Earlier this year Sitka had a tarot card reader in residence -- he read over seventy people’s cards in a downtown coffee shop. The Tarot, it turns out, is mystical -- but not magic. Like professional therapy, it's really about looking into a mirror, as KCAW’s resident tarot skeptic, Robert Woolsey, discovered.
This week marked the changing of the guard at a downtown Sitka institution. After eighteen years, the Backdoor Café is in new hands. And the owners say the new Backdoor will be the same as the old Backdoor -- only better.
