The 40th annual Alaska Folk Festival is underway in Juneau. Tonight, Folk Fest veteran Jack Fontanella plays with Collette Costa in “Costa’s Second Line Jamboree” at 8pm at Centennial Hall.
I recently caught up with him for ideas on how to enjoy the festival the most.
- Roughly 16,000 pounds of chum spilled onto Egan Drive Monday afternoon. Declared unsafe for consumption, the fish have been destroyed.
- Juneau residents met Sunday to discuss race relations and ways to prevent racial violence.
- The state's Palmer Correctional Facility is slated to close. It's a money-saving measure called for by Gov. Bill Walker.
- Metlakatla Democratic National Convention delegate Gavin Hudson campaigned for Bernie Sanders. But he's in Hillary Clinton's camp now.
