Easy fresh blueberry cobbler

In cobblers, crisps, blueberries and peaches reign supreme
With the arrival of early, succulent peaches and plump blueberries, the signs of summer continue to develop at the market. The peaches seem to taste exceptionally sweet this year and the blueberries appear especially plump, making them particularly luscious for use in cobblers and crisps.

Photo feature: Where's Mama?
A newborn moose calf, crying for its mother, runs across Main Street Loop in Kenai on Tuesday afternoon. As hard as it may be, Jeff Selinger of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game says to leave apparently orphaned animals alone. Their mothers often find their young ones and it is difficult to find an appropriate home for them once they've been rescued, Selinger said. "The best chance the calves have at survival is getting back with the cow. Even though it may seem harsh to leave the calf by itself, that's its best chance," he said.

Bob Stokes
Longtime Alaska resident Bob Stokes died in Anchorage on Friday, May 30, 2008, surrounded by his family. He was 71.
