One of the biggest mysteries of this year's Iditarod was what happened to Jeff King in the race's final hours, when he appeared to have a record-tying fifth victory locked up, only to stop a few miles outside the final checkpoint of Safety and scratch a few hours later.

That's terrifying. Who knew power of attorney could be so easily stripped from the holder by the appointment of a "temporary" guardian?! Doesn't sound like power of attorney was worth anything even when the parents had it, either.

Five months from today, Alaskans will vote on the issue of legalizing marijuana for recreational use, and a sizeable cash infusion to the legalization campaign in the Last Frontier hopes to help win voters' hearts and minds.

Kristina Clark wasn't scared when she tried to hike across an active avalanche zone in Alaska on Saturday. She says that despite the danger, and her eventual arrest, the only thing on her mind was her cat, Ninja, whose health was failing fast.
