Valley to run at Boston Marathon
It’s never too late to start running. Kodiak’s Howard Valley is proof of that. Valley didn’t run his first mile before he was 60; it’s not like he didn’t try sooner, because he did. “I tried before, but I couldn’t make it,” Valley said. “I used to live across from a track in Anchorage in my 20s and I tried a couple of times to make a run at four laps.” Four laps is now just a warmup for Valley.

As of Wednesday evening, only nine girls age 9 through 12 have signed up to play softball, well short of the 24 girls needed to form two teams, Kodiak Little League secretary Candice Griswold said.

Kodiak Storm place fourth in Anchorage
The Kodiak Storm’s return to the Fools on Ice Tournament didn’t go as planned. Kodiak’s female hockey team went 0-3-1 to finish fourth in the four-team intermediate division in the three-day tournament that concluded Sunday in Anchorage. “Everybody skated really hard and we had fun,” team member Heather Norton said. “One of the biggest things to hurt us this year was not having the ice rink ready to go.” Skaters d...

Macahilas had already finished with a 218 and could only watch nervously as ...

The tournament showcases a pair of oil patterns that are used on the Professional Bowlers Association tour and are much more difficult than what bowlers see during league play. The bowler who can figure out the lanes the best walks away with a first-place prize of $1,000 — but that ...
