Police: Man greeted trick-or-treaters naked
ANCHORAGE - Trick-or-treaters got a surprise Tuesday night when they rang the doorbell of a man who greeted them without a costume or any other clothes, according to Anchorage police.
Anthony Frank Lewis, 49, was charged with two counts of indecent exposure after police responded to his home and he came to the door naked.
Police received two phone calls at about 9 p.m. reporting that a man without clothes had greeted trick-or-treaters.
Two patrol officers knocked on Lawrence's door. Police say Lawrence opened the door naked with a bowl of candy in his hands. Police said Lawrence tried to slam the door shut but the officers blocked the door and arrested him.
He was booked at an Anchorage jail and released on $5,000 bail.
Chinese discuss natural gas imports
FAIRBANKS - A Chinese delegation visited Alaska today to explore the prospect of importing North Slope liquefied natural gas. "Alaska has always gone to the market. It's not often the market comes to us," said Bill Walker of the Alaska Gasline Port Authority.
The eight-member delegation will be in Alaska for four days. Among those in the Chinese delegation is the third-ranking official in the Chinese national power corporation. He is also head of the corporation's liquefied natural gas study group.
The port authority is promoting the split of the proposed North Slope gas line into two parts. One arm would go east from Delta Junction to Canada along the Alaska Highway and hook up with the Canadian pipeline system into the Lower 48. The other spur would go to Valdez for liquefaction and export to the Asian market and perhaps for shipment to the West Coast.
