ACS sinks Kodiak boys for the second time
There was no last-second shot needed this time. Or a score mishap. Anchorage Christian rolled a 10-point first-quarter lead into a 73-61 nonconference boys basketball victory Thursday night in Anchorage. ACS won the earlier meeting on Jan. 8, 50-49, on a Trey Huckabey baseline jumper with 3.4 seconds left. A minute before the game winner, the Lions were awarded a phantom point from the scorekeeper. Kodiak never le...

Harbor cameras coming on line
The Kodiak harbormaster’s office continues to install cameras in St. Paul Harbor in hopes of catching and deterring crime. Cameras now silently watch over the parking lots and the harbor office building. “We’re still in the process of installing cameras on the floats themselves,” said deputy harbormaster Derrik Magnuson. “It has been more difficult than we thought with cable runs.” Right now, the harbor staff is w...

FREQUENT FLIERS: Kodiak boys rack up air miles
Being from Kodiak, Billy Alcaide is used to traveling. That’s good, because he has been a frequent flyer this basketball season. Through the first six weeks of the season, Kodiak has played in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Sitka and Juneau. That is close to 3,000 air miles, nearly the equivalent of a flight from Anchorage to Dallas. Kodiak will add more mileage to that number when it plays at 3A Anchorage Christian today ...
