Aniak backs off demand to remove all troopers

The Aniak Traditional Council is stepping back from a request that the State pull Troopers out of the mostly native village.  Last month the tribe accused Troopers of harassing locals, and demanded them removed from the Kuskokwim River community of 500.  Council Chief Wayne Morgan says the tribe will tolerate the four Troopers posted in their village, but is looking at other law enforcement options, including hiring its own safety officers.
