Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:45pm
Juneau residents Rob Cadmus and Kate Glover recently returned from a three-and-a-half year sailing trip around the Pacific Ocean. On their journey they spent some time in Vanuatu, recently hit by Cyclone Pam, one of the worst natural disasters in Vanuatu's history.

Fishy bills to watch

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:45pm
Seven times is the charm for building some momentum on a measure that aims to give personal use (PU) fisheries a priority over commercial and sport users. As it stands now, the three fisheries all are on equal footing in the eyes and actions of state managers.

Book review:'Iditarod: The First Ten Years'

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
There was a moment, paging through "Iditarod: The First Ten Years" when I had to stop and stare at a picture.

Wet with worry

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
Mixed in with the excitement of fishing with friends on my old California rivers came a single nightmare. It wasn't the people and crowded pavement, though that's always a shock. Actually, the ability to drive places on that crowded pavement is quite nice. When you live in Southeast, sometimes it's nice to be able to drive and not have the highway narrow to a street, then a road, then a trail with pull-outs too over-grown with alders to turn around. It's refreshing yet terrifying to know that I am connected by grey strips to New York City.

What's happening this week

Where are we, anyway?

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
Tenakee Springs - A few of us were standing around the coffee machine in the store the other day. The conversation had rambled along from the recent sale of a building lot in the center of town to the re-building of the old Snyder Mercantile, a project that has provided steady work for several guys and one woman for over a year now. That lead to the mention that the summer people would soon be returning and that the general level of activity around town would lurch up soon as tourists begin to wander through.

The Beer Up Here

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
When I started writing about beer, I had to do it the hard way. The internet was in its infancy and virtually every shard of information I got about beer came from chasing it down, visiting the breweries and talking to the brewers. Of course, I miss the tight-knit connection I developed with our local brewers. I still remain firmly in touch, despite gleaning most of my information from brewery websites, social media and the like. I didn't even have a cell phone back then; they weren't invented yet. Fast forward to today. The internet has made it easier to find information, be in touch and stay in touch.

Reading Foreign: Fiction ripped from the headlines

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
"Readers may remember that before the current uprising against Bashar Al Assad, there was also an uprising against his father, Hafez, and it is this period of unrest that forms the focus of the novel," writes Leri Price in his translator's note to Khaled Khalifa's 2006 novel "In Praise of Hatred."

A Little Touch of Harry at McPhetres Hall

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
I am a big fan of Theatre in the Rough's productions of Shakespeare, and this new production of "Henry V" does not disappoint. A sometimes brilliant director, Aaron Elmore knows these plays better than anyone else in Juneau and always seems to uncover new facets to Shakespeare's lines. So let me say right off the bat: Go see this play. It's one of Shakespeare's masterpieces, and our Theatre-in-the-Ruffians do a good job of bringing it to life.

Someone gives you a machine that allows you to go anywhere you want. Where do you go?

The top of Mount Roberts. It's the only way I'm going to get there.

Letter from the editor

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
Festival season is upon us in Southeast Alaska. This weekend, Skagwegians will welcome hundreds to their community for the Buckwheat Ski Classic, marking winter's end with a distinctive celebration of snow. Next weekend, Ketchikan will celebrate a harbinger of spring - the Rufous hummingbird - with the start of its month-long Alaska Hummingbird Festival. And the week after that, beginning April 6, it's the Alaska Folk Festival in Juneau - the official kick-off to warmer weather for many. From there, a different festival will be taking place somewhere in Southeast nearly every weekend through September. The CCW will be putting out its annual Fun & Festival Guide next month, but to help readers keep track of what's happening on a weekly basis, we've introduced a Southeast Spotlight box on page 2, highlighting a major event or festival in a Southeast community for the coming week. This spotlight will supplement our What's Happening listings on page 3.

Spring may be here, but at the Buckwheat, winter is coming

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
It was about 15 years ago that Pete Lucchetti decided to help build a skier aid station for the Buckwheat Ski Classic, an annual cross country ski race on the trails just north of Skagway.

The K.I.S.S. in Cooking

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 10:36pm
There is a management mantra know as K.I.S.S., Keep it Simple Silly. I live by this. Don't make things so complicated for yourself that it's either too difficult to manage or simply just no fun. Life should be fun. I know that we all have difficult times and face many challenges, some more than others, but don't make it harder by making things convoluted and confusing. Keep it simple.
