Walker names Hummel as adjutant general for Alaska

Jan 30, 2015 -- 12:45pm
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Gov. Bill Walker has named Laurie Hummel as Alaska's new adjutant general. Hummel is a retired colonel in the U.S. Army. She unsuccessfully ran for the state Legislature last year. The announcement was made in Anchorage. Brig. Gen. Leon "Mike" Bridges had been serving as acting adjutant general following the ouster of Thomas Katkus last year. Then-Gov. Sean Parnell asked for Katkus' resignation as part of a leadership change stemming from a scathing report that looked into allegations of misconduct within the Alaska National Guard.  The report found that victims did not trust the system because of a lack of confidence in the command.

State lawmakers riled up over federal actions

Jan 30, 2015 -- 12:30pm
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - One Alaska state senator is advocating an act of civil disobedience against the federal government and another warned at the end of a light-hearted poem that Alaskans are "packing heat." The pushback against federal overreach continues at the Alaska Capitol, and comes less than a week after President Obama proposed most of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge be protected as wilderness, including the refuge's potentially oil-rich coastal plain. Sen. Mike Dunleavy says the state needs to do more than issue proclamations. He's proposing the state begin surveying a road through a wildlife refuge near King Cove after the Interior department rejected it. Sen. Click Bishop delivered a takedown of federal actions in Dr. Seuss-style Friday. He said Alaskans might seem sweet, but chances are "we're packin' heat!"

Pot legalization puts Alaska drug-sniffing dogs out of work

Jan 30, 2015 -- 12:15pm
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The legalization of marijuana in Alaska is putting some police dogs out of work. The Juneau Empire reports that 10 drug-sniffing dogs used by the Alaska State Troopers will be taken out of service when recreational use of marijuana becomes legal Feb. 24. The 10 Belgian malinois, Dutch shepherds, German shepherds, Czech shepherds and yellow Labrador retrievers have been trained to sniff out pot, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine. Since the dogs can't be untrained to ignore marijuana, they will have to be retired and new dogs will have to be trained to be on the alert for the last three illegal substances. It will cost the state about $500,000 to buy and train a new pack of drug-sniffing dogs. Troopers are considering options including adoption for the retiring dogs.

Search suspended for woman missing along Kuskokwim River

Jan 30, 2015 -- 12:00pm
- BETHEL, Alaska (AP) - The search has been suspended for the third person missing since December when a snowstorm hit the Kwethluk area. KYUK reports the all-volunteer search for 27-year-old Sally Stone was suspended because of cold weather, equipment in need of repair and low morale. Stone and two others from Aniak were traveling on a snowmobile Dec. 12 on the Kuskokwim River. The body of one of the other riders, 51-year-old Ralph "Jimmy" Demantle, was found in mid-December near open water where the four-wheeler was recovered soon after the group went missing. The body of 26-year-old George Evan was found about 46 feet underwater by a remote-operated vehicle. Officials with the volunteer Bethel Search and Rescue organization says at some point, the search for Stone will start up again.

Overdue plane found on lake near Cook Inlet

Jan 29, 2015 -- 5:00pm
- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Searchers have rescued a pilot on a lake west of Cook Inlet. The pilot was found Thursday and transported to a Soldotna hospital. Clint Johnson with the National Transportation Safety Board tells Channel-2 News it was his understanding that the unidentified pilot didn't have any injuries. Johnson says the Cessna 180 was found at the crash site on Chakachamna Lake. The plane had partially broken through the ice. Rescuers began searching after the plane was reported overdue when it didn't return as planned to Soldotna on Wednesday. The lake was the plane's destination. The investigation will include when and why the plane went down.
