TEEING OFF: Wilson has played his way into MVP race
It has come to my attention that small dogs do not appreciate inclement weather. It has been a hassle getting Gizmo and Pepper Jack to do their business outside this past week. When I open the door, and both dogs see the frightful conditions awaiting them, they turn into statues. I don’t blame them.

TEEING OFF: A new sport debuts at Kodiak High School
Kudos to those who spotted the goof in Thursday’s paper. You are a superstar proofreader. Grab yourself a cookie from the cookie jar. If you missed the mistake, and I don’t know how you did, flip to Page 8. I’m glad I was able to provide you with a laugh. Heck, even I got a chuckle out of it. For the online readers, I ran three photos of the Kodiak High School girls basketball team practicing. In the cutline, I ty...

Longtime Kodiak resident finds footing in racehorse business
Duane Freeman will tell you that owning racehorses is like playing the lottery — you lose more than you win. After years of being in the business, Freeman finally hit the jackpot. On Nov. 1, Freeman’s horse, My Dandy Girl, raced to victory at the Pepper’s Pride New Mexico Classic Championship Fillies and Mares. The trip to victory circle came with a payout of $108,300. “You really have to be an optimist to be in t...

Teeing Off: Battle of undefeateds
The Golden State Warriors are hotter than a cup of hot chocolate on a cold Kodiak winter day. The team from California has rattled off an NBA-record 20 straight wins to begin a season, and have produced 23 straight victories dating back to last season’s playoffs. Dig deeper and the Warriors have not lost a regular-season contest since April 7. Can Stephen Curry and Co. become the first team in the association to g...
