Both the men's and women's teams are Division I basketball champions this year. Only once before has a school done that in the same year: UConn, in 2004.
But searchers aren't declaring success just yet. And if what they're hearing aren't signals from the plane's black boxes, they may not get a second chance. The boxes' batteries are due to run out.
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.
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.
JUNEAU — The House Rules Committee on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow out-of-state residents to serve on the board of directors of the Alaska Gasline Development Corp.
The committee introduced HB383 at the request of House Speaker Mike Chenault, who was a lead sponsor of a measure passed last year that set up the organization, power and governance of the corporation, known as the AGDC.
ANCHORAGE — The state Senate Finance Committee has backed a $5 million proposal that includes establishing a list of people who would be banned from buying alcohol in Anchorage.
The “no sell” proposal by the Fairview Business Association also calls for comprehensive treatment and case management for the city’s most problematic drinkers.
Protests in eastern Ukraine are the focal point of the country's crisis with implications that stretch beyond its borders. Yet life in most of Donetsk seems untouched by the turmoil.
As a new tornado season begins, Illinois officials say they need more help from the federal government, and Sens. Kirk and Durbin have reintroduced a bill proposing changes to the disaster formula.
A baseball odd couple ends their careers this year: Commissioner Bud Selig and Yankees' shortstop Derek Jeter.
New Common Core teaching standards mean new standardized exams. NPR's Cory Turner took one himself and reports on what's changed.
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.
Anchorage Assembly sets reimbursement rules for campaigning officials, begins considering $10 million surplus
Mary Jane Fate, a Koyukon Athabascan born in Rampart, labored tirelessly to improve all aspects of Alaska Native people’s lives. As one of the original Alaska Native Land Claims Settlement Act lobbyists, she worked with others to convince the White House and Congress of the fairness and justice in conveying 40 million acres and $1 billion to Alaska Natives through the passage of the Native claims act in 1971.
