Wednesday is Bike to School Day!


Timeline Photos
Tomorrow is national Bike to School Day. Drivers, be aware there may be more than the usual amount of school children darting around as they scoot to school and home. Parents, please make sure your little bikers wear a helmet and are highly visible by wearing bright clothing. Plan your route ahead of time and go for a path that limits street crossings and high traffic areas. For more tips on making sure your child is a safe bicyclist, go to http://www.walkbiketoschool.org/sites/default/files/Parents_Bike_Safety_Tips.pdf

KHNS News was off last week to attend the annual Alaska Press Club Conference in Anchorage. Three days of great training and seminars, topped off with an awards dinner honoring the best Alaska journalism of 2013. We were proud to be recognized with a third place for breaking news coverage of the tender Neptune sinking in the Haines harbor and second place, behind Alaska News Nightly, for best daily radio news program. And a shout-out to The Skagway News Co. and Chilkat Valley News for being honored in several categories of print awards! Now, back to work...

A befuddling site at Picture Point near Haines this evening, especially if you know that it's borough property slated for a National Scenic Byways wayside eventually. But read "Sloof Lirpa" backwards and you'll understand how the sign came to be. No word on if the the borough has yet gotten the "joke" or who the pranksters are.
