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...

Outdoor Kodiak: Silver salmon in rivers
The upstream portions of road system rivers open to salmon fishing Sept. 16. The rivers are teeming with silver salmon, and “opening day” is the highlight of the season for many anglers. But there’s a flip side. The best fishing holes may be crowded, and the fishing can deteriorate as quickly as tempers flare. I don’t like crowds, and I go to a lot of trouble to avoid them. Does that mean I have to forego hot fish...
