Kodiak debuted at No. 5 in the preseason poll but has appeared in neither poll since. The Bears received at least one vote in both polls.

At his feet, a large purple trug, filled with vertical columns of red, pink and green rhubarb await their fate.

Sodexo, one of the world’s largest food service contractors - said last week that its policy is to only serve seafood certified by (you guessed it) the London-based Marine Stewardship Council.

Thomet, Fried produce top two finish at Skyview
Kodiak’s opening 2013 cross country meet proved that there is work to be done. Behind solid performances from the two Levis, Kodiak’s boys placed fifth at Saturday’s Skyview Invitational, while the girls, without top runner Adriane Horn, were 15th. “We have a lot of work to do, no doubt,” Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar said.
