City fire department shows off new $450,000 engine
Deputy Fire Chief Jim Mullican showed off Kodiak’s new fire engine to the city council after Thursday’s meeting. With this new engine, the city is back to having two engines and a ladder truck. The city sold one of its old engines in October 2012, Mullican said. Since then, they’ve only had one engine, which led to problems when that engine needed maintenance or repairs. The ladder truck is unable to go certain pl...

Nasturtiums add a kick to your garden and your plate
People who live in more temperate areas don’t give nasturtiums a second look. They’re often regarded as weeds, since they reseed easily and will grow absolutely anywhere with the least amount of maintenance. (Ever been in southern California in June?) But whether you grow nasturtiums in Cambridge or Kodiak, they’re often seen as ornamental annuals, blooming through early summer before the heat (or frost) turns the...

Public comment needed on Alaska fisheries policy
Nowhere in the world do people have more say in shaping fisheries policy than in Alaska. While the outcomes might get mixed rants and reviews, no one is ever denied the chance to state ideas, concerns and gripes to decision makers. Several opportunities are available right now. First, a revised draft of the Magnuson-Stevens Act was released for public review and comment. The MSA is the primary federal law that gov...

To the editor: Repeal SB 21
SB21 has been touted as the More Alaska Production Act. A more accurate description is Minimize Alaska’s Profits Act. Historically, instability in the Middle East has driven the price of oil higher. Shouldn’t Alaska shareholders benefit from the higher prices too? I’m voting yes on Proposition 1 because the majority of our legislators forgot which “board room” they were in when they cast their vote. Laura Bonner, ...

To the editor: Assembly entitlement
This concerns the debate concerning the Assembly’s decorum ordinance. All interpretation of Robert’s aside, it is an unfortunate fact that the Assembly has the right to pass such an ordinance. However, they are foolish indeed if they believe they can escape the well-deserved scrutiny, criticism and negative perceptions by the residents who are impacted. The average person is not, nor should they be expected to be,...
