KHS wrestlers compete in Wash. state
Kodiak junior Scott Larionoff has never wrestled outside of Alaska. That changes today when the Bears compete in a jamboree — a preseason dual — against Union High School in Camas, Washington, a 4A classification school located 176 miles south of Seattle. The fun doesn’t stop there. The Bears have stops at Washington (Tacoma), Auburn and Stanwood high schools during their four-day trip through the Evergreen State....

Platform struck by vandalism
Kodiak Audubon member Rich MacIntosh found an unpleasant coda to the Thanksgiving holiday on Friday when he saw severe damage to the Potato Patch Lake viewing platform, apparently from vandalism. The city of Kodiak and Audubon partnered about 15 years ago to construct the popular viewing area that provides public access from the road through thick alders. Audubon conservation chairman Stacy Studebaker said someone...

Damaged timber will quickly lose value
To the editor: I have followed with a vested interest the Kodiak Borough Assemlby’s actions and inactions concerning the fire-damaged timber at Chiniak. Some years ago, the borough rejected a $4 million offer for this timber because of public opinion. While the decision made some sense for a healthy stand of timber, the forest fire this summer changed everything. What the borough now has is a damaged resource, whi...

OUTDOOR KODIAK: December deer for taste, not trophies
The week between Christmas and New Year’s is rich with tradition. For many on Kodiak it’s time to join family and friends in loading freezers with venison. These late season hunts are all about sweet venison in the freezer rather than racks on the wall. I learned that the hard way on my first venture over three decades ago. There was a lot of snow up high, even if it was patchy down near sea level. I had climbed u...
