While the Kuskokwim ice around Bethel is decaying, the ice in the middle part of the river is more stable, according to Mark Leary, Director of Development and Operations for the Native Village of Napaimute.

The late Paul John of Toksook Bay is remembered as one of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta’s most respected leaders. Last week, the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation honored his legacy and his decades of service as a board member by dedicating its new hospital expansion to the late elder. KYUK was at the dedication ceremony, along with more than one hundred people, writing on a piece of drywall.

 

“Best wishes," Jennifer Uruvak Stevens of St. Mary’s wrote on the panel.

“God bless,” scribbled Michael Jimmy of Chuloonawick.
