Six teams with some strange names are the champions of Juneau’s 19th Holiday Cup soccer tournament, which ended Saturday.
The youngest players — the Reindeer Rampage – won the elementary school division, the Swaggalicious took the middle school spot, junior and senior winners are the Purple Cobras and Wolf Pack, while the Hot Cocoas and Crunch Enhancers won the adult divisions.
The coed indoor soccer tournament has become a tradition for soccer enthusiasts during Juneau’s holiday school break. KTOO intern Alice Ottoson-McKeen reports.
- Large projects can often be contentious, and two of the most debated state projects in the past few years have been the Knik Arm Crossing and the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project.
- Gov. Bill Walker announced an additional $10 million cut to the University of Alaska.
- The largest share of that cut is to the account the state uses to partially reimburse local governments for school bonds.
- Inmates will be moved to other corrections centers and halfway houses or possibly put on ankle monitoring, depending on the situation.
