Today on Morning Line - Danny and Frank visited with NYO Games Alaska Head Official and 2017 Alaska Sports Hall of Fame Inductee Nicole Johnston. 

The Senior Games are a week away, starting April 27th, the same day as the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. 

Johnston says one of the central focuses of the Games is to pass along encouragement and family spirit that comes with the friendly competitions - which often have many positive effects on participants.  

The official schedule of events has been published, and can be found at the NYO Games Alaska website:

March for Science Palmer AK Facebook Page

Kendra Zamzow is an environmental chemist, and after hearing about the idea of independently organized March for Science events happening across the US, thought, "Why not Palmer?"

This was in mid-February, and since then, organizing the event has been a huge part of her life, outside of work, as she points out this is completely on her own time and resources.  

As Heard on Morning Line: Epipen Recalled

Apr 7, 2017

Earlier this week, the Alaska Native Medical Center sent letters to patients with prescriptions for certain EpiPen and EpiPen Jr Auto-Injector models about a voluntary recall by the manufacturer, Mylan. 

The potentially lifesaving device is designed to allow a patient to inject liquid epinephrine into their own leg to help stop the effects of a severe allergic reaction.
