Kodiak canneries important to Alaskans' history Dear Editor,
Nearly 50 people gathered during the last session of ComFish on Saturday to hear fellow Kodiakans share their knowledge about a handful of our archipelago's historic canneries. We heard from Linda Eaton, who recently discovered that her family's cannery-turned lodge at Zachar Bay was founded as a co-op and is one of four canneries that once existed in the relatively small bay. Wallace Fields told us ...
Outdoor Kodiak: Trout in lakes Are you anxious for cooperative fish but having no luck with Dolly Varden?
Since your trout tackle is tuned and handy, why not try for rainbow trout stocked in road system lakes by ADF&G?
Let’s get one thing straight before you write off “stockers.”
The rainbows in local lakes are like no other stocked trout!
In most places trout are raised large enough for catching before they leave a hatchery. As a result they ...
School board budget changes will affect students Dear Editor,
On April 10, the KIBSD superintendent presented the proposed budget for the 2013-14 year to the School Board. The district is anticipating a $1 million shortfall, which it is planning to cover by not replacing 11.5 teacher and 4 special educator positions, along with reductions in instructional aides and sereupport staff.

Get Mayor Selby out of office To the Editor:
Our brainless borough mayor has cost us taxpayers big bucks for his stupidity again. Three weeks ago I wrote the editor and told you people what he was doing with suing an assemblyman and now you can read it in the Kodiak papers of April 2 and 9. Mr. Selby does not do his homework before he opens his big mouth. I know what rules Mr. Stephens has to follow as an attorney, as I did my own attorney wor...
Kodiak Middle School should keep its word To the Editor:
There was time earlier in the school year when the school, specifically KMS, assured that rooms that are basically something from a psych ward would not be used unless a student is posing a physical threat.
Recently, while in the building, there was a young lady in there quietly eating her lunch (granted, I don’t have details or the whole story on this specific incident).
So now I must ask is it t...

Presenting a different perspective on fish processing To the Editor:
You recently published an article in the Kodiak Daily Mirror titled “Kodiak acts on tender issue." Please allow me to present a different perspective.
Trident tendered approximately 7 million pounds of pollock from GOA area 620 to our Akutan plant. This fish was caught by vessels that regularly fish for Trident out of Kodiak and Sand Point. That amount represents about one and a half processing days...
