PETERSBURG — This year will set a record for the biggest harvest of sea otters from Alaska coastal communities, a trend that matches a growing population.
So far, this year’s harvest is at least 1,380 sea otters, but that number is expected to rise since most harvesting takes place in the fall, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Brad Benter told KFSK (http://is.gd/EomHDx).
That tops the 1,281 sea otters harvested in both 2011 and 2012.
BETHEL — Members of Bethel’s small Filipino population are reaching out to their families back home following the deadly typhoon that left scores of people dead.
A relief fundraiser for people affected by the typhoon is scheduled to be held between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday at the Catholic Social Hall in Bethel, KYUK (http://is.gd/cmsYBb) reported.
Editor’s note: This is the third in the Morris Communications series “The case for conserving the Kenai king salmon.”
There are very few things that can immediately quantify the declining value of sport fishing for Kenai River king salmon as quickly as the shelves at Trustworthy Hardware in Soldotna.
Gov. Sean Parnell announced Friday that Alaska will not participate in Medicaid expansion. Instead, he plans to create an advisory group to reform Medicaid in Alaska.
“I believe a costly Medicaid expansion, especially on top of the broken Obamacare system, is a hot mess,” Parnell said. “The president knows that.”
The expansion would have allowed anyone with an income of up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level to qualify for Medicaid. A single person in Alaska making $18,580 or less would’ve qualified, or $38,330 for a family of four.
From the middle of downtown to out the road and the southern reaches of Douglas Island, hundreds dot the landscape Juneauites call home. Yet most may walk past them routinely and not know they exist, but they are why Juneau is here.
They are the lost mines.
“You can walk the public trail, then veer off just slightly, and they’re right there,” said Brian Weed, a local who has found and explored hundreds of abandoned mines in Juneau over the past three years. “But they’re disappearing fast.”
ANCHORAGE — A month after a nearly 200-foot communications tower fell near Willow, a Matanuska-Susitna Borough committee is preparing to recommend new regulations for oversight of tall towers.
The five-member Tall Towers Advisory Committee is considering draft language that would require companies to notify property owners within 600 feet of a new tower before they begin construction, the Anchorage Daily News reported (http://bit.ly/1aIc4HS). The company could build the tower 30 days later.
The full moon lighting up Alaska's evening sky these days is the Beaver Moon – sometimes also known as the Frosty Moon or Hunter’s Moon. It peaks on Sunday but will appear largest on Saturday night.November 16, 2013
