by John Carpenter Thursday, July 22, 2010 ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- This week we headed down the Seward Highway to Hope, where we had planned to do our annual story on the pink salmon run on Resurrection Creek. But believe it or not, not everyone in Hope wanted us to make that report -- because not everyone in Hope wants you there. Wednesday was like any other July day at Resurrection Creek in Hope. The pinks are in, and people were there to catch them. The creek is a great place for young anglers to learn about fishing, with humpies a-plenty increasing the odds a kid will hook one -- and thus get hooked on the sport in the process.

by Rhonda McBride Thursday, July 22, 2010 ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A Palmer man working on a water project for the new Mat-Su Valley prison, the Goose Creek Correctional Center, was buried alive Thursday morning. Alaska State Troopers say Prosser-Dagg Construction employee Steven Paul Ziegler, 45, was running a dirt compactor near an old well when the well's concrete casing suddenly gave way. Ziegler fell into a void about 20 feet deep. Other members of the construction crew rushed to the spot but couldn't see or hear Ziegler because he was under a huge volume of dirt.

Sean Warner, the 26-year-old man Anchorage police say administered a fatal dose of heroin Friday to 14-year old-Jena Dolstad, is a Navy veteran -- who, according to his family, was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder following a tour of duty in Afghanistan. “They did medicate him and unfortunately, his medications, it didn't seem to be enough, so he went to the streets,” said Doug Tweedie, Warner's uncle, who spoke with KTUU from his home in Bend, Ore. “Sean was pretty much a regular guy until heroin came into his life,” Tweedie said.

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 the blooms nearly gone in mid-August and students returning to school on Wednesday, the old adage has proven again to be accurate.

As promised, here's my favorite fireweed honey recipe: Fireweed Honey - 50 to 80 fireweed blossoms - 3/4 tsp. alum - 8 cups sugar - 3 cups boiling water Directions: 1. Wash the blooms.

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.

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?
