Graduation day for most of our area’s high school seniors is today. We would like to congratulate all of the seniors at Chugiak, Eagle River, Birchwood Christian and Eagle River Christian High Schools on your achievements, as well as any local seniors graduating for home-school programs or high schools elsewhere in Anchorage. Way to go!
This Sunday is Mother’s Day, one of the few holidays that can unite us all. Regardless of religious beliefs or cultural backgrounds, everyone’s got a mom. And even though we should each thank our mother every day, it’s nice that one day a year is reserved just for her.
For more than four decades, this paper’s sole mission has been to provide the Chugiak-Eagle River community with as much local news and information as possible. And with your help, we’d like to spend the next 40 years doing the same thing.
Well, if you hadn’t noticed all this new daylight, it’s a sure bet the recent Daylight Savings Time clock switch jolted you into a new world of evening sunshine.
Eagle River’s Doug Urquidi isn’t your average politician. The 46-year-old electrician says he’s running for the U.S. House not out of a desire to become a high-powered Washington insider, but because he believes citizen government is what this nation was founded on. And although he’s trying to unseat a well-known Congressman in Don Young, Urquidi believes he’s got a great chance to win in November.
