Alaska News Roundup for August 26

  • President Obama will be visiting Seward, Dillingham, Kotzebue, Anchorage, via the Seward City News, Juneau Empire, and historical inference. There may be more places announced in the coming days (fingers crossed!)
  • Alaska might be beside themselves with glee as Mr. President visits next week, but as the Washington Post points out…he isn’t the first. Their article lists the previous presidents that have visited the Last Frontier, where they traveled and for how long. Biggest surprise? FDR fishing in Juneau while wearing a suit and fedora!

Alaska News Roundup for June 17

  • The Homer City Council hosted a presentation by the Navy over their intended summer exercises in the Gulf of Alaska (including the use of bombs, toxic chemicals and high-power sonar). The Homer Tribune reports that the presentation did not quell the ever-increasing hostilities of the community toward this exercise. The Homer City Council will vote during their next meeting to pass a resolution (to join many other coastal communities) against the current planned exercises and for the time frame to be moved to the fall.

  • Sen. Charlie Huggins’ (R-Wasilla) convict legislative aide has in fact remained on the state’s payroll despite her 2014 fourth-degree assault charge and subsequent Outside treatment that has lasted for months. The Juneau Empire not only reports that her legislative pay will stop at the end of this month but also why Deborah Grundmann remained on the payroll for so long without working.
  • Kodiak City Council has approved the proposed re-design of the new fire station and a reassessment on the condition of the “old” library to no more than $100K.
