As the standoff continues in Crimea, Russia warns the U.S. against "hasty" sanctions. Ukraine officials accuse pro-Russian forces of armed aggression.
Grafton, N. H., is so tiny, it doesn't even have a stop light, but a group of Libertarians have moved there with an eye to slashing spending. It's made some residents angry.
Detroit has long been a city divided among racial and economic lines. As the city attempts to recover, some see the change as an opportunity to heal those old wounds.
There are an estimated 80,000 abandoned buildings scattered throughout Detroit. As the city tries to navigate its bankruptcy, part of Detroit's recovery plan involves deconstruction and demolition.
University officials say their policies prohibiting guns on system campuses are legal and constitutional. The primary backers of a bill to strike down the prohibition say it ain’t so.
The University of Alaska System released a 13-page legal analysis Wednesday defending its gun policy. The Empire received a copy Friday.
The analysis states that lawmakers in Juneau have prohibited municipalities from expanding firearm regulation but have not done the same for the university.
Lawmakers will increase school funding this year — but with the majority of the session in the books, no one is saying by how much.
In the fight over the per-student Base Student Allocation, the final result likely will be a compromise between Republican and Democratic proposals. School districts are scheduled to receive $5,680 per student in fiscal year 2014. That amount has not changed since 2011, and school districts say they need more money to balance rising costs.
JUNEAU — U.S. Sen. Mark Begich has proposed a bill that would have a federal official help Alaska with a major project to export liquefied natural gas overseas.
The bill would allow the federal coordinator for Alaska’s gas-pipeline projects to work on the effort to build an 800-mile pipeline that would deliver liquefied natural gas for overseas export. Alaska is weighing an equity stake in the project alongside pipeline builder TransCanada Corp. and the BP, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil Corp. Those oil companies have major operations on the North Slope.
JUNEAU — Prisons.
Those words for Alaska may mean something radically different if a sweeping crime bill, shepherded by Senate Majority Leader John Coghill, R-North Pole, passes the Legislature.
Coghill, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, has taken the lead in a bipartisan effort to keep Alaska’s incarceration rate from swallowing up millions of state dollars badly needed elsewhere in such places as education.
Aliy Zirkle continued her lead over Martin Buser and Sonny Lindner Saturday night in the 2014 Iditarod. She arrived in Unalakleet first and left first.
Buser, Lindner, Jeff King and Aaron Burmeister were still in Unalakleet at 10:00 p.m. Zirkle and Buser were battling for the lead much of Saturday.
The race continued to take its toll on mushers and their teams. Nicolas Petit, who was racing near the front, scratched Saturday night just outside of Unalakleet. He told his officials he was concerned for the welfare of his dogs. Earlier in the day, Ramey Smyth scratched in Ruby saying that some of his dogs were sick.
Mitch Seavey, the 2013 champion, was on the outskirts of Unalakleet Saturday night about 10:15.
Abbie West continued to lead the rookie field. She was out of Kaltag Saturday night.
Military radar shows the vanished Boeing 777 may have turned back, Malaysia's air force chief said. The international search in South China Sea continues.
The Sitka Wolves have won the Southeast region 3A basketball tournament.
The Wolves decisively beat the Mt. Edgecumbe Braves Saturday afternoon, 62 to 45.
The game was a rematch between these same two teams from the previous afternoon. In Friday’s contest, Mt. Edgecumbe trailed Sitka by 14 points going into the fourth quarter, but rallied, tied the game with less than a minute to play, and eventually won by 5.
On Saturday, however, Sitka was a different team. Mt. Edgecumbe athletic director Andrew Friske, calling the game on the Juneau-Douglas High School web stream, summed up the Wolves’ play like this:
“Sitka has had a solid game. They’ve had a couple of turnovers, but overall they’ve controlled the tempo of this game, they’ve owned the glass, and had a good game plan coming in here to get the ball inside. Minimal 3-point shots. Pound it inside with AJ (Inman) and Brian (Way). A good game plan by the Sitka Wolves so far.”
Sitka will represent the Southeast region in state tournament action beginning later this week in Anchorage. The challenge for Sitka — and all teams in the 3A classification — will be overcoming Monroe Catholic, a perennial powerhouse which has dominated even some 4A schools in the Anchorage area this season.
The Mt. Edgecumbe Lady Braves defeated Sitka on Friday to capture the regional 3A crown in girls basketball. The score was 49 – 42.
Sitka was the defending Region V champion, and was expected to repeat this season. However a broken wrist kept point guard Sid Riggs sidelined until this tournament.
Daily Sitka Sentinel sports editor Tom Hesse, who covered regional tournament play, says the Sitka girls were starting to show signs of their early promise, but just ran out of time.
“They saw a little bit of Sid Riggs at the end of the regular season, as Sitka was trying to work Sid back into the lineup. And you could tell there was a difference when she did play, and when she was playing well, you could see Mt. Edgecumbe having to adapt to the speed. It’s like borrowing your friend’s BMW and realizing that you get a lot more kick when you step on the accelerator.”
The Mt. Edgecumbe Lady Braves will face either Galena or Valdez when the state tournament kicks off later this week.
In 2011, two Pennsylvania judges were sent to prison for getting paid for keeping juvenile detention centers full. A new documentary looks back at the case, interviewing kids and the judges involved.
