Measures to take to minimize garden damage
It’s starting to look a lot like springtime in Alaska. Really? Several people have asked me about flowering bulbs poking above the soil and buds appearing on bushes, including salmonberries and honeyberries. Like last year around this time, a common question went something like this: “This is only February. What will happen to the berry crop if we get a hard freeze?” Let’s back up a bit. Last fall I shared with yo...

Girls split at SoHi
Kodiak rallied from one deficit, but couldn’t overcome another over the weekend in Soldotna.

A victory for Red
Before the start of Friday’s game against Soldotna, Kodiak boys basketball coach David Anderson had just one message for his team: “We are going to win this one for Red.” Red West was smiling from above. Playing for the first time since the death of their former assistant coach, the Bears won an exciting Northern Lights Conference matchup, 49-44, at Kodiak High. It was only fitting that senior Max Mutch — the play...

Remembering Red: Kodiak hoops coach dies of cancer
Red West was easy to pick out of a crowd. He was the middle-aged guy nestled on the Kodiak High School boys’ basketball sideline with a face full of — you guessed it — red facial hair. Beyond the bristly look, West was one of the boys. He cheered when an unbelievable play was made, told jokes and stories, and hung out just like high school boys would. He cherished every moment he spent with the team, and the boys ...

Celebrating Agape love
The last straw was the TV commercial for JC Penney encouraging everyone to “buy gifts for all your Valentines” and, of course, “use your JC Penney card” and get in even more debt after the Christmas binge of gift buying. I wanted to throw my remote at the TV, but managed to refrain. I have picked up pieces of remote before and never found all the pieces. Valentines Day and I have had a love/hate relationship with ...
