After months of extra training, Sitka Mountain Rescue passed the remaining portions of their re-accreditation test this weekend. This means they are once again a fully accredited mountain rescue team and can continue their work.
The Sitka Assembly has found a way to balance the budget, finding an additional $300,000 dollars for Sitka schools through a series of cuts and transfers. The surplus could save some teaching positions, but it will be up to the Sitka School Board to decide at their April 17th meeting.
If you pledged at the $100 level during our Spring Pledge Drive, come to the station to get your mug. If you have not yet made a contribution, consider doing so now. We must raise just $6,000 more to meet our goal.
