Possible military aircraft debris, along with material that may be bone fragments, has been discovered in the Knik Glacier area according to the Alaskan Command. Alaska Army National Guardsmen on board a UH-60 Blackhawk flying a routine training mission discovered the debris at about 1 p.m. Sunday, and conducted a brief aerial inspection before returning to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. Capt. Tania Bryan, director of public affairs for the Alaskan Command, said the crash was believed to be that of a vintage aircraft and “not recent.” She says details about the crash are being withheld pending possible notifications of next of kin. A recovery effort for the wreckage is being considered by the U.S. Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, which conducts search, recovery and laboratory efforts to locate lost service members.

Michelle Theriault and Best fall hikes: Lost Lake Trail | September 29, 2010
All summer long, the Lost Lake Trail thrums with activity: day hikers, backpackers, trail runners, mountain bikers, marmots and the occasional bear can be found traversing this high country gem near Seward. Dotted with iceberg blue lakes and surrounded by peaks, Lost Lake is one of Southcentral Alaska’s  most beloved trails – and for me, high on the list of trails to complete before the snow falls. My hiking partner and I chose to start at the trailhead nearer to Seward and hike to the Primrose Campground, a distance of about 15.75 miles.

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.

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 Anchorage, you don't have to go far to get a caffeine fix. There are coffee stands and coffee shops on practically every corner -- including a new roaster in town that's steaming up the competition. "We take a lot of pride in not over-roasting coffee, and really roasting to a bean's strength," said Steamdot Coffee Company owner and president Jonathan White, stirring through a vat of coffee beans. "This particular bean has great acidity, really, really spicy, sweet tones to it -- and if we go too dark, we'd miss all that and it would taste just like dark coffee.

It's one of the annual rites of being Alaskan: the Permanent Fund Dividend check. The payout is set to be announced September 18th, but I couldn't wait. As part of my process, I used the dividend distribution formula that's set by state law. I took the average of the fund's income over the past 5 years, multiplied it by 21 percent, and divided by two. Bassed on that equation, the sum comes to $604 million.      Next I took the $604 million and subtracted the $1.49 million average of prior year obligations, expenses, and PFD operations that have to be paid out. Working with $602,505,069.66, I divided the number of eligible applicants.

State prosecutors announced Monday that they will not seek a second murder indictment against Mechele Linehan, the woman whose 2007 conviction for the 1996 murder of Kent Leppink was subsequently overturned. Both Linehan and John Carlin III were convicted of first-degree murder in Leppink's death after prosecutors said Linehan, a former stripper, convinced Carlin to kill Leppink. The Alaska Court of Appeals overturned Linehan's conviction in 2010, noting that the state's case against her was circumstantial and that three pieces of evidence, including a letter written by Leppink implicating Linehan were he to die suspiciously, were improperly admitted at trial.
