Chick Priest: Safe after rough slide into new home base
It is 10:28 a.m. as I write this, and I have been up since 5:10 a.m., having slept in the Anchorage airport on my way back to Fairbanks from Harrisburg since yesterday. I am ready to be settled, but that won’t happen for a long time. I discover when I go to baggage claim that I forgot to tell the people in Harrisburg that I was going all the way through to Fairbanks, even though my Delta ticket was only to Anchora...

He has released several singles, such as “ID,” “Here For You” and “Stay.” Kygo’s first studio album, “Cloud Nine,” was released on May 13. I like Kygo’s music because it is very unique. I love the sound effects and the beat is great. I like to listen to his music quietly. Tune in to...

Himelbloom turning fast laps after fixing iron levels
Thanks to a keen coaching eye, Kodiak’s Arielle Himelbloom has exploded onto the running scene. A year ago, as a sophomore, Himelbloom was struggling. She trained hard but wasn’t getting the results. It was like her feet were stuck in cement. “I would pump my arms really fast and I couldn’t go any faster — it was just one speed,” the junior said. Marcus Dunbar, Kodiak’s longtime track and cross country coach, noti...

Most of us, including me, don’t really want to think about our middle school or junior high years. Of all the times in my life I would like to revisit, my middle school years rank dead last. It was an important time. But this “middle” phase is not only an important time in a young person’s d...
