About 1 in 4 jobs in Alaska and almost $2.6 billion in annual income are dependent on a clean environment and a healthy ecosystem, according to a study released by the Alaska Conservation Foundation. It said about 55,000 jobs, including those in commercial and sport fishing, tourism, recreation and hunting, depend on an unspoiled environment--more than twice those in the petroleum, mining and construction industries.

In the two weeks since the tale of his gritty four-day vigil along a freeway median drew national attention, hit-and-run survivor Juan Francisco Camacho remains bewildered over the outpouring of public sympathy in cards, letters, checks and offers of employment, from Alaska to North Carolina.
