Yuuwa’iyut Sugt’stun Kicarmigmi: They are speaking Alutiiq in Anchorage
Anchorage has been described as Alaska’s largest village, so it makes sense that it’s become a second home for the native language of the Kodiak archipelago. Beginning in September, a group of Alutiiq language learners began meeting at Alaska Pacific University. Their two-hour Saturday afternoons have attracted as many as 20 Alutiiq speakers and learners, although usually it’s usually about half that size, said Jo...

Garden Gate: Back from a Hawaiian vacation
After a 2-week vacation in Hawaii, we stepped off the plane in Kodiak to a landscape that was much colder than how we left it. No more rain and squishy lawns. The dry, cool air tingled our noses and snow brightened the dull landscape we endured through January. The big thaw was over.

One mistake in the first place was to name it after a president. An insurance named after a president? Sounds dictatorial to me. Is this why they call the president “KING” now? Paul Revere is here! Wake up America! Again! Wa...

Fish Factor: A switch in bait could save halibut longliners money
Bait is always a big expenditure for many fishing businesses and pollock could help cut costs for Alaska halibut longliners who fish in the Gulf. Researchers have tested pollock in two projects to see if it might replace pricier chum salmon as halibut bait. Fish biologists use over 300,000 pounds of chums in their stock surveys each year, costing nearly half a million dollars. The baits are used at more than 1,200...
