Hickel floats plan to cover budget gap

Faced with millions of dollars in cuts to municipal programs by the state, Alaska cities are looking for solutions to budget shortfalls. Former Gov. Walter J. Hickel says he's got one: using money from the Permanent Fund dividend. Hickel, founder of Institute of the North, an Anchorage-based organization that explores Alaska public policy, said the community dividend would take half the money used to pay the dividend and distribute it to cities. "It came out of the whole idea of my objection to the dividend going out with no benefit to the state," Hickel said, noting that Alaskans have traded in their "pioneering spirit" for a "gimme mentality."

Iceland president says whale hunt only for research

ANCHORAGE - The president of Iceland said Monday it would be wrong to ascribe any motive other than research to the country's first whale hunt in more than a decade. Iceland launched three ships on Sunday to begin hunting for 38 minke whales this month and next, despite the contention of several governments, including the United States, there is no scientific basis for the research. Animal welfare groups worry the hunt is a first step to determine international reaction to the possible resumption of commercial whaling by Iceland.
