A Tlingit Indian who spent a year of banishment on two remote Alaskan islands as part of a sentence for beating and robbing a pizza deliveryman was released from custody. "It's been a long time coming for this day," said Simon Roberts, 21. In addition to banishment, Roberts spent the last 26 months in state prison. Roberts was 16 in October 1993 when he struck the deliveryman on the head with an aluminum baseball bat during a robbery.

If at first you don't succeed in despoiling an environmental treasure, try, try again. That's apparently the White House motto for drilling in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The Senate should stop President Bush again, as it has for two years now. The Bush administration has been no friend to the Alaskan environment in recent months.

Thirty postal inspectors descended on a Hollywood hotel lobby Friday night to arrest an Alaska fugitive wanted in a mail-bombing case. Jim Bordenet, a Seattle-based spokesman for the postal inspectors, said agents interrupted the filming of a movie to arrest Craig Gustafson as he talked on a phone in the Roosevelt Hotel lobby. He said Gustafson was talking with postal inspectors in Anchorage, who kept him on the line for 30 minutes while the call was traced.

A man charged with slashing the throats of four children at their elementary school screamed, "Kill the young children! Kill yourself!" after a court appearance Tuesday. Jason Pritchard, 33, had refused to answer questions during his arraignment on four counts each of first-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault. All four children survived. "Are you Mr. Pritchard? Well, I'm told that you are," District Judge Natalie Finn said. "Do you understand what I'm saying? Do you hear me?"

A man who rambled and said "stuff that made no sense" stabbed four children at an elementary school Monday before he was subdued by police, authorities and witnesses said. The children were stabbed in the neck, police spokesman Ron McGee said. The victims were rushed to two hospitals. All four boys were in serious condition. The stabbings occurred shortly before classes were to begin at Mountain View Elementary School. McGee said about 20 pupils witnessed the attack.
