Wandersee a clutch performer
Kodiak coach Amy Willis has preached the importance of team play this season. That philosophy has worked. The Bears are having their best season in program history. They enter today’s 4A state championships as the Northern Lights Conference champions with a 17-1 record. As much as volleyball is a team game, it’s hard to look past Kodiak’s 6-foot-2 outside hitter, Hannah Wandersee. She was named the NLC player of t...

Old system still viable to catch KTUU
KTUU-TV has vanished from GCI cable boxes, but fans of Anchorage’s NBC affiliate can still watch their nightly news courtesy of a vestige of Alaska’s telecommunications past.

From Soup to Nuts: Thanksgiving means food
Year to year, Thanksgiving Day in our home holds nostalgic value in the comfortable familiarity of the traditions we keep and the foods we eat. When I was a young wife and mother, I had idealistic visions of holiday gatherings and how they should go. Martha Stewart was an idol of mine, and my goal was to make every holiday picture and memory personify Norman Rockwell’s drawings. I think it was about the fifth year...

Alaska Science Forum: Visiting bats and the hot maggots of autumn
After she read a column on Alaska bats, Pat Holloway of Fairbanks sent me a photo of a little brown bat that made it into her house this summer. It surprised her, as bats tend to do when they appear in your home. After she stopped shrieking and ushered the bat out through an open screen, she searched her house the point of entry.
