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.

Tenakee Springs - A few of us were standing around the coffee machine in the store the other day. The conversation had rambled along from the recent sale of a building lot in the center of town to the re-building of the old Snyder Mercantile, a project that has provided steady work for several guys and one woman for over a year now. That lead to the mention that the summer people would soon be returning and that the general level of activity around town would lurch up soon as tourists begin to wander through.
