Unalaskans are still looking for Willy Robinson, an island resident who went missing last week while fishing in Captains Bay.

While police called off their two-day search last Thursday and described the likelihood of finding Robinson alive as "very, very slim," his family and friends are hoping to recover his body.

After a decade of deep budget deficits, Unalaska's clinic is back in the black.

"We closed the fiscal year to the positive — to $26,407," said Director James Kaech of Iliuliuk Family and Health Services. "That's huge when we were projecting a loss of more than $700,000."

Kaech said that turnaround is the result of a year spent revamping the clinic's financial strategy and rebuilding the community's confidence in local health care.

Unalaska and Sand Point residents will soon have the option of receiving substance abuse treatment from home.

People from the Aleutian Islands have always had to leave the region for recovery. But starting Aug. 1, they'll have another choice.

"The idea is that folks can stay in the community, gain or maintain employment, and learn the skills of recovery right where they’d be using them," said Dr. Keri Boyd.

In a recent grant application, the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association (APIA) laid out the facts: There were 89 assaults in the region in 2014.

There were also 102 domestic disturbances and three sexual assaults, according to the nonprofit's data. 

Those numbers may pale in comparison to other parts of the state, but Dr. Tara Ford said regional crime can have a profound ripple effect.
