Six Chugiak-Eagle River students were among 37 Alaska high school seniors nominated to U.S. service academies on Monday, Jan. 23 by Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
“This year’s nominees are stellar candidates who embody the leadership capabilities and strong characters we expect from our men and women in uniform,” Murkowski said in a press release. “It is a privilege to nominate such accomplished Alaskans for admission to our service academies.”
Chugiak-Eagle River girls hockey player Hannah Blizzard has racked up some impressive offensive numbers since the start of the New Year. Through the first five games of 2012, Blizzard had eight points, including six goals and two assists. She’s a sophomore at Chugiak High and the daughter of Pam and Alan Blizzard of Eagle River.

Freshly cut classic ski tracks glistened in the just-rising sun the morning of Saturday, Jan. 14, practically begging to be raced on. But instead of getting tested by some of the state’s top Nordic skiers, the tracks at the Beach Lake Trails and in the stadium at Chugiak High School were left mostly unmolested thanks to some harsh winter weather.
In place of a recipe this week, the Chugiak-Eagle River Historical Society would like to share the menu that was printed on the Parks’ old Parksville flyer. Thanks to their daughter, “Sparkey” for sending the society a copy:
A big toasted bun full of Matanuska Valley beef, ground and seasoned to PARKS order. Delicious, curly potatoes and dishes of relishes for you to flavor to your own taste. All in a basket to eat here or to eat in your car. Coffee or tea $0.75
Justine and Cloyce Parks staked out the first five-acre, small-tract homesite in the Chugiak-Eagle River area just south of Peters Creek in 1945. They had come from their home in Nebraska before World War II, when Cloyce was offered a one-year assignment with the Corps of Engineers. At that time the couple had two teenage children, daughter Virginia and a son, Jim.
The Anchorage Planning and Zoning commission approved site plans for an Eagle River Fred Meyer store at the north end of Eagle River’s downtown.
Although the commission gave the new store its blessing, it said the Portland-based retailer must reduce the height of its main sign and makes sign changes to the “monstrous façade” on the north face of the building.
Chair Daphne Brown objected to a proposed 40-foot-high sign, saying it was excessive.
My name is Jacqueline Ray of GGHT (God’s Greater Holy Temple) in South Anchorage. I have co-pastored with my husband Bishop Robert Ray for the past 21 years. This year Bishop Ray accepted the call to evangelize our sister churches in West Texas. Therefore, the baton to become the Senior Pastor in Anchorage has been passed on to me. This is a great honor for me.

Anchorage police said they arrested Douglas Caudy, 21, of Eagle River on charges of second-degree attempted sexual assault and third-degree sexual assault earlier this month after he made contact with a sleeping woman. The victim told police Caudy sexually touched her while she slept at the home of a relative on the Old Glenn Highway, police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said. Caudy is a friend of the relative, Parker said. Caudy was lodged at Anchorage Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail and a third-party custodian.
Community service isn’t for everyone, or so some may think. After all, not everyone has the ability to stand in a meal line and serve food, help clean a park, or has the creative ability to paint faces at the Fourth of July celebration. But, I would argue that community service comes in many different packages. Sometimes it is through physical or artistic means, but many individuals have found their service through sitting, listening, and talking.
