EVERYONE'S A WINNER – An enthusiastic Tanner Ystad, age 6, carries a barbecue grill to his mom after choosing it as a prize during the Sitka Sportsman's Association's 64th Sitka Salmon Derby Awards Ceremony Thursday at Centennial Hall. Tanner's 19.1-pound salmon earned him 55th place in the derby. Derby fishers chose from 88 donated prizes in order of their derby rankings. This year 12-year-old Emmit Johnson won the derby with a 31.2-pound king. Emmitt received Alaska Airlines round-trip tickets and $4,000 cash for his catch. (Sentinel Photo by James Poulson)

Lane died in a traffic accident here on Christmas Eve. He was 22.
He was born Dec. 8, 1990, at home in Salem, Ore. He attended Salem schools, and first came to Sitka about six years ago. He worked for Sitka AC Lakeside, Sitka Sound Seafood and McGlone & Son Enterprises. In Klawock he worked for AC, and in the sawmill. He also had done some fishing.
He loved his family, loud music, drawing, working with his hands, going fast, and pizza, his family said. He was exceptional at math, and was very creative.
He was preceded in death by a brother, James Edward McGlone.
He is survived by Chanel Mackie and their son, Tyler Michael Robinson, of Sitka and Klawock; his mother, Tina Renee Miller of Sitka; his father, Lee Wallace Robinson of Salem; a brother, Joshua Scott McGlone of Sitka; an aunt, Juli Miller, a cousin, Jon Miller and an uncle, Jace V.
