The University of Alaska Fairbanks celebrated the completion of the campus’s $245 million power plant back in August, in anticipation the facility would be online by the end of the year. But UAF officials say a structural problem that was repaired last month and a faulty electrical component discovered last weekend will keep the plant from going online until spring.


The upcoming PBS Kids TV show “Molly of Denali” features an Athabascan girl as the lead character for the first time on a national program. It is being produced by WGBH in Boston and Atomic Cartoons in Vancouver, Canada. But a big contribution of talent is coming from Fairbanks and Alaska’s Interior. Six Alaska Native scriptwriters are getting ready for the show’s release this summer.

Two expected favorites in this year’s Yukon Quest, Brent Sass and Matt Hall, finished in second and third place in the Copper Basin 300 sled dog race that ended this Monday in Glennallen. As Lex Treinen reports, the two former Yukon Quest champions are coming at the Quest from very different places.

Alaska Native tribes receive health services through the Interior Department, which is one of the areas of the Federal Government that is shut down. Local Native health services are continuing, even if workers are not being paid.

Women's March Saturday

Jan 16, 2019

  

The third annual Women’s March is this Saturday in Fairbanks. Organizers are trying to be more inclusive in their planning, and have changed the focus of this event a little this year. Traditional women’s issues like equal pay and childcare are always on the agenda, but this year organizers want to narrow the focus to local issues.

The march begins at 11 a.m. Saturday at Ryan Middle School, with a route up and down Lathrop Street.
