Friday baseball: Stars beat Kards in walkoff fashion

Bird is the word. Trayton Bird, that is. The Soldotna freshman helped rally the Stars baseball squad to a 5-4 victory over Kenai Central Friday evening at the Soldotna Little League fields with a high-flying walkoff hit. After seeing the Kardinals score a go-ahead run in the top of the seventh inning that put them up 4-3, Bird found himself at the plate with the bases loaded and one out. He preceded to knock out a deep line drive double to left field that scored Mason Prior and Terrance Slats.

Op-ed: Truly memorializing Memorial Day

I admit it, I read my Facebook newsfeed. On frequent occasions, I am moved to tears by the video of a member of our armed forces surprising his loved ones as he returns safe and sound from a combat zone.

Op-ed: The falso god of politics

If you visit Mount Olympus, you will see scores of crumbling statues to false gods once worshipped by ancient Greeks. The same is true in Rome, where statues of political gods, notably those named Caesar, lay in ruins. We are more sophisticated today.

Speak up if you've heard this one before. Kenai Central senior Allie Ostrander posted a new high among prep runners in the girls 3,200 meter race on day 1 at the Region III track and field championships Friday afternoon under mild, sunny skies at Ed Hollier field in Kenai. Ostrander lapped the entire field en route to setting the Region III record, as well as improving her own national high school girls record this season, with a blazing time of 9 minutes, 58.74 seconds.

Learning for Life: Chick fever is in the air

It is what it is: Breathe it all in

I love the smell of wet dog in the morning. It smells like summer. In fact, there are a lot of scents you get to experience during the Alaska summer that you just don't get to enjoy during the winter.
