Prep picks: Football season reaches midway marker
It’s only the first week of September, but Alaska has reached the midway point of its high school football season. And at the halfway point, I find myself with a 19-3 record (.863 winning percentage) after going 6-1 last week. The game that ended perfection last week was Voznesenka’s victory over Valdez. It was the Cougars’ first 11-man football win in school history. I will have to go undefeated this week if I wa...

For more than 20 years, Garcia brought the spicy flavor of Mexican food to the streets of Kodiak in her lunch wagon, Martha’s Place. Martha closed her mobile restaurant about a year ago after taking a hard fall that broke her wrist and put her back out of joint. Besides carryi...

To me this is irrespon...
