Summer is the busy season for marine research in the waters of Western Alaska, and that means plenty of ship traffic through the Port of Nome. One such ship is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration vessel Fairweather, which recently made a third stop in Nome during a mission to map the ocean floor.
The complaint, filed in the Superior Court for the State of Alaska, alleges that Barbara Amarok, Edna Baker and Charles Fagerstrom violated their fiduciary duties of loyalty and care by distributing an anonymous mailer that “misinformed Sitnasuak shareholders and damaged the corporation.”
Clouds and rain obscured Nome’s view Monday of the “Great American Eclipse,” but Western Alaskans can take heart: another total solar eclipse is coming in 2033, and this time, Nome will be at the center of it all. Call it the “Great Bering Strait Eclipse.”
