Kodiak Middle School should keep its word
To the Editor: There was time earlier in the school year when the school, specifically KMS, assured that rooms that are basically something from a psych ward would not be used unless a student is posing a physical threat. Recently, while in the building, there was a young lady in there quietly eating her lunch (granted, I don’t have details or the whole story on this specific incident). So now I must ask is it the...

Presenting a different perspective on fish processing
To the Editor: You recently published an article in the Kodiak Daily Mirror titled “Kodiak acts on tender issue." Please allow me to present a different perspective. Trident tendered approximately 7 million pounds of pollock from GOA area 620 to our Akutan plant. This fish was caught by vessels that regularly fish for Trident out of Kodiak and Sand Point. That amount represents about one and a half processing days...

"The Miracle Worker" cast did a great job
To the Editor: I was totally impressed with the teamwork of all the actors in the production of "The Miracle Worker" at the high school Friday evening. Helen's family was so overwhelmed, and the only solution they faced, was to put her in an institution. The energy put into the two characters, Anne Sullivan played by Kristen Nymeyer and Helen Keller played by Wetherleigh Griffin, as they portrayed the struggle it ...

Fish Factor: Research center studies crabs
Did you know that red king crabs are cannibals and eat their babies, but blue king crabs do not?

Those are just a few of the secrets being revealed at the nation’s top king crab research lab in Kodiak. Scientists at the Near Island center handle the yearly Bering Sea ki...

ComFish opens for business
ComFish kicked off on Thursday, and event planners said the annual fishing trade show might be getting too big for its bowl. This year’s show packs 43 booths into the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center, but the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the event, says that wasn’t enough space for vendors interested in participating.
