Fried Friday: Summer’s End– Having Trouble Staying Awake?
It’s the end of summer, at least that’s what Labor Day, the Alaska State Fair in Palmer, and school busses on the road everywhere always says to me. Lots of people, you, your students and perhaps your colleagues, may be finding it difficult without triple doses of coffee, to stay awake. Here are some great …

Fried Friday: Smile Just Because You Can
Sitka is certainly fried this week, but not in a lighthearted, fun way. The landslide that occurred Tuesday morning, obliterating an entire home, damaging another, sending a 15 ft high wave of logs, mud and debris down the mountain will not be easy to forget.

And, the entire team appreciates all the valuable feedback that you all gave us as we walked about the building meeting with you individually, and at our “campfire …
Fried Friday: National “Love Your Pet Day!” Really??
Seriously, who knew that today was National Love Your Pet Day. As if we don’t love our pets every single day of the year! In honor of this important day, we’ve unearthed a few pet videos for you (thank you Nicole and Tina). I had to try pretty hard to tie this post to education even very loosely. Faculty …
