"Are there any clams down here?" asks Gov. Murkowski while breaking ground with Brig. Gen. Craig N. Christensen, left, and University of Alaska President Mark Hamilton during a ceremony Saturday at the site of the future Alaska Army National Guard Readiness Center and the UAS Student Recreation Center near the Auke Lake campus. Construction of the 53,000-square-foot facility will begin soon and should be complete by July 2005. The projected cost is $15.4 million. UAS is responsible for $5.47 million for the project, with the remainder to be funded by the Army National Guard.
