Kodiak Middle School should keep its word
To the Editor: There was time earlier in the school year when the school, specifically KMS, assured that rooms that are basically something from a psych ward would not be used unless a student is posing a physical threat. Recently, while in the building, there was a young lady in there quietly eating her lunch (granted, I don’t have details or the whole story on this specific incident). So now I must ask is it the...

Presenting a different perspective on fish processing
To the Editor: You recently published an article in the Kodiak Daily Mirror titled “Kodiak acts on tender issue." Please allow me to present a different perspective. Trident tendered approximately 7 million pounds of pollock from GOA area 620 to our Akutan plant. This fish was caught by vessels that regularly fish for Trident out of Kodiak and Sand Point.
