The large track and field facility next to the Change Point mega church in Anchorage has opened. This facility started life as a publicly subsidized seafood processing plant that went out of business after a year or two and was empty the entire time we lived in Anchorage. Change Point, a very large non-dominational Christian church bought the facility to give itself a home and then put a very large sports field and track door as well. This was much-needed in ANC; we had only one decent in-door track (Tesoro) and this has more room and better facilities.
Here is a link about the facility from the NY Times if you want more: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/23/business/23megachurch.html
