Few details are available about Sunday’s 3 am drive-by shooting in Anchorage near 47th Avenue and Arctic Blvd. An Anchorage party bus with 17 people inside was shot 10 times by at least four different guns. Bullets entered through the back window and the body of the 28-passenger vehicle. No one was injured.

Chilkoot Pass

Chilkoot Pass

This week’s Outdoor Explorer comes to you from the Chilkoot Trail, the infamous route used by Klondike gold rushers during the late 1800s. As you walk the trail, signs of that crazy gold rush period are evident, but even more impressive is how a century has erased much of the gold rush’s footprint. Host Charles Wohlforth and friends take on the 33-mile trail over five days of hiking.

KSKA: Thursday, July 24, at 2:00 and 9:00 p.m.

Legalizing Marijuana

Legalizing Marijuana

Alaska could follow in the footsteps of Colorado and Washington if voters choose to legalize marijuana in November. Ballot Measure 2 would tax and regulate the production, sale and use of marijuana in Alaska. Hear Kristina Woolston and Taylor Bickford debate what that means for the state in a debate hosted by the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce.

Overcoming Nicotine Addiction

Overcoming Nicotine Addiction

Seventy percent of all active nicotine users wish they had never started, and about half tried to quit at least once in the last year. The negative health implications of tobacco use are well documented, and the social acceptance of the practice is waning. Despite the awareness and obvious reasons to quit, most who try find it an exceedingly difficult proposition that often ends in failure. Join Line One host Prentiss Pemberton and guest clinical psyclologist Dr. Ron Ohlson as they discuss the psychological challenges of overcoming nicotine addiction.

KSKA: Monday, July 21, at 2:00 and 9:00 p.m.

McKinley Disasters

McKinley Disasters

In 1967 the Wilcox Expedition attacked Mount McKinley with 12 young men. Only five came back alive. The disaster was the worst in the history of the mountain, and changed many lives and the way people thought about climbing it. Two authors have recently released books on the event, and both join us on the show to rehash what they remember from the deadly event.
