Pyles has emerged as a threat on the court
Blocks have a way of energizing a volleyball team. This season, Kodiak middle hitter Megan Pyles has delivered plenty of momentum-shifting blocks that leave her teammates in awe. “She always just turns around and it’s not really anything, but we just go crazy,” Hannah Wandersee said. “It just makes the defense that much easier. We don’t have to play defense if she blocks it all the time.” Pyles might be laid back ...

Need vs. Want Part 3
To the Editor: I got a call recently from a friend who just bought his fuel and looked at the receipt: “Neal, did you know?” “Yes, I did,” was the answer. Somehow the city is taxing fuel based upon the cost after all other taxes are added on (federal and state). Yes, check it out yourself. The city of Kodiak is taxing the taxes for higher return.
