KHS volleyball remains perfect
Four matches in three days. No problem. Kodiak’s volleyball team remained undefeated in Northern Lights Conference play by finishing its trip to the Kenai Peninsula with a pair of wins over Soldotna and a victory against Kenai. Two weeks into the season and the Bears stand at 6-0 in the NLC. Kodiak escaped a pair of five-game thrillers — one each against Soldotna and Kenai — to keep its best start since the 2013 s...

Garden Gate: Bulbs do well here, brighten dreary spring
I never really appreciated bulbs until I planted four dozen crocus bulbs in our lawn a few Septembers ago. It was the fall before our last big snow year.

TEEING OFF: Dealing with a loss
Most years, the start of the National Football League season is a joyous occasion at the Clarkston house. Not this year.

It’s not exactly what I wanted to deal with on the first day of my bachelor life. The mom of the house left for a two-week trip to Pennsylvania the day before. I bro...
