As Gary Carver stepped through the grasses of a treeless Alaska island with an archaeologist friend, he spotted a bleached driftwood log. The log rested on sand about a half mile from the beach and 50 feet above sea level. Carver, on the island searching out Aleutian mummies for a Discovery Channel program, is an expert on tsunamis. He suspected that only a giant wave could have delivered a 30-foot log that high o...

Hundreds attend Harbor Lights Festival
Julian McCarthy stood in pouring rain that soaked his red suit, but his cotton white beard couldn’t hide his smile. “Want a candy cane? Take more than one,” he told passing cars again and again Saturday night at Oscar’s Dock. McCarthy, the Santa-dressed crewman of the F/V Stella, had more than Christmas cheer to celebrate. By the end of Saturday’s Harbor Lights Festival, the Stella was named the best-decorated boa...

Garden Gate: Searching for the right onion
Now that it’s officially winter, I tend to therapeutically indulge in seed catalogs.

Kodiak girls claim Lady T-Bird title
A weather delay didn’t slow down the Kodiak girls. Playing three games in two days, the Bears cruised to the Lady T-Bird Classic title Saturday at East Anchorage High School. Poor weather on the island kept the team from making their season-opening game Thursday. That forced Kodiak to play two games Friday. No problem.
