Tapestry: Gardner driven by a passion like Patrick's Lively dancing, Irish toasts and pitchers of green beer will no doubt highlight many St. Patrick’s Day parties this Sunday. What often gets bypassed in these celebrations is the missionary zeal that drove the English-born lad saint dangerous territory.
Kidnapped at age 16 and brought to Ireland as a slave, Patrick escaped his captors and returned to England. He came back to Ireland to preach the Gospel after heari...
Another Day in Paradise: Overcoming isolation As you read this, I will either be boarding, waiting, or riding on our ferry system heading home. This morning, I will board the ferry in Homer for a 13-hour ride home with our new van.

snowshoe, go sledding or skiing.
Make sugar on snow, the Vermont tra...

Island Flavor: Java Flats caters to health nuts April is the cruelest month, T. S. Eliot said in his compelling and influential work, “The Waste Land.”
Those owing federal income tax may agree.
But inhabitants of Kodiak Island know the designation “cruel” belongs not to April but to the long winter month when Alicia McEwan closes Java Flats for her annual sabbatical.

Our Assembly is broken To the Editor:
After listening to last Thursday’s borough assembly meeting, I have concluded that our highest governing body is broken! Crimes against democracy have been apparent for a while, but now it’s out of hand!
When four assembly members deny a fellow member the opportunity to defend himself, bells and whistles should go off in every constituent’s head and attempts to fix what’s broken should be addresse...
