Riders enjoy new skate ramps at Baranof Park
It had been half a year since Elrik Hanson had picked up a skateboard. He got reacquainted with his board in a big way Monday afternoon. Hanson and a few of his buddies spent three hours testing the new ramps at Baranof Park. After several successful tricks, and some not so successful, they walked away satisfied. “I’m glad there is a mini-ramp section, because I can’t really mess with the big stuff,” Hanson said. ...

Teeing Off: Catching the March Madness fever
I don’t consider myself a connoisseur of college hoops. But when it comes to the opening weekend of March Madness, I am all in. It is the best four days in sports. Heartbreak. Upsets. Buzzer-beaters. Cinderellas. The NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament has it all. And, I can’t get enough.

Who knew the pooch could only fit so many bacons into his 10-pound frame? Certainly not me — I’ve seen how he inhales his dinner, and it isn’t pretty. Being induced into a food coma was well worth it, as Gizmo joined the madness that is the NCAA Divi...
