Actual bears more important than statue
While I don’t want to rain on the “Rebuild the Bear” campaign, I do find it a little disturbing that the focus of bear conservation in this community would be a bear statue and not the living, breathing bears that live with us. Hopefully, I am not the only one who has noticed the uptick in DLPs (defense of life and property) since roll carts have been introduced. If you are a business or agency, such as Alaska Sta...

How to die well getting more consideration
What would dying well look like for you? OK. Now that I've lost all the people who don't even want to think of dying, we can get down to what I think is a very important topic. Dying well. At first glance, my thinking is, "Oh great. One more thing I have to work on." But it was a topic that filled half a day at Providence Hospital in Kodiak when palliative care expert Dr. Ira Byock visited chaplains, palliative ca...
