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.

State regulators are advising Alaskans to avoid swimming or drinking water at Kenai River beaches, after samples collected last week indicated the presence of elevated bacteria levels. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation says people should also wash after coming into contact with water from the beaches, in addition to rinsing fish harvested there with clean water and cooking seafood to internal temperatures of 145 degrees. The precautions are being recommended to prevent people from coming into contact with enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria, which DEC says can come from warm-blooded animals including birds, seals, dogs and humans.

Nearly three years after a small majority of Bethel voters approved unlimited alcohol sales, a Channel 2 News investigation reveals that crime rates in the region have increased, especially in some of the 56 smaller villages nearby. In October 2009 Bethel voters decided, 615 to 523, to change Bethel from a "damp" community to a "wet" one, removing the previous alcohol import limit of 10.5 ounces per person per month. Perhaps because of the fact there are still no liquor stores or bars located in the Kuskokwim River's main port city, population 6,080, there is a popular opinion among many Bethel residents that not much has changed.
