Plaintiff says won't appeal ballot lawsuit ruling

Sep 29, 2014 -- 11:15am
- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging the merged campaigns of two Alaska gubernatorial candidates says he won't appeal a judge's ruling that an emergency order allowing the ticket was valid. Plaintiff Steve Strait says state lawmakers should enact a permanent regulation to address a legal "train wreck." The Sept. 2 order was issued by Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, who was named in the lawsuit. The order paved the way for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Byron Mallott to join campaigns with independent gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker and run as Walker's lieutenant governor after their lieutenant governor candidates withdrew from their races. The state maintained Alaska statutes are silent on how to fill vacancies left by the withdrawal of a no-party candidate. Superior Court Judge John Suddock sided with the state Friday.

- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 42-year-old Kodiak woman suspected of carrying narcotics was taken into custody in Anchorage as she attempted to board a flight to Kodiak. State Troopers say Tamra M.

After officers obtained a search warrant to conduct a body scan, she was taken to a hospital. Troopers say the scan revealed she was concealing a balloon with smaller items inside her body. Trooper say Jones voluntarily removed the balloon and it contained 24.3 grams of heroin, valued at $24,000 in Kodiak, and 8.3 grams of methamphetamine, valued at $2,500. Jones was charged with four counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance. She was jailed with bail set at $25,000.

- KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - More than 9 inches of rain fell this weekend in Ketchikan, and a landslide temporarily disrupted the flow of the city's water supply. The Ketchikan Daily News reports the city received more than 5.7 inches of rain on Saturday, followed by nearly 3.7 inches on Sunday. The heavy rains sent mud and debris into Granite Basin early Sunday morning, causing turbidity levels to surpass Environmental Protection Agency standards. The city was on back up water for about eight hours until the turbidity settled. The slide also caused trees to plus the drainage at Granite Basin, causing water to go over the top of the dam. The trees will be cleared once water levels drop. Flooding was also reported at Silvis, Whitman, Fawn and Ward lakes.
