Southeast History: Bombs, Bolsheviks and salmon at Port Althrop

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 11:06pm
The period just before and especially during World War I was one of rapid expansion in the salmon industry. In Southeast Alaska, 36 new operations began between 1915 and 1918. What prompted this increase? Sockeye had been the most desired canned salmon in earlier years. Then the federal government purchased canned pink salmon for the overseas troops, thus opening a new market. Men hastened to join the bonanza.

Doctor Fermento: Pong goes pro as bars sponsor beer Sport

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 11:06pm
Beer games and beer-oriented sports have flourished with the rise of craft beer since the mid-1980s, but I don't get into them much. I don't drink beer for sport or competition. I generally shy away from such activities because in too many cases, they involve a higher degree of quicker consumption - and I usually suck at the game.

Southeast history: Water's power to chop down trees

Wed, 09/10/2014 - 2:19am
Electricity produced by water power is not a recent development in Alaska. A number of Southeast mines and sawmills in Southeast depended on waterfalls. One of these sawmills was located in Pavlof Harbor on Chichagof Island. Boats reached this bay by way of Freshwater Bay, which indents the island's east coast. Pavlof Harbor is located near the bay's mouth on the southern shore.

Thank you from Juneau Jazz and Classics!
