Just last night, Nome was spotlighted on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. They focused on Airport Pizza, our little hometown pizza place that actually makes pizza runs by planes to villages that are serviced by small plane runs.
The interesting thing is that one of my students works for the place. She said they actually had people call them from all over the nation, seeing if they could order a pizza. Colorado and Ohio called and asked if they could deliver.
"Do you deliver to Colorado Springs?"
"Ummm, no, just to rural Alaska."
"I saw you guys on the evening news! Did you see it?"
"Ummm, no, it's only 3:00 here."
Isn't that hilarious?
