Fish Board adds some order to scallop fishing, turns down rockfish proposal
With a unanimous vote, the Alaska Board of Fish has taken a step toward fixing a fisheries problem caused by the Alaska Legislature. Last year, the legislature failed to renew the state’s limited-access scallop fishing program, which expired at the end of last year. With no restriction on the number of boats that could fish for scallops, the state risked overfishing the commercially valuable scallop beds within 3 ...

Four teams invade Kodiak for Robin Hervey Tournament
Kodiak’s wrestling team should have considered changing its nickname to the Road Bears. When the team’s schedule was released in November, the Bears had two home dates but no teams to fill them. The first home event — Dec. 20-21 — was canceled because the team couldn’t find a school willing to commit. Kodiak’s coaching staff went to work after that trying to prevent another lost opportunity. “I wasn’t worried; I w...

In “Dallas Buyers Club” (2013) Woodroof is a rodeo bull rider and electrician who lives on the edge. He is a hustler in every sense of the word. Gambli...
