Outdoor Kodiak: Walking stick proves worth on hillsides
The calendar may claim it’s spring, but on Kodiak the claim always seems to precede the fact by a couple of months. Rather than March, our spring always comes sometime in May. This year is nonetheless an anomaly. We’ve certainly had more than our fair share of rain, but you have to climb high into the hills to find much snow at all. For me that means an early start on spring in at least one regard. I don’t have to...

Questioning some of allegations leveled against Father Paisius
To the Editor, I was astonished to read Sam Dank’s comments in the March 23, 2015 article in the Kodiak Daily Mirror (Father Paisius deposed, defrocked as priest.) With a tone of supposed authority he said that Fr. Paisius is not coming back to Alaska. How can he be sure? There are a lot of people in Kodiak, the villages of Kodiak Island and in other parts of the state who want to see him and his family stay. I fi...

Thanks for the donation
My husband brought home recently a donation for my ALS bake sale fundraiser on March 7. To the woman who gave her donation to one of my volunteers who works at Safeway, I would like to say, "Thank you very much!” Her donation will be sent to the ALS Evergreen Chapter in Kent, Washington, which has Alaska in its territory. There is no ALS chapter in our state. — Sarah Thayer
