By Rebecca Palsha: Less money, less time and slower caseloads for the Alaska Court System
“From the average Alaskans perspective if you’re a witness or a victim of a crime or you’re a family member of someone effected by a crime, or their a defendant or a victim it means that there’s likely further delays in the criminal justice system,” Clint Campion Anchorage District Attorney said, “so the delay is a lack of, closure is probably the wrong word, but there’s a lack of finality in terms of it doesn’t happen as fast as we’d like to see it happen.”

Author: Devin Kelly Sullivan Arena posts $600,000 operating loss for 2016, well before Aces exit
In good times, which stretch back more than a decade, the arena split its profit with the city. In 2015, the city received $15,165, deposited into a capital reserve account for future repairs and renovations.

Interpreting Alaska Native Art through Rauschenberg and Benjamin | Arts & Entertainment | anchoragepress.com

I am at Pleiades Gallery in New York City for my own solo show “Underpinnings, Truth is Found Beneath Surfaces.” Using strong colors, often clashing, I paint what is often overlooked: ropes on a dock; basement pipes; yes, hydrants. Presenting paintings to a Chelsea audience or putting my ego onto a wall is always daunting, but hopefully makes me a more sensitive art critic.
