You will be missed, Ron Sears
The Clarkston house was pretty somber the past two days. Just when life was getting back to normal after the Seahawks’ Super Bowl loss, I woke up Tuesday to the sad news that a good friend had taken his last breath on Earth. Even though I knew it was coming, it still took my breath away. I couldn’t believe that Ron Sears had died at the young age of 56 from congenital heart disease. Sears was a member of the Daily...

Kalakala demolition crew saving souvenirs of iconic ferry
TACOMA, Wash. — Amid demolition, crews scrapping the ferry Kalakala are saving bolts, pieces of distressed metal with rivets, some railing. The brass trim of windows. Maybe the pistons and connecting rods from the big engine. And they can use it, considering that the office phone at Rhine Demolition Inc. has been ringing non-stop with calls from people seeking those sorts of souvenirs. "They just want a piece of t...

Try new approaches to community problems
I thought the outcome of Thursday’s P&Z meeting was as it should be, and I thought Scott Arndt did a good job of running the meeting. Dozens upon dozens of speakers spoke during the 4 1/2-hour meeting, which included some witty and salient observations. One person noted that Kodiak consists of two groups of people: the first group enjoys and appreciates living on Kodiak, while the second group is trying to figure ...

Another Kodiak ship sank in 1993
I noticed you missed a shipwreck that occurred in January 1993; “The Massacre Bay.” The Daily Mirror article was published on Jan. 18, 1993. This was a big one. They had to lease the High School auditorium because there were so many mourners. (About 700 mourners attended) — Karen Lee
