Alaska: Campaigns Notified of Sign Encroachment - The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities recently sent letters to all candidates for public office in the upcoming primary and general elections, alerting campaigns of state law prohibiting the placement of signs inside or within 660 feet of state highway rights-of-way.

The law requires that signs placed within the state's right-of-way be removed immediately. Those placed on private land within 660 feet of the right-of-way are considered outdoor advertising and have to be removed after 30-day notice is provided to the campaign and the property owner.

"We are expecting a typical campaign season, but wanted to make sure every candidate is aware of the rules regarding sign placement along Alaska's highways," said Alasak DOT&PF Commissioner Mike Barton. "Candidates make a significant investment in their signs,and should take the time to ensure their volunteers understand where signs can be erected, as well as what the law requires when they are put up in or near state right-of-way. Failure to observe these requirements could jeopardize Alaska's federal highway funding." - Read more...

photosFairbanks: Golden Heart City; A story of its founding - In the summer of 1901, bustling, one-year-old Ketchikan was building its first schoolhouse and had set a hefty tax rate of 7.5 mills to pay for it. Juneau was busily producing gold and had just been named the new capital city of Seward's Ice Box, snatching that honor away from beautiful little Sitka, once the Russian capital of Alaska. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
