Teeing Off: Brady should get punished
I’m not buying it, and you shouldn’t either. Gizmo and I sat on the couch Thursday and watched New England quarterback Tom Brady talk to the media about Deflategate for 30 minutes. The more Brady talked, the more upset Gizmo got. At one point I thought Gizzy was going to grrrrrr Mr. Brady of the podium. He can sniff out a cheater with the best of them. I was going to grrrrrr Brady myself because I picked him over ...

Tapestry: Schactler recalls trapping days
PHOTOS: BRUCE SCHACTLER as a young trapper (Photo Courtesy Bruce Schactler) Last December an old friend made a comment that I’ll never forget: “Something’s missing. Kodiak doesn’t have the vibrancy and pizazz it once had.” I had to agree. Although Kodiak is still an exciting, vibrant place to live in, it has lost some of the character it had 30 years ago. Why?
