I used to see this attractive girl staring at me as I ran at the Central Middle School track across the street (12th Avenue & C Street) here in Anchorage. So one day I saw — who I thought — the owner in the yard and she told me that blonde girl watching me out the window was Sadie, a 10 1/2-year-old labradoodle. I call her the “Mona Lisa Doodle.” After about three months, I met Sadie. We hit it off. Turns out she's a runner too! The windows to our worlds are all different. Now I'm not just a human that is a mystery blip on a track. I'm a human that Sadie knows. Sadie and Dave — different views, same curiosity. Have an Allgood news story?

The Clothesline Project and Anchorage Cops for Community have partnered with big sponsors like Kaladi Brothers Coffee, Matson, Walmart and NUVISION Credit Union — to name a few — to offer free and gently used clothes for families and kids in need for the upcoming 2023 school year and for people who just need clothes. On Saturday, Aug. 5, people lined up and happily waited in line to get free coats and boots, and to choose clothes they want and need! There was face painting, a bouncy house, hotdogs, and lots of fun stuff for the kids. It was the ninth year for the Clothesline Project which is all volunteer operated and staffed by Anchorage police, the fire department and lots of other wonderful people in our community. The event highlights two things — the generosity of our community and how cops truly are peace officers, and it is a wake-up call to how many families are hurting financially and how much of a need there is for more of these highly organized events that truly change adult and children’s lives in our community.
