In Orthodox Nativity, anticipation comes before celebration
“354 days until Christmas and people have their lights up already.” So goes a posting on Facebook. Christmas lights and music are hard to let go of. Some of the post-Christmas celebrants are anticipating “Russian Christmas,” which occurs Jan 7.

Amazing Nature: Causes for sea star wasting still a mystery
During the winter holidays we surround ourselves with the symbols of Christmas; snowflakes, lights, bells, evergreen trees and stars. Some of these season’s cheers have an obvious origin (snowflakes for winter time, and lights to give cheer to your local electric company), in others the symbolism is more complicated and relates to various traditions from around the world.

The NFL’s second season starts Saturday with Wild Card Weekend. It also gives Gizmo a chance to redeem himself from a horrible Week 17 performance. The canine must have not been feeling well, as he incorrectly picked all three of his games last week. That dropped his season record to 18-21. Thanks Santa. Gizmo was bouncing with enthusiasm when I laid down the picks in front of him Thursday. Maybe it was just the s...

Trespassing and illegal drug use were not the only bad decisions a Kodiak man seems to have made before Alaska State Troopers caught him — after he allegedly lurked around the home of the city’s top cop, officials said Thursday. Police chief Ronda Wallace and her husband, David Spellman, originally reported to the troopers that someone was prowling around their house with a flashlight Tuesday, according to court d...
