I was inspired to do some deep cleaning in my supply closet and stumbled upon stashes of leather and leatherworking tools from the late 1990s I’d guess. This deduction is due to finding Seward’s own Kris Peck’s name stamped into one of the scraps. I decided to put this fine resource to use although I had literally no experience with leather tooling. A few Youtube tutorials and a visit to Tandy Leather in Anchorage later, we were in business. Students began with keychains to get the basic idea, and then moved onto a bigger project: wallets, holsters, belts, purses, dog […]

Seward is so lucky to have the ASLC willing and able to respond to wildlife in distress. On Sunday, the ASCL Stranding Team scooped up an injured Tundra Swan from a local wetland stream. Far behind the rest of its migrating flock and alone, it was underweight, listless, and bedraggled. Dried blood stained its forehead and right side, possibly from an eagle attack. The chances that this beautiful swan could survive in such cold, wet weather were slim. Upon arrival at the ASLC, Dr. Pam Tuomi evaluated the swan and gave it antibiotics. Fortunately, the hungry swan responded well to […]Read more ›

The recent DOT repair job on the airport runway apparently survived the ravages of the flood with minimal damage. Yesterday, on a squally, gray Sunday morning, the orange state plow thoroughly cleared the ice, snow, and slush off the long runway, making sure it was safe for air traffic. Good thing too! Shortly after noon, an Alaska Regional Hospital LifeFlight arrived from Anchorage, banked over the bay and made its approach, landing successfully. While it waited on the apron to medevac the stabilized patient(s) from Providence Seward Medical Care Center, a second medevac flight from Guardian Flight landed. It’s been a […]Read more ›
