An Unalaska man was arrested Monday for making threats against two people and "the occupants of a local organization," according to a statement from the Department of Public Safety.

Acting Police Chief Jennifer Shockley said the arrest is unconnected to a July incident in which two Unalaska teenagers allegedly threatened another teen with a handgun.

An Illinois man hired as Unalaska's fire chief last year has been sentenced to 36 years in prison.

David "D.J." Dunn was convicted of drugging and raping a subordinate at his going-away party last spring — days before he was scheduled to leave his job as a Savoy, Illinois first responder and move to the island.

City officials fired the 44-year-old after his arrest, but he was briefly on Unalaska's payroll.

The Unalaska post office is flying a new American flag, just days after its original red, white, and blue banner was stolen.

Postmaster Jamesa Marino-Tickle said the replacement was hoisted Friday, thanks to a donation from Mayor Frank Kelty.

"We've had so much positive feedback and support from the community," she said, in response to the theft.
