Gloria Simeon: owner of Yup’ik Way

Yup’ik Way of Bethel donated both of this afternoon’s “Hot” prizes.

The first is a jar of ‘Caiggluk Minguk'; used to soothe and treat dry or irritated skin, cuts, scratches, eczema, and many elders have reported that it helps with arthritis and other aches and pains.

The second prize is a jar of ‘Ikiituq Minguk'; used to relieve the pain and swelling associated with joint sprains & twists, and ikiitug also relieves lower-back and other deep muscle aches. This balm also works great for healing bruises and burns.

Thursday’s ‘Hot Drawing’ was one of the more popular thus far, probably due to the fact that a half-cord of wood was being given away.

Mary Sattler of Bethel won the firewood in Friday’s drawing, and was thankful to hear her name called as she was just about to head out the door to cut pallets as the announcement was made on KYUK.

Ana Hoffman of Bethel won the 10lb bag of organic produce donated by Meyer’s Farm.

KYUK was so enthused with the participation in Friday’s ‘Hot Drawing’ that it decided to include a ball cap- donated by Calista Corporation- in the drawing that was won by Betsy Taguchi.
