OUTDOOR KODIAK: Insidious saltwater sinks into small parts
My most memorable experience in 40 years of hunting Kodiak came on my workbench rather than in the field. I had returned from a boat hunt for deer a week before, and like a good boy I took care of all my gear and cleaned my rifle. The real adventure began when I retrieved the rifle from storage on my way to the range for some load testing. I pulled it from the case and laid it on the bench for a quick rub down. It...

Teeing Off: Escaping the cold
Whew. That was close. When Minnesota was driving down the field for the last time in Sunday’s NFC Wild Card game, I dropped to the floor. Gizmo walked over and consoled me. We both knew Seattle’s season was seconds away from being over. However, Seattle fans should be accustomed to expect the unexpected. And the unexpected happened. In the closing seconds, Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh shanked a 27-yard field goal ...

KHS boys fall short of Floyd title
It was only fitting that in an odd 49th Joe Floyd/Ravn Alaska Winter Classic Basketball Tournament that a scoring error would cost the Kodiak boys a chance at their first tournament title since 2009. The goof came near the end of Friday night’s game against Anchorage Christian. With 1 minute, 26 seconds left in the game, and Kodiak nursing a 50-49 lead, the Lions’ Mareng Gatkouth stepped to the free-throw line. Th...

Assembly spoke with reason — this time
To the editor: Thursday evening I was privileged to attend a meeting of the borough assembly. And I use the word “privileged” as, at this meeting, there occurred a brilliant and eloquent discussion on humanism vs. the rule of law in governance of civil society. In point of fact, on this assembly we have several intellectual geniuses. Many are accomplished speakers, some eloquent. Pretty much to a man each has most...

GARDEN GATE: Bring spring inside with sprouts, herbs
My friend’s text said it all: “Where’s winter?” Though the days are getting longer, time is relative. Deciduous trees have been naked for several months and, thanks to persistent gales that compel container ship captains to bypass Kodiak, stores struggle to keep bananas in stock. Welcome to January, when the sun winks its way behind treetops and you gaze longingly at travel magazines displayed at the checkout line...
