NEWS For the Capital City Weekly Classes begin with an exchange of greetings and a brief discussion of topics important to the students: basketball, favorite videos, future plans, hunting practices, perhaps an update on recent fish caught. Students in the small community of Hydaburg on Prince of Wales Island enjoy the informal banter and value the empathy shown by teacher Earl Jeffrey who likes to start class by catching up on his student's interests, listening carefully and developing a personal connection with each student, many of whom have special needs.
