When Peter Walton met Mia Tan, she was 36 and he was 72. Now, the two parties are in court over a contract that allegedly granted her a 60-year lease on a downtown Anchorage apartment owned by Walton in exchange for her companionship.

We kind of love this video from Tara Young, who recently paid a visit to Anchorage's Southside Gym, where power lifters who compete in the Special Olympics can be found working out, trash talking and joking around with each other on any given day.

Alaska Dispatch offers news, features and commentary from the Last Frontier.
Introduction

From political corruption to climate change to rural Alaska to the rise of Sarah Palin, Alaska media has struggled to cover stories of importance not only to Alaskans but to the rest of the nation. Alaska Dispatch, Alaska's online-only news site, is devoted to filling this journalism void. 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.
