Operations are on hold at the City Dock after high winds damaged the only working crane for loading cargo.

Ports director Peggy McLaughlin says the crane was being moved Friday morning to accommodate an incoming Horizon Lines container ship. A gust of wind caught the machinery and slammed the crane against its emergency stops.

"It hit it pretty good and there’s some obvious repair work that needs to be done to that end of the crane where the stops were," McLaughlin says. "There was a little bit of visible damage on the crane."

This past weekend the Lady Raiders Volleyball team traveled to Anchorage and played in the Lumen Christi Dig Pink tournament. There were a total ten teams that participated in this tournament. The Lady Raiders played a total of nine matches. Out of those nine matches, five of them were conference matches, which they had won. The teams at the tournament were all competitors and all the games that the Lady Raiders played had different levels of intensity. The Lady Raider played aggressively against the Birchwood Knights and the Dillingham Wolverine, who were state contenders in the 2013 season. The tournament was extensive, yet competitive and the Lady Raiders were able to fight and win some battles. The team ended up placing fourth out of the ten teams and is currently ranked first in the Borealis Conference with a 5-0 record!
