Colorado soul band to headline this week’s music in the park By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Where last week was all about rock ’n’ roll, this week’s concert in the park will feature a whole lot of soul. The Levitt AMP Soldotna Music Series — which has hosted a free concert at Soldotna Creek Park every Wednesday since the start of summer — will have its ninth concert headlined by Colorado-based soul band The Burroughs. The Burroughs are a nine-person soul group that formed in 2013 and, according to their website, play music that is “steeped in classical soul standards and outfitted with modern flair.” Front man Johnny Burroughs is a licensed minister and music pastor

The declaration cleared the way for the Justice Department to award more than $10 million to fight crime in rural Alaska communities. That includes the award announced Tuesday. Julie Kitka, president of the Alaska Federation of Natives, praised the emergency declaration and the funding. She said her group has been talking with Justice Department officials, as well as Department of Interior representatives, to look for possible solutions. “The attention to what needs to happen as far as women, the children, men that are living in all our rural communities has to be a priority,” she said. “And we really appreciate the Department of Justice’s attention to that.” During Barr’s visit, tribal representatives told him communities with no police presence often must wait long stretches before state troopers can arrive to investigate crimes. Often, it can take troopers hours to reach a village given the sheer vastness of the nation’s largest

who uses his church experience to lift spirits and energize the audience with his onstage performance. Burroughs’ backing band is comprised of a four-piece horn section and a fourpiece rhythm section, and their live performances are known for including “soaring solos, funky grooves and choreographed dancing.” The Burroughs’ latest full-length studio album, “Got to Feel” was released in January of 2018. Opening for the Burroughs is a newly formed local band, The Caper, who will be making their Soldotna Music Series debut. Prior to the bands hitting the stage at 6 p.m., there will be a lawn activity sponsored by Peninsula Pumping, in which kids will have

Victims of domestic violence and sexual assault have limited services available in the larger rural hub communities, or none at all in the villages, participants said.

the opportunity to make their own maracas. In addition, at 5:30 p.m., incoming Soldotna Rotary president Lara McGinnis will be publicly unveiling three new murals that are on display at Soldotna Creek Park. These murals were made by art students at Kenai Peninsula College studying under Professor Cam Choy. The pieces are the result of a collaboration between the city of Soldotna, KPC, the Kenai River Rotary Club and the Soldotna Rotary Club. For more information about the event, including a map showing which nearby businesses allow parking, visit the Levitt AMP Soldotna Music Series Facebook Page.

State authorities handle criminal investigations in more than 200 Alaska Native villages. A 2013 federal report found that at least 75 Alaska Native communities had no law enforcement presence. Tribal leaders have spoken candidly about barriers that victims face in seeking justice, saying some sexual assault victims must take boats or planes to urban areas to get medical

forensic exams. Barr’s visit and funding came as Congress and advocates have renewed a focus on violence against Native American and Alaska Native women. Federal statistics show they are victims of violence at astonishing rates. The most recent numbers show that more than half have faced sexual and domestic violence at some point in their lives.
