The period just before and especially during World War I was one of rapid expansion in the salmon industry. In Southeast Alaska, 36 new operations began between 1915 and 1918. What prompted this increase? Sockeye had been the most desired canned salmon in earlier years. Then the federal government purchased canned pink salmon for the overseas troops, thus opening a new market. Men hastened to join the bonanza.

Many in Southeast Alaska may not remember the Grumman Goose amphibian plane. After World War II, this was the workhorse of air travel to remote Alaska villages. Larger towns in Southeast had no landing fields and relied on airplanes that could land on water. An airfield on Annette Island, built during the war, was changed to civilian use. The Grumman Goose ferried jet passengers to Ketchikan's waterfront. (I didn't forget the PBY amphibian planes that also carried passengers. That's for another time.)

E-readers, online shopping and iPhones may be giving brick-and-mortar bookstores a hard time, but Petersburg's Sing Lee Alley Books and Gifts has taken up the challenge to stay relevant both to locals and to tourists. The store was started by Tina Green and Phoebe Smith in 1981. Current owner Nancy Zaic did massage in a room at the back of the store and started managing it when Green was away. She arrived in Petersburg from Oregon in 1977 when she got a job in a restaurant through the newspaper.

Two years ago, my boyfriend and a bunch of friends went to Little Norway Festival in Petersburg - without me. The stories that emerged were the stuff of legend, full of Vikings. Valkyries, plate upon plate of shrimp, and lots of activities involving the word "skol." There was no way I was missing it this year.
