PND Engineers Hires Nathan Harris and Logan Imlach
PND Engineers is excited to introduce our two newest Alaska-registered professional civil engineers: Nathan Harris and Logan Imlach. Both are proud University of Alaska Anchorage graduates and received their PE designations in December.
Harris joined PND in in September 2015, shortly after receiving his bachelor of science degree in civil engineering. Since then, he has gained significant experience in transportation design, estimating, heavy civil construction inspection, and contract administration. He worked previously for the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities, first as an intern and then as an engineering assistant.
Harris joined PND in August 2018 and has performed structural design primarily on marine and oil and gas industry projects, including North Slope construction. Harris’ previous work with other Alaska engineering firms ranged from small civil projects to project management during the construction of two extended reach drilling rigs on the Slope and planning, permitting, and designing both gravel and paved roads. Harris received his bachelor of science degree in civil engineering in 2010.

The Marx Bros. Café
Jack Amon and Richard “Van” Hale opened the doors of the Marx Bros. Café on October 18, 1979; however, the two had already been partners in cuisine for some time, having created the Wednesday Night Gourmet Wine Tasting Society and Volleyball Team Which Now Meets on Sunday, a weekly evening of food and wine. It was actually the end of the weekly event that spurred the name of the restaurant: hours after its final service, Amon and Hale were hauling equipment and furnishings out of their old location and to their now-iconic building on Third Street, all while managing arguments about equipment ownership, a visit from the police, and quite a bit of wine. “If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘A Night at the Opera” starring the Marx Brothers, that’s what it was like,” Hale explains.
