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.

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.

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.

It happens every day of the week in courtrooms all over Alaska. Today, in Judge Michael Spaan's Anchorage courtroom, the applicant is a woman with curly black hair, a mother.  The judge is hearing bail applications and arraignments. She's ushered from the spectator benches to a podium, where she swears to tell the truth.  She looks at her son, accused of assault and weapons charges in a robbery-gone-wrong. He wears an yellow jumpsuit, handcuffed to another detainee in the jury box. She is his ticket to bail, which would mean getting out of jail until his trial.

The saying goes that when the fireweed-blooms reach the top, summer is almost over. 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.

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.
