Looking back: Top sports stories of 2015
Every year I plan on keeping a running list of Kodiak’s top sports stories of the year, and every year I end up creating a list at the last second. That didn’t change in 2015. I’ve spent this week skimming the Daily Mirror website to come up with the top 10 sports stories of 2015. Like every year, there were streaks extended, shining superstars, state titles and deaths. Kodiak High School boys basketball assistant...

What will really matter 25 years in the future?
Tomorrow is the beginning of a new year. A fresh slate. A do-over. I love such times as these, to start over, with fresh resolutions to be a better, more faithful, new person. Fresh starts are a lot like a new-fallen snow, where all of the ugliness and grayness of our lives is temporarily covered, and we can take a breath and a snow day from our sense that we are no good. We can try anew to be better people. I als...

Justice to be pressing matter next year
A year has come and gone. But “year” has not always meant the 12 months in the Julian calendar. While today we spell “year” with a y, it has changed from the Old English “gear” (though pronounced nearly the same), which derives from the Proto-Germanic “jeram.” The Proto-Indo-European root “yer-o” means, more broadly, “season.” The Greeks transformed “yer-o” into “hora,” which could mean any part of a year, day, or...

TEEING OFF: Heading into the new year with high hopes
2016 is going to be the year of the Seattle Mariners. I can feel it. Gizzy can feel it. As much as I have enjoyed the Seahawks’ success over the past four years, I would go bonkers if the Mariners made the playoffs, something that hasn’t happened since 2001. I’m beginning to believe the Mariners’ lack of success is why Gizmo is sometimes a crab. He has really turned up his orneriness during the past week — I guess...

Walkers’ plan for PFD unfair to poor
To the editor: The governor finds support for his tax plan. Yeah, by the rich. His tax plan will hurt the poor across the island and state the most. His tax plan should not include using the permanent fund. People with disabilities, the poor, elserly and children depend on every last dollar from the permanent fund. His tax plan is a disaster for these groups. The governor needs a broader approach that includes a p...
