Open Mic Night
When 400 Bering Strait School District employees are stuck sleeping in the school, sharing 2 showers and 3 phones for 4 days, what do you do to keep them from going insane? Keep 'em busy, busy, busy. I've been running from event to event and have hardly had time to eat. Tonight was open mic night in the gym. I couldn't believe the great musical talent that's floating around the Seward Peninsula. John was one of the first to get up and perform. Of course I thought he did a great job. Turns out John's a natural performer. He started by playing a Finnish folk song and ended up playing quite a bit of classic rock with Terri, Chick and the band, "The Love Puppets".
