on April 27. He faces up to 15 years in prison, to be served consecutively, wit...

Alaska breweries rising to the top of competition

Case in point, Alaska’s thriving small brewing scene: a great example of Alaskan small business success. One of the little known facts about our state’s economic picture is that we currently have 22 licensed breweries making high-quality craft beer, from Sitka to Silver Gulch and I understand ther...
