State authorities have charged a fisherman with first-degree felony assault after he allegedly stabbed another crewman on the F/V Aleutian Sable and fled the crime scene.   

In the indictment, police said Anthony M. Cervantes, 27, got into an argument with Elisha M. Singell while they were drinking on the boat on March 16.

This year, 10 nonprofits are seeking financial support from the City of Unalaska to the tune of almost $1.3 million.

The City Council heard requests Tuesday from organizations including Iliuliuk Family and Health Services, the Museum of the Aleutians, and the Qawalangin Tribe.
