KHS track explodes into the season
Kodiak High’s boys track team exploded out of the gates in its season opener.

Construction companies need to be held accountable
To the Editor, As a citizen of Kodiak, I am concerned about the recent $2.24 million settlement to Pacific Pile for the Pier 3 construction. As I understand from public records, the city supplied sheet steel and pipe steel to the contractor. Sheet Pile was inspected by PND and received by Pacific Pile & Marine (PPM). PPM provided a trucking schedule for transportation to their fabricators where the pipe segments w...

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...
