NEWS Capital City Weekly From left to right: Anya McLaughlin, Shane Reese, Russell Newberry, Sophia McLaughlin, and Travis Lofland pose for photos last Friday at the Alaska Brewing Company as Tony Hand, right, watches from behind the bar. Lofland is a deckhand on the F/V Wizard, and Newberry is a deckhand on the F/V Time Bandit. The two men are stars on Discovery Channel's reality show "The Deadliest Catch." The show is currently in its fifth season of filming the adventures of crab fishermen in the Bering Sea. Lofland and Newberry said the show is successful because it appeals to many tastes and is a good family alternative to football. "People are just infatuated with the show," Newberry said. "But Travis and I are just a couple of guys trying to make mortgage payments. We were fishermen before the show, we're fishermen during the show, and when the show's over, guess what, we'll still be fishermen."
