Vandalism affects everybody
To the Editor: We would like to ask the youths of Kodiak to stop and think how vandalism affects them, before they or someone they know commits this senseless crime. Having private property damaged may not directly impact you, but think if it were your property. What level of respect would you expect? What if it were public property?

Outdoor Kodiak: Holiday deer hunts
For many Kodiak families, holiday deer hunts are a tradition. Between Christmas and New Year’s Day, they set out for regions of the island with liberal bag limits and put lots of venison in the freezer. Remote hunting is certainly better than in the heavily hunted areas of the road system, but holiday hunts also mean a rich family time. While I grew up on family hunts from remote line cabins on a Southwestern ranc...
