The Chronicle made it to the end of the world in July. Fred Hoene of Portland shows his Chronicle at the North Pole. Fred reports that 90 people from 15 different countries were able to take a trip on the Russian nuclear icebreaker Yamal, which generates up to 750,000 Hp. He said they left from the port of Murmansk which was also the home port of the Russian sub that got caught beneath the ice. Fred grew up in Cottonwood as the son of Gus and Lena Hoene and says he still enjoys reading the Chronicle.
