Outdoors: The long season for silvers
Isn’t it great to have so many silver salmon at hand! This is the season we’ve all been waiting for. But in truth the luster has worn off a bit, hasn’t it? We’ve all caught lots by now, and the crowds have been a hassle. Is it time to think about moving on? That’s not a bad idea if you have another passion tugging at your heartstrings, but I wouldn’t be too hasty to put away your fishing tackle. As good as the fis...

All the debris is kept at a fenced-in site on Coast Guard property a couple miles out on Anton Larsen Bay Road while ITN works on getting it disposed of. There are dozens of bags along with piles of debris like crab pots, tires, ...

The Bears advanced to the gold bracket — the best of three brackets — and lost to South Anchorage, 25-14. 25-16 to bow out of the tournament, a tournament they finished second at last season. “We forced South to earn every point; we didn’t go easily,” Kodiak coach Amy Willis said.

Bears breakout against Barrow
Kodiak didn’t have much to celebrate in the first five weeks of the high school football season. The Bears had plenty to celebrate in Week 6. Kodiak let out its frustrations under sunny skies Saturday at Joe Floyd Track and Field with a 38-6 nonconference win over Barrow. “This game was a lot of good help for our team,” junior lineman Jake Yavorsky said. “Having a good win peaked people’s spirits up.” Yavorsky got...

Garden Gate: Baking with gooseberries and currants
Puzzles are fun, especially when it involves something near and dear to us, like food. Years ago, during one of our dinner cruises, I served a dessert made with a secret ingredient. (I often do this as an excuse to try something new, and to educate guests at the same time). After Marty set a plated dessert at each place setting and began to pour coffee, I stepped in from the galley to describe what’s before them. ...

Small stars as a kick returner
Jay-Ar Small is a man of few words. “He is a quiet kid,” Kodiak football coach Jim Schnick said. “I have known Jay-Ar for four years and I can’t get him to talk to me.” Small might not talk much, but that is OK with the coach, because his play does all the talking for him. Kodiak’s senior running back has been a bright spot on an uncharacteristic 1-4 season. “He is one of the hardest workers on the team, no questi...
