Waiting for humpies
Sitkan Hugh Bevan captured yet another trailcam portrait of one of Sitka’s local brown bears. This guy was scouting for humpies about 10 miles south of town, at 8:15 in the morning on July 31. Bevan first came across the no-name stream while hunting a few years ago, and noticed fish bones along the banks. He checked this trailcam on August 2, and discovered several other bears had been photographed as well. He’s decided to keep clear of “Scary Creek” until October!
The Sitka Wolves have won the Southeast region 3A basketball tournament. The Wolves decisively beat the Mt. Edgecumbe Braves Saturday afternoon, 62 to 45. The game was a rematch between these same two teams from the previous afternoon. In Friday’s contest, Mt. Edgecumbe trailed Sitka by 14 points going into the fourth quarter, but rallied, tied the game with less than a minute to play, and eventually won by 5. On Saturday, however, Sitka was a different team. more
