We are looking for proposals that are/do one or more of the following:

·      Provide insight into areas of the Alaska food system

The Alaska Food Conference and Festival is an opportunity for attendees to learn more about — and engage in — the various issues affecting Alaska’s food system. In our fourth semi-annual event, March 8 (Friday), there will be a food systems conference with speakers presenting on a variety of food security, production, business and community issues, with some sessions placing an emphasis on farmers markets. March 9 (Saturday) will be a fun and educational food festival with food demonstrations and DIY workshops. We are looking for proposals for both days.

DRINKING WATER WARNING

DRINKING WATER WARNING
City of Saxman Water System Customers
 

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

The Saxman Water System has experienced multiple line breaks which have resulted in a significant loss of pressure in the drinking water system. As a precautionary measure we are asking customers to boil water before using for consumption. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this problem.

What does this mean? What should I do?

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for three (3) minutes, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Water main breaks resulting in a loss of system pressure can introduce disease-causing organisms into the water system. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites, which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches. The symptoms above are not caused only by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice.

People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice from their health care providers about drinking water.

What is being done?

The City of Saxman Water System is actively seeking and repairing line breaks. Once system pressure is restored, bacteriological tests will be conducted throughout the system. We will inform you when tests show no bacteria and you no longer need to boil your water. Updates will be provided on the Saxman News Facebook page as more information is available.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1982085168521595/
 

For more information, please contact the City of Saxman at 225-4166 or the Saxman Public Safety Office at 228-0903. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
 

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
 

This notice is being sent by The City of Saxman Water System
State Public Water System ID#: 120127.
Date distributed: 10/19/2018. 
 

Instructions:

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for three (3) minutes, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

BEARS WARD CREEK TRAIL
Be aware of bears on the Ward Creek Trail especially near the first Falls over look. Sow and cubs and other bears present in that area all summer long especially now that cohos are making it up the creek. (10/13/2018) Had encounter with my dog a few times this summer and a real close call yesterday. I had to hike through the woods to get back to trail as Sow wouldn't let me pass. She was mad. Sent her cub up a tree. There has been more bear activity this summer than ever before on all my years hiking and running on this trail since it was built. They like feeding at that falls. Keep dogs on leash and hike with a friend. Pepper spray is recommended. Bears present on Ward Lake Trail also. They'll be gone soon hopefully.

Closure

Yakutat District Ranger Lee Benson, under authority delegated by the Federal Subsistence Board, is closing the 2018 Federal subsistence moose season for the portion of Unit 5A west of the Dangerous River, except the Nunatak Bench, effective Friday, Oct. 12, 2018, at 11:59pm. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) will implement a closure for the State season.  

 

The quota for the 2018 moose season in Unit 5A is 30 bulls west of the Dangerous River and 30 bulls east of the Dangerous River. This closure is necessary to ensure that the harvest quota is not exceeded. Hunters are reminded that the remainder of Game Management Unit 5A east of the Dangerous River will remain open for moose hunting through November 15, 2018, or until 30 bulls have been harvested in that area.

Zone Closure

The Sitka District Ranger, under authority delegated by the Federal Subsistence Board, is closing the Bear Mountain Zone to the harvest of mountain goats.

 

The closure will be effective Thursday, August 9, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. and will remain in effect through the rest of the 2018 season, which ends December 31. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) has issued a concurrent closure in the same zone. Further mountain goat harvest in this zone could have a long-term, negative effect on the conservation of this mountain goat subpopulation. The remainder of Baranof Island is open to goat hunting until the season closes, unless closed by special action.   

 

A map and description of closed areas are available from the Sitka Ranger District Office and the Sitka area office of ADF&G. Information on Federal subsistence management special actions for the Tongass National Forest can be found at http://www.fs.usda.gov/news/tongass/news-events. For additional information, call Subsistence Biologist Justin Koller at 907-747-4297 or email him at jpkoller@fs.fed.us.
