Power was out briefly in Sitka this afternoon (Wed 9-21-11) after high wind gusts knocked down a pair of power lines on Lake Street, across from the Westmark Sitka, but no other major damage was reported. There was an upside: The heavy rains boosted reservoir levels two- to three-feet.
This year’s race for three Sitka Assembly seats includes just three names on the ballot, but also two people who are hoping voters will PUT them on the ballot. Phyllis Hackett and Gary Paxton are running as write-in candidates. Printed on the ballot will be the names of Pete Esquiro, Mike Reif and Andrew Traugutt. Paxton was out of town Tuesday, but the other four took listener questions during an on-air forum at Raven Radio.
