photosKetchikan: Kayhi Class of 1964 Holds 40th Reunion - The Kayhi Class of 1964 gathered over the 4th of July weekend to celebrate their 40th reunion. Sitnews caught up with them during a picnic held at the Ketchikan home of Judy (Henley) Berg (Class of '62). Back in 1964 the editors of the class yearbook wrote in the front: "We, the staff of the 1964 Williwaw, hope you will always find pleasant memories in our book."

photo Howard DeanHoward Dean: U.S. Losing Status in the World - I was in London recently giving a speech to a major economic conference of global lenders and borrowers.

photosRemembering 'Swede' Risland (1915-1991);The town's most memorable logger - People still remember Swede Risland and chuckle when telling stories about him or about his incredible generosity. In his prime he made big money in the woods and all his life he gave it away as easily as he made it! The old logger was no fashion plate and in his later years he had to coax his battered old smoking and coughing yellow pickup all the way up Main Street until it gratefully reached the summit and rolled down Grant Street toward the tunnel - its cargo of salvaged miscellany rattling as it slid forward to clatter against the cab. Swede loved to clean out and organize long-neglected old warehouses and storage sheds and found many a rusty but still-good treasure waiting to be shared and recycled. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
