What you need to know about Seward Highway crashes, closures and delays this summer

The most recent, on Sunday afternoon, involved two trucks, an SUV and a boat trailer at a narrow and treacherous spot at Mile 109, just south of McHugh Creek. The two-lane highway was fully or partially closed for some seven hours total, according to the Anchorage Police Department’s traffic investigation unit — just as thousands of people were returning from the Girdwood Forest Fair and other weekend activities.

Father reminisces about last he had heard from daughter

The last time Rodney Roberson saw his daughter Bianca was on Sunday, June 25, when they went bowling together.

“She would twirl the ball up in the air and she knocked down a couple of the pins,” Roberson recalled in a phone interview with the Tribune Thursday. “She couldn’t really bowl but she beat me. We had fun that day, too. That Sunday we had a lot of fun.”

Friday, he and his family will lay 18-year-old Bianca to rest, following funeral services at St. Paul’s Baptist Church, 1 Hagerty Blvd., in West Chester, beginning at 11 a.m.

“She was a spoiled brat, but that was my baby though,” Roberson reflected. “We were looking forward to her succeeding and doing the things she wanted to do as far as her career.”

Bianca Nikol Roberson was shot in the head Wednesday, June 28 while driving her 2009 Green Chevrolet Malibu after a road rage incident

CampHERO teaches young girls about protective services, builds confidence

From July 19 through 26, nearly 200 girls ranging from kindergarten to recent high school graduates will be learning about fingerprinting, cutting apart cars and propelling from buildings at CampHERO.

Partnering with Girl Scouts of Wisconsin-Badgerland, CampHERO allows young girls to learn what it is like to work in protective services, which are career paths girls are not normally encouraged to pursue. It spans a week and immerses the campers in hands-on activities.



Nationally, only 31.2 percent of EMTs, 12.4 percent of police officers and 3.6 percent of firefighters are women, according to the camp’s website. CampHERO is working to fix this gender gap. 

“The world’s population is 51 percent women, and we need to have statistics that reflect our population. People can do this job, they just don’t

Pittsburg middle-schoolers learn about crime scene investigations

PITTSBURG — All they had at their disposal was a crime scene, a witness and a suspect. It took creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking for 18 Rancho Medanos Junior High students to solve the mystery surrounding a mock homicide scenario.

Rancho Medanos history teacher Sergio Verbis is a former Brentwood police sergeant who wanted to give his History Club students a CSI experience they will never forget. So he recently took them to the Pittsburg Police Department for this project-based learning challenge.

The students were divided into groups and asked to collect evidence from three “stations” — a mannequin victim with bullet holes, a witness and a suspect who was told not to respond to them … but who had a gun concealed in her waistband. Led by crime scene experts at the police station, the students used video cameras to document evidence.

According to Verbis, this field trip of investigation was
