I like to think I have a pretty good grasp on the English language. I used to roll my eyes when the teachers told us to highlight words we didn't know in our assigned readings and look them up.

I've often wondered just how many locally produced beers there are in the state of Alaska. It's got to be a lot. We have 23 licensed brewing companies at this point, with more on the way. Just mentally tinkering, if each of those 23 produced an average of 10 beers, that means that at any given time, we should have 230 local beers to choose from, right?

As a kid growing up, I was taught to treat others the way you want to be treated and respect our elders. So being by my grandparents most of my life, they had showed love and respect to the family. I knew then I wanted to be like them. My grandparents enjoyed the outdoors. They would go hunting, fishing, and picnicking as a family. My grandpa showed me what hard work was. He told me when you work hard for your money, it'll be the greatest feeling you will ever get, so go look for odd jobs and earn your first dollar. I did my first odd job by cleaning around my other grandma's house. It took around two hours to finish the job. She gave me $25. She said thanks for helping us out. I went back to my grandpa and showed him my hard earned money. He asked me, "So how does it feel to work hard for your money?" I said it felt good especially helping others when they need it. He said, "That's good. That is what being a Duncan is about. I'm proud of you."

You would think that a bunch of writers would be able to define a term clearly, but some of our prominent literati seem confused over what exactly is meant by the phrase "hate speech."
Admiralty, from many angles

T he impact of the Southeast Alaskan environment on residents and visitors can't be measured, but it can be appreciated, particularly in the work and words of the region's scientists, writers, artists and culture bearers. A handful of well-known Southeast Alaskans offered such an opportunity Saturday during an eight-hour catamaran trip to Admiralty Island, organized by KJ Metcalf and the nonprofit group Friends of Admiralty Island. Among them were Sitka whale biologist Jan Straley, Sitka writer John Straley, naturalist and author Richard Carstensen, naturalist and author Bob Armstrong, marine mammal specialist Kate Wynne, and Tlingit culture bearer Ben Coronell of the Yanyeidi (wolf) clan of the Taku River region. Joining this prestigious group from outside the boat's windows were the island's "charismatic megafauna" -- humpback whales and brown bears (the former in abundance).

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the amazing chicken that my friend RD (or as I know him, Michael) makes. It's perfect roasted chicken with rice. What I love about cooking is learning a technique for and adding new flavors to make something entirely different. Don't get me wrong, I make RD's Must Have Chicken at least every other week, but what if I could make it every week, but with a different flavor pallet?
