It is unlikely — albeit still possible — that lawmakers in Juneau will send a constitutional amendment before voters that would make Alaska’s Attorney General an elected position.
Rep. Bill Stoltze, R-Chugiak, is the primary sponsor of the resolution, HJR18. He told the Empire Friday that other bills such as the gas line legislation (SB138) and omnibus education bill (HB278) have taken precedence over the measure.
More than 150 students, teachers, parents and other Alaskans chanted “BSA! Raise today!” on the steps of the Capitol Friday as the House of Representatives considered the merits of the omnibus education bill.
Dubbed the “Education Session” by Republican Gov. Sean Parnell earlier this year, the governor’s education reform bill has stayed center stage since the Legislature convened two and a half months ago.
Seattle’s musical roots go deep. Vibrant, cutting edge and independent, true revolutions in sound were born in the city—the home of Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Bing Crosby and Macklemore. Grunge is one of the city’s claims to musical fame, but the musical history isn’t entirely summed up by guitar feedback and distortion pedals—Ray Charles came up in Seattle, as did Jimi Hendrix and the ladies of Heart. To explore the city’s music heritage—and to find a few of the lesser known spots tied to Seattle’s rich musical history—check out the ideas below!

FAIRBANKS — The first two Canada geese of the season have been spotted at Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge in Fairbanks, a sign of spring for winter-weary residents.

ANCHORAGE — Veterans began filtering into the Anchorage Neighborhood Health Center this month as part of a recent deal with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to ease medical access.
The overrun Alaska VA Healthcare System sends about 25 new patients to the Midtown health clinic each week, a routine that started March 17, officials said. The clinic is prepping for nearly 2,000 veterans during the next year, said Kimberly Cohen, the executive director of the health clinic. “We’re fine because we have the physical capacity to expand,” she said.
ANCHORAGE — An Anchorage prison inmate convicted of felony assault in the beating of a corrections officer has been sentenced to 19 more years in prison.

According to prosecutors, Coven asked to make a phone call on Sept. 5, 2012. Winslow instead ordered Coven back to his cell at Anchorage Correctional Complex East.
