Two re-elected to Huna board
Albert Dick and Ernest Jack were re-elected to the board of the Huna Totem Corp., at the recent annual meeting of the Native corporation for the village of Hoonah.
Ronald Williams also won a seat on the nine-member board, replacing Karl H. Greenewald Jr., according to Huna Totem Chief Financial Officer Samuel J. Furuness.
Dick, Jack and Williams had been unopposed heading into the meeting, but nominations were made from the floor for Mary Rudolph, William Mills and Frank O. Williams Jr., Furuness said.
Larger dock opens in Skagway
On May 23, Celebrity Cruise Line's Mercury was the first vessel to tie up at a newly extended dock in Skagway.
The $3 million project added 350 feet to the dock, allowing it to handle ships of up to 1,000 feet in length, according to Gary Danielson, vice president for the White Pass & Yukon Route railroad, which operates Skagway's three cruise ship docks.
``With new ships being built longer instead of wider, giving them the capability of transiting the Panama Canal, we had to stay ahead of the curve with new facilities in order for Skagway to retain its place as one of Alaska's premier cruise destinations,'' Danielson said.
Work began in November. South Coast of Ketchikan built the dock under the supervision of Peratrovich, Nottingham & Drage of Seattle.
Technology internships available
Summer internships in information technology companies are available through the Alaska High-Tech Business Council.
The council hopes to match 10 or more interns with employers, with stipends of $500 to $1,000 to supplement wages.
The program is part of an effort to address a shortage of information technology professionals. Alaska is estimated to be short as many as 500 positions.
