Only in Bethel, Alaska would a driver lead police on an hour long car chase in a town with no roads in or out! There are only 8 or 9 miles of roads and the state highway system is over 400 miles away. What was he thinking? Obviously, not much!
A Soldotna State Trooper pulled over a suspect in mid winter when the temperature was 20 below zero. The presumably intoxicated driver, got out of his car and ran into some nearby uninhabitated woods, wearing no coat – only a short sleeved tee shirt…and no shoes! State law enforcement procedure is simple in a case like this. Just sit back in your heated car and read the newspaper. The suspect reappeared in less than 15 minutes!
Another example of our tax dollars at work is on the road to Manley Hot Springs, there is a large yellow warning sign erected by the State Highway Department which says: No Warning Signs Ahead!
Springtime is always special in Alaska. An outdoor active wear store was seen sporting a sign advertising ” Swimsuits and Ice Grippers”. Huh?!
