Officials are trying to determine the source of an offensive odor coming from the Mendenhall Lake Campground.
Initial testing indicates the smell is not coming from a toxic source, including sewage. But other tests are planned, according to a release from the National Forest Service, which manages the campground.
The Forest Service is working with the City and Borough of Juneau and the State Department of Environmental Conservation to identify the cause of the funky fragrance.
- A 38-year-old Juneau man injured in an officer-involved shooting early Saturday on Ocean View Drive has been medevaced to Seattle.
- Juneau police reported five people injured in a four-vehicle accident on Egan Drive at Fred Meyer.
- A state economist said the oil and gas industry is shrinking fast, but it could bottom out soon.
- Tlingit battle helmets were designed to inspire fear. The thick, wooden head armor carried imagery of strong warriors, fierce animals or revered ancestors.
