On Dec. 11, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.
Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.
Anchorage Daily News editorial Internship - Sports
Want to learn the media business from the inside? The Anchorage Daily News is hiring an editorial intern for our sports department. It is paid and will last about 4 months, 20 hours a week, including Friday nights and Saturdays.
In this position you will write about a multitude of sports; prepare results and standings for publication; help keep our calendar of events updated; answer phones; write everything from briefs to features and help with other tasks as needed. If you have a car (and insurance), you will get to cover sports events.
We’re looking for someone with a basic understanding of sports. We don’t care if you know who won the last Super Bowl, but you should know about first downs, RBIs, 3- pointers and power plays. If you know the Mustangs play in Chugiak and the Kardinals come from Kenai (and start with a K), all the better.
You must be able to perform on tight deadlines for both online and print publication, meaning you must be able to write quickly and cleanly. You must be detail oriented, proficient in grammar and spelling, have strong writing skills, be familiar with AP style and abhor the Oxford comma (or at the very least, know not to use it). A desire to learn and improve will take you far.
Applicants should send a letter telling us a little about yourself and how you can help us along with a resume and samples of your news, sports or features writing. Send materials to Beth Bragg, sports editor, email@example.com.
