"Everybody is feeling so relieved, and are excited to just to have found her, and alive, that's just huge," said Amanda Randles, a friend of Gould's.

After Talkeetna musher Melanie Gould, 34, was found Saturday in Cantwell, there are now mixed opinions on whether Gould owes an explanation as to why she disappeared. The search for Gould began more than a week ago after her friends reported she failed to show up to work, and left her dog team unattended. When her truck was found last Saturday off the Denali Highway by an Alaska Wildlife Trooper in a helicopter, Alaska State Troopers joined the search efforts. Troopers called off an extensive three-day search of the area Thursday that involved 25 ground searchers, more than 20 different search dogs, 185 flight hours and four ATVs that covered 400 miles of trails.

A New Hampshire state representative has resigned over disparaging comments he posted on Facebook about Sarah Palin.  Democrat Timothy Horrigan posted on his Facebook page that the former Alaska governor would be more dangerous dead. The comments came after Monday's deadly plane crash near Dillingham, where five people died -- including former Sen. Ted Stevens.   New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch, a Democrat, thought the comments were inappropriate. “I think the comments are absolutely inappropriate -- they have no place in the public discourse and I find them to be very, very offensive,” Lynch said.

Could it be one of our latest snows ever? The answer is a simple yes. The latest measurable snow for Anchorage occurred on May 22, 1964. If we get some accumulation into  this  weekend, it would be the second latest snow on record. Upper wind flow from the Arctic Region and colder air aloft can easily make snow. A surface front will arrive from the northwest to provide more lift and another system will pass Kodiak Island and head through Cook Inlet to act as the main moisture source.

Well, well, what have we here? A disappointing early spring perhaps? It just so happens that many are frustrated with what's been happening lately, but at least the gravel is getting picked up. Record snowfall in the winter of 2011-2012 was followed by a wet summer, with flooding into the fall that year. The soggy experience was followed by another long winter with above average snowfall. This spring we just can't get rid of all the snow, and Southcentral is having a rough time getting daytime temperatures above 45 degrees.

In the wake of the twin Monday blasts that rocked the Boston Marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 100, a small act of kindness by an Alaskan is getting a big response on the Internet. According to a Tuesday post on runner Laura Wellington's Facebook page, she was about half a mile from completing the marathon when the explosions at the finish line -- where she was planning to meet with her family -- caused police to divert her away from the area. Distraught, Wellington walked along Massachusetts Avenue, trying to reach her loved ones by cellphone.
