OUTDOOR KODIAK: The secret season
Which hunting season is most overlooked? It slips by so quietly, you might even call it Kodiak’s Secret Season. In fact, it opened a week ago, and it even slipped past me. I’m talking about ptarmigan. The season opened August 10, but somehow I had it in my head that it didn’t open until August 20. It’s easy to overlook the ptarmigan hunting on Kodiak, because on the road system anyway, you mostly find them only at...

Let’s reflect on Kodiak’s priorities
Back in my college years, I had a college economics professor whose favorite saying was “what do you want — guns or butter?” If you have limited resources and unlimited demand for goods and services then logic dictates that you determine priorities and concentrate those limited resources on those things that are essential. It is apparent to some of us in Kodiak that we have a severe meth and heroin addiction probl...

DERBY CHAMP: 3-year-old bests 131 anglers
She caught a pink and went home with a green. Delyna Froehlich hooked a salmon that weighed 5 pounds and 11 ounces, winning the Kodiak Kids Pink Salmon Derby on Saturday, organizers said. Nothing newsworthy about that, except that she’s not even 3 years old yet, organizers said, describing her fish as a monster. Froehlich used a small fishing rod, but won a big bicycle — the grand prize — for besting 131 other com...

GARDEN GATE: When things don’t grow as planned
My attempt to grow bush-type zucchini plants in the greenhouse produced a total of three squash. Oh, there were plenty of flowers that received the bliss of pollination, but within days, the flower end of the “fruits” developed a bruise. Then the bruise grew into a brown and moldy mass. Yuck. Chalk one up to experience. Well-balanced soil provides for all of a plant’s needs. Yes, yes, I preach and strive for that ...
