Alternating warm and cold layers of air bend light to create the effect. (AP Photo/The Anchorage Daily News, Marc Lester)

    My parents called today and said they had a bear in their yard, so i buzzed down the street (I live all of a mile away) and lo and behold, a large grizzly bear right next to the back porch! I ve lived in North Pole for 32 years and have never seen a bear in the yard! He s beautiful, but I was just out back last week while visiting, got to remember there s other things in the woods behind the house other than mosquitoes! Kevin Thompson, North Pole
