Alaska Science Forum: A supertanker voyage through the Northwest Passage
Forty-six years ago, a ship long as the Empire State Building sailed with intention toward obstacles that captains usually avoid. The icebreaking tanker SS Manhattan was an oil company’s attempt to see if it might be profitable to move new Alaska oil to the East Coast by plowing through the ice-clogged Northwest Passage. Begging his way aboard was Merritt Helfferich, then 31 and a do-all guy at the Geophysical Ins...

Kodiak falls to fifth in prep rankings
Kodiak’s one-point loss to Kenai didn’t hurt the Bears that much in the latest high school football rankings. Following a 22-21 defeat, the Bears dropped one spot to No. 5 in the medium-small schools rankings in the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network poll. Kodiak (1-1 NLC, 2-1 overall) shut out Kenai, which remained No. 3 in this week’s poll, in the second half and nearly rallied from a 15-point halftime deficit. ...

September is 'Vulnerable Adult Awareness Month'
To the Editor: There are good reasons for Governor Parnell to proclaim September 2013 “Vulnerable Adult Awareness Month.” Alaska has the fastest-growing senior population in the nation. Reports of harm to Adult Protective Services have risen 183 percent in the last five years. The office of the long-term care ombudsman now opens four times as many cases each month as it did in 2009. Our state has many vulnerable s...

Elected officials need to balance our checkbook
To the Editor: We now have at least a million and a half plus-dollar sidewalk on Shelikof Street measured in yards, not miles. We have streets where pothole dodging is an Olympic event. We have roads with no street lights. Honestly, how hard would it be to add a light to an existing power pole? That could be done between town and the airport as well. We have councilmen using their elected position to push their pe...
