The master has appeared
An enduring Chinese proverb declares, “When the student is ready, the master will appear.” Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) personifies this aphorism in “The Master”. Freddie Quell is an obsessive smoker, drinker and sex addicted World War II Navy enlistee.

KHS tennis sends 8 to state
Sean Gill made a quick exit from last year’s state tennis tournament. That defeat turned the tournament into a tennis classroom for the Kodiak High School junior. Gill and his doubles partner Allen Santa Maria were overpowered by their competition, dropping their only two matches.
