Amazing Nature: Where did the ocean come from? When you drive to work, climb a mountain, catch a fish or take a boat ride, the ocean is always there, a seemingly endless, vast, and powerful presence. Yet most textbooks about the ocean first ask the intriguing question: Where did it come from?

Another Day in Paradise: Peace in the storms I think that if John Milton would start over and write his poem today about Kodiak, Paradise Lost would not be about the fall of man, but of the great wind.

Island Flavor: El Chicano’s: News for a son stationed at Fort Benning Dear Son,
So, Dad shared the news that I am now Kodiak’s food critic; I heard you got a chuckle out of it.
My new mission must seem droll compared to the excitement you’ve had, with your handling of Composition C-4 and the Humvee Rollover Training and all. But truly it is the most fun I’ve had since your Great Aunt Bess lost her teeth at the county fair.
And I’ve gained a certain amount of (dare I say?) popularity...
Perspective: Encounters with Central American feral chickens Travel is often touted as a way to broaden one’s education. After living in El Salvador for 18 months, I wholeheartedly agree that living abroad is a learning experience.

Skate park in need of improvements Within the next few weeks, the Kodiak City Council will begin to examine spending plans for $1.9 million remaining from the first phase of the Baranof Park Improvements Project.
We strongly urge the city to consider spending some of that money to address the failing Baranof Park skate park.
When the skate park was approved by the city in 1999, it was supposed to be a place where skaters, bikers and scooter riders ...
