The United States Supreme Court was scheduled to hear a high profile climate lawsuit yesterday, but last week--Juliana vs. the United States--was put on hold.

The Sitka School Board on Wednesday (4-4-18) held an additional public hearing on next year’s budget -- and this time testimony focused on Pacific High School. The district is counting on the city -- and ultimately the public -- to step up and support critical programs and staffing.
