PREP PICKS: Kodiak to get taste of Friday night football
Kodiak fans will get a taste of Friday night football tonight at Joe Floyd Track and Field. I didn’t play football in high school — my career ended in eighth grade when I tore up my left wrist — but I never missed a Friday night game at Davis Field in Elma, Washington. The hometown Eagles were such a draw, that you had to show up hours before the game if you wanted to sit in the covered grandstands, which was the ...

It was the green of the Colony Knights. Kodiak and Colony matched up for the inaugural high school tennis matches on the isla...

Kodiak plays Juneau at 5:30 p.m. today in a rare Friday night game at Joe Floyd Track and Field. The last time the Bears ...

Teeing Off: Picking against the Hawks
It doesn’t happen very often, but this week I’m picking against the Seattle Seahawks. Yes, this 12 is going against his team. This doesn’t mean that I won’t be rooting for the Seahawks when they play Sunday night at Green Bay, I just don’t see them winning. Without Kam Chancellor, the Hawks’ secondary looked horrendous against the Nick Foles-led St. Louis Rams. The D gave up eight pass plays of more than 20 yards ...

Christians need to practice more humility
Sometimes I just get so tired. I know, it's not even winter, when the days will be shorter, and our world will be dark for 16 hours a day. I actually like the short winter days, with their implicit permission to stay indoors and read or get house stuff done. And yes, I admit it, play MahJongg on my iPad. No, the things that make me tired are more people-related things. After all, relationships are what is of highe...

Man catches southern fish in Kodiak
A Kodiak man caught a Pacific Pompano near Kodiak, a fish not typically found in the chilly waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Brad Kutyna was fishing in late August near buoy four, jigging for halibut with a flasher behind with a squid for salmon, when he hooked the Pompano. “For such a small fish, it was quite a fight,” Kutyna said. “As good or better than a salmon, really.” Kutyna and his brother-in-law Gary Anthony...
