KHS boys fall short of Floyd title
It was only fitting that in an odd 49th Joe Floyd/Ravn Alaska Winter Classic Basketball Tournament that a scoring error would cost the Kodiak boys a chance at their first tournament title since 2009. The goof came near the end of Friday night’s game against Anchorage Christian. With 1 minute, 26 seconds left in the game, and Kodiak nursing a 50-49 lead, the Lions’ Mareng Gatkouth stepped to the free-throw line. Th...

GARDEN GATE: Bring spring inside with sprouts, herbs
My friend’s text said it all: “Where’s winter?” Though the days are getting longer, time is relative. Deciduous trees have been naked for several months and, thanks to persistent gales that compel container ship captains to bypass Kodiak, stores struggle to keep bananas in stock.
