Historic USCG Cutter being decommissioned

JUNEAU - The 67-year-old Cutter Acushnet, the Coast Guard's "Queen of the Fleet", will be decommissioned during a ceremony at Base Support Unit Ketchikan today at 2 p.m. The Acushnet served as a medium-endurance cutter in the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, and Arctic Ocean. Primary missions included search and rescue, homeland security, maritime law enforcement, and environmental protection. The cutter's motto, "Juvate, Servate, Confirmate," means "Help, Save, Strengthen." The Acushnet was crowned "Queen of the Fleet" after the decommissioning ceremony of the Coast Guard Cutter Storis on Feb. 8, 2007. The title representing the oldest Coast Guard cutter in service will be passed to the Cutter Smilax, a 100-foot inland construction tender commissioned in 1944 and based in Ft. Macon, N.C.

Author Orlean to 'Tell the Truth' in Anchorage

Nationally acclaimed author and frequent New Yorker contributor Susan Orlean will join Alaska journalist Julia O'Malley for an onstage conversation, "To Tell the Truth," in Anchorage on April 1. How does one capture the extraordinary within the ordinary? Which places make the best stories? In what sense are all stories journeys? O'Malley will moderate the discussion with reference to Orlean's books "The Orchid Thief," "The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup," and "My Kind of Place: Travel Stories from a Woman Who's Been Everywhere." A question and answer session and book-signing will follow. The event, presented by the 49 Alaska Writing Center, will begin at 7 p.m. at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Auditorium. There is no charge for 49 Writers and museum members; a $5 donation is suggested for non-members.

Juneau (disambiguation)

I'll admit it - I don't spend all my working hours working. To be fair, the work I do isn't particularly taxing, physically or mentally. For example, one recent project entailed chain-watching "Armageddon," "Deep Impact," "The Core," "2012" and "The Day After Tomorrow." This past fall, another client paid me to play Farmville. I once spent a whole week vetting digital recordings of various bodily functions.

Lecture on early photography

Jim Simard, Head of the Alaska State Library Historical Collections, and Ron Klein, photographer and historian, will present "Wet Plates in Cold Climates: Alaska's Oldest Old Photograph - and Why" on March 2 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Alaska State Museum in Juneau as part of the Wednesday noon lecture series. There is no charge for admission to this lecture. Simard and Klein are on a search for the oldest photo taken in Alaska as part of their work in creating a new exhibit on early Alaskan photography. Using historical research techniques and an acute knowledge of early photographic processes, they are combing through numerous public and private collections to find the most interesting and earliest photographs of Alaska. The exhibit, which will run through the summer, is tentatively titled, "The First 25 Years of Alaskan Photography," and will be composed primarily of photographs and artifacts from the collections of the Alaska State Library, Archives and Museums. The exhibit will feature images by masters of "wet plate" photography who made significant contributions to the fascinating story of photography in the Alaskan frontier.
