A storm warning for the Bering Sea got the Bristol Bay red king crab fishery off to a slow start Tuesday, with fishermen already facing the smallest allowable catch on record in Kodiak.
The Kodiak Island Borough School District is recruiting students for the Migrant Education Program, a federal grant program that serves students who participate — or whose parents participate — in subsistence fishing, commercial fishing and farming.
It is a dark and stormy morning. The wind makes noises in my chimney pipe and gusts are shaking the house. Occasional thumps from the roof tell of the spruce cones and branches that are falling onto the house. Outside, the trees are dancing wildly and the shadows of their moving branches are playing over the walls and windows of my dimly lit living room. As I look out into the street, leaves are swirling and a pair of greenish eyes is lit up by the light of the streetlamp, moving toward my house. It would be fitting if it were a black cat, but it is really just one of my neighbors walking his dog.
