Arnold powers through complete game
Needing 63 pitches to get through three innings against the Alaska Wild, it appeared Jakob Arnold was headed for an early exit. Not so.

The Wild, based out of Fairbanks, won the second game of the doubleheader, 15-0, in five innings. But Arnol...

Don’t give up on versatile, tasty turnips
My husband Marty’s a good sport. He’s my guinea pig when it comes to trying new foods. One day, I sliced up a new variety of turnip. Rather than sauté it in butter and serve it with salt and pepper, I decided to give it the naked taste test.

Which is, admittedly, part of my confusion, too: opponents to the ordinance disagree with this language, but it has already be...
