We are Kodiak
Lately I have spent every minute I can at the borough meetings. Others as well are watching. The common question is what does it take to get our representatives to represent the will of the Kodiak People? I really don't have an answer.

You’ll encounter virtually no one else out and about, and the vast majority of bears are down for their...

Build code that works for Kodiak
It seems we all can agree that the new proposed codes are overreaching and oppressive and if implemented will suffocate our community and our way of life. There is one portion that I have only heard comment on by only one person: subsistence. It is my understanding that if we go from rural to urban we will lose all our subsistence rights. Just the threat of this should have every person in this community speaking ...
