Mauer enjoying varsity success
Joey Mauer has a name fit for a baseball player. Kodiak’s senior outfielder shares the same name as Minnesota Twins star Joe Mauer. “Every game somebody will say it — they will go, ‘are you related to (Joe Mauer)?’ Or something like that,” Mauer said. Kodiak’s Mauer doesn’t mind being asked, especially since his favorite professional player is … wait for it … Joe Mauer. “He is a good player. He has done well in hi...

For Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, trips to Kodiak help show up his opponents for a U.S. Senate seat, Democrat or Republican. “I committed to be in Kodiak when I was here the last time for the fisheries debate,” Treadwell told the Mirror on the sidelines of the Crab Festival survival suit race Saturday.

Familiar moist weather is set to chase away the warm and sunny days of record-breaking May.

Kodiakans and other Alaskans have been complaining about huge pollen counts, sore throats and coughing. “The tree pollen is making quite a mess all over the harbor,” Kodiak harbor...

I was devastated to see the clear-cut logging taking place. Chiniak still has a chance to avoid the resource degradation that has permanently marred the Pacific Northwest.
