Port Lions runner joins Kodiak team in California
Chandra Christiansen will be running in just her fifth cross-country race on Saturday. To commemorate the event, she picked a race that could have as many or more competitors as her hometown has residents. Christiansen lives in Port Lions, a village with roughly 200 residents on the north end of Kodiak Island. So, it is easy to understand why the freshman is a bit nervous to be traveling to Walnut, California to c...

Levi Fried headed to run at Black Hills State University
Levi Fried signed his National Letter of Intent with little fanfare. While most signings are bursting with hoopla, Fried quietly signed his letter of intent last week to run cross-country and track and field at NCAA Division II Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota. “I didn’t think it would be a big deal until it was right in front of me,” said Fried on signing the piece of paper. “There is no lo...

Nelson, a freshman guard, played only one minute in UAA’s 72-63 victory over NCAA Division I Yale at the Alaska Airlines Cen...

Teeing Off: This news week is for the dogs
What a zany news week in Kodiak. In my eight years here, I don’t recall a week quite like this. A stabbing a block away from the Daily Mirror office, a captain drunk at the wheel of a boat that was grounded not just once, but twice, and a person in Chiniak who mistook oil fuel for water and blew up a banya. The topper of the week goes to the unveiling of Kodiak’s underwear bandit. All the ladies in Kodiak can brea...
