Plenty to do this Fourth

From performers to parades, Fourth of July weekend on The Rock will be booming with activities. And the question everybody is asking: Will the weather corporate? Sort of. The National Weather Service is forecasting a sunny Fourth of July with a high of 62 degrees, but the days leading up to the holiday are a different story. Rain and wind — 20 to 25 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph — are forecast for Kodiak on Friday and Saturday, with precipitation giving way to the sun by Sunday evening.

The other letter on this page was written by my husband, John Hansen, who also addressed the envelope. He requested that I add my own letter to explain. John had a stroke in February 2021 while he was at work at Spenard Builders Supply. He was medevaced to Anchorage right away.
