Case of the missing fuchsias
“The annual game of hide-the-hanging-fuchsia-boxes is underway this week,” began a story in the April 27, 1972 edition of the Chugiak-Eagle River Star.
According to the story, 12 matching planters that had been hanging from the Eagle River Shopping Center had disappeared. The incident was similar, the story noted, to one the previous spring. That time, one planter turned up later after someone found it in the trash.
Glenn Briggs, representing the center, said he was asking anyone with information about the missing plants to call him as soon as possible.
New CHS addition planned
A new addition to Chugiak Junior-Senior High was being planned. According to a front-page story, the addition would house students in grades 10-12, minimizing interaction between older and younger students. The planned $3.7 million addition would also give the public access to the swimming pool and gymnasium without entering the classroom area.
Construction was scheduled to be completed in 1973.
What a bargain!
Kar King Motors in Anchorage was advertising a “weekend special” on the back page of the Star. Among the bargains: a 1968 Mustang for $995, a 1965 VW Bug for $795 and a 1962 VW Sunroof for just $395.
