Some news from ANC:

--Heather Lende writes every week about living in Haines AK. This week, she starts thinking about Winter. If you see her book, please consider purchasing it.

--Fishing season is in full swing! There is apparently a salmon derby in Ship Creek, where they've tagged some fish and if you catch one, you win money!

--Lisa Murkowski, our US senator, shoots a gun for charity.

--Juneau kids will be getting out at 12:30 on Fridays so that teachers can build lesson plans on Literacy. I'm sure all parents, especially those that have to provide after-school day care, are really excited about that.

--Black is the new black: The challenge this year for Anchorage gardeners was incoroporating black flowers and foliage. It looks like many people succeeded!'s almost time for the Alaska State Fair again! Here is my description from last year.
