The Juneau Photo Group, or “JPG” will be showing photos at two First Friday events on March 7th. Photos will be exhibited at the KTOO studios (all month) and at 228 Seward St.
The JPG is a group of local photo enthusiasts–both professional and amateur–who share a love of photography and sharing this interest with others. The group now has over 1000 members.
We’d love to see you at either or both of our First Friday events!
- 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.
