ANCHORAGE — David Hall got an unexpected call a week ago Tuesday, just after 9 p.m. On the line: the Presidential Inauguration Committee. Would he be willing to be a co-chair for the inaugural celebration? Citizen co-chairs are people whose stories help illustrate the president’s first-term accomplishments. The president wanted him there because of Hall’s efforts to overturn Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
The president. Wow. Hall said yes. Less than a week later he found himself in the Oval Office, sitting across from President Barack Obama.
KODIAK — David Anderson never played on Joe Floyd Track and Field’s new artificial turf, but the former Kodiak football player has left his mark on the multimillion-dollar field.
Anderson, a 2012 Kodiak High School graduate, is the artist behind the bear logo that covers the middle of the field. When he designed the logo during his senior year, he didn’t realize it would end up on Kodiak’s new playing surface.
“It was a complete and utter surprise to me,” Anderson said. “I am honored. How often do you get to make something that everybody will see and enjoy?”
KENAI — Kevin Byers’ only day off is Sunday.

Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday he spends on the farm.
Byers grew up on a farm in Wisconsin tending cows. He is a farmer, he said; he has been nearly his entire life.
