Today we’re picking up after our dogs. Yes, today’s topic is dog poop. Not the most glamorous subject, but one that inspires a lot of angst that Cherie Northon hears about all the time.
Northon is the Executive Director of the Anchorage Waterways Council.
The annual statewide competitions are coming up soon, as well as the international Arctic Winter Games in Fairbanks. These games are spectacular, like the high kick, and sometimes require toughness and courage. Their cultural roots are for preparing for outdoor survival and hunting success. We’ll have athletes and cultural experts in the studio.

Today we’re looking back at the 40 plus years of the iconic Anchorage bar Chilkoot Charlie’s.

Reyne Athanas runs the Yupiit Piciryarait Cultural Center, which is home to a successful Saturday Market modeled after those found in major cities around the country.
She is also a working artist.
Parents of three Anchorage Olympians join us in the studio. Some of them are headed to Sochi, where the winter games start Friday, so we pre-recorded the show. We’ve heard from athletes, but as a parent it is easier to identify more with the parents: with their pride, and trepidation, and with knowledge of the sacrifices made for a young person to succeed at the highest level. We’ll learn how parents produce an Olympian, and how it feels, good and bad, once you have one in the family.
KSKA: Thursday 2/6 at 2:00 and 9:00 pm
