Thank you for support during our recent loss

Our daughter Dyann and I would like to thank family and friends for their prayers, visits, phone calls, cards, food, flowers and monetary contributions following our loss of Larry.

We would like to once more than my brother Butch and his wife Andrea Caiente-Laiti and Barbara Cadiente-Nelson for arranging Father Tony's Rite of Anointing of the Sick, Commitment to Life that sent Larry on his peaceful journey.

Central Council Tlingit & Haida Indians of Alaska, the Juneau Tlingit & Haida Indians of the CBJ, the Douglas Indian Association and the many individuals who comforted us was appreciated more than words can say.

Dr. Urata, Dr. Widen and Tamara Collins, thank you for your respectful, caring approach to Larry's care.

We have scheduled Larry's Forty Day dinner for 5 p.m., March 9 at the Alaska Native Brotherhood Hall. We invite you to join us for an evening of sharing a meal and conversation.

Thanks for making race course race worthy

The Kensington Cup was Feb. 23 through 26 at Eaglecrest. It is one of two race series held each year to determine the Junior Olympic teams for the Alaska division.

Last year, the Juneau Ski Club had to move the event to Alyeska Ski Area because of snow conditions. This year we were able to hold the event at Eaglecrest for only one reason; not because snow conditions had reached the quality necessary, but because Kirk Duncan the area manager, Jeff Brown, Jeffra Clough and other staff at Eaglecrest worked for many extra hours and days off to help us prepare the courses.

The race runs were groomed and snow moved from other areas in order to provide the opportunity for 68 racers from Juneau, Anchorage and Fairbanks to compete on the race course. Without their tireless effort, that would not have been possible. From all of us, a heartfelt thank you. We are so lucky to have the right people in the right place.
