A Sitka farewell
USGC Air Station Sitka pilot Brooks Crawford and his wife Caitlin say a very special Sitka Farewell, with Jess Gibson on KCAW’s Good Day Radio show on Tuesday morning (7-16-13). Friendships formed in the Coast Guard have to endure long absences, as typical postings for career officers last only three years. Gibson asked the Crawfords to share their favorite music, and some of their experiences during their Sitka tour. The show was filmed by a camera crew from the television hit Coast Guard Alaska.
On October 7th, the citizens of Sitka will have the opportunity to exercise their democratic rights by selecting a new mayor. There are two choices on the ballot this year; the incumbent Mayor Mim McConnell, and myself, Orion Hughes-Knowles. I am extremely excited to be involved in this election, especially against such a worthy opponent. more
