Nancy Rudolph lives a very simple life in a trailer park in Anchorage. Due to her health, she doesn’t get out much — but when she does it’s the short trek to the mailbox. One day last year while checking her mailbox she saw a little snowman behind her somebody had made. It just made her day! She's held on to that picture and that moment for over 12 months. Due to her health and all the recent snowfall, laughs and smiles have been a precious commodity for Nancy. So she sent me an email letting me know how much a little snowman made her day and how she was hoping whoever made it last year might do it again. Well, so far no one has come forward to claim they made the little snowman. But we went out to meet her and to find out why that little snowman meant so much to her.
Sharpe plead guilty to manslaughter as part of a plea deal taken last September after his trial had already been set to get underway. Friday, Superior Court Judge Gregory Miller accepted the terms and sentenced Sharpe to 20 years in prison with 10 suspended and five years probation.
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.
