Must Read Alaska  August 21, 2017

GOOD MORNING FROM SOMEWHERE IN ALASKA … It’s Aug. 21, 2017 … Last week we spent the week unwrapping the Alice Rogoff / Alaska Dispatch News bankruptcy proceedings and those stories are on the web site … We’ll be in court following it this week as Northrim Bank tries to control the crash landing, the Binkley Company steps up to keep it alive, and a trail of legal detritus stretches from here to the East Coast … Separately, the GCI eviction hearing for the Dispatch is this morning at Nesbitt Courthouse … The Alaska State Fair opens Wednesday … The low temperature yesterday in Nome was 32° and tied the record low for the day, previously set in 1980 … But first…

Mid August Friday Frenzy | Little House Big Alaska

My kids are back in school and I am alternately MISSING them and loving the time I’ve set aside for work each day. Also you know how I love a good schedule and routine, so I am loving life right now. Lists made, routines followed, things ticked off. But here’s the big drawback right now, there’s fresh snow on the mountains! And it was chilly this morning, like 40˚, that’s September and Pumpkin Spice Latte weather! Regardless the Friday Frenzy is here so you can link up your best recipes and crafts for the internet to see-sometimes the best things

Commentary

With Alaska’s largest newspaper today bankrupt and frightfully close to the verge of disappearing forever from the scene, there are a lot of people lining up to bash owner and publisher Alice Rogoff.

For some of them, those emotions are understandable. Mark Miller of M&M Wiring has every reason to want to burn the Alaska Dispatch News to the ground. Miller has been screwed out of almost $500,000 by the news company and to any small businessman that is a fortune.

It hurts not just Miller. It devastates the small crew that works not only for him, but with him. Miller is not one of those bosses who sits in an office or arrives at the work site to order people around. He’s a guy who buckles on a workbelt and puts in a day with the crew.

I admit to a lot more respect for the Miller’s of the world than for the Rogoffs of the world, but one cannot dismiss Rogoff as simply some rich lady from the East Coast trying to rip off Alaska because she most definitely was not that.

Rich lady’s from the East Coast don’t roll out their sleeping bag on the floor of someone’s unfinished, unheated, under-construction home in rural Alaska and say, “thank you very much for letting me have a place to sleep.”

The Rogoff picture is a complicated one, and the job of journalists is to stand back, put aside their emotions, and look at the realities of complicated pictures.

A Taste of Alaska: Tired

A Taste of Alaska: Tired

Now, keep in mind this all happened in the span of 6 weeks, it was kind of a whirlwind. Someone will tell me I am a cancer survivor but it doesn’t feel that way because it all happened to fast that I never fully grasped that I had cancer, and now it is gone and I don’t have any further treatments, it doesn’t seem real. Don’t get me wrong, I have been a hot mess the last 3 months (feel very sorry for my dear husband) and facing the mirror with one breast removed has been harder than I can even put into words, but today I stand here a healthy, cancer free, slightly lopsided woman. YAHOO!
