My name is Toby Campbell. Since my husband and I moved to Sitka in 1987, we have composted our fruit and vegetable waste. It has always been astounding to me how much beautiful soil as well as balls of worms come from our compost pile, which we’ve gratefully used in our vegetable and flower beds (and shared these worm balls with our friends)!

Monday, April 28th, was Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Yom HaShoah. About thirty people gathered in Sitka’s Totem Square in a light rain as St. Michael’s Cathedral tolled its bells. Residents paid tribute to the victims of the Holocaust, but also remembered more recent genocides, in Cambodia, Rwanda and Bosnia -- and spoke about the struggle to keep the vow that came out of the ashes of World War II: never again.
