If these women believe they can silence the public by putting an ordinance in place for "we the people" by regulating us on asking what their motives are and how...

Dolly Varden Fun
This is a magic time of year on Kodiak Island. There are so many options for outdoor fun, it can be tough to decide which to choose today, tomorrow or the next day. It’s also easy to overlook some really prime opportunities. Red salmon, pink salmon and king salmon are in rivers, and now silver salmon are mixing with the kings and pinks offshore.

Don’t give up on versatile, tasty turnips
My husband Marty’s a good sport. He’s my guinea pig when it comes to trying new foods. One day, I sliced up a new variety of turnip. Rather than sauté it in butter and serve it with salt and pepper, I decided to give it the naked taste test. So dipped a sliced wedge of the mystery veg into a honey-mustard dip and turned to face Marty. My hand moved toward his mouth and before he could argue or run, I put the slice...
