Seward Highway Project
Safety issues being a concern, where is the project to herd sheep and goat watchers on the highway? One person see’s an animal, they stop and a domino effect happens. Vehicles stop, people walk across the road not paying any attention to traffic.
It is surprising that there are not more accidents during those conditions.
I just hope I’m not the unlucky driver who hits a vehicle or person.

Heading into her 3rd Olympics, Alaska trapshooter has big cheering section — the Chicago Bears
Corey Cogdell-Unrein, Alaska’s Olympic medal-winning trapshooter, boasts an exceeding large cheering section as she heads into her third Summer Olympics.
Led by Mitch Unrein, a 6-foot-4, 306-pound defensive lineman, the Chicago Bears will be rooting for Cogdell-Unrein when she competes on Sunday.
Corey and Mitch, both 29, married in the summer of 2014. Mitch is in training camp with the Bears right now, so he can’t go to Brazil. But the team has Sunday off, and Mitch has organized a viewing party at the team complex in Bourbonnais, Illinois, according to the Chicago Tribune.
In collision at Wasilla Airport, two planes tried to land at the same time
One, a Cessna 210, was operated by a student pilot with a certified flight instructor on board, according to Mike Hodges, an aviation accident investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board. It wasn’t immediately clear where the Cessna had originated from, Hodges said.
The other aircraft was a converted turboprop de Havilland Beaver registered to former Alaska Attorney General Charlie Cole of Fairbanks. A friend of the family said Cole was not flying the plane and not involved in its operation.
The Beaver’s door was marked with the logo of Fly Denali, a Denali Park-based flightseeing and climbing support carrier. People near the plane declined to comment Friday as did a staff member at the air carrier’s office.
