In Honor of National Aviation Day, MsG reads two stories:
“The Day I Sprouted Wings” by J. Herman Banning
“Flying – A Dream Come True!” by Ida M. Tarbell
She explains the stories are “in dedication to all the “flyboys and girls” who taught me the science of aviation and how to love flying.”
- In a statement, Triem wrote she was especially thankful to her "fellow millennials who had faith in me to represent their interests, priorities, and approach to our community, its challenges and sustainable future."
- If you live anywhere in the country with a sales tax, the online retailer Amazon collects it – except in Alaska. Some in Alaska want to see changes that would affect Amazon and other online sellers.
- More than 5,000 people may come to the Fairbanks area over the next four years as part of the move to base two squadrons of F-35 fighters at Eielson Air Force Base. The latest estimate announced Monday is well above the previous estimate of 3,500. The bigger population increase is expected to place a greater burden on local services.
