Alaska: Knowles' Exxon Proposal Full of False Hope Says Murkowski - Following the announcement that Tony Knowles would introduce federal legislation to "force" a judgment in the Exxon Valdez settlement case, U.S. Senator Murkowski blasted her opponent's actions as a campaign promise full of false hope.

Murkowski said that Knowles had eight years as Governor of Alaska to leverage for a final settlement of the Exxon Valdez case. Now, when Knowles has decided to run for the Senate and needs the votes of Alaska's fishermen and those affected by the 1989 spill, he has decided to take up the issue.

photosA Legendary Mountain of Jade; Just one of Alaska's Arctic Wonders - Alaska is a state of superlatives. It is the nation's largest state. We drive past or fly over  America's highest mountain. We can visit the nation's deepest cave on Prince of Wales Island, admire the waters of our state's longest coastline and enjoy the  midnight sun's longest days. Most of us, however, will never see our superlative example of the Alaska State Gem - jade. That's because Jade Mountain, an entire mountain made of beautiful dark green jade, is far from any Alaska road system. - More...
