Fearless Fairbanks angler Barbara Goreman, 88, caught her very first fish — ever — with Captain Steve’s Fishing Lodge in Ninilchik over the weekend. Goreman was reportedly fishing in 200 feet of water when she landed the bulky behemoth.

HHA selected for award

Homer Hockey Association was one of three hockey associations in the U.S. selected as a recipient of the USA Hockey “Grow the Game Award.”
For the sixth consecutive year, the award recognizes youth hockey associations for their efforts to create new and innovative ways to grow the game of hockey.
Total Hockey awarded Homer 20 sets of starter equipment.
The press release stated that, “As the only nonprofit rink in Alaska, it is essential for HHA to grow participation at the rink every year. In doing so, they have implemented a variety of unique and creative ways to attract more kids to the rink.
Activities are spread out every couple of weeks throughout the season, and include the Zamboni Tour, Dress the Coach, Skate-A-Thon and Family Skate programs.
