RepJonathanKreissTomkinsRep. Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins (D-Sitka) is an avid cyclist and runner, and he skippers a skiff more frequently than he drives a car.

So what happened when Rep. Kreiss-Tomkins received his special legislative license plate after he arrived in Juneau for his first legislative session in 2013? He mounted the license plate on his bike, which he uses to get around Juneau when the legislature is in session from January through April.

The photo above was included in Rep. Kreiss-Tomkins’ constituent e-newsletter on Wednesday, Jan. 8, with the following comment:

Winter means two things: snow and the legislative session. I’m also a firm believer this is the best possible use of legislative vanity license plates.

By the way, Rep. Kreiss-Tomkins built a covered bike shelter for his Eagle Scout service project that is located at the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) S’áxt’ Hít Mount Edgecumbe Hospital.

Two Pacific High School students, Jake Kranz (white t-shirt) and Scott Thomas, have been spending a lot of their time recently at the University of Alaska Southeast Sitka Campus. The two students are working with UAS Sitka Campus construction technology assistant professor Pat Hughes to build a new bike shelter for their high school. Pacific High School is Sitka’s alternative high school, and this year the old building was demolished so a new building could be raised. Jake and Scott hope to have their new bike shelter ready for when the new high school building is finished. They designed the shelter to match the architecture of the new high school. They are earning high school credit for their work. Here are some photos of the work in progress.

Two construction classes at University of Alaska Southeast-Sitka Campus  — CT 120 Basic Construction and CT 201 Cold Climate Construction — constructed a covered bike shelter for Center for Community this summer that will be placed in front of its building. The classes met five days a week from May 21 to June 29. CT 120 met for three hours in the mornings and CT 201 met for three hours in the afternoons. The class was funded through a grant from the Southeast Alaska Career Center that was part of “Energize! Sitka” job training program. Pictured from left to right are Terrence Thomson, Donnie Hill, Pat Hughes (Assistant Professor of Construction Technology at UAS-Sitka Campus) and Robert Hughes.
