Wondering how to edit this U.S. City Entry?

Untitled[edit]

The WikiProject U.S. Cities standards might help.

Removal of text[edit]

I removed the following text as it is more appropriated for the state of Alaska as a whole, not for the community of Seward:

for $7,200,000 on March 30, 1867. This translated into approximately 2.5 cents per acre ($6.18/km²) for 586,400 square miles (1,519,000 km²) of territory, three times the size of Texas. The purchase of this frontier land ("Seward's Icebox") was mocked as "Seward's Folly" and Andrew Johnson's "polar bear garden"

Location Map Quality[edit]

Sorry I'm no expert on Wikipedia, but I noticed that the german wikipedia page [[1]] uses a much nicer location map than the english version. Is there a good reason for this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.232.64.175 (talk) 10:30, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

I agree that is a better picture. I'll look into changing it. First I'll have to figure out how one goes about doing that. Crininger (talk) 03:47, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

We've got one like that too, as in Fort Yukon, Alaska. I'll swap it in on this page. Pfly (talk) 04:22, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Per value?[edit]

While I'm looking at this page, does anyone know what is meant by the sentence "Seward is the seventh most lucrative fisheries port in the United States per value."? Pfly (talk) 04:40, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

I've done a bit of looking around and I believe that "per value" mean based on the value of the fish being taken from the port rather than the weight. I found this same sentence copied and pasted on a few other sites and none of them list any credible source or further explanation so i assume that it was taken from this article. I did find a couple of more recent reports on NOAA's web site. The most recent gives the national numbers for 2009 and 2010. In this report Seward is shown to be the port bringing in the ninth most amount of money, $69.2 million, up from $33.1 million in 2009. here is a link to the report: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/mediacenter/docs/2011/sep/fus_sept2011.pdf

I think I'll go a head and edit this section of the article with the current information as well as less confusing wordage. Please let me know if anyone finds further information on the subject. Crininger (talk) 23:23, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
