Cran'bear'y the polar bear is very popular at the Alaska Zoo! Just ask anybody!

The Alaska Zoo in Anchorage has a new temporary visitor; an orphaned male polar bear, and although he doesn’t have a name and the public can’t see him yet, he’s drawing attention to what might happen when the young cub is released from quarantine. When he was rescued, he was seen eating an arctic fox, which are known to have rabies. So, I visited the zoo to talk to zookeeper Sam Levin about the new addition, and the current edition, 20 year-old polar bear Cran’bear'y. But, like a lot of my stories, the focus turned from the amazing creatures in front of me to the two-legged variety standing beside me, in awe of what they were seeing — polar bears and people at the Alaskan Zoo… they never disappoint. So, we meet Reggie and his two daughters Lonnie and Aleigha. It was a ‘bear’y good interview.

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.
