Happy New Year! Andy Kline was the host and we concentrated on the Arts and the January First Friday on this edition of Juneau Afternoon, including:
Pat Race of Alaska Robotics on their show concentrating on student art inspired by comic books.
Artist Rob Roys and Kimberly Naylor of the City Museum on Rob’s solo exhibit.
And from up on the mountain, we talked to Jeffra Clough and got this week’s Eaglecrest Report, where January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard month.
- Lawmakers who represent areas outside Juneau receive $295 for each day of the special session. Juneau lawmakers receive $221.25 per day.
- Sixteen veterans of the Alaska Territorial Guard will be honored at a discharge ceremony today. Four of them are from Western Alaska.
- The historic houses in Juneau and Douglas were predominately built by miners and fishermen long before today's zoning was put into place. That's prevented homeowners from restoring or rebuilding homes in these neighborhoods without running into conflict with the city's zoning laws -- a temporary fix may be on the way.
- Alaska U.S. Rep. Don Young wants to know why Americans are still fighting in Afghanistan. He has co-sponsored a bill that would end funding for the war in a year, unless the president and Congress affirm the need for it.
