A newspaper clipping is taped to the wall below the blanket and even further down on a shelf sit four framed photos, a football and a trophy. It has been nearly two years since Rex, 13, drowned at Lake Gertrude, a spring-fed body of wat...

Kodiak baseball focused on improving
Former Kodiak baseball coach Rick Langfitt preached defense more than any other thing during his nine-year run at the helm of the Bears.
