The Great Garbage Patch Disaster

8 hours ago

What comes to mind when you hear the words The Great Pacific Garbage Patch?  Maybe a big dump yard in the middle of nowhere, or littering on the roadsides. When I first heard of this in 2008, I didn't think much of it because I had lived in Colorado where we don't have beaches. The closest thing to a beach that we had was the wave pool at Water World. The Great Pacific garbage patch is a enormous island of complete trash, mostly made up of plastic floating around the oceans of the world leaving behind little fragments of the garbage that got blown off.

The Unalaska City High School Native Youth Olympics (NYO) Team capped off an excellent season by being honored by the City Council during Tuesday’s meeting.

The NYO season started back in March with over 30 high schoolers joining the team. Athletes have a choice of ten different events. Although NYO is an individual sport in many ways, passing your skills down to younger or less experienced NYO athletes and helping your teammates is very important.

On Wednesday, city councilors unanimously approved the financial plan, which allows the local government to spend about about $500,000 more than it did this year.
