Going into his third Iditarod sled dog race, Golva native Kelly Maixner can be considered a veteran. He and his team ran the southern route in his rookie outing, finishing in 30th place, about the middle of the pack.
As the Arctic Ocean’s ice cover declines in summer and oil companies move in with ships, drilling equipment and seismic surveys, what used to be a mostly very quiet home for whales and other marine animals is getting a lot louder.
In what has been described as “an evil hoax,” the town of Bethel, Alaska, has learned it is not getting a Taco Bell. Not now. Not ever. “I repeat: Bethel is not getting a Taco Bell,” the local radio station, KYUK, broadcast this week in an attempt to dash the greased-up expectations — not to mention dozens of phone calls — sparked by the fake fliers posted around town promising gorditas in time for July 4th.

The Berg brothers, the Starkweather, N.D., natives who are bicycling from Alaska to Argentina to raise money for Habitat for Humanity, are traveling somewhere near the Colombia-Ecuador border this week. They’re in a bit of a rush, as they try to complete their 16,000-mile trek by May, in time to fly home for the high school homecoming of their sister, Marta.
