Sidewalk to Nowhere a great story
Dear Editor: Brilliant yet succinct report of Kodiak's own "Sidewalk-to-Nowhere" in Thursday's KDM ($2.8 Million Sidewalk Complete). However, I would have liked a map to accompany the feature. Even though I've worked here in Kodiak for 30 years, I still get confused. And although the sidewalk seems rather costly, as a boondoggle, it hardly compares to the $398 Million "Bridge-to-Nowhere," which has its own Wikiped...

Forecast boundaries to change
Sailors are used to changing weather. When it comes to the ocean, that’s about the only reliable thing. The National Weather Service provides the best glimpse into what the changing weather will bring, but starting Oct. 1, it’s the forecasts themselves that will be changing. On that date, forecasters will change the boundaries of their forecast areas in the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea. It’s a small change on...

We are a family in Kodiak
I’ve lived in Kodiak for over 30 years and have never written a letter to the newspaper but feel compelled to do so. I awoke at 5 a.m. burdened for our community. I not only want to address the letters of recent but over the years there have been many letters that have been written, shall I say, with maybe not the best intent. We are a family here in Kodiak. Like it or not, we “are” living life with each other and...
