Ah, one of my favorite greens: Wrinkled Crinkled Crumpled Cress. Though the name is a tongue-twister, cress is worth e...

The similarities to Nazi Germany's "Enabling Act" and the NDAA are listed below. 1. The Enabling Act’s official Orwellian name was the 'Law for Removing the Distress of the People and the Reich.’ The NDAA’s little brother’s Orwellian name is the 'Patrio...

America’s Veterans deserve support every day, and Alaska is a great model
My recent message to colleagues on the Senate floor was blunt: You’re either for veterans, or you’re against them. It’s not enough to just make political speeches on Memorial Day or issue solemn statements on the anniversary of D-Day. You also must support our veterans every day of the year, by voting to expand their access to health care, by allocating more dollars to hire doctors, by doing all we can to reduce w...

The Eco Challenge will not take place this year
One of Kodiak Island’s most grueling races — the Eco Challenge — got nixed this summer. The Eco Challenge, a Coast Guard Morale Well-Being and Recreation sponsored event, sent competitors on a wilderness scavenger hunt across the island. The race — that was opened to members of the Coast Guard and civilians — had been a staple in Kodiak since 2002. “We just don’t have the staff right now due to budget cuts and hir...

Alutiiq Word of the Week: Nunam Kalikaa
Nunam Kalikaa – Map Ikuk’gka kalikami. – I found it on the map. The Alutiiq word for map, nunam kalikaa, literally means “the land’s paper.” Although maps and marine charts are important to modern hunters and fishermen, they are recent navigational tools. For thousands of years, Alutiiq people stored information about the landscape in place names and stories. Eighteenth-century Russian fur traders made the first m...
