From Our Listeners
ANCHORAGE — Two members of Alaska’s congressional delegation have introduced bills that would clarify that it’s OK for Alaska Natives to sell artwork adorned with bird feathers.
Under the legislation introduced by Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Rep. Don Young, some traditional Alaska Native art and crafts would be exempt from a provision of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act barring the sale of items containing the feathers and non-edible parts of migratory birds.
JUNEAU — A county government building in New Jersey has been dedicated to the USS Juneau.
The Wednesday ceremony was on the 71st anniversary of the sinking of the light cruiser during World War II, KTOO reported.
Two Japanese torpedoes sank the USS Juneau during the Battle of Guadalcanal, killing more than 600 U.S. sailors. Among the dead were 20 Hudson County, N.J., men.
Many of their family members attended the dedication ceremony as did City and Borough of Juneau Assembly member Randy Wanamaker.
FAIRBANKS — U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced plans to double the number of customs positions at Fairbanks International Airport, a move that will allow direct flights between Fairbanks and Dawson City, Yukon.
The federal agency last month denied a proposal by Whitehorse-based Air North to offer nine flights a week between the two cities. The agency cited a staffing shortage in Fairbanks that left it unable to process tourists flying from the Canadian community, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported.
KETCHIKAN — The Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show hasn’t disappeared — it’s being renovated.
“We’re sprucing it up!” said Shauna Lee, general manager of the downtown Ketchikan attraction near Thomas Basin that will mark its 15th year of operations in 2014.
The current project started just one day after the final cruise ship visit of the 2013 season, said Lee.
“The lumberjacks participated in taking the grandstands down,” she said.
Woodwright Construction is the Ketchikan contractor that’s handling all of the major construction work.
ANCHORAGE — If you’ve opened a newspaper from one of Alaska’s major cities, chances are you’re familiar with the work of Chad Carpenter, creator of “Tundra” comics. His pot-bellied, large-nosed, hapless cartoon characters have populated the local funny pages for 21 years, starting in the Anchorage Daily News and spreading to over 550 newspapers across the United States, Europe and even the Caribbean.
