Just as an internal clock tells a salmon the time is now to head to their home habitat, turning the calendar to July sparks the necessity to fish.
Lifelong Alaskan Frank Mullen passed away earlier this week. Frank personified what it means to be a caring and engaged citizen in our democracy - he was thoughtful, tireless, unafraid, smart and committed to the place he loved. Thanks, Frank. We miss you already.
