How to ruin a reputation

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 11/12/2014 - 9:02pm
Ketchikan has the reputation of being on an island with a poor deer population. I have my doubts. It could be something as simple as access, which would then make it pale in comparison to Prince of Wales — my home island. Students show me pictures of the bucks they got on POW. I tell them as long as they stay out of my spots, they can go get their deer. Friends head over there too. I tell them as long as they stay out of my spots, they can go get their deer.

Keeping life spicy in Southeast

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 11/12/2014 - 9:01pm
In October I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago. I spent much of my time walking around and taking in the amazing sites. This wasn’t my first time in Chi-town, and it certainly won’t be my last. I think October is a perfect time of year to visit. It’s not too hot, the fall foliage is breathtaking, and most attractions and activities are still open. While there, I went on two food tours, and in my opinion, that is the best way to see a city.

Shrink wrapping Clarissa’s limited edition Giclee prints, to be marketed during this Winter season 2014-15

This past week has been a bit nutty — While printing limited editions of some of my work, I’ve been cutting out and sewing spinning pads, splitting bark, spinning warp, designing a log for the Northwest Coast Weavers’ Supply, making travel arrangements, etc. etc. including but not limited to, the joy of holding a newborn granddaughter and of course time out with her older sister, Amelie!

Chilkat Warp Trick-of-Trade

Clarissa Rizal: Alaska Native Artist Blog - Tue, 11/04/2014 - 5:52am

Washed Chilkat warp is pulled tight and set out to dry

Here’s a trick-of-the-trade to create smoother, more even Chilkat or Ravenstail warp with no give: after you wash your warp, pull tight as you wrap the warp around the back of a chair — let dry thoroughly, then groom.

Why do you want a smother, move even warp with no give?  When you are weaving your weft yarns over this warp, you will notice a less bumpy, more evenly-laid fabric.

Periodically I post various tricks-of-the-trade in regards to spinning, weaving, designing or anything else I may think of to post here on my blog for all you wonderful artists/craftspeople out there in the world!–for more tricks, check out “Tools-of-the-Trade in the column to the right…

School District Report on Investigation into Hazing

Juneau School District Announcements - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 3:35pm

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.
