Wandersee a clutch performer
Kodiak coach Amy Willis has preached the importance of team play this season. That philosophy has worked. The Bears are having their best season in program history. They enter today’s 4A state championships as the Northern Lights Conference champions with a 17-1 record. As much as volleyball is a team game, it’s hard to look past Kodiak’s 6-foot-2 outside hitter, Hannah Wandersee. She was named the NLC player of t...

Business Spotlight: Woodworker brings beauty and craftsmanship home from nature
There’s something holy about a forest. Walk along a cool wooded path at sunset, and you’ll realize why John Muir once said, “Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play and pray, where nature heals and give strength to body and soul alike.” That philosophy, or something like it, is what guides Dimitri Kulp, the face behind St. John’s Workshop, which creates Orthodox icon boards and handmade furniture. “...

Coast Guard gets tough on tankers
The US Coast Guard is cracking down on oil tankers violating safety regulations in Alaska waters.
