What is local food to you? Several years ago, when asked this question in a college class, I paused. As we went around the classroom sharing our ideas, my mind went blank. Growing concerned, I began ambling through the Alaskan grocery store aisles of my memory: rows of tough-skinned orange tomatoes, heaps of wilting greens, little trays of chancy-looking blueberries well past their prime, white fuzzy wisps streaking up from the undersides of strawberries, stacks and piles of imported fruits and vegetables from afar. I thought of my friend's dad who had grown up in Juneau and wouldn't eat vegetables if they had not been safely quarantined in tin cans. I thought of our emblematic provider, "the barge," and what those poor fruits and veggies had to endure on their long journey north to Alaska.

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.
