May & June 2007
Dolly Angstman’s wedding to David Simeon was a well attended celebration in Talkeetna. Former Bethel Superior Court Judge Dale Curda presided and many area residents past and present attended. The Angstman family thanks all for attending. Another neighborhood wedding is scheduled for the last weekend of June in Aniak as Jacques Longpre weds Roxanne Evan. Most of the ALO staff will attend, many traveling by boat up the Kuskokwim River.
Myron and Sue spent a couple of weeks at the elk farm in Minnesota, and enjoyed the arrival of nine calves. Wildlife was abundant, with numerous turkeys around the farm, which is a first. Myron competed in the Iowa Senior Olympics, winning medals in the football throw and 3 on 3 basketball, but watch the picture page for his painful results in the 50 meter dash, soon to be posted.
In the office, settlements were reached in a number of cases. A Kasigluk woman received $27,500 for injuries suffered when she was thrown from a boat which hit an underwater cable, owned by the local corporation. A former Bethel person settled his claim for $22,500 after cutting his neck in a fall from a dirt bike in a local sand pit while in Bethel on a visit. In that crash, the rider’s helmet broke leaving a jagged edge which caused the cut. Fox Racing was the defendant. The last recent settlement involved a slip and fall at a dance in the village of Emmonak. A student suffered a broken arm, and his parents accepted $75,000 from the Lower Yukon School District to resolve the claim without suit being filed.
