Judicial independence was a top theme of the State of the Judiciary address today. Plus: Without ferry service, it’s a struggle to get goods in … and out of town. And, the only asset the oil company BP isn’t selling at it prepares to leave the state is a conference center in midtown Anchorage that provides free meeting space to non-profit organizations.

Reports tonight from:

  • Andrew Kitchenman, Matt Miller, Jacob Resneck and Adelyn Baxter in Juneau
  • Liz Ruskin in Washington D.C.
  • Tegan Hanlon and Zachariah Hughes in Anchorage
  • Emily Hofstaedter in Nome
  • Ari Snider in Sitka
