GCI says it won't move forward with bringing broadband communications to Unalaska at this time unless they receive a large grant from the USDA.

The company has put in an application for a $25 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service (RUS) to bring fiber optic broadband connection to communities along the Aleutian Island chain, where connectivity and bandwidth can often be unreliable or difficult to come by.

It's been just over a month since the F/V Scandies Rose sunk west of Kodiak.  

Two fishermen were rescued wearing gumby survival suits in a life raft. The other five crew members — as well as their 130-foot crab boat — were never found.
