COMING UP – University of Maine student Stella Moreno helps haul up a seaweed-covered extension ladder that was pulled off the ocean floor near the O'Connell Bridge work float Tuesday. Moreno is one of thirteen students from around the country enrolled in the University of Alaska Southeast Sitka Campus's semester-long intensive SCUBA dive course who have spent the past few days collecting debris from the seafloor. The course, now in its second year, prepares students to do underwater research. (Sentinel Photo by James Poulson)
