Cordova is out of shovels but officials arranged with a Canadian company for an order of large, scoop-type shovels capable of moving a cubic foot of snow at a time. Why from Canada?

APD named the bar servers who got busted for over serving. They swept 26 bars in the operation. They’re actually expanding the program. The next two rounds will include bar/restaurants and package stores. That means they can bust YOU if they think you had too much wine to drink after that calamari appetizer.

Chelsea Handler has cut back on her drinking. And now not even SHE thinks she's funny. That’s what we call a moment of clarity.
