Alaska Science Forum: Rafts of birds overwintering in the Bering Sea
Like flecks of pepper on chowder, all of the spectacled eiders on the planet are now gathered amid sea ice and steaming open leads in the Bering Sea. "It's a mass of life in this desolate area," said Matt Sexson, who once rode an icebreaker to see the winter gathering south of St. Lawrence Island. Sexson, a biologist with the USGS Science Center in Anchorage, just handed in a draft of his Ph.D. chapter on the crea...

NLC Power Rankings: Kodiak’s boys are a tale of two teams

What is going on? “I think it is part of conditioning. I’m playing these guys a lot of m...

Jay Hammond must be rolling in his grave
In his first term as senator, the young Jay Hammond sought a way to protect education and fish and game commissioners from political cleansing by the then new Republican administration. Sen. Hammond devised and passed a clever way to balance the system: An appointed board for fish management, another appointed board for game management and an appointed board of education.

Can you say recall?
To the Editor, I had every intention of speaking today about the city council meeting last week in which I saw my first uniformed armed guard since visiting the death chamber of the Walla Walla State penitentiary back in the late 60s and early 70s.
