A young man charged with a brutal stabbing attack at Service High School in 2009, faced a judge Friday morning to plead guilty to attempted murder in the first degree and third-degree assault. Nicholas Chamberlain is accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend, Lori Miebs, 29 times on school grounds. Police say he led her into the woods, promising a surprise, but then attacked her, stabbing her repeatedly with a small knife. He stopped once to change out a bent blade. The attack ended when bystanders came to her aid. On Friday, nearly three years after the crime, Miebs sat in court surrounded by her family.

Nicholas Chamberlain was sentenced to serve 42 years in prison Friday, after he stabbed his ex-girlfriend Lori Miebs dozens of times near Service High School in December 2009. In September, Chamberlain pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree attempted murder and third-degree assault. Judge Michael Wolverton handed down a 60-year sentence with 20 years suspended on the murder charge, as well as a two-year sentence on the assault charge. Prosecutors say Chamberlain lured Miebs into woods near Service High by promising her a surprise, then started stabbing her -- at least 76 times, according to Miebs -- in an attack that saw him stop once to change blades after one got bent.

The No. 6 game of the year was no game at all. It was a gutty performance by a champion on her home turf as Cedar Bourgeois took first place at Mount Marathon for the seventh consecutive time. Bourgeois had dominated the July 4th Mount Marathon race in Seward for years, entering the 2010 race having won the past six straight competitions, but winning number seven would be no easy task. Bourgeois trailed Olympic Nordic skier Holly Brooks by more than two minutes at the half way point of the race.

Bears come with the territory in Alaska, but they may not always be visible. "Most of the time the bear will know you're there long before you do and it will just disappear. It will hide or run away," said Department of Fish and Game biologist Rick Sinnott. Despite that fact, Sinnott reminds those heading into bear country to be ready. "Bear spray has been found to be, in many situations, as effective or maybe even sometimes more effective than a gun. So it's a certainly a lot cheaper than a gun, it's a lot safer than a gun, if you shoot yourself you're just going to be in pain for a while," Sinnott said.

An Anchorage man says he was stomped by a moose guarding her calves near Rabbit Creek Elementary Monday morning.  Shawn Aspelund and his wife, Tami, were hiking the trails just North of the school when they came across the moose and her young.  The moose charged the couple twice and Aspelund was able to push his wife out of the way, but not without finding himself under the hoof. However, thanks to his quick thinking, Aspelund managed to walk away from the attack with just a few scratches.
