Petersburg's Little Norway Festival celebrates Syttende Mai (May 17), the anniversary of the signing of Norway's Constitution in 1814. Now sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, it was first organized by two local women, Bernadine Trones and Alma Wallen, on May 17, 1958, and has taken place every year since. As those who have attended this festival know, this is a major event for Petersburg, and includes a lively parade, a pageant of traditional Norwegian clothing, dancing and live music in the streets, artist booths, activities including a herring toss, and a community fish bake at Sandy Beach. This year's festival runs from May 14-17.

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.

I am a big fan of Theatre in the Rough's productions of Shakespeare, and this new production of "Henry V" does not disappoint. A sometimes brilliant director, Aaron Elmore knows these plays better than anyone else in Juneau and always seems to uncover new facets to Shakespeare's lines. So let me say right off the bat: Go see this play. It's one of Shakespeare's masterpieces, and our Theatre-in-the-Ruffians do a good job of bringing it to life.

A nearly $12 million cut in state funds is on tap for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game if state policy makers have their way. That was one early outcome of legislative House finance subcommittee meetings last week, as they wrapped up the first step in a budget process that will see cuts in agencies and programs almost across the board.

Right after the yearly halibut catch limits are announced each January, brokers usually are busy with buying and selling and transferring shares of the catch. But it's been slow going so far, even with slight harvest increases in nearly all Alaska fishing areas for the first time in nearly a decade. The buyers are there - it's the sellers that are scarce.

The Ketchikan Arts Council's 29th annual Wearable Art Show, World Beat, was held over four shows this past weekend to sold out crowds at the Ted Ferry Civic Center. The event combines aspects of a theatrical performance, fashion show and gallery exhibit, and features one-of-a-kind artworks designed to be worn by the human body. Ketchikan has been hosting the popular event since 1986, one year before the World of Wearable Art Show debuted in New Zealand.
