The 20 wrestlers combined to go 19-30 at a six-team meet in Anchorage last Friday. “Considering that almost half of our kids had never wrestled a match before we were very happy with how they did,” coach Steve Rounsaville wrote in an email.

I am having trouble getting down to “real work” this week, despite being in the midst of the first week in Lent. Two big things happened in the middle of the week. The first was that I got a puppy, after being on the waiting list for several weeks. Yes, a third dog, but we have missed our border collie pack member Angus, who died at the age of 16, the first fall that I lived here. The puppy is a golden retriever-y...

Black market in rides
By JOANN SNODERLY Mirror Writer Local taxi drivers say an onslaught of illegal taxicabs is taking business and slashing into profits.

Week in Words: Choice of weed, pot, reefers, joints
Next week, Alaska will begin issuing marijuana business licenses. And even though we probably won’t see reefer retail establishments pop up around the state for a few more months, tonight in Kodiak, our borough assembly will look at an ordinance to opt out of the toke trade, despite Kodiakans’ support of Ballot Measure 2 in 2014.
