In movies, therapists encourage their patients to release their emotions. You know, talk things out. I've never been to a therapist, but I have released a lot through writing columns. I probably talk or mention Dad more than anything next to fishing.

Sealaska Heritage will sponsor 10 free formline design workshops in 10 communities in June, beginning with a June 4-5 workshop in Haines, led by Wayne Price. The workshops, offered through SHI's Jineit Art Academy, are designed to help artists at all levels to learn and enhance their formline, a term that describes the complex designs that are the underlying components of Northwest Coast art. Another goal is to increase the number of Native artists and art instructors qualified to teach Northwest Coast art in public schools.

Juneau residents gathered to share their memories and impressions of Tlingit civil rights activist and lawyer William Paul Sr. last week on what would have been Paul's 130th birthday, May 7, one week before the May 15 dedication of the Walter Soboleff Building's archives facility in his name. The meeting, organized by local lawyer and researcher Kathy Ruddy for the second year in a row, welcomed input from about a dozen participants, some of whom knew Paul personally, with a larger goal of bringing recognition to Paul's contributions to Alaska history.

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.
