HawkeyeHermanHere is a concert you don’t want to miss, an evening of the Blues with Michael “Hawkeye” Herman.  He is performing in Seldovia this Saturday evening, March 1st at 7:30 pm at SBE School. He will be here in Seldovia as part of “Blues in the Schools” which is sponsored by Jack and Debbie Oudiz, Ocean Shores Seaside Lodging, Boss Hoggz, the Charlotte Martin Foundation, Conoco Phillips, Rasmuson Foundation , the Alaska State Council on the Arts, the Homer Council on the Arts, and  the Seldovia Arts Council. Tickets are $5 at the door. There is free admission for youth (ages 18 and under).

We are also excited to announce that Hawkeye will be presenting workshops at SBE School with our students on both Monday and Tuesday, March 2nd and 3rd !

With over 40 years of performing experience, Michael “Hawkeye” Herman exemplifies the range of possibilities in acoustic blues, and personifies versatile musicianship, originality, and compelling artistry as a blues storyteller. His dynamic performances have won him a faithful following, and he leads a very active touring schedule of performances at festivals, concerts, school programs, and workshops.

Hawkeye performs a wide variety of traditional blues, ballads, swing, and original tunes, on six-string and twelve-string guitar, and is an adept and exciting practitioner of slide guitar and slide mandolin. His music has been included in video documentaries and in three hit theatrical productions, and his solo CD, Blues Alive!, released in 1998, was greeted by rave reviews and greatly increased the demand for his live performances at major blues and folk festivals. His newest CD, It’s All Blues To Me!, was released in May of 2005.

Hope to see you there!

Made in Alaska WorkshopWhat a great opportunity for Seldovians!  A free workshop for business owners and marketers will be hosted in the Seldovia Conference Center at the ATC Building.  This is a fantastic chance to get great insight into marketing and promoting your business or service from those who know!
I had a chance to visit with Bill Webb about the program and the services his consulting firm will be providing at this upcoming event!
Gazette: Tell me more about your company and your mission?  How are you funded so that you can travel and support independent entrepreneurs throughout the state?

SBE Future PrincipalThis will be the third time we have hosted the KPBSD for Principal/Teacher interviews in the last year.  Our current principal/teacher, Judy Standafer has given her notice, and will be leaving Seldovia at the end of the 2013-2014 school year.  So, we are on the lookout for a new principal for our beloved Susan B English school!

Since our family moved to Seldovia twelve years ago, we have seen 6 principals in our school!  We realize that Seldovia has always been a small school and the testing ground or beginning stop for some.  Our hope as parents has been to find the individual who wants to make Seldovia their home, our community and our students a long-term part of their life!  It is a trick, as most experienced administrators are “moving up” in the career, to bigger schools, larger staff, etc.

To me, I see this as an opportunity that is exceptional!

We have a beautiful school facility and a parent population that is very involved and interested in what is happening at the school.   The physical environment for Continue Reading
