Pennsylvania men Craig Christy and Shawn Christy will be held by authorities until they can be sent to Alaska for harassing Sarah Palin and her family. The dynamic duo was arrested after being indicted by a grand jury. They went from level creepy to truly threatening. Maybe they can share a padded cell.
The feds corrected flaws in environmental work done ahead of a 2008 lease sale in the Chukchi Sea that should speed up the permitting process for exploration. Of course environmentalists are crying and ready to sue to stop any OCS drilling in the Arctic. Our senators better get it in gear and get our share from the feds!

A Tennessee man had to be airlifted from the site of the BUS that mook from “Into the Wild” died in. Philip Brian Shoup couldn’t cross the Teklanika River. His hiking companions got help in Healy.

Menard had no comment…YET!
