    (18 Dec 2016) ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE TAKE THE POLAR PLUNGE IN ALASKA More than a thousand people in Alaska on Saturday (17 DEC 2016) dressed up as elves or in other elaborate costumes while some stripped down to barely anything to take part in a polar plunge. The fundraiser for Special Olympics Alaska took place at Goose Lake in Anchorage, where ice had been cut out of a large portion of the lake to allow the plungers room to do their favorite dive, like a cannonball. Other more timid plungers stepped into the 32 degree water, and others got a helping hand from fellow jumpers. David Aromin recently relocated from Philadelphia. He said the jump was a good way to be baptized as an Alaskan. More than $300,000 was raised during the annual fundraiser. Special Olympics Alaska president Jim Ba...

    (8 Sep 2017) Five children, all believed to be girls between the ages of 3 and 12, died in a trailer fire in suburban Anchorage on Thursday morning, authorities said. The bodies will be sent to Anchorage for autopsies and to determine positive identification. Officials were not releasing much information, saying they have a complicated investigation ahead of them. It was not immediately known if the girls were related or if there were adults in the trailer home at the time of the fire. "Any time you have fire deaths it is a tragedy. Certainly when it's five little girls, you don't have to have kids for it to really break your heart," said Megan Peters, spokeswoman for the Alaska State Troopers. Peters said interviews were being conducted, and the fire marshal was working to determine...

"Our Alaskan Winter" is a silent film by Harmon “Bud” Helmericks and Constance Helmericks, circa 1949. The film details the Helmericks' lives as homesteaders in the Brooks Mountain Range of Alaska, and as explorers of northern Alaska and Canada. Bud Helmericks and his first wife Constance (Connie) Helmericks spent more than a decade living in and exploring northern Alaska during the 1940s and 1950s. Constance was the best-selling author of eight non-fiction books, five detailing their lives and adventures in the far north. Films that the couple shot on 16mm color film were the subject of national lecture tours. Shot with great care and artfulness under extreme living conditions, these films depict the unique lives of the Helmericks family, as well as the rapidly-changing lives of Iñupiat peoples during the era of pre-Statehood and pre-pipeline Alaska. Detailed summary information for "We Live in the Arctic" was provided by the filmmakers. According to these notes, the film includes scenes of the “Arctic Tern” (Cessna 170 airplane) on skis; Six different airplanes, all named the “Arctic Tern” and all painted with a bird symbol, were used in the production of the three Helmericks films over seven years; Upon return to Brooks Range cabin in Alaska after many months away, Bud takes down hanging empty gas cans left to scare bears away; Bud shows how the arctic dweller uses an ice chisel — it takes about one hour to cut through the four-foot ice of Takahula Lake; Lifting out net and fish catch; Icy lake water is hauled to the house; Tramping down an airfield for the plane with snowshoes; It is necessary to push a small piece of stove-wood under each ski of the airplane when parked to keep it from freezing down; Oliktok Point on the Arctic Ocean; Friends run out of their door waving joyously; Bud and George work with shovels and flags to make a more safe airplane field; Oolak returns hours later with a load of small driftwood sticks for fuel; Sled with a big sail approaches out of the frozen ocean; Carrie with her boy Maugulauk and husband Jacob; When Carrie becomes ill, Bud flies her to Point Barrow Hospital during wind storm; Back at Oliktok Point camp, Connie directs the airplane to safety; Dog buried in snow in a spring blizzard during month of May; Another dogsled visitor arrives, and all shake hands with Colliak, who has come from 100 miles inland; Caribou butchered; Sawing out new sled from driftwood as Lydia plays about; Apiak, older son, builds sled flooring — it is necessary to make an entirely new sled almost every season; Flight out over the polar ice fifty miles; Landing fifty miles offshore where Apiak had designated a hunting camp in his earlier explorations by sled; Pitch tent; Rifle close at hand in case of polar bears; Travel via dogsled and hunting for seals; Polar bear tracks; Connie comes up to her dead polar bear — shot from the tent at 1 a.m. in late May — feasting (not shown) followed immediately after butchering; Seal meat goes into modern pressure cooker; Apiak serves dogs their meal; Starving seal has lost its diving hole and can’t find the ocean — carried in a sack on the sled to the nearest seal hole and it finally dove down into the ocean; On shore after two months at sea; Summer tent; Lydia, Nannie and George; Saying goodbye; Home to cabin at Takahula Lake; Unloading cargo from Hughes, the trading post (100 miles away), at the new dock at Takahula Lake; Bud cuts moose hide into strips and makes chairs; Connie casting for pike at tent camp at nearby Iniakuk Lake; Broken airplane tail — Bud fixes it by taking off part of the tail and then fortunately it flew OK; Connie catches a grayling; Geese migrating; Grizzly and moose and other animals; Roasting caribou ribs; Connie uses the little yellow kayak on Takahula Lake before winter; Ice pans float down the adjacent Alatna River; Arrigetch Peaks rising above the house; Bud and Connie, in full winter dress, are prepared for winter again; Connie reads contentedly by the blazing hearth.

Background information courtesy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska_highway: The Alaska Highway (also known as the Alaskan Highway, Alaska-Canadian Highway, or ALCAN Highway) was constructed during World War II for the purpose of connecting the contiguous U.S. to Alaska through Canada. It begins at the junction with several Canadian highways in Dawson Creek, British Columbia and runs to Delta Junction, Alaska, via Whitehorse, Yukon. Completed in 1942, it was 2,237 km or 1,390 mi long, but is becoming shorter due to rerouting. The historic end of the highway is near milepost 1422, where it meets the Richardson Highway in Delta Junction, Alaska, about 160 km (99 mi) southeast of Fairbanks. Mileposts on the Richardson Highway are numbered from Valdez, Alaska. The Alaska Highway is popularly (but unofficially) considered part of the Pan-American Highway, which extends south to Argentina.

(8 Sep 2017) Five children, all believed to be girls between the ages of 3 and 12, died in a trailer fire in suburban Anchorage on Thursday morning, authorities said. The bodies will be sent to Anchorage for autopsies and to determine positive identification. Officials were not releasing much information, saying they have a complicated investigation ahead of them. It was not immediately known if the girls were related or if there were adults in the trailer home at the time of the fire. "Any time you have fire deaths it is a tragedy. Certainly when it's five little girls, you don't have to have kids for it to really break your heart," said Megan Peters, spokeswoman for the Alaska State Troopers. Peters said interviews were being conducted, and the fire marshal was working to determine the fire's cause. The home is down a dirt lane, off a major road in an undeveloped suburban area about 45 miles southeast of Anchorage. It is among several other homes in an area between Anchorage and Palmer. Fire officials were notified of the blaze just before 7 a.m. The trailer was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived and were told there were five people unaccounted four. Troopers initially said three bodies had been found and two people were still unaccounted for before increasing the death toll to five. Beyond saying that all five bodies were found inside the trailer, Peters said she didn't yet have a narrative of what happened.

(30 Aug 2017) IN THE SUMMER, THIS QUIRKY SMALL TOWN IN ALASKA GETS INUNDATED WITH TRAVELERS FROM CRUISE SHIPS. nats VISITORS STROLLING DOWN THE QUAINT MAIN STREET CAN FIND RESTAURANTS, ART GALLERIES AND GIFT SHOPS ALL NESTLED IN HISTORIC CABINS. TUCKED IN ONE OF THOSE CABINS IS A NEW BUSINESS THAT IS DIVIDING THIS TOURIST TOWN. SOUNDBITE, MIKE STOLTZ, bed and breakfast owner: "We're not catering to stoner tourists." SOUNDBITE, Joe McAneney, marjiuana store owner: "We've been open two months, and the sky hasn't fallen in Talkeetna." JOE MCANENEY IS THE CO-OWNER OF THE TOWN'S FIRST RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA STORE. IT TOOK HIM MORE THAN TWO YEARS SINCE ALASKA RESIDENTS VOTED TO LEGALIZE RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA IN 2014 TO OPEN HIS BUSINESS. MCANENEY SAYS THE STORE FOLLOWS THE TOWN'S AESTHETICS, BLENDING IN WITH OTHER WOOD CABINS. HE NAMED THE STORE THE HIGH EXPEDITION CO. — A REFERENCE TO THE TOWN'S HISTORY AS A STAGING AREA FOR CLIMBING DENALI. SOUNDBITE Joe McAneney, "As you walk by, there's no pot leaves, there's no big flashing green crosses or anything, it's real subtle. We have sort of a speakeasy vibe going on here, which tends to fit the town." BUT THOSE EFFORTS AREN'T ENOUGH FOR OTHER TOURISM OPERATORS INCLUDING MIKE STOLTZ WHO OWNS A BED AND BREAKFAST. SOUNDBITE, Mike Stoltz, bed and breakfast owner: "My thinking is with the kids, and trying to protect the kids growing up here. That's my No. 1 point. No. 2 point is that we have no law. If somebody gets out of line, you know, like I mentioned earlier, the trooper is an hour away, what are we supposed to do?" STOLTZ SAYS THE POT STORE SHOULD HAVE OPENED OUTSIDE OF THE TOWN'S HISTORIC MAIN STRIP. HE ALSO SAYS THAT SMOKING MARIJUANA IN PUBLIC IS ILLEGAL AND TOURISTS AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH THE STATE LAW. ALASKA STATE TROOPERS SAY THEY'VE ISSUED NO CITATIONS FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION OF MARIJUANA IN THE FIRST FEW MONTHS THE STORE HAS BEEN OPEN. BUT THE RIFT ISN'T JUST AMONG BUSINESS OWNERS. CHRISTIE STOLTZ STANDS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF HER FATHER AND SUPPORTS THE MARIJUANA STORE. SOUNDBITE, Christie Stoltz, Mike' daughter: "I'd be really surprised if people all of a sudden would judge the whole town because there's a marijuana shop." SOUNDBITE, Christie Stoltz, Mike' daughter: "So, I think that, nobody likes change, so I think that's a big thing." ONE STORE CAUSING A BIG RIPPLE AS THE EXPANSION OF LEGAL MARIJUANA INDUSTRY SPREADS TO THE COUNTRY'S NORTHERNMOST STATE… You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/21d3db9acd6d9874da903e04bbba1034 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork
