KIBSD superintendent has optimistic view of next year’s budget
The Kodiak Island Borough School District could see up to a five percent cut in funding from the state, and the borough likely can’t make up the difference, but superintendent Stewart McDonald thinks the district is in good shape regardless. “We feel 100 percent certain that no matter how the budget goes this year that between funds we currently have, staffing formulas that we currently have, we may see a conversa...

NLC RANKINGS: KHS girls hit the road to finish season
Talk about a rough way to end the season. Kodiak’s girls basketball team will finish the regular-season with 12 straight away games. Toss in conference tournament games and that number will climb even more. Might as well just leave the duffle bags packed. The Bears just might have the toughest schedule to end the season. I doubt any other team in Alaska is finishing with that many away games, which includes a voya...

We are Kodiak
Lately I have spent every minute I can at the borough meetings. Others as well are watching. The common question is what does it take to get our representatives to represent the will of the Kodiak People? I really don't have an answer. Several months ago, one on the work board asked that I not share their name that they were a part of the code plan. Now I know why! One from Ouzinkie identified himself as one invol...

Outdoor Kodiak: The long season
Waterfowl season closes at sundown this Thursday, Jan. 22. But it’s no reason to put away your guns until fall! January 23 marks the start of my favorite hunting “season.” In truth there’s no closed season for snowshoe hare on Kodiak and no bag limit, but the next three months are my favorite period for hunting. You’ll encounter virtually no one else out and about, and the vast majority of bears are down for their...
