A new adult re-entry program is helping former inmates transition back into society and trying to keep them out of jail. According to the Alaska Department of Corrections, nearly half of the inmates released will get locked up again in a year and about two-thirds within three years. State officials say the New Life Development Center in Anchorage is putting the brakes on the revolving door. “I sat in the same chair, I was in the same dining hall, I know what it's like to think, 'I'm about to get out in six weeks, I don't know where I'm going,'" said Kelvin Lee, a former inmate for 15 years and President/CEO at New Life Development Center.

In other words, 40 states had gasoline cheaper than ours!     While the average price of a gallon here is $3.93, in Colorado -- the cheapest gasoline-state in the nation -- it was $3.52 -- nearly 40 cents lower.

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.

In Anchorage Superior Court on Thursday, Eisman admitted that he secretly videotaped friends and colleagues in private situations and pleaded guilty to charges of indecent viewing and felony possession of child pornography found on his home computer.

A recovering alcoholic and drug addict, Thaddeus Lewis has spent nearly two decades in and out of jails in Alaska. The courts have tried to supervise him in almost every way imaginable, including third party custodian - the system used in Alaska courts that puts friends and family in charge of watching defendants awaiting trial 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To him, human third party custodians are just that: human.  “If (the defendant) were going to go out and do something wrong, how hard is it to tell on that person?

A cat named Stubbs has been the mayor of Talkeetna for nearly all of his life -- no joke. It's been that way for more than a decade in the small tourist town that boasts nearly 900 residents. The part-manx was named honorary mayor shortly after his birth, and now locals all know the cat as "Mayor Stubbs. " "He was just in the Alaska Magazine, and he's been featured in a few different things," said Lauri Stec, who works at Nagley's General Store in Talkeetna, where Stubbs hangs out most of the time.

Friday’s diversion of three flights headed for Japan to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport was an unexpected bump in international passenger traffic through what used to be a hub for jet-setters.   In the 1980s, Anchorage was a high-traffic stop for worldwide travel. Today, while Anchorage is still a major player in the cargo world, the passengers have gone away.   Another airline, China Airlines, bids Anchorage farewell next month. Twenty years ago the North Terminal was known as the “International Terminal,” and for good reason -- it was constantly busy as jetliners stopped in Anchorage to refuel because of closed Soviet airspace.
