Joe Malatesta III always wanted to grow his hair into a mullet, but the timing wasn’t right. But about four years ago he decided it was time and the Kenai resident let his inner mullet fly. How high? Well the State of Alaska employee just made the Top 25 in the 2022 USA Mullet Championships, coming in a respectable 19th place. The husband and father of two mullet-wearing boys says what started out as just a bit of fad for his head has turned into a bit of a lifestyle — and a lot of fun for the family. So what drives a man to the mullet — or better yet, does the mullet call to the man? Joe explains his transformation into the mullet world and why he decided to enter the prestigious pompadour retro hair contest.

Melissa Hickman and her husband are remodeling their house in Fairbanks. They were ripping down some old paneling when they discovered some youthful signatures and names on the wall behind the paneling. The name “Katie Ladner ’79,” was written in cursive with a cute little flower along with the names “Chris” (with the ‘S’ missing) and “Mike G.” Melissa put a picture of the names and flower up on the Facebook page, Fairbanks, Alaska, to see if by chance she could find out who the people were 44 years later. And in less than an hour, social media did its thing and Katie was located living in Kingston, Washington. The two have since spoken and made a connection and the home on Birch Hill for Melissa and her family now has a bit of history and a face to go with what was just a name on the wall from long ago.
