We came across Sungha Jung, and his incredible guitar talent, late one night while jumping from You Tube video to You Tube video. The “Bl*ackbird” video was one of the first that he posted several years ago. He’s now a full fledge “superstar” in his native South Korea. Below are two of my favorites, but you can go to his website to learn more. Enjoy!
- The state has asked the new presidential administration for a waiver to pay more than 80 percent of reinsurance costs.
- The state’s only professional sports franchise, the Alaska Aces, will fold after this season. The decision was announced Thursday, Feb. 23.
- Bans on plastic grocery bags have been cropping up across Alaska’s remote communities. Cordova’s ban went into effect last year. But so far, the larger cities in the state have yet to adopt one.
- Things are not looking good for Haines’ Alaska State Trooper post. Trooper Director Col. James Cockrell intends to reassign Haines’ one trooper position to Bethel. The decision isn’t final yet, but the community conversation about how to handle the loss continued at a Public Safety Commission meeting this week.
