Garden Gate: Cold remedies
It’s my birthday, and I have a cold. It began as a subtle awareness that something different was happening; a little odd; not quite right.

Girls enter postseason perfect
Amy Fogle doesn’t get nostalgic very often. But when the topic of the 2001 Kodiak High School boys basketball undefeated season comes up, even she cracks a smile.

Kodiak boys look to finish strong at NLC tourney
Kodiak’s boys basketball team was a possession away from possibly playing in last year’s Northern Lights Conference championship game. Trailing by three in the closing seconds of a semifinal game, a Palmer player swiped the ball from a Kodiak guard and went the other way for a dunk that sealed the Moose’s five-point victory.

Alutiiq Word of the Week: Ilangcarluku
– Discipline; Lecture Tuyum llangcaraa. – The chief is lecturing him. Historic sources agree that there was little crime in Alutiiq villages before the 1950s.

District-wide AD is not a one-person job
To the Editor, I am writing to express my concerns with the latest actions of the superintendent and the administrators in the central office. Over the past few years, I have been saddened and demoralized by my perception of a slow but steady decline of the Kodiak Island Borough School District and have felt powerless to do anything about it.
