An Open Letter
Filed 06.18.2010
arrow
Everyone knows that Kokayi's passion is ending child hunger. He reminds us that we have a moral obligation as a country to feed our children through the school system. Evidently the legislature forgot and he is sharing his reminder in a public forum. Frankly, we endorse his passion and comments.

Michael received a masters degree and was all set to head in one direction , but then ended up going in another. It is all good as you will see, but one never knows where the path leads you until you start down the trail.

There is nothing more relaxing than fly fishing, or nothing more frustrating. Pudge Kleinkauf is Alaska's best known fisher who has been training other women in the art of fly fishing for decades. Mindy took her class and can now be seen in streams around Alaska.

What Happens When
You Do It Right?

Dino really loves fast cars - it just makes his bones rattle as he speeds down the highway. Now you can push the speed limit in an all electric car from Tesla Motors. It's also really cool looking which helps pick up the cave babes on Friday night.

Dino has been a fan of thinking outside the fashion box for years ~ of course he has also been on the worst dressed list for millennia. Annie, on the other hand, was voted "Best Dressed" in school while sporting Doc Martens and why not, they are one cool boot. There's more to fashion as Annie denotes in this weeks column.

Even though he has been moving, getting his family settled in a new city, and starting a new job he still finds a little time to share the latest music review with our readers. Dino gives Ryan five bones for keeping the articles rolling.

The Tribe of Climbing
Filed 06.11.2010

In case you didn't know, Kelsey wrote a guide on climbing in Alaska. Never satisfied he is back at it updating the book by climbing the routes again. He is also including some new information. Only 150 routes to go and 45 days. Even Dino cannot match a goal that ambitious.

The Three Little Pigs, Part II
Filed 06.03.2010
arrow
Searching around the Internet, we discovered an 1886 version of the beloved children’ classic story, “Three Little Pigs.” Knowing something about the scholarship of Joseph Campbell, who decoded myth and fairy tale according to psychological archetypes, Creating Mental Atmosphere thought it would be nice to examine this delightful fairy tale from the mind-set that created it. In this column, we relate in the historical background of the familiar story.

Now We're Number Two
Filed 06.03.2010

The "top kill" didn't work. Now what ? Who knows, but they are still arguing about who's at fault and everyone seems to be saying they are in charge. Confused, so is Dino on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and is wondering where the leadership is coming from ~ it at all.

There are lots of ways to save money, but we seldom think about consignment shops. Annie talks about consignment stores and how to save 50 - 75% on items that are like new.

The Three Little Pigs

We all know the story behind the Three Little Pigs, or at least we thought we did. Kokayi's story this year puts a different spin on the story with a reflective outcome making it worth the read.

The next generation of leadership in Alaska is starting to take shape in the under 40 crowd. Sixty three individuals attended the Emerging Leaders Dialogue in Sitka, all under 40 from diverse industry professions from all across the state. Watch out Alaska . . . here they come and it's about time.

And it Continues . . .
Filed 05.14.2010

Oil, oil everywhere, but no one wants to take the blame. As new evidence continues to come to the forefront, the only one with the big black eye is BP. Of course it's not really their fault . . . it's Transocean, or is it Halliburton. Dino is so confused.

"I see beautiful, talented people who, for all intents and purposes, are depressed.  Yes, they are chasing the material comforts of the American Dream, however, they do not appear fulfilled internally." This is the conclusion of Kokayi's article on poverty.

Back when Dino was young and roamed the Earth freely everything was made by hand. Handmade products are highly sought by savvy buyers because the creator puts a lot of love into their wares. If you are not convinced then read Annie's latest article on handcrafted items.
