Barge dock could come to Pasagshak
A new barge dock and boat ramp will be built in Pasagshak Bay if plans by the Alaska Aerospace Corp. come to fruition. According to a permit application filed in August, AAC is considering construction of a nose-in barge dock “to streamline delivery of incoming aerospace-related cargos to the Kodiak Launch Complex.” The new dock would be an integral part of the complex’s planned Launchpad 3 expansion, said AAC chi...

Kodiak falls to fifth in prep rankings
Kodiak’s one-point loss to Kenai didn’t hurt the Bears that much in the latest high school football rankings. Following a 22-21 defeat, the Bears dropped one spot to No. 5 in the medium-small schools rankings in the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network poll. Kodiak (1-1 NLC, 2-1 overall) shut out Kenai, which remained No. 3 in this week’s poll, in the second half and nearly rallied from a 15-point halftime deficit. ...

Papa Murphy’s offering delivery to Kodiak
Kodiak has plenty of choices for pizza. If you’re downtown, you can stop by Sparrows or Angelo’s To-Go. In Midtown? Stop by Big Al’s. Out on the road system? Hit Road’s End.

Kodiak isn’t getting a Papa Murphy’s franchise, but it is getting access to Papa Murphy’s pizza as Zac an...

September is 'Vulnerable Adult Awareness Month'
To the Editor: There are good reasons for Governor Parnell to proclaim September 2013 “Vulnerable Adult Awareness Month.” Alaska has the fastest-growing senior population in the nation. Reports of harm to Adult Protective Services have risen 183 percent in the last five years. The office of the long-term care ombudsman now opens four times as many cases each month as it did in 2009. Our state has many vulnerable s...

Kodiak volleyball begins with six wins
Kodiak was nearly perfect during the opening weekend of its 2013 volleyball season. The Bears won all six matches and dropped only one set during a three-day stay at Sitka that concluded Saturday.

Elected officials need to balance our checkbook
To the Editor: We now have at least a million and a half plus-dollar sidewalk on Shelikof Street measured in yards, not miles. We have streets where pothole dodging is an Olympic event. We have roads with no street lights. Honestly, how hard would it be to add a light to an existing power pole? That could be done between town and the airport as well. We have councilmen using their elected position to push their pe...

Outdoor Kodiak: Silver salmon in rivers
The upstream portions of road system rivers open to salmon fishing Sept. 16. The rivers are teeming with silver salmon, and “opening day” is the highlight of the season for many anglers. But there’s a flip side. The best fishing holes may be crowded, and the fishing can deteriorate as quickly as tempers flare. I don’t like crowds, and I go to a lot of trouble to avoid them. Does that mean I have to forego hot fish...
