"I'm not the hero. I was terrified," says Antoinette Tuff. A gunman had walked into an elementary school near Atlanta with an assault rifle and other weapons. Tuff says she spent about an hour with him, telling him about her life. Eventually, he put down his guns and surrendered.
There’s an old story of uncertain origin that Alaska Power and Telephone Company President Bob Grimm thinks applies to his company’s situation. Grimm tells the story like this:
“The Army Corps of Engineers operates a lot of dams on the Columbia River. Early on, there were some concerns about salmon when they put dams on that river. When they put the fish ladders in, they grabbed the first fish that came up one of those ladders,” Grimm said while laughing. “They stuffed that thing and put it on a plaque that said, ‘It never pays to be first.’”
ANCHORAGE — Anchorage voters should be allowed to decide whether the municipality’s new labor law, which in part, limits annual raises for city employees should be repealed, a Superior Court judge has ruled.
Judge Eric Aarseth sided with unions Monday, and ordered the ordinance suspended. He said the city should provide the union with petition ballots by Thursday, the Anchorage Daily News reported.
Prosecutors in Alaska said Tuesday no additional homicide charges will be filed against a 24-year-old man accused in the home-invasion deaths of an elderly Anchorage couple.
They say an autopsy performed on the woman’s mother showed that she suffered a stroke and died of natural causes.
Jerry Active faces 10 felony counts, including charges of murder and sexual assault, in connection with the May 25 attack that killed Sorn Sreap, 73, and her husband, Touch Chea May, 71.
The couple was found beaten to death.
ANCHORAGE — The Anchorage School District plans to spend more than $6 million in state legislative grants on security upgrades following a safety review prompted by the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut.
The upgrades will include panic buttons, front doors that lock electronically, and more surveillance cameras, the Anchorage Daily News reported Monday. There were no plans for bullet-proof glass, metal detectors or arming citizen volunteers.
JUNEAU — Celebrity Cruises announced Tuesday is was cancelling the remainder of a seven-night cruise to Alaska after mechanical issues forced a cruise ship carrying more than 3,100 passengers and crew members to return to port in Ketchikan.
The cruise line said in a statement that passengers would receive refunds of their cruise fares and chartered air travel home. It also said it also was offering future cruise certificates for 100 percent of the fare paid for this cruise.
Young people are interested to get involved with both the local food movement and more conventional forms of agriculture. But many of them are finding their options limited. Ranch and farmland across the plains is going for several thousand dollars an acre, keeping many aspiring farmers out of the market.
The Internet and file sharing have transformed how young people think about possessing music, art, books — even cars. As the millennial generation questions ownership of nearly any possession, they are opting instead to spend money on experiences. And car companies are left scratching their heads.
When she was just 12, Edith Lee-Payne's face was immortalized in an iconic photo from the March on Washington. Decades would pass before Payne learned that her image has been used as part of documentaries, books, calendars and exhibits about the history of the civil rights movement.
