The interest comes five months after the city of Fairbanks announced it had sued 3M Company and Tyco Fire Products, companies that made aqueous film-forming foam containing PFAS, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances that are man-made chemicals.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states that “There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse health outcomes in humans.”

Chris Wetland, when he came to North Pole High School for Saturday afternoon’s football game against the Kenai Kardinals, was accompanied by a memory of the last victory for the Patriots football team.

West Valley’s Koen House and North Pole’s Lia Castillo won the respective boys and girls 5-kilometer races Saturday in the Region VI All-Schools Cross Country Running Meet at Chena Lake Recreation Area in North Pole.

“We have a lot of great skill players this year who made a lot of great plays last year and I expect them to do the same this year — on the outside and in the backfield,” Davis said after Monday night’s practice.
