Sarah Palin launches online subscription channel

Jul 28, 2014 -- 11:30am
- NEW YORK (AP) - Sarah Palin is starting her own subscription-based online network. The Sarah Palin Channel, which went live on Sunday, bills itself as a "direct connection" for the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate with her supporters, bypassing media filters. Palin says she oversees all content posted to the channel. This will include her own political commentary. Other features for subscribers include the ability to submit questions to Palin and participate with her in online video chats, she says in an online announcement. Membership is set at $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a year. Palin remains active elsewhere as a Fox News Channel contributor and reality-TV personality. The Sarah Palin Channel is part of the TAPP video platform, which launched earlier this year.

Territorial court records will remain in Alaska

Jul 28, 2014 -- 11:15am
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Not all of Alaska's research materials and government records will move to Seattle when the National Archives and Records Administration closes its Anchorage branch. A deal has been reached to let the territorial court records be housed at the Alaska State Archive in Juneau, instead. The Juneau Empire reports  the documents will arrive in the capital on Aug. 4, Aug. 7 and Aug. 8, making the journey on the AlCan Highway and then the last stretch on the ferry from Haines. They will be housed in the state archives' new office building. The research room at the Anchorage facility closed last month. The building will permanently close in September.

Loan approved for Prince of Wales hydro project

Jul 28, 2014 -- 11:00am
- KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - A $20 million loan has been approved for a new hydropower project on Prince of Wales Island. KRBD reports that the Alaska Energy Authority approved the loan to Haida Energy Inc. for construction of the Reynolds Creek project, about 10 miles east of Hydaburg. The loan was approved in June. The project could supply power to all of the island's residents, who currently depend on diesel-generated power during some parts of the year.  Haida Energy Inc. is a joint venture of the Haida Corp. and Alaska Power and Telephone Co., which says the project could significantly cut costs.  Energy Authority deputy director Gene Therriault says the island will be able to produce more energy than it currently needs once the project is complete. Completion is slated for June 2016.

Nome woman cited in musk ox killing

Jul 28, 2014 -- 10:45am
- NOME, Alaska (AP) - A 59-year-old Nome woman has been cited by Alaska State Wildlife Troopers in connection with the killing of a musk ox. KNOM says Diana Adams was cited last week for taking a musk ox out of season in the Icy View subdivision. Adams told the radio station that she has "been charged with illegal taking of game" and has no comment. Herds of musk oxen have been loitering close to town and wildlife officials have been looking for a solution. The Department of Fish and Game is opening a subsistence hunt early for the large shaggy animals, which have attacked pets and damaged property. But only five animals can be killed beginning Aug. 1 because the population in the entire region is shrinking, and the stock must be conserved. 

Eagle freed after rescue from fire

Jul 28, 2014 -- 10:30am
- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Volunteers from the Bird Treatment and Learning Center in Anchorage have released a young bald eagle that was injured in a fire. KTUU says the bird called Sparkie went to the bird center earlier this year with burnt feathers after the feathers were singed when the bird tried to catch rodents running from the fire. The eagle was released Saturday after being returned to Soldotna. Bird center volunteer Dave Dorsey says that even after months in recovery, Sparkie is still a wild animal. The eagle is still brown and is estimated to be three or four years old. Bald eagles don't grow their distinctive white feathers until later.
 

Subsistence Alaska village fights mining road

Jul 28, 2014 -- 10:15am
- ALLAKAKET, Alaska (AP) - After another year of abysmal king salmon runs, with rain-swollen rivers making it near-impossible to catch chum or silvers and with decades of declining moose and caribou populations, the residents of Allakaket are bristling at the prospect of a 200-mile industrial road running through their hunting and fishing grounds. The Fairbanks News-Miner reports the village is opposing a multi-million mining road that would have 15 major river crossings, including over the Alatna River, where Allakaket residents fish. The propose road would spanfrom the Dalton Highway to the Ambler Mining District in Northwest Alaska. The road is being championed by the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority and the Ambler Mining District by Canada-based NovaCopper, which is eyeing what it estimates to be hundreds of millions of tons of copper, zinc and lead in the area.
