From Kyle Hopkins in Anchorage --
Pete Kaiser of Bethel has won the first-ever Paul Johnson Memorial Norton Sound 450, the Norton Sound sled dog club says.
Kaiser arrived in Nome at 5:47 a.m. this morning. Former Yukon Quest champ John Schandelmeier of Paxson finished second, followed by Judy Currier of Fairbanks.
"It was a hard run in and both teams came in with a lot of steam," the sled dog club reports.
