Allen Lerner of Environmental and Earth Sciences 14 of  Los Alamos National Laboratory will be the featured speaker. His talk is titled, “The Eruption Dynamics of the 7.7 ka Driftwood Pumice-fall Eruption from Makushin Volcano, Unalaska Island, Alaska.”
    Lerner will present his undergraduate thesis work, which sent him to the distant island.

  • Asset number 18 in the series is youth programs, and when it comes to this area, we do it well.
    The past two weekends, our students were out in force at a variety of community activities ranging from school and sports to service for others.
    Local Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts took to their cars, trucks and shopping carts to assist local postal carriers in filling the shelves of one community pantry, as we approach the halfway point to the holiday season.
    The younger set put on their uniforms and smiles to secure donations at Smith’s Food and Drugstore, while the older scouts collected donations from around the community, sorting and getting them stored for future distribution.
