Garden Gate: Gardeners need to dig into detective work
Several years ago I was picking broccoli when I noticed velvety, green, inch-long worms gnawing on the leaves. Never seen them before. I grabbed my camera, going from panicked gardener to calmer detective. After a quick search on the Internet I discovered that the culprit was indeed a cabbage worm (imported) and that there were several ways to control them. Whether it’s protecting plants from looming frost, gettin...

Fish Factor: Buyers believe catch shares worth more
Right after the yearly halibut catch limits are announced each January, brokers usually are busy with buying and selling and transferring shares of the catch. But it’s been slow going so far, even with slight harvest increases in nearly all Alaska fishing areas for the first time in nearly a decade. The buyers are there — it’s the sellers that are scarce. “There’s less of a rush this year, but there are less quota...

Rebuttal to "Kodiak Drug War"
Barbara Bellinger’s Letter to the Editor (Feb. 26) drips with ignorance! The “war on drugs” has been an absolute failure! Unless the true intent of this “war” is to put millions in prison, inflate the street price of drugs to astronomical levels, increase violence, militarize police, increase warrantless spying, destroy our Constitution and increase profits for the security/prison complex. If so, then it’s been a ...

Researchers discover increases in sterility in Kodiak Sitka deer
I've hunted deer in the Kodiak Archipelago since 1967. I soon discovered venison here to be the finest I had ever eaten. For 47 years it has been a major part of my family's nutrition. In 1994, I sighted and later shot an abnormal buck. This animal had antlers still in the velvet in late November and had grown several non-typical points near the bases. This buck had the body conformation of a doe and had no testic...
