First things first: Franklin Graham, founder of Samaritan’s Purse, will be in Juneau on July 1, noon, to lead a prayer service for Alaska. Join him at 144 Marine Way, across from City Hall. There is much to pray over in Alaska. Graham and his organization have poured a ton of love into villages in Alaska, and were instrumental in the recovery efforts after the 2009 Yukon River flood.

Meanwhile, Brietbart tech editor and conservative-gay provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos (so scandalous that his Twitter account @Nero keeps getting suspended) has arrived in Alaska and may be speaking this week in Anchorage. We’ll update this space as details arise. He’s all about the free speech thing and the Trump phenomenon.

Fourth of July will be on a Monday this year, and some of us will head to Nenana for a slice of history, with the Coghill General Store 100th anniversary. Our suggestion: Join us! This won’t come ’round again.
