There are 22 restaurants in Anchorage with six or more critical violations. In a list of those restaurants which DHHS gave to Channel 2, three were tied for first place with nine violations each. One of them was Indian eatery Bombay Deluxe, at 555 W Northern Lights Blvd.

10 days from now, on September 10th, the State Senate will hold a field hearing in Fairbanks to try to get at the bottom of a nagging question:     Why are gas prices in Alaska so high?     This evening (Friday) the website "GasBuddy.Com" showed that Alaska was 41st in the nation in gas prices. 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.

Forces both natural and man-made occasionally put the outdoorsmen of Alaska in a tough spot. In this week's Fishing Report, Channel 2's Kari Bustamante heads to a popular fishing destination that continues to prove fruitful -- despite a recent run of bad luck. The flood of 2012 nearly redesigned the streams in Willow, according to Mike Coughlin with Susitna Valley River Guides. “We had about three weeks of rain last fall and this river flooded - boy, for about two weeks it was really, really high,” Coughlin said.

One vendor at the Alaska State Fair is putting a sweet spin on the regular grilled burger. The fair's Chipstix stand is currently selling donut burgers. The treat combines one-third of a pound of charbroiled beef, eggs and bacon, all tucked between the halves of a glazed donut. The donut burger originated in Atlanta, Ga. The novel treat debuted at the Alaska State Fair this year with good reactions. Chipstix plans on making the donut burger a regular menu item at future fairs.

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.

April 15 is still Tax Day across the U.S., but another deadline set to fall on the same day -- Alaska's date for the removal of studded tires from motor vehicles -- is now three weeks away throughout the state. According to a Tuesday statement from Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Beth Ipsen, an emergency order from Department of Public Safety Commissioner Joe Masters has extended the deadline to May 1 for all roads in Alaska, due to recent snow and road conditions. Under state law roads north of 60 degrees latitude, as well as the Sterling Highway, always fall under the May 1 deadline.

With the blooms nearly gone in mid-August and students returning to school on Wednesday, the old adage has proven again to be accurate. Fireweed jam and honey have been popular since homesteading days. Time is running out to harvest the flowers. 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.

Sixty-four years ago, Anchorage was cold. The city met a meteorological milestone, but probably not the kind anyone was thrilled about. According the National Weather Service Records, on Feb. 3, 1947, Anchorage recorded its all-time lowest temperature of minus 38 degrees. Records begin in 1914. That coldest reading was measured at the east end of 5th Avenue, what is now the Merrill Field area. That cold spell reached into Canada as well -- on the same day Canadians recorded a minus 81 degree temperature just 20 miles from the border with Alaska.

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.
