Pyles to continue hoops career in Wash.
Midway through signing her national letter of intent, the pen Megan Pyles was using dried up. Just like on the basketball court, Pyles did not miss a beat. She simply asked for another pen, which drew chuckles from the crowd of family, friends and coaches watching the ceremony on May 14 at Kodiak High School. “I thought that pen was working. It was going pretty good. It just died,” Pyles said. Pyles’ mom, Tammy, s...

Kodiak Jig Seafoods ships first fish
The jig could be up for farmed fish if a group of Kodiak jig advocates have their way. But first, getting a few thousand pounds of fish off the line, packaged, shipped and put on the plates of discerning customers in Alaskan restaurants has been quite a doing — and all during the buildup to Kodiak’s salmon season.

Bear shot on Selief may be injured coop raider
A rash of bear sightings over the weekend is making bear experts a little wary of a possible lone and increasingly brazen bear. Several sightings — quite possibly of the same bear — were reported on May 18. Police were called on four occasions. The first report, in the wee hours of the morning May 18, described a bear on Selief getting into garbage. Police were called and chased it off into the woods. Next, a bear...

Borough assessors enjoy luxury ride
To the editor, Recently, as I was taking an early morning walk outside my cabin, I was startled to see two fancy outdoor clad people come out of the woods. Initially, my dog was more upset than I was and wouldn’t let them past. I tied him up and they brushed past me with very little introduction or even asking my permission to traipse all over my property. I turned around and there were three more! One to hold a n...
