Since 2008, the Pribilof School District has devoted a week of classes to scientific and environmental issues unfolding in its own region. Reasearchers from across North America visit St. Paul Island to teach students about the world around them.

This year, KUCB's Zoë Sobel and former KDLG reporter Mitch Borden also taught middle and high school students the basics of reporting — and by the end of class, they had written questions and conducted interviews with the visiting presenters.

The Unalaska City Council has certified the results of last week's municipal election, which brought 433 voters to the polls.

"We had a 21.5 percent voter turnout, which was lower than last year by about 10 percent," said City Clerk Marjie Veeder.

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.
