ANCHORAGE, Alaska — It is the season of darkness.  When I first thought of this piece, on November 1, Anchorage had 8 hours, 27 minutes, and 57 seconds of daylight. That’s a moving target, however, as we’re losing roughly 5.5 minutes a day. Another week has gone by, and we’ve moved an additional 38 minutes to the darkness side of the ledger.  You can do the math on your own, but at some point sunset...


… And the job is right…. It’s a match made in heaven. That’s pretty much how Robin Brooks feels about being the head coach of the Glacier Nordic Team in Whitefish, Montana. Sometimes coincidences just seem to happen at the right time. Brooks was looking for a new home, Whitefish was looking for her.
