    Daily Star (UK) ^ | 10/16/16 | Rachel O'Donoghue
    An unnamed former senior military officer has apparently claimed all evidence shows Russian submarines will enter the US via the small village of Wasilla, in Alaska. According to the ex-Navy brass, the stretch of coastline is totally unprotected and would be ideal to stage an attack from. He said: ďOur feeling in the Navy was that Obama had turned Alaska into a defenseless area that will serve as a forward base of operations when World War III begins. ďWe are the verge of being invaded from Alaska all the way down into Canada and eventually the Northwest.Ē

    Alaskans wonít find any information about Donald Trump in their voterís guide this year, after the GOP presidential nominee's campaign failed to submit biographical data and a candidate statement. The voter guide, which hit mailboxes this weekend, includes candidate statements from Democrats Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, Green Party nominee Jill Stein and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka, the Constitution Party nominee and an independent candidate. But state elections officials say the Trump campaign and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson did not submit materials ahead of an Aug. 30 deadline.

    A bronze buckle and a cylindrical metal bead found in Alaska are the first hard evidence of trade between Asia and the indigenous peoples of the North American Arctic, centuries before contact with Europeans, archaeologists say. An analysis of the artifacts has shown that they were smelted in East Asia out of lead, copper, and tin, before finding their way to an indigenous village some 700 years ago.

    A rash of unsolved outdoor homicides in Alaska's largest city is putting residents on edge. Altogether, the deaths of nine people who were killed on Anchorage trails, parks and isolated streets since January remain unsolved ó among them three cases involving two victims each. "It's terrifying," said Jennifer Hazen, a longtime resident who lives near Valley of the Moon Park, where two people were found dead early Sunday, one of them on a park bike trail. Hazen walks in the park regularly, and finds some comfort in knowing the unsolved homicides occurred in the middle of the night when she...

    Alaska has long allowed authorities and hunters to kill bears and wolves on national wildlife refuges as part of what it called an ďintensive predator managementĒ program.

And why, after any shooting, do you always want to take away firearms from the innocent people...

A three-judge panel initially ruled that the San Diego County Sheriff's Department did not have the right to deny the permit. The case was subsequently heard by the entire Ninth Circuit Court and their decision was...
