'The Wallcreeper' and the kookaburra

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 08/19/2015 - 3:12am
In May, the New Yorker ran a profile on a writer that opened with the description of the crazy call of the kookaburra. "A classic evil laugh, bwahahahahaha, à la Vincent Price in 'Thriller'" is only the description of the first part of the kookaburra's five-part alarm. At one point, the bird "appears to become an entire dinner party going to pieces."

Meals with Midgi: Bring on the rain

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 08/19/2015 - 3:12am
Well, it's almost fall here in Juneau. I am reminded of that axiom, "when the fireweed has turned to cotton, summer time will be forgotten." The fireweed is definitely turning and Mother Nature did her part with the weather, giving us a few days of rain. Serious rain. Like the rain that makes one want to cuddle up with a glass of wine and a good book. Alas, this is not the case for many of us in the visitor industry. The rain doesn't keep us from sharing our amazing city with visitors. Our motto at my company is "Rain or Shine, We Dine." If we didn't do things in Alaska because of the rain, we'd never do anything.

At Least One Kidney

What Turtle Blood Tastes Like - Tue, 08/11/2015 - 5:46pm

a token
or two
scavenged from
the wild

gone feral

two hours
pacing dark
tide creeping
beach bisected
by creeks
ribbons of
black ice

a whole
frozen liver
at least one
on the

deer fur
of what’s
to come

i know
a leash could
prevent this
the hours
what will
be brought back
if he will
even come

the wild one
nearly feral
for so long

he always
comes back
this time
with a four
point buck

its head
at least
frozen tongue
sticking out
of ice clenched jaw

the dog
i share the bed
with sometimes
spinal column
of nerve
and thawed

i put
the dog
take up
the heavy
coal shovel
and with the
toe of my
boot, rock
the death
head into
the shovel’s flat blade
go to the garage
and dump
it in the bottom
of the trash

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.
