What is your favorite joke?

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 10/01/2014 - 4:15am
"I once saw a man with a peach for a head. So I went up to him and said, 'Hey, you have a peach for a head!' He said, 'Funny story. A genie recently granted me three wishes. So for my first wish, I wished to be the richest man in the world, and then a man showed up and gave me millions of dollars and now I'm a millionaire! Then I wished to be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and now I'm married to Jennifer Lawrence! And for my third wish, I wished to have a peach for a head.'"

Alaska Science Forum: Why was interior Alaska green during the last ice age?

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 10/01/2014 - 4:09am
During our planet's most recent cold period, a slab of ice smothered Manhattan. Canada looked like Antarctica but with no protruding mountains. When the last glacial maximum peaked about 20,000 years ago, most of the continent - from the Arctic Ocean to the Missouri River - slept under a blanket of white.

Meals with Midgi: Dipping into a goodbye party

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 10/01/2014 - 4:08am
I don't like long goodbyes. I'm a rip-the-Bandaid-off-and-deal-with-the-pain kind of girl. I prefer to just get it over with. Despit that, I avoid some goodbyes like the plague. They seem so final and so complete. In the past two years, I've said goodbye to my daughter Alex, who married and moved to Nebraska. My daughter Sami, who was easily accessible while living in Salt Lake City, moved to North Dakota. I might mention that my ungrateful children did this on the same day. I'm still in recovery from the loss.

School District Report on Investigation into Hazing

Juneau School District Announcements - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:35pm

The Juneau School District has concluded our investigation into allegations that on or about May 30-31 of this year a group of incoming senior boys hazed/initiated a group of incoming freshmen boys by paddling them multiple times.

These events were first brought to our attention in early June. At that time the district began an initial investigation, which, due to an active police investigation and summer vacation, was put on hold. When we were informed that the police had concluded their investigation we resumed our efforts.
