Unalaska's boys basketball (14-4) team came up short at state. The Raiders entered the state tournament ranked No. 1.

Unalaska's girls' basketball team (1-6) expected to host Sand Point over the weekend.

But when the Eagles canceled their trip Friday morning – just hours before the game – the home contests were thrown into doubt.

After some quick legwork, the Unalaska City School District found another opponent to fly out and compete.

King Cove's basketball (10-0) team thought Jan. 25 was going to be a normal Friday. Players expected to have the weekend off. But a phone call around 9 a.m. changed that.

The Aleutians East Borough plans to join the legal battle over a land exchange that would allow construction of a controversial road between King Cove and Cold Bay.

In January, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke signed a land exchange agreement with the King Cove Corporation that would allow for a road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge.

The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued another injured mariner, marking the seventh medevac of the winter fishing session.

Officials say the F/V Golden Alaska was fishing 60 miles northeast of Cold Bay on Tuesday, when a fisherman reported suffering from stroke symptoms.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew was sent to hoist the 44-year-old man from the vessel, before he was transported to Cold Bay and then Anchorage for emergency medical care.

The Coast Guard also staged a rescue in King Cove on Tuesday, after a 58-year-old man fell off a ladder and injured his spine.
