Turnagain Times Tidbits

Now that Turnagain Times has passed into the annals of history, it’s appropriate to look back at its 20-year past after its final issue was published on Nov. 3, 2017.
The following excerpt is from Turnagain Times Volume 1, Number 3, published July 2, 1998 on page 1 and written by Ken Osuna. The person quoted is Shine Audett, Chair of the Forest Fair Committee.
Forest Fair Scheduled for July 4th Weekend
While the Forest Fair has changed over the years some of the original rules remain in place. The organizers request that all fair goers abide by four simple rules, “no dogs, no politicians, no religious orders and no beer outside the beer garden.”
“Those are just the original rules,” said Audett. “We want everyone to come down and have a great time.”
She said if everyone in dog friendly Girdwood brought their dog to the fair, the event would be a melee of dog fights and other dog problems. According to Audett, animal control will be watching for unwelcome dogs.
