Welcome to Right Moves! Every day in the Last Frontier Alaskans are finding new positions, moving up the ranks at their current employer, or pursuing professional development through ongoing education and certifications. We’re pleased to share all of this positive career movement whenever we can, so here you’ll find Alaska-based job hires, promotions, and professional certifications.
And since people are the foundation of every business, in HR Matters we’ve asked local experts to offer their guidance on human resource trends, issues, and best practices, as well as listing articles from around the state about what businesses—and their employees—are doing to keep the focus on the people.

The Marx Bros. Café
Jack Amon and Richard “Van” Hale opened the doors of the Marx Bros. Café on October 18, 1979; however, the two had already been partners in cuisine for some time, having created the Wednesday Night Gourmet Wine Tasting Society and Volleyball Team Which Now Meets on Sunday, a weekly evening of food and wine. It was actually the end of the weekly event that spurred the name of the restaurant: hours after its final service, Amon and Hale were hauling equipment and furnishings out of their old location and to their now-iconic building on Third Street, all while managing arguments about equipment ownership, a visit from the police, and quite a bit of wine. “If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘A Night at the Opera” starring the Marx Brothers, that’s what it was like,” Hale explains.
