FISH FACTOR: Fish and Game could faces state fund cuts
A nearly $12 million cut in state funds is on tap for the Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game if state policy makers have their way. That was one early outcome of legislative House finance subcommittee meetings last week, as they wrapped up the first step in a budget process that will see cuts in agencies and programs almost across the board.

THE COASTAL FORAGER: You can eat spruce trees
Hello, neighbors and friends; welcome to my column. Allow me to introduce myself briefly.

Like many Alaskans I grew up in a house with Mason jars lining cupboards and frozen fillets of halibut and salmon stacked in our deep freezer. My family enjoyed the fat of the land. We fished, h...
