Cook’s exploration left lasting impression on Alaska

Anchorage marks a hundred years, a hundred languages

Anchorage’s port of necessity

The drive along the lower Kenai Peninsula affords views few places can offer: snow-capped and active volcanoes rise above blue, fishing boat-dotted water like a defensive line collapsing on a third-string quarterback.

Anchorage & aviation: Flying through time

“Owning a Widgeon, living in Anchorage and flying in Alaska, there’s just nothing left. You just can’t get any better than that,” said George Pappas in his deliberate cadence, with the hint of a grin showing through.

Building Anchorage with a green vision

Anchorage was a dusty little town that essentially ended at 15th street when Vic Fischer arrived in 1950.

Exporting defense powered expansion

“He who holds Alaska will hold the world,” Brigadier General William Mitchell told the House Military Affairs Committee in 1935.

Bear Paw Preview: Highlights and Sneak Peeks

Bear Paw Preview: Highlights and Sneak Peeks

Let’s face it: everything at Bear Paw is awesome. Little girls in tutus dancing to hip-hop on the main stage, while nearby on the park grass Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson military personnel demonstrate how to take down a (pretend) terrorist to enthusiastic onlookers, and delighted kid screams erupt from the carnival: that’s awesome. Kids in ninja outfits doing stunts in town square to hard dance electronica, while families splash through water pouring from a hose atop a firetruck ladder in the street, and the smell of vendor booth food wafts through the air: also awesome. It’s going to be an awesome Bear Paw, and if you want to get the most out of it, dear readers, we at the Star highly encourage you to embrace it.
