'He belongs to Alaska': Adventurer, wilderness conservationist Ken Leghorn dies at 62 - Juneau Empire (subscription)

Monday, May 01, 2017

Leghorn had previously served on the board at Audubon Alaska, a conservation nonprofit based in Anchorage, and Audubon planned an event in May where Leghorn would blog about the birds he was watching from home.Now that Leghorn is gone, Audubon is inviting others to record the birds they see, in honor of Leghorn.The fact that he was so active and involved in his final months wasn’t lost on Warner. The past few months weren’t easy, but she made sure to visit a few times and call her father often. She ensured him that the lessons he taught her, such as being sure to treat others with kindness and understanding, had stuck with her.Seeing Leghorn’s legacy continue through his vast collection of friends has also stuck with Warner.“You’ll always have those connections and you’ll always have those people who can be there with you or for you,” Warner said.Those people have come out in droves in recent weeks, many of them telling stories akin to Skaggs’ anecdote from that sailboat two decades ago. Those connections, more like family than friends, were happy to be part of his adventures,

Airport shooter had mental health problems but no apparent ties to terrorism - Miami Herald

Monday, January 09, 2017

Islamic State or any other terrorist organization.Instead, a profile has emerged of a mentally disturbed military veteran who boarded a plane on a one-way Delta ticket from Anchorage via Minneapolis to Fort Lauderdale to take deadly aim at fellow travelers in a baggage claim area. Investigators have no idea why he chose Fort Lauderdale as his target.So far, Santiago seems to differ significantly from the “lone wolf” portrait of Omar Mateen, the Orlando nightclub shooter who was beset with his own volatile mix of mental and personal issues. Mateen, a 29-year-old Fort Pierce security guard, was apparently self-radicalized. He proclaimed an affinity for Islamic extremists in June while he killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in the nation’s worst mass shooting. But Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, who is working with the FBI on the airport shooting, pointed to mental health problems rather than to any terrorist connection in evaluating what set off Santiago.“Something has to change,” Israel said Sunday on Channel 10 News’ This Week in South Florida. “People who are suffering from mental illness should not be allowed, in my opinion, to purchase or have firearms at any time.”Santiago, charged on Saturday with the killings, is scheduled to appear in Fort Lauderdale federal court on Monday. The Army veteran, who investigators say planned and carried out the attack on his own, faces a potential death penalty or life imprisonment if convicted.In the airport shooting, Santiago used a handgun that he retrieved from Anchorage police last month. Officers confiscated it in November while he underwent a psychiatric evaluation. The FBI had referred Santiago to Anchorage authorities after he told them he was being

Monday, December 12, 2016

Dec. 8,  with NTSB investigators. She said the plane had been repaired recently but did not provide details.She said her husband’s body will be flown to Anchorage before being returned to Fairbanks.Before entering the Legislature, Kelly was president and CEO of the GVEA electric utility for 17 years, retiring in 2000. He had been with GVEA, the electric utility cooperative serving the Fairbanks region, for 33 years.A News-Miner campaign story from 2010 stated Kelly earned his multiengine and Airline Transport Pilot ratings after retiring from GVEA and he spent two years flying for Tanana Air Service before deciding to run for state House.He was a member of the University of Alaska Board of Regents from 1991-99, serving two years as board president.Kelly grew up in Fairbanks and graduated from Monroe Catholic Jr./Sr. High School and the University of Alaska, where he majored in business management, according to a biography on the website of the Republican Party of Alaska posted during Kelly’s time in the Legislature. The biography notes he had received the Business Leader of the Year Award from the UAF Associated Students of Business and was recognized as Distinguished Alum by the Alumni Association.Kelly served on numerous boards in Fairbanks over the years, including the board of the Fairbanks Memorial Hospital Foundation and the University of Alaska Foundation. He was a past chairman of the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce board of directors.In the Legislature, Kelly was as a strong personality. He gained much attention for his effort to phase out pension-style retirements for public employees, something that attracted fierce opposition from organized labor, which targeted him for defeat. He lost to Democrat Bob Miller in November 2010.News of Kelly’s death spread quickly across Fairbanks on Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 7, leaving many of the well-liked legislator’s friends and acquaintances stunned and saddened.Many of those were in attendance of the annual Boy Scouts of America Distinguished Citizens Award Banquet at the Westmark Hotel, which Mike Kelly was planning to attend. The news spread in hushed whispers through the banquet hall to avoid casting a cloud over the annual fundraiser for an organization Kelly had b

After two years of working in Cedar Rapids, Kyle got his taxidermy license and took a job in Alaska.“He left everyone and everything in Iowa to pursue his dreams in Alaska,” Longerbeam said.James Longerbeam said his brother was also a licensed pilot, owned a couple of planes, worked as a pilot and hunting guide and did other jobs, such as carpentry and concrete work.
