audioListen to this KRBD story... The Ketchikan School Board Wednesday night voted in favor of placing White Cliff students at the Ketchikan Gateway Borough-owned Recreation Center next year. As Deanna Garrison reports, the move comes after Monday's decision by the Borough Assembly to stop studying options for repairing White Cliff and instead to permanently close the school to students.

audioKetchikan - Listen to this KRBD story... The Ketchikan Gateway Borough is considering filing suit against environmental groups seeking to halt efforts by the Borough to reopen its veneer mill in Ward Cove. In recent years, conservation groups have initiated national telephone and letter writing campaigns to pressure companies to pull out of negotiations with the Borough to purchase or lease the mill. Deanna Garrison has this report.

Alaska: Melting Beneath Our Feet - When it comes to climate change, most of us have heard about shorter winters, hotter summers, melting glaciers and thinning sea ice. But scientists say the ground beneath our feet is melting too. A report from the U.S. Arctic Research Commission says the study of permafrost-or frozen ground-should be a higher priority across the Arctic. - Read more...

Fish or Cut Bait by Bob Ciminel: Right on Red, Returning - One of the major causes of traffic accidents in the Atlanta area is violation of a law that allows you to make a right turn on a red light. The law is clear about what constitutes a legal right turn when facing a red light. "Vehicular traffic facing a steady CIRCULAR RED signal may cautiously enter the intersection to make a right turn after stopping . . . .Vehicular traffic shall yield the right of way to other traffic lawfully using the intersection." Unfortunately, most drivers in Atlanta treat a right on red as if it is a YIELD sign. Meaning, "If I can make it without you running into me I'm going for it because once I make that turn I own the road." - Read more...

photo Joann Flora...Joann Flora: So Whaddya Doin'? - I've been writing this health column for a while now, and have tried to present the best information I have on a variety of topics in which I hold personal beliefs. I've offered information about Chinese medicine, exercise, the value of motivation, body work, nutrition, and stories about what's working for others. Today it strikes me that it's time to ask the big question: So, what are you actually doing about 'whatever'? Define 'whatever': anything that doesn't work for you, such as disease, depression, boredom, inactivity, work stress, unhealthy relationships, annoying neighbors, the zit on your nose. Whatever. - Read more...

photo Dick MorrisDick Morris: Clinton Was Reagan's Ratifier - What was most unique about Ronald Reagan was his inner compass, his internalized sense of himself. Most politicians are narcissists. They lack a sure grasp of who they are and seek not only ratification but also self-definition in the eyes of others.

Hollywood, like Washington, is filled with narcissists. But Reagan spanned both cultures without needing to find his persona in the adoring eyes of either the film-going or the voting public. - Read more...

photosAlaska's Deepwater Highway; A part of Alaska history - When the first Alaska state ferry sailed northbound through the Inside Passage of Alaska on its maiden voyage in January of 1963, there was rejoicing along the entire route from Ketchikan to Haines at the head of Lynn Canal! At last! Cars and even trucks and vans could now travel to and from isolated island-bound towns all along the 450-mile length of Southeastern Alaska's Panhandle. At either end they could roll off the ferry's ramp onto terra firma, connected to road systems north or south! The roadless towns of the famed Inside Passage finally had a "highway" from Prince Rupert B.C. to Haines, Alaska - even if it happened to be paved with salt water and used marine charts instead of road maps. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
