Alaska Republicans have adopted a new rule requiring those elected as party chair, vice-chair to have been registered Republicans for at least four years immediately preceding the election.

Warm, dry, windy weather is creating a fire hazard in Southeast Alaska's Tongass rainforest, where wildfires are uncommon.

Also in Southeast Alaska, the state's forecast for king salmon returns this season are double those of last year.

Alaskans are saying goodbye to their longest-serving representative; Carl Moses died at age 84.
