Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:54am
Monday is Labor Day, the American holiday of the worker. On the first Monday each September since 1894, Americans have celebrated the social and economic achievements of the American worker - things like the eight-hour workday, the minimum wage, the prohibition against child labor and basic workplace safety requirements. Of course, it's also a day off for most workers - we celebrate labor by not working.

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:54am

Doctor Fermento: Heading to the fair for the beer is too much trouble

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:54am
I attended the Alaska State Fair in Palmer this year for the first time in about a quarter of a century. I'm not a big fan of the soiree and stopped attending after the first few of the 35 years I've lived in Alaska. I'm not saying the fair is a bad thing; it's just not for me.

Public Servants - Making a Difference in your Community Every Day of the Year

Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:54am
"CBJ employees are incredible," said City Manager Kim Kiefer. "They work hard day in and day out around the clock to make sure that city services are provided in a way that is reliable, efficient, and in many cases, invisible to our citizens. It is a good thing when people don't stop to think about the quality of their drinking water, the crime rate, or the cleanliness of a community park; that means we are doing a good job." Kiefer, herself a 30+ year veteran of city service, went on to add, "For me, public service has been a rewarding career choice. I believe most of our employees feel that way as well. It is one of the reasons CBJ is a great place to work."

Doctor Fermento: Play your cards right to drink safe

Wed, 08/20/2014 - 5:50am
When's the last time you've been cut off or even thrown out of a bar? Have you ever been denied entrance into an establishment because a bouncer or one of the staff felt that you were too intoxicated to enter? Have you ever been turned down from buying liquor at a grog shop because you were underage? Back in my early drinking days, when I did more firing for effect than drinking good craft beer for the flavor, those events earned me bragging rights.

Fish Factor: Russian import ban hits Alaska salmon

Wed, 08/20/2014 - 5:50am
Seafood is by far Alaska's top export, and as it heads overseas, global politics play a big role in making sales sink or swim. That dynamic took center stage last week when Russia banned imports of foods for one year from the U.S., Canada, Europe, Norway and Australia in retaliation for sanctions imposed due to its aggressive actions in Ukraine.
