A father and son team, which has been traveling around the world in a helicopter to commemorate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, stopped in Nome last week.
FULL BLAST— The youth division of last weekend’s Fun Run in Unalakleet blasts out of the gates. The run was part of weekend geared towards healthy activities that included the annual Silver Salmon Derby, the Berry Bake-off and a community barbeque.
The 19th annual NAC Community BBQ, Silver Salmon Derby and Berry Bake off kicked off Friday evening at 5 p.m.in Unalakleet.
STYMIED—Larry Pederson (l), chair of the Nome Planning Commission, David Csiki and Greg Smith (r), building inspector, discuss Csiki’s structure, right, under consideration for the controversial City abatement process. Csiki maintains lack of enforcement of laws on George Foot, owner of building next door, hinders work on Csiki’s building. Foot and Smith say it isn’t so. The Council has the last word on demolitions after a step-by-step process.
The Nome Planning Commission found a list of debatably abatable properties in their meeting packets Aug. 1—about 50 structures on a long list from which to nominate a short list of five most needing abatement.
WHO KNEW?— Sen. Lisa Murkowski proved her skills playing Eskimo Yo-Yo during her Tuesday visit at the Katirvik Cultural Center.
The only indication that something unusual was going on at the Foster Building on Tuesday morning was the silver City of Nome car that stood at the roundabout in front of the entrance to the building.
