Jim Wells is guilty — end of story
To the editor, Jim Wells is guilty as sin, end of story. He knew exactly what he was doing and why. He had all his T’s crossed and I’s dotted until he went to court in Anchorage. The jury found him guilty and rightfully so. Justice has been served. End of story. Sarah L. Thayer

Finwhales and Humpbacks feeding in Kodiak
There are those days in Kodiak, where there is no place in the world I would rather be. This spring had many great and beautiful days; I could feel the sunshine on my face and the beach is never more than 10 minutes away. Last week, however, took the crown for experiences that make up for any number of cold and glum days in the office. When the cruise ship was in on Tuesday, I was out for a wildlife tour to tell t...
