PIGSKIN PICKS: Little guys take it to the big guys
I should hand over pigskin prognostications to new Kodiak High football coach Bill McGuire. He nailed Soldotna’s victory over South, and I didn’t. Cookies for McGuire. In one of the most hyped high school games in state history, Soldotna extended its state-best winning streak to 30 games with a 21-17 win. Chock one up to the medium schools. Actually, chock two up as Palmer, a new medium-school member, also topped ...

Until God is enough: Dealing with food
I ate a McDonald's Egg McMuffin in front of Lindsay today. Yes, THAT Lindsay. Gym trainer Lindsay, who probably eats puffed grass for breakfast with fat-free soymilk. Five percent body fat Lindsay. (I don't really know if these things are true, except the gym trainer part; all the rest of the stuff is just my inner fit person being projected onto Lindsay). Yes, I carried my McDonald's bag into a public place, and ...

They said “it will never last.” But it did. The marriage of Ruth and Ed Gunderson lasted almost 60 years, until “death do us part.” Ruth has a lot to remind her of her departed beloved. Every room in her cozy, modest house on Rezanov holds memories of him. The Gundersons grew up in South Bend, Washington, a predominantly Scandinavian community. “The Norwegians and Swedes did not get along,” Ruth recalled. “The Nor...

The incredible obscenity of Alaska sockeye prices
Two thousand years ago, a fisherman named Peter was pulling fish from a small freshwater sea. He probably turned to the fellow next to him and said, “Can you believe what Pontius Pilate Processors is paying us for our sardines? They’re paying almost nothing and look at this; we’re deckloaded!” The other fellow might have smiled and said, with a faraway look in his eye: “The problem is not with the processors or wi...
