Salmon fishermen challenged to strike balance between enthusiasm, serious assessment
If only most people were as enthusiastic about their job as River Hanson is about his. River, who graduated from Kodiak High School this year, eagerly looks forward to “getting the seine wet.” That’s jargon for salmon fishing. This is River’s second year fishing on the Lynx. What does he like about salmon fishing? “Everything,” he said, with sparkling eyes and a look of anticipation on his smiling face. “I’m happy...

The news from California are drab. Apparently, the marine mammal rescue centers are flooded with starving sea lion pups and every day more arrive. Experts and volunteers are working overtime and the Sausolito Marine Mammal Rescue Center is begging for donations to help feed the large number of undernourished and often sick pups.
