Week in Words: Risqué fish; listening out loud
We learned this week that everything you thought you knew about cod is probably wrong. That cod are not the monocle-wearing, cane-strutting sophisticates that grace the ocean deep. OK. I admit it. All I knew about cod came from my extensive knowledge of the Naboombu Lagoon in the Disney film “Bedknobs and Broomsticks.” It turns out, though, that cod do not speak with a British accent. In fact, they use their mouth...

State pays bigger bonuses to execs of profitless AAC
To the editor: In the Nov. 5 Kodiak Daily Mirror article “AAC to send team to New Zealand for contract,” AAC president Craig Campbell stated, “I’m trying very hard to make this a commercial operation, not a government operation,” in reference to the AAC and Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska (former Kodiak Launch Complex).

Amy Willis was a mess on Monday. While people constantly congratulated her for winning the Northern Lights Conference volleyball crown, Kodiak’s coach only had one thing on her mind — the weather. Last year, Kodiak had to forfeit its state volleyball tournament opener because the team couldn’t make it to Anchorage due to inclement weather on the Rock. Not wanting to see a repeat from a year ago, Willis and her squ...
