AE CCW Staff Writer JUNEAU - Barney McClure is one of many people who have come to Alaska for a change in pace. Before his move to Fairbanks in 1999, he lived a hectic life on the road as a touring musician. He visited the north for the first time in 1985 as a guest artist for the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival. Meeting a special lady and the allure of a more relaxed lifestyle were reasons enough to cement him into one place for a while.
