Decades ago, Gov. Wally Hickel was ridiculed for his idea of an ocean pipeline carrying fresh Alaska water to parched California. Now entrepreneurs are hoping that they can make good on his general concept by selling clear water from Southeast Alaska’s rainforest to users in the dry south.
A company that once operated a Sitka bottled-water plant but switched its focus to bulk exports says it has confirmed water buyers in drought-stricken California.

Not worth the freight. And water bags in the ocean: you ain't a' goin' nowhere.

I've been to Blue Lake. And into the power plant there outside of Sitka.

There was a sickening pop, followed by an eerie silence as the crowd inside Breakers Bar realized what they’d witnessed: Aliy Zirkle had just broken some woman's arm.

Created by voters in 1976, the Alaska Permanent Fund, which has grown to more than $50 billion, will play a major role in the future finances of the state. But just what form it will take remains to be seen. One thing is clear: the collapse in oil prices stands to intensify the debate.

They keep trying to do this and, the people of Alaska keep shooting it down. Leave it alone already. Look elsewhere for a means of revenue.

Weather permitting, Alaskans will be able to see a total lunar eclipse early Saturday morning. When the moon is completely immersed in the Earth's shadow, it is expected to turn a reddish-orange color for a few fleeting minutes.

Introduction

Whether reporting on powerful oil companies or on residents who live far from the urban centers where decisions are made, Alaska Dispatch's goal is to take an unflinching look at the state, from its massive riches to its abject poverty, and tell these stories to Alaskans and to the world.
