Moderate fire danger in Kodiak
Kodiak might be drier than Phoenix, Arizona this month, but fire officials say the danger of wildfires is still on the moderate side. “The humidity’s still up,” said Bayside Fire Chief Bob Himes. “We’re still good.” Through the last day of the month, Kodiak has had just over 1 inch of rain, one-quarter its normal total for July.

Editor: I was intrigued by a recent letter which called for an elimination of public input at council meetings, apparently to prevent our councilmembers from flip-flopping. In this case, the flip-flopper was identified as Tuck Bonney. Call Mr. Bonney what you like, but I would much rather have him change his views in response to public feedback than to stubbornly cling to a position, no matter how ludicrous. Perha...
