  • The bulls won the weekend at the Ninilchik Rodeo. Riders had no luck on John Wayne, Dark Town, Hizenberg and Calico as all jumped — or were thrown — before the eight-second mark.  Just one rider, Chris Manis, managed to best a bull named Snubbin Post to win both the weekend of bull riding a...

  • Back in late June this column reported on a plethora of angling misconducts Alaska Wildlife Troopers had to deal with because of clueless dipsticks.   I was hoping that things would chill out with the scofflaw crowd because the piece sent a pretty blatant warning that they were being watched an...

  • In the grueling Alaska Mountain Wilderness Classic, where contestants race unsupported through the wildest country of Alaska, just finishing can be an honor.

  • It’s no secret that Homer has a vibrant boating community.

  • Although 10 boats competed in the annual Land’s End Regatta put on by the Homer Yacht Club, most agreed that the tide was the real winner.   Two days of sailing with no wind left participants in the regatta being pushed backward by the tide and disheartened. “The tide definitely won over th...

  • I was asked yesterday what I thought about lingcod. I deliberated for a few seconds and then replied, “Well I know from personal experience that they are Freddy Kruger gruesome, have a set of choppers that would give a salmon shark a coronary, and enjoy making a brunch out of their own relatives.&...
