NLC Power Rankings: Setting the record straight
A week ago, I reported an incorrect answer to a trivia question in the Daily Mirror. Turns out Rob Foster scored a Kodiak High School boys basketball record 61 points in a 116-43 win over Homer in Nov. 1971. I reported he scored 63.

Alaska Science Forum: Cook Inlet Basin amplifies earthquake shaking
Millions of people live in dimples on the Earth's surface — often near the ocean, in lowlands between mountain peaks too rugged and cold. One of these global indentations, Cook Inlet Basin, recently showed another characteristic of the planet's basins — they quiver like a bowl of jelly during an earthquake.
