During two days of public meetings in early August, Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott committed to having tribal and public voices contribute to ongoing state-level discussion about transboundary mines - British Columbian mines in watersheds that begin in B.C. and flow into Alaska. He also told Alaskans concerned about the mines' potential pollution - among them fishermen, elected representatives and Alaska Native leaders - that he is listening to their concerns, but that the involvement of the International Joint Commission under the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909, which many of those concerned say is the best course of action, would only come with a unified voice.

More than a half century ago, in Petersburg, Virginia Colp came across a manuscript her deceased father had written. The story described events she'd only heard whispers of - a futile search for gold that led to madness, encounters with monsters, and the disappearance of men. Virginia had it published under the title "The Strangest Story Ever Told;" now, it's likely the best known scary story in Southeast Alaska.

In March of 2014, I emailed Paul McCarthy, one of two educational coordinators at Lemon Creek Correctional Center (the other being Kris Weixelman, known to most as "Wax"), to offer a writing class for inmates. Responding enthusiastically, Paul arranged for me to spend a morning introducing inmates to the basics of writing well.

Even without the guitar, microphone and considerable stage presence, Archie Cavanaugh is impossible to miss during a recent lunch hour rush at the Gold Creek Salmon Bake near Twin Lakes. Dressed in fire-engine red from his hat all the way down to his fancy shoes, Cavanaugh is a dramatic bright spot on a gray day, a visual that coincides with the upbeat music he's chosen to share with his audience. Over an '80s-era jazz-funk bass beat, Cavanaugh sings lyrics he wrote decades ago on a song called "Foolin'":

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 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.
