Nov. 21, 2002 — To rebuild or to renovate?

That question, asked on behalf of the idled Healy Clean Coal Project, will likely rest in the hands of a new Alaska Industrial and Export Authority board appointed by Gov. Elect Frank Murkowski.

The current board thinks the multi-million dollar plant can run with minor adjustments, a sharp disagreement with Golden Valley Electric Association officials who believe the only solution is complete remodel.


Nov. 21, 1987 — The Gold Kings are truly becoming Alaska’s hockey team.

In addition to having a slew of players who have come up through the Fairbanks amateur hockey system, the Gold Kings “Anchorage Connection” of Mike Cusack, Kory Wright and Georg Thiel have already endeared themselves to the Fairbanks fans with their skating, stick-handling and scoring abilities.


Nov. 21, 1962 — Fidel Castro, who has always professed to be so afraid of imperialism, now finds himself jumping through all the Soviet hoops.

He can’t even sell a sack of sugar, buy a sack of potatoes or possess what he calls an old, slow, antiquated airplane if it doesn’t suit the constantly shifting currents of Soviet policy.

He’s hooked.


Nov. 21, 1937 — Remodeled and enlarged, the Northern Commercial Co. machine shop at Third and Turner is equipped to do heavy forging, machine work, steel fabricating, electric and acetylene welding, black-smithing, boiler work, auto and tractor repairs.

“During the mining season the shop offers 24-hour service,” according to Joe Kozloski, shop foreman.
