Alaskans will receive $1,022 for this year's Permanent Fund dividend; U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski promises she won't back down on the King Cove Road; and Unalaska's municipal election is just eight days away.

Last weekend was busy for the athletes of Unalaska!

Starting on a crisp, clear Saturday morning at 10:15am in Kelty Park, the Raiders invited the community out for the Tustumena Invite. It was the final qualifying race before the State Championships on October 1st.

Coach Gibson began the morning by recognizing the accomplishments of the two seniors on the team this year, Taylor Holman and Anthony Lopez.

Alaska fisheries have escaped the effects of climate change — at least, for now; Governor Bill Walker will soon announce the amount of this year's PFD check; and the Blob is back in the Gulf of Alaska.

Unalaska's clinic has adopted a new po​licy for handling after-ho​urs calls for non-emergency care.

Now, when patients call Iliuliuk Family and Health Services (IFHS) after closing time, they're directed to a phone tria​ge service based in Pennsylvania, which connects them to the clin​ic's on-call provider.

The new service is taking the place of dispatchers from the Department of Public Safety, who have served as the go-between for the last 20 years.
