Garden Gate: Cold remedies
It’s my birthday, and I have a cold. It began as a subtle awareness that something different was happening; a little odd; not quite right. I was busy at the time — drafting a proposal, planting seeds and processing photographs — so the change was imperceptible at first and hard to identify. And then, like a gremlin sneaking around the corner, it showed itself in the light of day with a “Boo!” in the form of a ting...

Fish Factor: Seafood sales peak during Lent
Last Wednesday marked the start of Lent, a time of fasting, soul searching and repentance for hundreds of millions of Christians around the world. And what the burst in the holiday sales season from Thanksgiving to Christmas means to retailers, Lent means the same to the seafood industry.

More than a decade after coaching the boys to an undefeated season, she has the Kodiak girls basketball team five games away from a perfect season.

District-wide AD is not a one-person job
To the Editor, I am writing to express my concerns with the latest actions of the superintendent and the administrators in the central office.
