Exploring wheat beer season

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 07/15/2015 - 2:37am
This is wheat beer drinking season for sure. Our abnormally dry and especially hotter summer begs for light, crisp beer, and I'm in the throes of the mood. Sure, there are golden ales, lagers and other light summer sippers, and I have my favorites, but when it comes to what I call certifiable "deck weather" in Alaska, nothing satisfies me more that a true, Bavarian style wheat beer.

A compromising position

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 07/15/2015 - 2:37am
It's July, and as many in Juneau know, July is the busiest month of the year. During the summer, more than a million visitors come to Alaska's capital city and I think most of them are here in July.

Yes, the streets are full of folks with mouths opened in awe at the beautiful scenery we enjoy each and every day, and yes, there are those who forget about the crosswalks and walk into the road without really looking, because they are so enamored with the beauty of their surroundings. However, it's important to remember we've all been visitors somewhere, and I believed that when you go on vacation your brain does to. Stuff happens. Assume positive intent and welcome these fine folks to our city, as we would want to be welcomed to theirs.

Cavanaugh brings his original music to new ears

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 07/15/2015 - 2:37am
Even without the guitar, microphone and considerable stage presence, Archie Cavanaugh is impossible to miss during a recent lunch hour rush at the Gold Creek Salmon Bake near Twin Lakes. Dressed in fire-engine red from his hat all the way down to his fancy shoes, Cavanaugh is a dramatic bright spot on a gray day, a visual that coincides with the upbeat music he's chosen to share with his audience. Over an '80s-era jazz-funk bass beat, Cavanaugh sings lyrics he wrote decades ago on a song called "Foolin'":

A dream come true? Probably not

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 07/15/2015 - 2:37am
I'm not sure why, but I left the table and took my skiff upriver. Upon reaching a predetermined point, I turned around. On my way back to wherever I was going, a small humpback whale surfaced and rolled. I continued past and arrived at where I was going to see that my table had been moved and people were eating dinner.

The break down

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 07/15/2015 - 2:37am
The highs and lows of fishing have been written and spoken by anglers since hooking fish in the mouth became a fun way to enjoy down time. At its core, catching a fish is good and losing a fish is bad, but anyone who has fished will tell you, there are a lot of circumstances that make both much better, or much worse.
