So you want to walk on a glacier. The first order of business is to find a glacier to walk on. Turns out that a suitable speciman exists just a little more than a two-hour drive from Anchorage. The Matanuska Glacier is a 27-mile long, 4-mile wide river of ice that wends its way down out of the Chugach Mountains. And it happens to be one of the most car-accessible glaciers in the United States. Getting There - Take the Glenn Highway north of Anchorage. Your first choice is taking the Old Glen Highway at about milepost 29. The old road runs up along the Knik River and across to Palmer.

Editor's note: This story contains a graphic description of the crime. An Anchorage woman's family has received a measure of justice in her cold-case killing Friday, as a man who admitted to playing a part in her stabbing death 13 years ago was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Derrick Torian apologized to the family of his victim, 28-year-old Genevieve Tetpon, but when addressing the court he focused on how the sentence will affect him personally than on how his actions forever affected many lives.

Thanks to Sarah Haltness, a real estate specialist at Dynamic Realty, for her assistance with this list. Home improvement value recovery is really dependent upon the neighborhood standards.

In closing statements Monday at Jessica Beagley's child-abuse trial, the prosecution said that “The Dr. Phil Show” shares the blame for her disciplining her adopted son with hot sauce-- but the defense said she was simply punishing misbehavior. According to prosecutor Cynthia Franklin, Beagley wrote to “Dr. Phil” producers after watching a segment entitled “Angry Mom.” More than a year later, she received a return call asking if she was still angry. The mother of six said she was, and agreed to tape her interactions with her family.

Vendors are getting ready for another year at the Alaska State Fair. According to fair officials, each visitor spends an average of $50 -- a total of $13 million over a span of 12 days. While the fair prepares to make a profit, there are ways to get the most bang for your buck at the annual event. “Tundra” comic artist Chad Carpenter has had a booth at the fair for the past 18 years. “I've acquired a lot of loyal customers who want to come back and see a new book or calendar,” Carpenter said.

Opening statements began Wednesday in the trial against Jessica Beagley. The Beagley case centers on a video that Beagley describes as a cry for help, but prosecutors say is evidence of child abuse. Beagley watched a program on the Dr. Phil talk show entitled "Angry Mom," and thought she'd qualify to be on the show, prosecutors told the jury in opening statements Wednesday. The defense says the program piqued her interest as a way to get help. To demonstrate how angry she was, Beagley had her husband and daughter video tape her interactions with her family, but Dr. Phil's producers said she wasn't angry enough to be on the program.

The murder of 15-year-old Jonathon Hartman is described as one of the worst crimes ever committed in Fairbanks -- but to this day, a debate rages over the four suspects convicted of his 1997 death and whether they actually committed the crime. Fairbanks police say a solid and fast-moving investigation led them to the suspects, with their hard work backed up by a court system that delivered four murder convictions and a lengthy round of appeals. Yet others in the Interior argue the investigation was flawed, saying police abused their power and as a result the wrong people were convicted.

The Air Force believes that it's solved the years-long mystery of why F-22 pilots have suffered potentially dangerous, hypoxia-like symptoms aboard the world's most advanced jet fighter. And the answer is so insanely simple, some Congressmen don't believe it. It's primarily clothing! According to Congressional Testimony by NASA and Air Force experts earlier this month, the problem lies with an inflatable combat vest that was worn -- in combination with rubberized cold-weather survival gear needed for ejection by pilots over cold water.

With school out for the summer, the Anchorage School District is moving to head off a possible rise in vandalism incidents over the next few months. While ASD officials say no major acts of vandalism have been reported at district facilities so far this season, the district is still taking steps to protect its properties and document any perpetrators. Hanshew Middle School is the perfect summer camping site, if you ask Steve Williams. “They have a track over there and they have a Frisbee golf course around it, and I didn't know that until I got here -- totally awesome,” Williams said.
