Thomas Joseph Truitt
Thomas Joseph Truitt, born May 16, 1952, passed away on Labor Day 2013, in Pueblo, Colo. with his brother Bob by his side after a brief battle with cancer. Tom had a way about him that kept you coming back for more, but you couldn’t say if it was his wit, intellect or his elusive and suppressed smile.

$2.8 million sidewalk complete
Visitors aboard Kodiak’s final cruise ship of the season were among the first to use the city’s newest transportation artery on Wednesday.

Isn’t Kodiak a great place to live?

We have stirred up the Kodiak I have known for better than three decades.
