Discover Kodiak draws new tourism map
Kodiak’s tourism bureau is redrawing the map of Kodiak. Discover Kodiak isn’t building a road or a new building — it’s recreating a street map used by thousands of Kodiak visitors each year. Chastity Starrett, member services manager at Discover Kodiak, is the person in charge of the mapping project. For now, she said, the job is one of salesmanship. Ads line the borders of the three-color map, and Kodiak business...

Hypocrisy and the smoking ban
To the Editor: There’s a lot of hypocrisy going on almost most matters. One in particular is cigarettes, pipes and cigars. They sell tobacco to you because it’s legal and at a high price! After a person has bought tobacco, where do you smoke it? “You can’t smoke here.” “You can’t smoke there.” “It is illegal to smoke here.” They are getting so nosey you can’t smoke I your own home, car or boat! The “do-gooders” as...

Outdoor Kodiak: Pink salmon summer fun
For me, the arrival of pink salmon in July is the true onset of a Kodiak summer. I’m happy to report that summer arrived in full force last week! We saw pink salmon almost everywhere we expected to see them, and we caught them until our arms shouted for a break. The large schools of pink salmon begin to arrive in mid-July, timed for warm days and lazing on the beach. They’re the perfect family fish because they’re...
