Story
Tagline
I write for a living. What else is there to say?
Introduction
I am a reporter and calendar editor for Alaska Dispatch in Anchorage. I write everything from coverage on the arts, to sports and crime. I became a Dispatcher in the fall of 2013 after about two years in television news. Got a hot tip, question or concern? Tweet me @Megtedge or email me at megan@alaskadispatch.com
Bragging rights
I am slowly becoming the dog lady. I can toss pizza dough and I am the youngest whiper-snapper at Alaska Dispatch.

Neal is always a pleasure to interview. This story was different than most though. Its as much a history lesson as it is an economics lesson. He said the first 50 years worth of data was hard to come by and not very number heavy, which is an adjustment for an economist.

Three Galena black bear cubs finally have a home. The triplets, orphaned during the first weeks of September, will be sent to a wildlife sanctuary in Colorado, said the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

Thank you for understanding, and doing such a great job of informing people of the consequences of feeding wild orphaned bears.  We're thrilled to be able to help, and hopeful that people will have learned the important aspect of them being an exception to the rule.

While humans in the Last Frontier put the studs on their cars and indulge in fall activities, park rangers at Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve say porcupines there are keeping busy in their own way.

Curious about those dead jellyfish washing up on Alaska shores? 
Kenai Peninsula residents may have seen hundreds of dead sea nettle jellyfish in recent weeks, but dead jellyfish are just a part of life, as every fall in Alaska, their short existence comes to an end.

UPDATE: In the spring I sat down with a Girdwood glass blower. He told us then he "pays the bills" by making pipes, which are commonly used to smoke weed. Last week, we caught up again. Now that Alaskans have voted to legalize marijuana he said he is making moves to expand his business.

The Amur tigers at the Alaska Zoo may be the most exotic creatures in the state. And their keeper is a just a quirky man who loves his job and is fighting for a cause, hoping to save a species.

A $6.5 million upgrade to Bethel's small-boat harbor has already made a drastic improvement in the facility, but more money is still needed to complete the project, officials say.
