Meals with Midgi: Living the Dream

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 7:09am
I have said many times I love living in Alaska. I particularly love living in Juneau, Alaska's capital city. I was privileged to travel quite a bit growing up and of all the places I've been or lived, Juneau is my favorite. I'm not sure if it's the beautiful, clean air. It may be the incredible scenic surroundings. It could be the friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It also may be the fact that we have the hustle and bustle of a million visitors to our city in the summer and the movers and shakers of the state here in the winter. Of the many reasons I can name as to why I love living here, one of the top reasons is the food scene.

Bringing history to life

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 12:00am
Juneau residents gathered to share their memories and impressions of Tlingit civil rights activist and lawyer William Paul Sr. last week on what would have been Paul's 130th birthday, May 7, one week before the May 15 dedication of the Walter Soboleff Building's archives facility in his name. The meeting, organized by local lawyer and researcher Kathy Ruddy for the second year in a row, welcomed input from about a dozen participants, some of whom knew Paul personally, with a larger goal of bringing recognition to Paul's contributions to Alaska history.

2 starts, both fall into the item cat <far from profound>

</end speculation>

order of operations

i’m perpetually taking things apart
that I put together prematurely
always skipping what seem like
poorly written instructions
that turn out to be essential

maybe i should look at this deck
like a math problem
maybe this life too
I should be working backwards
reverse engineering a solution
based on the idealized finished product
rather than working fast forwards
then four steps backwards when
it becomes clear
i cannot drill pilot holes
for lag screws
for rail posts
once the deck boards are in place

in place(s) though
frequently out of place

i’m the guy in the fuzzy GIF
never quite dropping my hammer
on the head of a hard to reach


mirror mirror

am I seeing?
is that me or the idea of me?
is that reflection, misshapen by cheap laminated plastic
a document?
a curated [framed] representation {abstract}
of what I think I am?
certainly easier to put that on display
hang that idea of me on a white gallery wall
than to take the actual me (whoever/whatever/wherever)
that is
and place me out of place in that place
where people seek to see art representing place

School District Report on Investigation into Hazing

Juneau School District Announcements - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:35pm

The Juneau School District has concluded our investigation into allegations that on or about May 30-31 of this year a group of incoming senior boys hazed/initiated a group of incoming freshmen boys by paddling them multiple times.

These events were first brought to our attention in early June. At that time the district began an initial investigation, which, due to an active police investigation and summer vacation, was put on hold. When we were informed that the police had concluded their investigation we resumed our efforts.
