Editorial: Basinger sails home
August 10, 2023
This week the Pilot bids a
bittersweet farewell to our top-notch full-time news reporter Chris Basinger.
We wish him well as he leaves on Sunday’s ferry, headed for his old Texas stomping grounds.
Sometimes uprooting to Alaska, leaving one’s community of friends and family on the far side of the continent, just ain’t meant to last. We get it.
We hope he thinks fondly of us when he isn’t too busy savoring a bucket of chick-fil-a with his dad and brother, cheering for their favorite teams in
person finally, rather than on facetime too many time zones apart.
Chris, we warmly hope...
