25 YEARS AGO


Sept. 23, 1988 — A deliberately set fire caused about $100,000 damage to the new Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall at 1247 Old Steese Highway early today, forcing church members to search for a temporary meeting spot.


“The inside will need to be totally refinished,” said Alex Twogood, an elder with the church. “We’ll make plans to take care of that and go back to operation in that building on that same spot. Meanwhile, we’ll continue our activity at another location.”


Hundreds of volunteers from in and outside Alaska did most of the construction on the building in four days this summer. Some people picketed the construction site at the time, protesting that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are a cult.
