    Becca Clark, Wrangell Sentinel|Apr 17, 2024

This year is a bit of a lighter year, Matt Henson, who is organizing festival planning, said. They are focusing on community-centered, family-friendly events.

  • Borough steps up and drives a good deal for golf course

    George Kosinski, Wrangell Sentinel|Jan 10, 2024

    The borough and the Alaska Department of Transportation have found an answer to preserve the Wrangell Golf Club’s low-cost use of 33 acres of state land on Ishiyama Drive for the nine-hole Muskeg Meadows course. When the state last year determined it needed to start charging a market-rate land rent to the nonprofit, the borough figured out it could lease the land from the state at no cost – and then sublease it to nonprofit for $1 a month. The borough assembly signed off on the deal Dec. 12. The golf club has operated Muskeg Meadows for more th...

    Larry Persily, Wrangell Sentinel|Sep 6, 2023

    The year’s only high school cross-country meet in town is set for Saturday, Sept. 9, with runners from nine Southeast schools scheduled to travel to Wrangell for the competition. Starting time for the 10-team meet is 1 p.m., said Wrangell coach Mason Villarma. The public is welcome to watch the runners in the 5K race at the Muskeg Meadows Golf Course as long as they pay attention to the flags that direct spectators to stay off the racers route — which is mostly on the golf cart path, Villarma said. The course will be closed to all golfers — d...

The WMC Foundation and SEARHC are offering the women of the community an opportunity to do just that at the Rally for Cancer Care fundraiser at Muskeg Meadows on Aug. 5.

  • Cross country team prepares to run down goals

    Marc Lutz, Wrangell Sentinel|Jul 26, 2023

    This year’s Wrangell High School cross country team has some big running shoes to fill. Last year, the boys team placed first at regionals and first at state, which was a first-ever accomplishment for the team. Some of those runners are returning and head coach Mason Villarma has big hopes for the athletes. “I think the men will definitely look to repeat a state championship,” he said in an interview on Friday, July 21. “I think the women — Southeast looks really weak — so I think they can win a regional championship. Anything can happen at s...

  • Rucking adds weighty challenge to hiking Wrangell's trails

    Marc Lutz, Wrangell Sentinel|Jun 7, 2023

    On a recent Saturday, Devyn Johnson brought her children and their friend to the Rainbow Falls trailhead at 5 Mile. They met with a curious hiker and prepared to trek up the path to the top, about six-tenths of a mile away. Before starting on the journey, Johnson found a large slab of rock weighing between 20 and 30 pounds and put it into her backpack. That’s the difference between hiking and adding a rucking element to it. Every weekend, rain or shine, the Wrangell Parks and Recreation department hosts a rucking hike in various places around t...

    Caroleine James, Wrangell Sentinel|Apr 19, 2023

    Every spring when the eulachon spawn, the Stikine River flats are flooded with thousands of migratory shorebirds.
