Brewery cuts down on garbage by recycling
To the Editor: I wanted to let business owners know that as much stuff as we go through, and as many lunch boxes that get left here at the brewery, in our new location we use only one roll cart per week for our garbage. We have Threshold come and pick up a tote of our cardboard, paper and plastic about once a month, and that cost is more than offset by the savings we get by having a roll cart instead of a Dumpster...

Another Day in Paradise: The Peace Of Morning Madness
There is a wonderful smell in the air in the mornings, but the madness keeps me from noticing sometimes. The air is crisp, the wind is sharp, and the rain beats the browning grasses into their long winter sleep. The smell of dead grass and decaying foliage from the bushes and trees sounds disgusting at the telling, but brings about many great memories of times long past. As the dogs and I walk along Mission Beach ...

Tapestry: Laughter and stories were Lubova's gifts to her people
Three winters ago, when we were getting a lot more snow than usual, I gave Lucille Davis a ride to her apartment. After I made a comment about the unprecedented winter (at least, it was unprecedented in my short 30 years on the island) Lucille set me straight. “When I was a little girl growing up in Karluk, we had lots of snow,” she said. So much snow that people had to build their doors so that they would open in...

I capped an incredible run through the regular season by going 8-0 in Week 8 — my fourth perfect week of the season. I was either on this season, or this is just getting too easy. I concluded the eight-week regular season with a record of 53-10 for a winning percentage of .841. I gues...
