Few attend runway extension project meeting In 2007, Kodiak residents loudly protested a plan to extend Kodiak State Airport toward the mouth of the Buskin River.
On Thursday evening, with the plan modified to avoid the Buskin, only a half-dozen people showed up to a new meeting with the Federal Aviation Administration.

Lots of halibut remains in the freezers, and some major processors reportedly unloaded the high-priced fish at a loss las...

Police, Troopers and ADF&G kill bothersome bear that wandered near school Alaska State Troopers, Kodiak police and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game killed a 4-year-old grizzly sow Thursday morning on Larch Street, ending a week of close encounters in the city of Kodiak.

KDM editorial: DNR's new program raises price of guiding Fishery catch share programs have gutted the number of boats on Kodiak's waterfront, and the state of Alaska is about to do the same thing to commercial hunting.
