Coach Silfies ready to continue Wolves’ football tradition

August 31, 2012

Change is in the air for the Kane Wolves’ football program. While there may be new coaches, Wolves’ head coach Todd Silfies does not expect any big changes in style of football. The biggest change is the addition of freshmen to the high school football roster. This means that there will be 55 players on the sideline on game nights, a big jump from previous seasons.
Fourteen ninth-graders are on the team this year. According to Silfies, a number of other AML teams also made the same move.

Chamberlain hopes young soccer team won’t wilt under pressure

August 31, 2012

Youth will be the key word for the 2012 Kane boys’ soccer team.
Head coach Ernie Chamberlain, now in his fifth year at the helm, must replace 10 starters from a team that was one win short of making the playoffs.
Chamberlain has 18 players on his roster, with three being returning letterwinners. Zach Hadfield is the only senior on the team, and will be one of the two captains. Junior Riley Austin will be the other captain of the squad. Chamberlain said that the two have a lot of experience and leadership, and have done a great job motivating their teammates.

Smith, now in his 10th year as coach, has five golfers that earned letters last year returning this season. They are Ryan Greto, Dan Park, Austin Woolcock, Trace Gordon, and Austin Hoag.

Adventures of a wildlife photographer

August 24, 2012

This is part nine of my 2011 Alaskan wilderness photographic adventure. We have traveled from Fairbanks, through Denali National Park, down the Alaskan railroad to Anchorage, stopping briefly for an overnight stop to catch my breath, and then heading southeast towards the village of Seward.  South of Anchorage we stopped in the village of Girdwood. This was to be our one luxury stop of our trip. Our stay for a day and a half would be at the beautiful Aleyska resort. With luxury rooms, indoor pool and access to the chairlifts, the stay was nice reprieve from the fast pace that we were used to.
