Hunting mountain goats and deer on Kodiak Island
“In order to arrive at what you do not know/You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.” - T.S. Eliot, from East Coker I’m staring at a mountain. It’s early morning in late November, my mug of coffee billows in the shallow light. The snow of yesterday, which tops those spired peaks beyond, melted overnight.

THE COASTAL FORAGER: You can eat spruce trees
Hello, neighbors and friends; welcome to my column. Allow me to introduce myself briefly. I spent a good chunk of my childhood in Kodiak and have zipped back and forth between the rock and Washington during my 20s and 30s. Like many Alaskans I grew up in a house with Mason jars lining cupboards and frozen fillets of halibut and salmon stacked in our deep freezer. My family enjoyed the fat of the land. We fished, h...

Tapestry: A bear encounter among the petroglyphs
I really wanted to climb that mountain. The path was worn and the brush stubby enough to allow me to gauge my surroundings. The plateau at the top would provide a stunning view of Alitak Bay. I had spent the day visiting and interviewing Woody Knebel, the superintendent at Ocean Beauty Alitak Cannery. He brought me to a little chapel he built for the cannery workers. The chapel was at the base of a mountain trail....

With time ticking off the game clock, and Kodiak trailing Wasilla by double figures, coach David Anderson peered down the bench and motioned to three players. Chris Caguing, Brian Caguing and Augistine Caguing all stood up, strolled to the scorers’ table and nestled side-by-side on one knee waiting for a whistle. The whistle finally came with 1 minute, 10 seconds left in last Saturday’s game, and for the first and...
