In capital budget, millions for Juneau infrastructure but nothing for schools

Southeast Alaska News - Wed, 2014-04-09 00:04

Each Alaska senator has an approximate limit on capital budget spending for projects in his or her district — how they spend it is up to them.

Anchorage schools are getting nearly $4.9 million in additional funding from the capital budget. Fairbanks has just over $150,000 headed its way.

Juneau schools aren’t so lucky. There’s nothing in the capital budget for them.

“We can only do so much,” said Sen. Dennis Egan, D-Juneau. “Every project is a need, I don’t argue with that, it’s just trying to prioritize some of this stuff.

Education funding fix passes House, moves to Senate

Southeast Alaska News - Wed, 2014-04-09 00:04

As the Alaska Legislature enters the final week and a half of the “Education Session,” two of the biggest questions facing lawmakers have not been answered.

How much more will schools be paid per student?

What will the state do about the multibillion-dollar liability in the public workers’ and teachers’ retirement systems?

The House of Representatives did little to answer either question Monday during a marathon floor debate on the governor’s omnibus education bill, HB278.

Plane Down Near Bethel, Two Reported Onboard

Alaska and Yukon Headlines - Tue, 2014-04-08 21:52

A Cessna 208 with two pilots on board has crashed outside of Bethel.

Ravn Alaska spokesperson Steve Smith confirms the downed plane was a Hageland Aviation training flight with two pilots on board, and no passengers.

State Troopers say the plane was overdue just after 6:00 p.m. Tuesday and within the hour a local pilot reported seeing burning wreckage to troopers.

Clint Johnson, the Chief of the Alaska Regional Office of the National Transportation Safety Board, says a report came in of smoke on the horizon.

“When they investigated it they found what they believe was a Cessna 208 on the ground and it looks like there was a pretty substantial post crash fire, but we are very much in the formative stages,” Johnson said.

Trooper spokesperson Megan Peters says an Army National Guard Black Hawk helicopter responded with both troopers and fire personal on board and has located the wreckage.

Neither Peters nor Clint Johnson have information about the two pilots.

“This is an active rescue, at this point right now. Troopers have primacy, also the National Guard in Bethel. We wait until they’re done, and we take the investigation from there. At this point right now, it is an active search and rescue,” said Johnson.

An NTSB Investigator from Anchorage is traveling to Bethel Tuesday. Hageland Aviation flies under the banner of Ravn Connect, a company operated by Ravn Alaska, formerly known as Era Alaska.
