Island Flavor: Fly-By a spiritually satisfying stop on a wintery day
After only two months as the Kodiak Daily Mirror’s food critic, my clothes are already getting smaller. This is an occupational hazard they don’t tell you about in journalism school. Not that I went to journalism school, but still. The challenge for me today is to eat well; my energy level is sagging and I have much yet to accomplish. But I want to eat light.

A press release announced that an all-girl dance band would arrive to perform for the whole community. Enticing ads appeared in the military newsletter and the Kodiak Daily Mirror.

Another Day in Paradise: Traditions hold a special place for all of us
One of my favorite musicals is “Fiddler On The Roof”. I saw it the first time at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. with Topol in the lead role of Tevye. My favorite version of it was when our youngest son played the same role his senior year in High School. Tevye explains the position they are in this way. “A fiddler on the roof. Sounds crazy, no? But here, in our little village of Anatevka, you might say eve...
