The Sitka School District is hosting a celebration of Phillipine culture this Saturday, March 7, from 11am to 1pm at Keet Gooshi Heen. Kari Sagel spoke with KCAW's Erin Fulton about this family-friendly event.
A Sitka family is rebuilding in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, which tore through the Philippines in early November. Sitka mailman Felix Cirera traveled back to his hometown of Tacloban this week to find out what is left of the beach-side home that he and his wife, Myrna, had built in the city and planned to retire to. Several of the Cireras' relatives rode out the storm in the house.
