Baseball entertains West Valley
By Saturday afternoon James Arnold is hoping his team will not be a chapter in Kodiak baseball history. After starting the season with four straight losses, the Bears sit three losses away from the worst start in program history as they welcome West Valley to the island for a three-game series starting at 5 p.m. today. “As soon as we get a victory, I think we will break the fever and continue to have fun and be su...

Henry's makes you jump for kangaroo meat
Like most long-time Kodiak residents, I have lost track of how many times off-island visitors asked me, “So where do you go for a good ’roo burger around here?” This week, the good people at Henry’s Great Alaskan Restaurant put an end to the shame-faced silence that used to follow such questions by adding a range of exotic meats to their menu. Supplies of kangaroo sold out quickly when the new weekly special selec...

Not digging the gold standard?
Editor’s Note: This is the second installment of “How safe is your money?” Ron Paul said there are two types of fiat currencies: ones that have collapsed and ones that are going to collapse. The average fiat currency lasts 40 years. We have been off the gold standard as a pure fiat currency for 44 years. We should consider ourselves lucky to have our fiat currency outlast the average. However, when you consider th...

Thanking Mack’s Sport Shop for supporting local nonprofit
Our old safety vests were falling apart. Most of them had pockets ripped off. Mack’s Sport Shop came to the rescue and donated new reflective vests. They even had them embroidered with our logo. The vests are much higher quality than the ones they replaced. Mack’s went all out and even donated enough for our crew and several different sized extras to accommodate our volunteers as well. It is terrific when local bu...
