BACK AT WORK – Mary Miller, center, gets a round of applause Wednesday after speaking at a reception at Sitka National Historical Park where she is again the superintendent. Miller's return to the head position at the park has come after an eight-year legal odyssey. She was superintendent of the park from 2008 to 2010 when she was reassigned to a new position in Anchorage that she rejected and was fired. After filing suit she was reinstated in 2013 and served until 2015 when an appeal filed by the U.S. Park Service reversed the earlier decision and she was again terminated. She filed a new suit and a trial was set for 2019, but Congressman Don Young and Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke stepped in on her behalf and Miller was re-instated.
