Bowling tourney set for Sunday
One of Kodiak’s richest bowling tournaments takes place Sunday at Tropic Lanes. The sixth Spenard Builders Supply Pro-Build Championships begins at 1 p.m. The tournament is different than most held in Kodiak because of the difficulty of the oil patters. “It is one of the fairest tournaments,” co-tournament founder Stefan Machalias told the Daily Mirror in 2012. “Nobody has an advantage. A lot of people don’t under...

Spiritual victory not shown in final score
To all you UAA women’s basketball fans out there, I feel your pain — watching your team get so far in the NCAA tournament, just to lose in the end. My Tar Heels did the same thing in the men’s tournament, and it felt agonizingly unbelievable. It was hard enough to be one of only a handful of fans on the island, where everyone else was acting like it was just another day and going about their everyday business. I w...

Shoes, pinwheels highlight abuse
If you noticed a pile of shoes in a display case in the lobby of the Gerald C. Wilson auditorium and a garden of blue pinwheels planted in front of the Kodiak Police Department in the past couple weeks, it’s because April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The number of pinwheels and pairs of shoes is 147. That’s how many child abuse cases, most of them sexual abuse, the Kodiak Area Native Association’s Kod...

Possible good news for water in Chiniak
To the editor: Heard Leisnoi Inc. is no longer spraying herbicides out in the area they logged in Chiniak. And no more is planned in the future. That’s good for the residents of Chiniak and the rest of the island, especially commercial, sport and subsistence fisheries. Now hopefully the amount that was sprayed in Chiniak has no adverse effects to residents’ drinking water. We’ll have to wait to have the water test...

Week in Words: Revenuers take battle to the venues

Today we understand the word “revenue” to mean some sort of income, either through the selling of goods and services, or through the collection of investments and taxes. The English form comes from the similar Middle French (14th to 17th centuries) “revenue,” a noun meaning “a return.” This is sim...
