You'd be hard-pressed to find a Southeast Alaskan that doesn't love salmon, or a salmon that doesn't need clean water.

Banjos, guitars, mandolins, voices: the 41st annual Alaska Folk Festival starts Monday, April 6, and for the next week there won't be many in Juneau who spend a day without tapping their feet or just getting up and dancing - or, of course, performing.

Festival season is upon us in Southeast Alaska. This weekend, Skagwegians will welcome hundreds to their community for the Buckwheat Ski Classic, marking winter's end with a distinctive celebration of snow. Next weekend, Ketchikan will celebrate a harbinger of spring - the Rufous hummingbird - with the start of its month-long Alaska Hummingbird Festival. And the week after that, beginning April 6, it's the Alaska Folk Festival in Juneau - the official kick-off to warmer weather for many. From there, a different festival will be taking place somewhere in Southeast nearly every weekend through September. The CCW will be putting out its annual Fun & Festival Guide next month, but to help readers keep track of what's happening on a weekly basis, we've introduced a Southeast Spotlight box on page 2, highlighting a major event or festival in a Southeast community for the coming week. This spotlight will supplement our What's Happening listings on page 3.

The Craig Public Library started out in 1935 in the building it now uses as a shed. Now, in its 80th year, it's a finalist for the nation's most prestigious library award - the National Medal for Museum and Library Service. Should it be one of the winners, it'll get $5,000, and people from the nonprofit organization StoryCorps will come to the library and listen to, share and preserve Craig residents' stories.

This is the 50th year Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) have come to Alaska to do behind-the-scenes work with nonprofit organizations throughout the state. It's both business as normal and not - new volunteers are arriving to start their positions, but organizers are also digging through the annals of VISTA history as they prepare to celebrate the program's anniversary. Along the way, they're finding historical events largely lost to time - in one of those events, 55 VISTA volunteers were kicked out of the state in 1970 for supporting Native land claims.

For about 25 years, Paul Coffey kept fire-resistant clothing in his pickup truck so he could be the first to arrive at Craig's burning buildings. When he got there, he'd check to make sure no one was trapped. He'd see where the nearest hydrants were. He'd figure out what equipment his fellow firefighters would need. By then, at least one of the fire engines would be en route, and he'd fill them in, over the radio, on what he knew.

Alaska still has its share of naysayers who will quibble about the seafood industry’s importance to our great state. They dismiss the fact that fishing was Alaska’s first industry and was fish that spawned the push to statehood.
