WASHINGTON, D.C. - Alaska's top two youth volunteers of 2015, Cassandra Adams, 17, of Ketchikan and Amara Sanguni, 13, of Juneau, were honored in the nation's capital earlier this month for their outstanding volunteer service during the 20th annual presentation of The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.

Dr. Fermento: A good read

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/20/2015 - 6:47am
I've been writing about beer for over a quarter of a century, and sometimes I think that maybe it's time I solidify my thoughts in a book about beer. It would be a stretch for me, but a healthy one, if I could just get off the dime and write something. In fact, when I accepted the position as a weekly beer columnist for the Press, I considered it an experiment.

'Monumental' art unveiled at Soboleff Building

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/20/2015 - 6:47am
The three art pieces created for the Water Soboleff Building were described by Sealaska Heritage Institute as "monumental," an adjective that applies not only to their size -- all three are believed to be the biggest of their kind in the world -- but to their significance and stature: each one represents a major new work by an internationally recognized master artist and is an important addition to Juneau artistic landscape.

What does the opening of the Walter Soboleff Building mean to you? Why did you want to come to the opening ceremonies today?

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/20/2015 - 6:47am
"It's making history and opening doors for artists, and continuing culture."

Art in unusual places

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/20/2015 - 6:47am
The CCW welcomes reader-submitted images of art in unusual or unexpected places. Photographers of all levels of ability are invited to send in images of natural or urban subjects that they find artistically inspiring or intriguing.

More than a building

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/20/2015 - 6:47am
To the many speakers and attendees at its May 15 opening ceremonies, the Walter Soboleff Building is a work of art, a home for culture, and a powerful symbol of Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian people's perseverance and strength. It's also a fitting tribute to Dr. Walter Soboleff, an ordained Presbyterian minister who passed away in 2011 at the age of 102, inspired many in Southeast Alaska with his Sunday morning radio broadcasts, and worked to cultivate Alaska Native pride at a time it was much needed.

Movie review: 'Pitch Perfect 2' isn't much to sing home about

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/20/2015 - 6:47am
Can we please talk about the snottiness of "Pitch Perfect 2"? It's seriously snotty. It's a two-hour lesson in how to act like a frenemy to your alleged friends. And it's not funny enough.

Old age and old boats

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/20/2015 - 6:47am
TENAKEE SPRINGS - Telling a good story is not as easy as it sometimes looks. Ask anyone who has ever seriously tried. First of all, you've got to snag the potential reader's attention long enough to get her or him to go along with you, only then can you get on to actually telling the story. Even then you're not done until you can find a way to end it in a way that leaves the reader satisfied that it's been worth sticking with you through the telling. This is all about how a good story came to an end last week.
