Above the Arctic circle, about nine of the 12 mushers running the Kobuk 440 sled dog race are now at the 4th check point in Ambler. Kotzebue resident Liz Moore is the official timekeeper for the Kobuk 440. Moore says from Ambler the mushers will next head to Shungnak which she says is an especially important stop this year.
