Talk of the Town

The community of Unalaska is a busy place to live.  Our community calendar is full of events and activities.  Talk of the Town is your source for coverage of community events and sports.  KUCB staff writes many of the stories, but we also accept contributions from community members for this section of our website.  Talk of the Town stories are often used on Flash! Unalaska, our weekly television show.  If you'd like to submit a story to Talk of the Town, contact Chrissy.

Despite the chilly 25-degree temperature, twenty-nine brave athletes ventured out to Front Beach on Sunday, February 19th for the 2017 Polar Bear Run.

Runners gathered promptly at 1:30pm on Front Beach Road, mostly forgoing traditional race warm-ups to stay warm indoors or in cars. 

Runners, trotters and walkers took off down Front Beach Road for about 1.6 miles before turning around at landfill to complete the 5K race. Waiting at the finish line were friendly faces from the PCR alongside our favorite Polar Bear mascot, Clarence.

Last weekend, the Dimond Boys’ JV and the Lumen Christi Lady Archangels played the Unalaska Raiders here at home for homecoming week. The games started Friday night with the Raider boys’ game against Dimond. The game was back and forth from the beginning and in the end, the game came down to the final buzzer. With seconds left, sophomore guard Trevor Wilson hit a clutch three to send the game into overtime. The Raiders ultimately won in overtime with a score of 52-45.
