The male staff at Unalaska City School is once again sporting an inordinate amount of mustaches. It’s that time of year again, and November has been re-dubbed as MO-vember to support and raise awareness for health issues facing men.

Every Wednesday, Channel 8 produces Flash! Unalaska.  The program has been on the air since 1988.  That means that hundreds of people have volunteered to appear on local television.  We are looking for your help preserving the valuable content produced by Channel 8 over the years.   If you value Unalaska's video history, think about donating to our Adopt-a-Tape program.  We have lots of cool premiums that come with a donation, including an I Flashed Unalaska t-shirt.

A Rockin' Good Radio Fundraiser

  We had a rockin' good time at KUCB's annual One Day Radio Pledge Drive on Friday, October 9!  This year's theme was "pirate radio," with our volunteers hijacking the airwaves all day and all night, playing their favorite tunes and taking requests.  Besides the fun at the studio, staff and volunteers were out and about at the Grand Aleutian Hotel, Safeway, and The Norwegian Rat Saloon, taking pledges and photographing members with our very cool life sized pirate (thanks to art teacher Finn and volunteers)!

Raging Waves Welcome Underwater Pumpkin Carving

Oct 27, 2015

The Unalaska Diver's Association held their annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving competition this past Sunday, October 25th. This is the third consecutive year the pumpkin carving has been held by the Non-Profit Dive Association, with several earlier carving events scattered throughout previous years. The weather was ferocious, and the planned dive location of the beach in front of The Norwegian Rat Saloon was under siege by four and five foot breaking waves. While potentially fun, the waves would have led to smashing pumpkins rather than carving pumpkins.
