Forty seven students took part in Sochi local Armenian literary language competition.

Sochi is very multi-cultural city. People of over 100 different nationalities live in Sochi, with largest minority group being Armenians. According to census of year 2000, 17% of 420 000 Sochi residents are of Armenian nationality, and according to Russian migration agencies this number is a much higher considering large number of illegal immigrants. So, it is no surprise that almost 1500 school students in Sochi are studying Armenian language.

I should mention that real (literary) Armenian language is quite different from the language local Armenians speak. Armenians in Sochi lived for generations, and even many adults in local Armenian families don’t know literary Armenian language.

Other large national groups in Sochi include Russians, Ukrainians, Greeks, and Georgians.

    first, I would like to say, we are still fishing for salmon here on the Rogue River-I have been a fishing guide here in Gold Beach for 23 years and have never seen the sea lion problem as bad as it was before we started doing something about it. With the implementation of the hazing program we are at lest able to land the fish that are hooked. Before we implemented the program the sea lions took 70% of the fish hooked by sport fishermen —Thanks Curry Sportfishing
