2015 Iditarod restart moves from Willow to Fairbanks

For the second time in its history, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race will begin in Fairbanks, though race officials still plan to hold the ceremonial start in Anchorage. On Tuesday, the Iditarod Trail Committee’s board of directors voted unanimously to move the start of the race from Willow, citing poor trail conditions.  Stan Hooley, CEO of the Iditarod Trail Committee, says the decision was made after board members observed potentially dangerous areas on the trail by helicopter.

“It was a pretty easy decision to make when the consensus was that the conditions were far worse than they were last year.”

Su-Valley to add sixth-grade classes next school year

Starting next school year, Su-Valley will begin offering sixth-grade.  School and District officials say the idea is to add more options for students and parents.  KTNA’s Phillip Manning talked with two local principals about how the changes will work.

The new sixth-grade program at Su-Valley will include students from Talkeetna, Trapper Creek, and Willow Elementary Schools.  One thing that all of the administrators I spoke to made very clear is that parents and students will be the ones to decide whether they stay at their respective elementary school or go to the junior and senior high.

Dr. Barbara Doty fills Borough Assembly vacancy

The Mat-Su Borough Assembly has selected Dr. Barbara Doty to fill the vacant District 6 Assembly seat.

On Friday, borough spokeswoman Patty Sullivan shared a memo from Borough Manager John Moosey announcing the selection.  Moosey says the Assembly interviewed four candidates for the seat on Thursday evening and selected Doty unanimously.

In her application for the Assembly seat, Doty says she is an independent moderate.  She holds an M.D. from the University of Washington, and received her Alaska medical license in 1985.  Doty says she has owned multiple businesses within the borough, both in and out of the medical field.  Dr. Barbara Doty lives in the Wolf Lake area of Wasilla and operates her family medicine practice in Palmer.

Doty was sworn in as the District 6 Assembly Member at the end of Thursday’s special meeting, and will take her seat at the next regular meeting on February 17th.

Gov. Walker releases revised state budget proposal

The complete proposal can be found at the Office of Management and Budget website.

On Thursday, Governor Bill Walker released his amended budget proposal for next fiscal year.  Walker describes the state’s projected budget deficit as about $10 million per day, in large part due to low oil prices.  Oil revenues account for as much as ninety percent of the state’s total income.

Governor Walker has said since taking office that cuts will be necessary in order to bring state expenditures closer to revenues.  While the state does have billions in reserve, current estimates show that those could be depleted in just a few years if the budget deficit were to remain as it currently stands.  Walker says he is aiming to cut down on overhead while minimizing impacts on state services.
