The Mendenhall Glacier seems to be retreating at a pretty fast rate. As a child growing up in Juneau in the late 1980-90s, we hiked the East Glacier Trail, and had a magnificent view of the Mendenhall from above Nugget Falls. Here we are in 2015, and from the same spot you can just see a tiny bit of ice from the same viewpoint. It really got me thinking, what else is there to see on the East Glacier Trail? Over the last two years I left the trail and went about exploring the area with my friends from "Juneau's Hidden History" (a Facebook hiking group).
The Juneau School District has concluded our investigation into allegations that on or about May 30-31 of this year a group of incoming senior boys hazed/initiated a group of incoming freshmen boys by paddling them multiple times.
These events were first brought to our attention in early June. At that time the district began an initial investigation, which, due to an active police investigation and summer vacation, was put on hold. When we were informed that the police had concluded their investigation we resumed our efforts.
