The best part is, there’s another tournament after this one.
Chugiak and Eagle River will face off against each other tonight in the Cook Inlet Conference hockey tournament finals for the first time after winning semifinal games against a pair of South Anchorage schools Thursday night.

On Jan. 27 at around 7 a.m., someone reported a padlock securing a building under construction had been cut. The complaintant couldn’t tell if anything had been taken, police said. The case is under investigation.
That cry echoed over and over through the Alaska Airlines Center Saturday afternoon, a signal to teams of some of the state’s smartest teens that it was time for battle.

The Anchorage Police Department is making an effort to be more visible in Chugiak-Eagle River.
“You should be seeing more officers,” said Nora Morse, a special assistant to Mayor Ethan Berkowitz last week.
Morse spoke at a meeting of the Chugiak Community Council, where she presented the results of a recent community policing survey. According to Morse, the survey showed residents want more patrol during late night hours, want the same officers assigned to the area as much as possible and want to see increased traffic patrols in residential areas.
