The Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation's final summer run, the Bobby Johnson Summer Bay Classic Half Marathon wrapped up on Monday in Unalaska. The virtual race was held over the span of a month and participants were asked to submit times and tracking data virtually in order to observe local and statewide COVID-19 health mandates.

The race was split into two categories: runners and cyclists, and also included a 5K fun run—for which results were not tracked.

An Unalaska man was killed in an avalanche Tuesday evening while he was snowmachining in the Unalaska Valley.

Trey Henning, 21, was buried in the avalanche and later recovered from the site near the quarry on Overland Drive. In a statement, the Department of Public Safety said life-saving measures were unsuccessful.

With grant money drying up, the state wants Unalaska to help fund the salmon weir at McLees Lake.

Scientists have used the weir to monitor sockeye for the past 17 years. But now, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has no way to pay for it.
