In an article that appeared on page A1 of Tuesday's Empire, the Empire reported Tina Brown spoke at Monday's City Assembly meeting. Brown was speaking for herself, and not for the Alaska Wildlife Alliance's Southeast Chapter. Brown is the president of that group but said the opinions stated were her own.

A Juneau man on probation for multiple big game hunting violations admitted he broke his probation in an adjudication hearing Thursday in Juneau District Court.Park Myers' public defender Kevin Higgins acknowledged his client's admission of a parole violation before Judge Keith Levy and also said the agreement with the state was Myers would spend 30 days in prison."However, we are putting off disposition for a period of about two weeks," Higgins said. "And will proceed at that time. The date of disposition is the date that Mr. Myers will report to serve his time."
