A memorial service for former Juneau Assembly Member David Stone will be at Centennial Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 5, from 2 p.m. to 4 pm.
Stone died unexpectedly last week. He was 55 years old.
He was Deputy Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
Stone served on the Juneau Assembly for nine years and was Finance Committee Chairman for much of that time. He also served as Deputy Mayor of Juneau.
- "Juneau to Minneapolis for $361. New York for $365, which is insane. The fares dropped by $100 to $200 overnight. And adjusted for inflation, really, Juneau has never ever seen these exceptional rates," said travel analyst Scott McMurren.
- The facts of what happened aren't clear yet. The body is on its way to Anchorage for autopsy, and state investigators were Barrow-bound.
- Senate Minority Leader Berta Gardner, an Anchorage Democrat, said her caucus members were disappointed.
- A commercial truck ripped through telephone lines near the Mendenhall Mall on Wednesday afternoon.
