    The Denali Commission in Alaska, set up in 2008 thanks to earmarks by former Senator Ted Stevens, came under withering criticism from … the Denali Commission, or at least one member of it. The Washington Post reported yesterday afternoon on a letter sent by its Inspector General to Rep. Darrell Issa, chair of the House Oversight Committee, asking Congress to fire him and everyone else at the Denali Commission. Calling the bureaucracy “a Congressional experiment that hasn’t worked out well,” Mike Marsh wants Congress to save $7.4 million a year and eliminate a “middleman” agency.

    Denali - The Alaska Gas Pipeline announced today that its open season efforts have not resulted in the customer commitments necessary to continue work on its Alaska North Slope gas pipeline project, which has an overall estimated capital cost of $35 billion (2009 dollars). Denali will withdraw its Federal Energy Regulatory Commission pre-file application and, over the next few months, close out its operations. "Denali is ending its efforts because of a lack of customer support," said Bud Fackrell, Denali President. "Denali is a market-driven company. As such, we cannot spend the billions of dollars necessary to advance the project...

    In a case that could establish a precedent for gun rights advocates, no charges have been filed against a hiker who shot a grizzly in self-defense in Denali National Park on May 28, 2010. The man and his girlfriend--their names were not released--were hiking in brushy country near Tattler Creek when he heard noise to his right. He drew his .45 caliber semi-auto handgun. A grizzly came out of the brush 25 feet away and charged. The man fired seven to nine rounds. The shooting occurred three months after Congress passed a controversial law allowing people to carry loaded guns...

    FAIRBANKS — Officials at Denali National Park and Preserve have released no new details or information regarding the fatal shooting of a grizzly bear by a hiker on Friday in the 6-million-acre park south of Fairbanks. Park officials on Tuesday still had not released the name of the hiker who shot the bear, and rangers are investigating the shooting to determine if it was justified, according to park spokeswoman Kris Fister. She did not say if the park service was contemplating criminal charges against the shooter. A new law passed by Congress in February made it legal to carry firearms...

    Governor Sarah Palin! Or, actually, what she signifies. We've often stated on FR that if the Republicans would only run true conservatives then we'd win more elections. We'd keep the White House, build conservative majorities in congress, replace liberal activist judges with original intent constitutionalists, and eventually overturn Roe v Wade and begin rolling back some of the damage inflicted upon our beloved republic by the socialists and liberals. John McCain's bold choice of the unabashed pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-liberty, small government, strong defense, fiscal conservative, Sarah Palin, signifies a return to conservatism within the Republican Party. And the...

At one point,...

    Much of the detail surrounding the grizzly bear attack that left 52-year-old Joanne Saunders with a ripped-up leg and a broken nose is largely a blur in memory, but the Virginia tourist does recall the speed of the animal that grabbed her just above the ankle Monday in Denali National Park and Preserve. "They're fast,'' she said. "I had no idea they could be so fast. They're just there." Saunders and her husband, James, 54, were atop an 8- to 9-foot rock outcropping near Savage River looking for a hiking route back to the park road when the bear materialized...

    DENALI NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE--People pay a lot of money to take a sight-seeing trip to Mount McKinley's base camp on the Kahiltna Glacier, but Staff Sgt. Chuck Sanders got a window seat in a Chinook helicopter Tuesday courtesy of a training mission for the U.S. Army. Sanders watched as the granite and white peaks slowly went by outside the small door he was seated by. They looked dangerously close to the helicopter in some places, but the snow-covered glacier valleys are often deceptive to the untrained eye. What seemed to be just an arm's length from the door was...
