Bowling tourney set for Sunday
One of Kodiak’s richest bowling tournaments takes place Sunday at Tropic Lanes. The sixth Spenard Builders Supply Pro-Build Championships begins at 1 p.m. The tournament is different than most held in Kodiak because of the difficulty of the oil patters. “It is one of the fairest tournaments,” co-tournament founder Stefan Machalias told the Daily Mirror in 2012. “Nobody has an advantage.

ROCKIN' OUT: Loggins takes off on hit soundtrack
The “Top Gun” soundtrack is one of the most popular soundtracks of all time. It reached platinum nine times!
