Ketchikan: 1984 Case Closed As 'Solved' - The Alaska State Troopers & Alaska Bureau of Investigation's Cold Case Unit has closed a 1984 Ketchikan case as 'solved'.

On November 12, 1984 a 1969 Pontiac stationwagon belonging to Clarence Kemp, age 73 of Ketchikan was found abandoned at 6.5 mile South Tongass Highway outside of Ketchikan. Kemp was last seen by friends and relatives four days earlier. A search was conducted for Mr. Kemp but he was not found. On May 5, 1985, Kemp's body was discovered near 11.5 mile South Tongass Highway at the bottom of an embankment by a boy looking for firewood. Autopsy results indicated that Mr. Kemp died from a single .45 caliber gunshot wound to the back of the head. Investigation at the time produced insufficient evidence to make an arrest and the case remained unsolved. Read more...

audioKetchikan: Listen to this story... When the Ketchikan City Council meets Thursday, it will consider a ban on smoking in restaurants and other public building within the city. The measure is being hailed by tobacco prevention advocates as a way of minimizing the public's exposure to second-hand-smoke. But business owners say it's not up to government to tell them whether smoking should be allowed in their establishments. Deanna Garrison has this report.

A biography of Alaska's herring: A little fish of huge importance

And when was the last time you had baked, fried, roasted, grilled or pickled herring? The only time most people come in contact with herring is when they skewer a chunk of it onto a hook for bait when salmon fishing. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
