Seven times is the charm for building some momentum on a measure that aims to give personal use (PU) fisheries a priority over commercial and sport users. As it stands now, the three fisheries all are on equal footing in the eyes and actions of state managers.

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.

Like wood carving and textile weaving, metalsmithing is an artform for which the Tlingit and Haida tribes of Southeast Alaska have long been well known. Beginning with the use of Alaskan copper prior to contact, and continuing with post-contact materials such as silver, Tlingit and Haida craftsman laid the foundation for a tradition that continues to flourish in the work of modern artists.

The wolves of the Alexander Archipelago are mysterious; scientists don’t even agree about whether or not they’re a subspecies of the gray wolf.
