Stephen Caulfield is a veteran railroad man who has worked in Skagway for years. He took us on a trip this summer and told us about his long and colorful days as a brakeman with the White Pass and Yukon Route. Better known as "Leprechaun" by his colleagues, Caulfield says he has met visitors from all over the world.

And now it’s time for our weekly trip around the state for 300 villages. This week, we head north to Barrow. More specifically, to hang out with the Barrow Whalers football team.

By Patrick Yack, APRN - Anchorage The highlight of the summer in Skagway is the 4th of July celebration when townsfolk and visitors from all over the world alike take part in the fun.
