JUNEAU - Aiming to reduce childhood obesity, the state health department plans to study the policies of Alaska schools for physical education and recess, an official said Thursday.
...afternoon closed a portion of the Richardson Highway at the Mile 95 marker near Willow Lake, said Terry Smith, manager of the state emergency coordination center. Crews were clearing the road.
''The results may not have been glowing, but we learned so much from the study,'' said Linda Borghols, who manages the Healthy Families program for the state Department of Health and Social Services. ''We were able to look at it and say, where do we need to go from here.''
