Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The male flight attendant was awesome. Didn't catch his name but he was super funny, witty and charming. The female flight attendant was equally wonderful. Just a wonderful crew. A great flight home after a perfect weekend getaway with a good friend who really needed it."
Cons: "Not much, really. There wasn't a sink in the lavatory on that particular aircraft, I guess due to size or some tradeoff consideration. There was antiseptic lotion though. Not a huge deal. I'm always not too crazy about how coach airline seats are designed, so nothing great there either but that's par for the industry so I can't single Alaska out. It was pretty solid all around. I really like Alaska in general. Somehow my seat selection for my initial flight from Portland, OR to Oakland, CA got clobbered and I got reassigned to the last row and couldn't recline my seat back much at all, which was annoying seeing as I purchased me and my buddy's seats way in advance. I put some time and effort selecting two aisle seats next to each other so that we could shoot the breeze on the flight down which didn't get to happen, and his seat selection remainded intact somehow even though I was the one that bought the tickets, but I've already lodged a complaint about that so I shouldn't really go into that here. The flight back from Sacramento was tip top actually, so really no complaints. 9.5 out of 10."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "Comfier seats, more leg room"

Cons: "I booked this flight from Kayak with check in luggage, then when I was in the airport I paid 60 dollars for mu check in luggages... why?"

Cons: "It seemed as if the pilot didn’t know what he was doing Made us vomit"

Pros: "Great crew with a excellent personalities, nice clean plane, and just great service all around!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Selection of entertainment on a BYO-device was good, especially in the movies category"
Cons: "Weather-related delay is certainly not Alaska’s fault, but the 10-minutes waiting for a gate after landing was excruciating after such a long delay in the first place"

Pros: "Crew is always amazing and friendly on Alaska."
Cons: "There were no movie devices for some reason on the flight"

Cons: "More room and more padding."

Pros: "Plane was new - excellent entertainment system w a lot of movies to choose from; very nice staff; departed early; arrived early; got our bags within minutes of getting off plane. Probably one of the best flight experiences we have had."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was excellent! If there was something they could improve upon. It would be either improving the quality of the earphones or enable passengers to use their Bluetooth earphones."

Pros: "Love kayak my first time using it will use it again"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff is always super nice."
Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."

Pros: "It was a night flight, so it was pretty quiet."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Couldn't sleep."

Pros: "Awesome !"

Pros: "I'd like adequate leg room with the ticket already purchased. I'll need at least one bag. why am I paying again for bags? Food, a decent meal without being charged even more. seriously? I already bought a ticket, stop with the nickel and diming already."

Pros: "Loved that we arrived early and were provided delightful snacks and complimentary drinks."

Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"

Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."

Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "Going through TSA was horrible!! Honolulu airport definitely needs more help to get people through the lines. We are both in our 70's and had to wait way to long of time to get through security!!!"
Cons: "The flight was good but when we landed at Sea-Tac airport, we had to wait 1 hour and 50 minutes to get to our gate!!! It was 2 hours before we got off the plane. We missed our Sea-Tac shuttle to take us to Oak Harbor and had to reschedule. We just made the next one and it cost us to reschedule. Thank goodness they had room for us on the next shuttle!!! Not very happy!!! It was no fault of the Alaska pilots or crew but the management of the airlines!!"

Cons: "45 minute delay due to fog"

Pros: "More legroom in coach than most airlines. Friendly staff."

Pros: "Plane was on time and crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "I would of liked something else than crackers"

Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"

Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"

Pros: "Punctuality and kindness off employees."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly and accommodating crew"
Cons: "Wish you flew from Chicago!"

Pros: "Efficient predictable smooth"

Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"

Pros: "Exceptional! Truly enjoyed captain's jovial introduction at beginning of flight. Professional and capable crew."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Flight was more comfortable than some other flights I have been on, and the ride was smooth. I also like that we get to pick our seats when we buy the tickets instead of trying to find a seat once we are boarding."
Cons: "Once we started to board our plane about half the passengers got on the then the boarding stopped due to being grounded by the weather. Once that was lifted we finished boarding but still had to wait for our pilots to change planes. We sat in our seats for two hours before we even moved from our gate."

Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."

Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."

Cons: "Baggage crew was so careless in loading bags onto plane. There were two bags and a car seat that were thrown and missed the conveyer belt and fell off the side."

Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."

Pros: "In my first flight with Alaska everything was excellent."

Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."

Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"

Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."

Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."

Pros: "It was decent"

Pros: "I liked the hospitality and maintenance of timings"
Cons: "Snack given along with juice. It may be replaced by peanuts."

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Need free movies"

Pros: "I loved the humor of the hostess. I was originally booked on a later flight but the kind and helpful staff got me a earlier flight that got me home much sooner"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. Excellent customer Service at the airport as well."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and the plane was not crowded."
Cons: "Wheelchair for my mom was not at the gate in Atlanta, she had to walk and we had to still check immigration, customs and reroute our luggage."

Cons: "No ear plugs in my amenity kit??"

Cons: "Way too cramped"

Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "Boarding should be more organized"

Pros: "Courteous crew."

Pros: "New plane with good features. I was very comfortable."

Pros: "Crew was incredibly friendly"
Cons: "Wifi was not working on this flight"

Cons: "It made no sense to board an hour and a half before takeoff."

Pros: "Flying first class was wonderful. Great crew. Good food."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Timing"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly for the most part. There seems to be a chance in the way they interact with customers. It's noticeable. The food still is not bad, not great. Drink selection was pretty extensive and impressive. Free wifi for messaging apps is great."
Cons: "Electrical plug is right at your knee level. Bread is rock hard an inedible. Plane felt very dry compared to other Delta planes. Would be good to know when the Wifi will be off (as it is off as we "approach the North Pole"). I wish we didn't have to repack bags that are over 52lb."

Pros: "Free messaging during flight was REALLY nice!!! Smooth flight, early arrival, good coffee, variety of drinks, entertainment system worked very well and fast."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was not comfortable, also I think my seat was broken as any time I leaned forward it returned to upright position. Food was good but need more snack for a long haul flight. Needed more drink offers between meals."

Cons: "Very late and boarded too long before leaving the gate."

Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. I also liked that the captain came on and updated us on arrival, turbulence, weather, etc."

Cons: "Really rough landing"

Pros: "We flew Delta from Rome to Atlanta. Everyone was very accommodating and we had no problem with our tickets"

Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."

Cons: "Food."

Cons: "Crew wasn’t very friendly"

Cons: "The seat I was assigned did NOT recline !!! I have neck and back problems and I was in so much pain. You need to clearly indicate when a seat does not recline ( as in exit row seats, which are clearly indicated)."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew was organized and made us all laugh, and had a great personality."
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average."

Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."

Pros: "the seats were ok"
Cons: "was little late"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Customer service over the phone is the worst. 30 minutes for them to pick up and then get transferred to a very rude representative."

Pros: "On time with no drama"

Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."

Cons: "They delayed the flight for 11 hours and did let anyone know until after 4 hours of waiting and then the gate number for the new flight was wrong"

Pros: "New schedule"
Cons: "Missed connection die to delay by lightning. Rescefuled and put us up overnite but had comfort tickets and had to fly coach and seated separately."

Cons: "Multiple delays in Atlanta"

Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."

Pros: "On-time"
Cons: "No entertainment, no power outlets, no food, crappy overhead bins"

Pros: "Service, arrangement, duration, convenience , organized flight."
Cons: "I like everything about it. Thank you."

Pros: "On time, quick flight, nice people."
Cons: "It was freezing cold."

Pros: "The flight was fine, attendants we're good, entertainment options are great."
Cons: "Boarding. It was probably the worst I've seen. A shared intercom system between two gates (b7 and b7a), boarding flights around the same time and our flight beginning portions of pre boarding with no announcements caused mass confusion. Passengers lining up to go before they should, bumping into each other, no info or corrections over the intercom. The gate agent yelling at people to move aside. Overall terrible gate agents and terrible set up. Flight crew was great though."

Pros: "Left on time... Arrived 10 mins early. comfy plane. Pleasant help."

Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"

Pros: "The crew was very kind & accomodating. There were plenty of great current TV shows & movies. The seats were pretty comfortable, above average. I loved that they had roasted salted almonds as one of the 5 snack options."
Cons: "I had earbuds but the little girl next to me did not. I loaned her a pair of mine but I expected the flight attendants to offer them but they didn't."

Pros: "Never ever get economy fare! Getting a seat at he gate is a nightmare!"
Cons: "Seating assignment process. Length of time to talk to anyone at the gate. Pregnancy priority seating is impossible."

Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "1. 1.5 hour delay on a 70-degree, sunny day. 2. all of the outlets in the gate area to charge devices during the delay -- and 90% of them didn't work!!!! It's almost better not to design new seating with outlets between seats, when the outlets don't work -- neither did the ones on the walls. People were lined up for the ONE wall outlet that did work."

Pros: "Love Delta and their attention to customer service. They make you feel overall that they value you as a customer."
Cons: "My seat was broken and when the seat in front of me reclined, it was very uncomfortable. I was just thankful it was an 1.5 hour flight and we didn't get stuck on the runway in NYC like my last two flghts."

Pros: "Delta does a great job overall. We used free skymiles from Amex and it was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Not enough leg room! BS!"

Cons: "No electronic check-in; No seat assignment; will be avoiding flying Delta"

Pros: "I love the crew! They are so kind and helpful. Feel like been friends forever. And they have the hardest jobs in the world! Seats are comfortable love the Westin bedding and drink selection"
Cons: "They ran out of Port wine :("

Pros: "The new Delta planes have great leg room for tall people even in coach."

Cons: "There were many empty seats, and when I moved from a cramped seat to a fully open row, the attendant rudely and humiliatingly admonished me for moving to a comfort+ from my "preferred" seat. It was unprofessional and extremely uncalled for. The seats were completely empty and there was no reason for him to admonish me loudly and rudely. I suffer from severe general anxiety disorder, fur which I take appropriate medications, but this incident caused an anxiety attack that lasted through the rest of the flight. Extremely disturbing that crew would behave so rudely and insensitively to anyone."

Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"

Cons: "We did not board at the scheduled time, although I believe we arrived on time. The crew was demeaning and singled out individuals who were causing the aircraft to not move. It was in a very pretentious manner, not like southwest personnel who have similar antics but with a playful tone. The plane is a small one where bags don't fit overhead and many head bumps occur. We arrived fine which mean the flight was successful but it was not very enjoyable."

Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."

Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "-"

"I like it because everything looks good"

Pros: "I like American Airlines in general."
Cons: "I noticed there was a disagreement/issue between a passenger and the aircrew, but it was handled quickly when the passenger just left. I understand there are some issues sometimes, but I noticed attitude from three of the flight attendants during the flight. There were three teens in the back that kept rambling about how all planes have bombs, everyone there was turbulence we could go into a spiral, the plane engines could blow up, etc. It was clearly making passengers uncomfortable because they kept turning around and one lady even yelled at them. I'm honestly shocked the flight crew never said anything to them. I wasn't too worried, except that they ruined any chance to get some rest."

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "American crew and gate agents are awesome!!!!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Some social distance inside the plain would’ve great"

Pros: "Crew was good n seat could have been bigger."
Cons: "Landing late to Chicago almost cost me my connection so I was stressed and could not eat due to limited time in between. The airline didn't notify us of being late to Chicago until I was on plane. We were told it was on time. Very disappointing.."

Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "Could have not delayed the flight 3 times."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and nice as always!"
Cons: "More room in the seat but I know that’s unrealistic."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "One attendant looked and acted,like she had just gotten up after a rough night. Never smiled, watched people put jackets and even a fast food bag in the overheads without ever saying a word."

Pros: "Yrs"
Cons: "Dunno"

Pros: "nice entertainment when you use the AA app."
Cons: "Unbelievable turbulent and bumpy ride. Not AA's fault but the question was "how was the trip?" It was a white-knuckle ride."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "On time with easy boarding and very helpful staff."

Pros: "They have Wow Bao in the airport."
Cons: "Being allowed to fly on the plane."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crappy food, not even outlets for laptop chargers for those who need to work during a 5-hr flight. Barely stacks up to delta or JetBlue, won’t be flying American again anytime soon."

Pros: "This will be my last flight on American. The seats are so narrow that I had a very uncomfortable flight, and I am a "normal size". I can imagine how uncomfortable larger people were."
Cons: "The seats are too narrow with little leg room."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, plane was old and dirty in need of maintenance. We had Hard landing and had to unboard onto a people mover. Thankful it was a short flight."

Cons: "I waited over 45 minutes for luggage to even begin to unload. Absolutely ridiculous"

Pros: "Good food onboard and very comfortable seats"
Cons: "American Airlines postponed my flight for 12 hours without a concrete explanation. After complaining they offered for us to travel with Latam but my luggage wasn’t transferred to the other flight. I arrived more than 12 hours ago and I’m still waiting to hear from them."

Cons: "Late cancellation. We still haven’t departed Dayton."

Cons: "Noting all was great"

Pros: "Informed in cell phone about flight delays."
Cons: "Delayed flight. I was informed of the three-timed delays. Eventually, the flight met the 2nd one."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."

Cons: "Canceled flight. Moved us to another flight IN ANOTHER CITY. Changed our second reschedule flight gate from one end of the airport to the other. NONE of the walkways worked. Total unorganized mess - this airline is run like idiots are running it! Very challenging as I have CHF."

Cons: "No longer free entries on board like before"

Pros: "Nothing, they’re awful."
Cons: "American Airlines failed to provide the service we paid for: a flight that arrived home in the morning, so that we could get to work. We had to use vacation days we did not have to spare."

Pros: "Boarding was okay, flight was on time departing and arriving."
Cons: "No USB chargers in the seats for SEA-MIA segment of trip, but they had it for short hour flight from MIA-SJU? Long haul flights need the USB outlets!!"

Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Would you like a beverage? Not unless you asked and that was only if you could get her attention. Truly felt like a second class citizen in this fight"

Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"

Pros: "Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, God food, pleasant flight."

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding is terrible at DCA for commuter flights. You get on a bus packed in like sardines and the stand there for 15 minutes."

Cons: "Missed connecting flight because they left late out of our origin location. We were only 2 min late but they closed the door eventhough they knew the previous flight had landed and we were on our way to the flight."

Pros: "It got me there."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and switched gates 3 times. I'm pretty sure they swapped planes as there wasn't any in flight entertainment. Flight overall was fine but unhappy with service and updates at airport."

Pros: "Arrived early and flight wasn't packed."

Pros: "The flight was early morning so the plane was basically empty. And the flight was short due to short distance and tail winds. Crew is always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane seats are EXTREMELY cramped. We were early but had to sit for 15 minutes waiting for the plane in our spot to leave."

Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."

Pros: "Airline upgrades were great!"

Cons: "Service was great but seating was cramped and uncomfortable, entertainment system was massively out of date, and no power outlets were available. Nickel and diming for extra (proper?) legroom was not appreciated."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The flight left late but the delay was made up for in the air."

Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "Everyone that worked for AA was so friendly and nice. My flight was denied for about 3 hours and I arrived in Miami so late that I lost a day if vacation. I called AA to tell them and was told I could have been compensated for the trouble but I had to call the same day as flight (mind you I landed in Miami at almost 9pm and was too tired to call them.) so I lost any compensation."

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 15 min"


Pros: "Everyone was amazing. Helpful. Kind professional"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful on the plain. There was a bit more room on the next flight than the one from Dayton to Charlotte"
Cons: "The isle was way too narrow People were bumping into me as they went down the isle and I had to carry my cane and carry on bag . I could not understand to pilot when he spoke at all."

Pros: "The crew was top notch. Friendly engaging"
Cons: "I'm not sure but yet again we had to sit for 30 mins before taxing to the terminal."

Senator Stevens

The Ted Stevens page needs some work. He's been getting hammered by a lot of issues recently and the only people that are updating his page are his detractors. I'm not a big fan of him right now either, but it would be nice if people who knew more about his other politics would counterbalance some of the criticism Slarson 07:33, 31 August 2006 (UTC)[]

Typing mistake

I am currently working on the German translation of the Copper River article. In the description it is talking about a "wide marshly plain". I could not find marshly in a dictionary and the two simular words 'harshly' and 'marshy' make both sence. Could you please verify this information? Thanks, --Julian Maximilian 21:44, 19 March 2006 (UTC)[]

It can't be harshly, since that's an adverb and adverbs don't modify nouns. It's "marshy"; I've fixed it. —Zero Gravitas 22:13, 19 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Aleut Restitution Act of 1988

Hi, all. I stumbled across a red link in the page Aleut, and did some research on the Aleut Restitution Act of 1988. What you see there is the product of an hour's worth of research. However, the page may benefit from multiple editors' revisions, so it would be nice if that page were put up for collaboration.
On the other hand, would that page even fall under this WikiProject? Thanks Kareeser|Talk! 05:23, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
P.S. That particular page is in dire need of a category, as I am horrendous at sifting through category lists...[]

If it's more than tangentially related to Alaska (as this certainly is) it definitely qualifies. Thanks for starting the article! —Zero Gravitas 07:13, 3 March 2006 (UTC)[]
Thanks for the cricial fixes to the article, ZeroGravitas! I had not realized my mistake in calling the Aleuts "Aleutians" until you fixed my error, and until then, I did not know that I could have realized simply by searching "Aleutian" on Wikipedia. Thanks again! Kareeser|Talk! 14:27, 3 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team cooperation

Hello. I'm a member of the Version 1.0 Editorial Team, which is looking to identify quality articles in Wikipedia for future publication on CD or paper. We recently began assessing articles using these criteria, and we are are asking for your help. As you are most aware of the issues surrounding your focus area, we are wondering if you could provide us with a list of the articles that fall within the scope of your WikiProject, and that are either featured, A-class, B-class, or Good articles, with no POV or copyright problems. Do you have any recommendations? If you do, please post your suggestions at the listing of all active Places WikiProjects, and if you have any questions, ask me in the Work Via WikiProjects talk page or directly in my talk page.

Image request

Soemone requested a map of the Inside Passage, which I think is a good idea. It would be great if anyone has talents in that direction or if there is GFDL-compatible map available. Also, do others think it to be a good idea to have a "Things to do" on the main project page? Luigizanasi 17:16, 25 March 2006 (UTC)[]

Arctic Region Supercomputing Center

naming for the alaska route

it seems ADOT calls the alaska state highway X as Alaska Route X. Would anyone object if i change the article names to match this (from Alaska State Highway 10 to Alaska Route 10? If i'm misktan, then I'm sorry. atanamir 01:56, 8 April 2006 (UTC)[]

Do you have a source for this reference? —akghettotalk 09:05, 8 April 2006 (UTC)[]
[1] "Alaska Route Numbers" at the top, and "alaska route 1" is referred to in [2]atanamir 09:14, 8 April 2006 (UTC)[]
Does anyone mind? If not, i'll go ahead with the moves / renaming. atanamir 09:11, 9 April 2006 (UTC)[]

Indeed, page 68 of the latter pdf document reads "The George Parks Highway (Alaska Route 1) parallels the Susitna River on the east en route to connecting Anchorage and Fairbanks". Go for it. This will be a small task. — Apr. 10, '06

done. atanamir 05:30, 10 April 2006 (UTC)[]
You missed a few references within the text. I've fixed the ones on my watchlist (Alaska Highway, Klondike Highway and Top of the World Highway) but you might want to go back & do a search on the others to make sure you haven't missed any of the references to "Alaska State Highway".

ah, thanks for reminding me. I forgot to look for instances of state highway in those pages. I just went through and they all should be gone. atanamir 05:43, 10 April 2006 (UTC)[]


I have redesigned the alaska route shields as per [3] on the ADOT site. The font orgiinally on the PNGs was wrong; the PDF shows a heavier weight font being used (FHWA Series EM), which i have used in the new SVG shields. atanamir 09:36, 8 April 2006 (UTC)[]

  • For numbers greater than 9, though, the EM font is too wide; I have kept the font used previously in the PNGs. atanamir 09:53, 8 April 2006 (UTC)[]
Huh. I'm pretty sure that in real life I've only seen the narrow font, as here or here; DOT/PF must've changed it. —Zero Gravitas 16:58, 8 April 2006 (UTC)[]

Would you rather the shields be in the skinnny font then? It deosn't really matter to me. atanamir 20:59, 8 April 2006 (UTC)[]
No, no, whatever they're using right now is clearly the right one to use; I just didn't know they'd changed. —Zero Gravitas 21:22, 8 April 2006 (UTC)[]

Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Alaska

Many articles covered by this WikiProject lack photographs. As part of a subcategorization of the requested photos category, there is now a category for Alaska articles needing photos - to use it, just add {{reqphotoin|Alaska}} to the article's talk page. I have only added a few articles to the category so far, but it would be an easy way to make an extensive list Alaska-related articles lacking photos. I hope you find it useful!

Project tag

(moved from the template talk page after belatedly realizing that probably only AKGhetto and I would see it there)

Lately I've started noticing how big and obtrusive the Alaska box is, compared to other WikiProject tags with about the same amount of stuff in them. What if it were a bit smaller, to eat up the blank space, like so:

Any thoughts on this, or am I the only one who cares? (as I suspect is likely!) —Zero Gravitas 18:28, 13 June 2006 (UTC)[]

Pioneer Peak photos?

I just created an article on Pioneer Peak, but it's sadly unillustrated. I'm not easily able to get out to Mat-Su to photograph it, but maybe someone here is? Or knows where sufficiently free pictures are? It just isn't right not to have a picture of Pioneer Peak... —Zero Gravitas 03:12, 15 June 2006 (UTC)[]

Oops, I missed the one in the Palmer article, but one that's just the mountain itself would be better... —Zero Gravitas 03:22, 15 June 2006 (UTC)[]

History buff needed

Please check out List of current and former capital cities in the United States and make sure that Alaska's capital cities are listed accurately.

Nominate articles for Portal:United States

I've worked for the past month to update Portal:United States and keep it better maintained. Though, I think the portal would be even better with broader participation. One way to do that is instead of choosing the "selected article" myself each week, if others would nominate articles and help make decisions. (same goes for pictures, though these are stocked up through July 29) If there is anything related to Alaska (or anything else related to the U.S. - culture, music, literature, geography, history, politics, ...), please nominate. I'd also like people to weigh in on the nominations and help select what should be featured. Thanks. --Aude (talkcontribs) 23:16, 28 June 2006 (UTC)[]

New "People from [city]" Categories

Hello, everybody. I am the bozo who just recently created the five new subcategories in the "People from Alaska" category. I thought that some of you might want to know why they were created, and why they often have so few pages in them.

The majority of the states have "People from [state]" categories which have at least 200 entries, sometimes over 1,000. This is clearly an unworkably large number for anyone wishing to use the category for research purposes. In 8th grade in Rapid City, South Dakota, the social studies class asked us to write, over the course of the year, reports on two or three people who were or had been residents of the city. Because of that, I have reason to believe that they could be used and probably are used for research purposes. To make such research easier, I looked at the list of metropolitan statistical areas and basically entered in one new category for each metropolitan statistical area, and, in the case of Alaska, three others as well.

I know that many of these categories might well be, in the eyes of you who know more about the cities in question much better than I do, misnamed or otherwise faulty. I apologize for any mistakes I may have made along those lines, and I would welcome any corrections, including deletion, that any of the rest of you might choose to make.

I thought you all should know why these categories were created, and felt some degree of responsibility for letting your know. I wish you all the greatest good fortune in making the coverage of your state in Wikipedia of the greatest scope and quality possible, and I hope that I haven't annoyed too many of you by my recent actions. Badbilltucker 13:12, 29 June 2006 (UTC)[]

The Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau categories are pretty good ideas, at least in my view, and thanks for making them. They don't hurt, anyway. I've sorted a few bio articles into those categories but haven't systematically gone through all of them yet.
I'm curious about why you chose Homer and Bethel, though; they aren't the next largest cities, and I can't think of anyone notable from Bethel other than Evan Ramsey. —Zero Gravitas 17:23, 29 June 2006 (UTC)[]

Contributed to Mat-Su College

I just added a bit to the Mat-Su College article. It's my first contribution so I hope I didn't seriously screw anything up. I've taken a number of classes there ('fore I transfer out to a real college). I'll try to get a picture up of the place (and perhaps each building?) sometime next week. Please check it and let me know if there's anything I need to do different/change/add/remove/etc. Thanks! --Talon Razor 22:20, 1 July 2006 (UTC)[]

British Columbia Coast - possible expansion to Pacific Northwest Coast

This more concerns Alaska than Washington, but please have a look at British Columbia Coast, which includes a directory-list of inlets/fjords, islands, rivers and so on. Obviously the boundaries are human creations, and the natural boundaries are more like from Cape Flattery to, er, at least Glacier Bay/Alsek River. If you think this would be useful to your Alaska Project let me know and I can work on expanding and renaming the page (it's linked quite a bit already, though....). Been bugging me for a while as an o-c kind of thing; have thought of expanding it to include Puget Sound, northern Olympic Peninsula, but if I do that then it's a propos to do it for the Panhandle, too...Skookum1 00:35, 23 July 2006 (UTC)[]

Diane E. Benson and Elizabeth Peratrovich

I started an article on Diane Benson (Tlingit playwright and candidate for US House of Representatives) in late August, I think, and it got nominated for deletion and voted on (7 people voting), and then deleted quite recently. I was still working on the article. I'm a little annoyed by this, and would like to know if anyone here also thinks that she was worth a Wikipedia article. The archive of the deletion discussion is here. If people think that she's worth an article, we need to ask for a deletion review. The whole thing seemed to go pretty quickly...I'm a little shocked at how fast it all happened (maybe two weeks or less?), and I wish I'd thought to mention the deletion nomination here while the discussion was going on. Now I've started an article on Elizabeth Peratrovich (about whom Benson wrote a play), but I'm finding I'm a little paranoid about whether somebody's just going to delete that, too, because it might not immediately fit the suggested guidelines for notability or biographies or whatnot. Deirdre 01:39, 25 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Deirdre, I second your objection to this deletion. I'm unable to determine why the article was deleted -- reading the AFD, there was nothing like a unanimous opinion, and no conclusion. I find it troubling that people would delete the article for a credible challenging candidate in the lead-up to an election. People come to Wikipedia to look up the candidates in a political contest, and it shouldn't be Wikipedia's policy to do favors for the incumbent. This is a repeated theme on Wikipedia talk:Candidates and elections, which was referenced by parties for and against the delete. If Benson loses the election and is never heard from again -- perhaps an AFD would have merit then. But during the election? That's worth contesting. It's also interesting to note that none of the four delete votes come from members of WikiProject Alaska who might be better able to judge the Notability in this case. There were an equal number of keep votes, and one of them came from a WikiProject Alaska member -- that's you, Deirdre. Had I known about this before, I would have voted "keep", and I would be happy to join you in requesting a review. -- Shunpiker 05:18, 25 October 2006 (UTC)[]
There was hardly a consensus for deletion, four to three by my count, and one person changed their vote from delete to neutral. Definitely a case for deletion review just on procedural grounds, and I would also support you just because she is a Tlingit playwright and including her helps fight systemic bias. But a better case needs to be made about her notability as a playwright. You might also want to contact User:James Crippen who is an authority on the Tlingit. Luigizanasi 05:36, 25 October 2006 (UTC)[]
Thanks--I've left a comment with James Crippen, asking him to weigh in on the deletion review. However, I couldn't find it on the review page; does this mean that I need to create it there, or did I just look in the wrong place?Deirdre 00:13, 26 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Okay, I figured it out. There is now a deletion review for Diane Benson, here. Please go comment. Deirdre 03:40, 26 October 2006 (UTC)[]

The deletion has been overturned. However, now it's up for deletion again, as a procedural matter. I'm confused. Deirdre 21:22, 31 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Project directory

Hello. The WikiProject Council has recently updated the Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory. This new directory includes a variety of categories and subcategories which will, with luck, potentially draw new members to the projects who are interested in those specific subjects. Please review the directory and make any changes to the entries for your project that you see fit. There is also a directory of portals, at User:B2T2/Portal, listing all the existing portals. Feel free to add any of them to the portals or comments section of your entries in the directory. The three columns regarding assessment, peer review, and collaboration are included in the directory for both the use of the projects themselves and for that of others. Having such departments will allow a project to more quickly and easily identify its most important articles and its articles in greatest need of improvement. If you have not already done so, please consider whether your project would benefit from having departments which deal in these matters. It is my hope that all the changes to the directory can be finished by the first of next month. Please feel free to make any changes you see fit to the entries for your project before then. If you should have any questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you. B2T2 18:36, 25 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Wikipedia Day Awards

Hello, all. It was initially my hope to try to have this done as part of Esperanza's proposal for an appreciation week to end on Wikipedia Day, January 15. However, several people have once again proposed the entirety of Esperanza for deletion, so that might not work. It was the intention of the Appreciation Week proposal to set aside a given time when the various individuals who have made significant, valuable contributions to the encyclopedia would be recognized and honored. I believe that, with some effort, this could still be done. My proposal is to, with luck, try to organize the various WikiProjects and other entities of wikipedia to take part in a larger celebrartion of its contributors to take place in January, probably beginning January 15, 2007. I have created yet another new subpage for myself (a weakness of mine, I'm afraid) at User talk:Badbilltucker/Appreciation Week where I would greatly appreciate any indications from the members of this project as to whether and how they might be willing and/or able to assist in recognizing the contributions of our editors. Thank you for your attention. Badbilltucker 21:58, 29 December 2006 (UTC)[]


Do Alaskans think of their cities as settlements? Well, check out Category:Settlements in Alaska that's as of today in your category hierarchy. I reverted it out for Kentucky, and I recommend all states do it as well. Kentucky uses "Subdivisions" and Massachusetts uses "Administrative divisions" (both reasonable). "Settlements" are for pioneer days, not for contemporary political subdivisions. Stevie is the man!Talk • Work 04:05, 13 January 2007 (UTC)[]

I'll try to remember to check Flickr -- there's a group there that goes every year to watch the eagles in Alaska, & there might be someone there who's got a photo of her who might be willing to allow the photo's use on Wikipedia. --Yksin 01:15, 31 March 2007 (UTC)[]

Project activity & organization

This project seems to be in something of a moribund state, at least in terms of project members discussing & coordinating with each other. I'm assuming -- or at least hoping -- that there are other people doing stuff to improve Alaska WP articles, but... what? where? how? Is anybody out there? What are people doing? How can we better keep in touch with each other, & the activities of this project?

By way of an introduction: I joined this project a couple months ago; lately I've been doing extensive work on articles relating to Alaska Natives. For example, I created Category:Indigenous languages of Alaska & made sure every language recognized by the Alaska Native Language Center was represented there, & that each of those articles had a language infobox; I created Category:Alaska Native regional corporations, added extensively to the four or so articles that already existed on them, & created articles for the rest, so that now there's an article for all 13 of the ANCSA corporations. Doing a lot of work re: ANCSA, actually. For details, see my user page.

Actually, I'm going to take the WP:BOLD thing seriously & create a subproject under WP:Project on Alaska Natives. And start keeping track of what I'm doing there, too. --Yksin 21:53, 30 March 2007 (UTC)[]

Update: Okay, I've created the Alaska Natives area as a subproject of the "Culture" division of WP:ALASKA. It can be found at Alaska Natives (talk). I've also created pages for all the divisions of the overall project & related talk pages if they weren't already there, & began some preliminary topical subheadings for them. Seems to me that people might be more attracted to the project, or doing stuff in various divisions of it, if the project divisions aren't mostly redlinked as they were previously. Hope this helps; I'll do more over the weekend. --Yksin 01:08, 31 March 2007 (UTC)[]

Eva McGown ?

Can somebody establish this person's importance? --AW 14:45, 5 June 2007 (UTC)[]

Not much beyond regional. She seems to have been a proactive person in her community but frankly not to have done anything anyone really cares about. -ĬŴΣĐĝё 07:44, 8 June 2007 (UTC)[]
I agree that her importance is as a regional figure. She is, however, an important character in the history of Fairbanks: An early resident, a local celebrity, and the subject of some national attention for her charitable work. The article needs some editing to make that more clear. -- Shunpiker 14:23, 8 June 2007 (UTC)[]
"Regional" does not equate to unimportant. If it did, then we could toss out probably about 85% of all articles about state legislators. Certainly Eva McGown has a great deal of important to Fairbanks and Alaska history. But yes, the article needs some work. I'll try to do it over my lunch. --Yksin 16:47, 8 June 2007 (UTC)[]

Proponents and opponents of Alaska statehood

The Proponents and Opponents of Alaska statehood categories have been nominated for deletion.

Template issues

Okay, a few things...

  • I made a bunch of userboxes for students and alumni of all Alaskan colleges a while back but didn't really say anything about it. Well, I'm telling you now. If you want one for your userpage, they are found at the listing of college related userboxes OR as subpages of my userbox page: User:L'Aquatique/Userboxes#Userboxes I've created. Have fun...
  • I made a navbox template for use on AMHS related articles. I put it at the bottom of the AMHS main page as well as all the individual ferry pages. My question is, should I put it at the bottom of port cities' pages too, since they are listed in the navbox?

Oh, by the way, about the color scheme... see the talk page for the template for my comments.

'Kay, that's all. Discuss amongst yourself... L'Aquatiquetalktome off! ( 26 Sept, 10:27pm) (yes, I am that stupid that I put the wrong date)

Nice work on the template. It will be a nice addition to vessel pages. I'm leaning towards the position of not including it in town pages. You don't see navboxes for airlines or buslines on town pages but since the AMHS is state run and such an important part of transportation in rural Alaska I might be swayed the other way. --Drew Lindow (talk) 10:45, 18 March 2008 (UTC)[]

  • This is one aspect of improving the quality control--and the tendency to leave stubs hanging--that our project needs to improve. I've been sort of a dilitante (can't spell that word, sorry), editing here and there, creating starter articles for people who've seemed like they were important, but I often don't know enough about the subject to really start on them. The grading process will be important, I think, to helping us identify which pages need the most work. Deirdre (talk) 11:43, 14 January 2008 (UTC)[]

Deletion problems

Hi, everyone, Ray Troll was deleted, a note placed on my page January 14 that it had been nominated for speedy deletion. Apparently the poster couldn't even wait for a full day, because the page is gone. I find this VERY annoying, and a problem that we've encountered in pages in progress before. I'm not quite sure how to avoid this; it seems to me that we need to keep a sharp eye out on our people stubs. Anybody else here want to help me develop the Alaska artists stubs? I'm going to have to recreate the page and make sure I include all the stuff that makes him notable. This is, to put it bluntly, a real pain in the posterior. Deirdre (talk) 10:46, 14 January 2008 (UTC)[]

Hi Deirdre, Do you have a copy of the Ray Troll article? The deletion comment says that it was speedily deleted for not asserting notability. If there was in fact an assertion of notability, then a speedy deletion was out of order. If there wasn't -- for better and worse, that's why they call it "speedy." I think it's a good practice assert a person's significance in the very first paragraph of a biographical stub -- to make it clear that the article is not just a promotional page for a less notable person. References are also very helpful in this regard. I found a bunch for "Ray Troll" by searching Google news, along with the interesting fact that he seems to have a fish named after him. Notable for sure. -- Shunpiker (talk) 14:21, 14 January 2008 (UTC)[]
No, but there should be one in the record somewhere. The problem is not so much that the stage at which the article was at failed to show notability, but that it was in progress and basically got deleted before it was done. In other words, I hadn't gotten around to demonstrating why he's worth talking about (a HUGE list of educational and fun books on prehistoric fish, for instance--he's popularized paleoichthyology--as well as having a species named after him). I'm a bit of an inclusive Wikipedian--we're not wasting paper here--and since the purpose of Wikipedia is to make the world's knowledge available on the web, free of charge, why the rush to delete? Deirdre (talk) 22:33, 14 February 2008 (UTC)[]
I have looked at the article, and I have to say that I agree with the deletion. The article made clear what Ray Troll has written and done, but it didn't make clear how that made him notable. Maybe he is notable enough for Wikipedia, I can't tell, but it didn't become clear from the article. If you can write an article that makes his notability clear (using for instance multiple coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject), you can be bold and do so. If you disagree with the deletion itself, you can request a deletion review. If you need help with that, you can leave a message on my talk page. AecisBrievenbus 23:52, 14 January 2008 (UTC)[]


The above linked image of the Alaska state seal is up for deletion on commons (discussion here).

New Barnstar!

So I was working on some barnstars (an excellent outlet for my graphic design creativity) and I discovered that ya'all have been using the barnstar I designed a lot, like for the featured Alaska picture template stuff. Anyway, I realized that, and I can say this because I designed it- it is horribly ugly. So I designed a new one, I hope you like: The Alaska Barnstar

Brower v. State

683 P.2d 290 (1984)

Ronald BROWER, Appellant, v. STATE of Alaska, Appellee.

No. 7816.

Court of Appeals of Alaska.

June 15, 1984.

*291 Charles R. Pengilly, Asst. Public Defender, Fairbanks, and Dana Fabe, Public Defender, Anchorage, for appellant.

Anne D. Carpeneti, Asst. Atty. Gen., Daniel W. Hickey, Chief Prosecutor and Norman C. Gorsuch, Atty. Gen., Juneau, for appellee.




Ronald Brower was convicted of attempted sexual assault in the first degree. AS 11.41.410; AS 11.31.100. He appeals, arguing that the method used to select the grand jury in his case violated his right to equal protection of the law under the state and federal constitutions. U.S. Const. amend. XIV; Alaska Const. art. 1, § 1. He also contends that numerous delays which occurred between his arrest and trial violated his right to a speedy trial under the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution and Alaska Criminal Rule 45. We affirm.

On February 22, 1981, Brower attempted to rape D.T. Brower, who was born on June 15, 1963, was seventeen years old at the time. He was initially prosecuted as a juvenile, AS 47.10.010, but the state obtained a waiver of juvenile jurisdiction from the superior court, AS 47.10.060. An indictment was subsequently returned, and Brower was convicted.

Brower argues that his grand jury was selected in violation of his rights under the equal protection clauses of the state and federal constitutions because of systematic exclusion of Alaska Natives. Brower was indicted by a grand jury convened in Fairbanks, which has a substantially smaller population of Alaska Natives than Barrow, where the offense occurred. He relies on Castaneda v. Partida, 430 U.S. 482, 97 S. Ct. 1272, 51 L. Ed. 2d 498 (1977). Partida, a Mexican-American, was indicted by a grand jury in Hidalgo County, Texas. The grand jury was selected through a "key man" procedure; jury commissioners, in effect, selected people they knew to serve on grand juries. Partida argued that his grand jury substantially underrepresented Mexican-Americans. The Supreme Court announced a three-part test for evaluating such a challenge:

Thus, in order to show that an equal protection violation has occurred in the context of grand jury selection, the defendant must show that the procedure employed resulted in substantial underrepresentation of his race or of the identifiable group to which he belongs. The first step is to establish that the group is one that is a recognizable, distinct class, singled out for different treatment under the laws, as written or as applied. Next, the degree of underrepresentation must be proved, by comparing the proportion of the group in the total population to the proportion called to serve as grand jurors, over a significant period of time. This method of proof, sometimes called the "rule of exclusion," has been held to be available as a method of proving discrimination in jury selection against a delineated class. Finally, as noted above, a selection procedure that is susceptible of abuse or is not racially neutral supports the presumption of discrimination raised by the statistical showing. Once the defendant has shown substantial underrepresentation of his group, he has made out a prima facie case of discriminatory purpose, and the burden then shifts to the State to rebut that case.

430 U.S. at 495-96, 97 S. Ct. at 1280, 51 L. Ed. 2d at 510-11 (citations omitted; footnote omitted).

Brower argues and the state concedes that Alaska Natives are a identifiable group. He then argues:

Alaska Natives comprise ... 76.8% of the total population of the North Slope Borough, where Barrow is located; Alaska Natives account for only ... 5.5% of the Fairbanks North Star Borough. As of 1970, 99.8% of the Native population of Barrow was Eskimo, while only 24.0% *292 of the Natives in Fairbanks were members of that sub-class. Assuming that the same ratios existed in 1980, these figures identify an even more radical disparity in racial composition between the communities in question: while approximately 77.6% of the population of the North Slope Borough is Eskimo, only 1.3% of the total population of the Fairbanks North Star Borough is Eskimo. Thus, although 76.8% of the community where this incident occurred is Native and 76.6% of that community is Eskimo, the community from which Mr. Brower's grand jury was selected is only 5.5% Native and 1.3% Eskimo.

It is clear that Brower has substantially misunderstood the requisites of a prima facie case under Castaneda. In order to establish underrepresentation of a significant group under Castaneda, a comparison must be made between the proportion of the allegedly disfavored group that exists in the population from which the grand jury is chosen and the proportion of that group ultimately selected to serve on grand juries. It is a substantial disparity between those two figures which establishes circumstantial evidence of intentional discrimination. Here, the population or community from which the grand jury was chosen was the Fairbanks North Star Borough. There is no evidence in the record that Alaska Natives were substantially underrepresented given the proportionate membership of that group in the Borough's population. Thus, Brower has failed to establish a prima facie case under Castaneda.

Brower's argument is really quite different than the issue in Castaneda. He is contending that the grand jury was drawn from an improperly constituted community, an issue not addressed in Castaneda or the other federal cases upon which he relies. That issue was, however, addressed by the Alaska Supreme Court in Alvarado v. State, 486 P.2d 891 (Alaska 1971). The court in that case held that a petit jury must be chosen from a fair cross section of the total community and that the concept of community encompasses the location of the alleged offense. 486 P.2d at 902. The court concluded that limiting the jury panel to those within a fifteen-mile radius of Anchorage, which excluded the village in which Alvarado's crime occurred, was not an appropriate community from which to choose a jury. The court reasoned that an urban area such as Anchorage did not adequately represent the total community. Id. at 901. However, the supreme court has declined to apply Alvarado to grand jury selection. See Peterson v. State, 562 P.2d 1350, 1366 (Alaska 1977). See also Crawford v. State, 408 P.2d 1002, 1007 (Alaska 1965) (reaffirmed in Alvarado v. State, 486 P.2d at 904).

We hold that Judge Hanson did not err in denying Brower's motion to dismiss the indictment. As long as the area from which the grand jury is chosen does not underrepresent a cognizable group when compared to the state as a whole, we will find no equal protection violation. There is nothing in the record to establish that Brower's grand jury, which was chosen from the Fairbanks North Star Borough, substantially underrepresented Alaska Natives when compared to that group's representation in the state as a whole.

Brower next argues that his constitutional right to a speedy trial, construed in light of Alaska Criminal Rule 45, was violated. Brower concedes that less than 120 days elapsed from the time he was waived to adult status to the time he entered his plea. He also concedes that Rule 45 is not directly applicable to juvenile proceedings. He argues, nevertheless, that where juvenile jurisdiction is waived, part of the time prior to the waiver should be considered.[1] We reject Brower's argument. *293 The supreme court has specifically held that Rule 45 does not apply to juvenile proceedings. In re R.D.S.M., 565 P.2d 855, 858 (Alaska 1977). We see no reason to modify In re R.D.S.M. where a juvenile is waived to adult court. We hold that Rule 45 begins to run on the day the waiver order is signed. Courts interpreting similar speedy trial provisions have reached the same result. See, e.g., People v. Woodruff, 88 Ill. 2d 10, 58 Ill.Dec. 869, 871-72, 430 N.E.2d 1120, 1122-23 (1981); State v. White, 223 N.W.2d 173, 175 (Iowa 1974); State v. Howell, 89 N.M. 10, 546 P.2d 858, 859 (1976); State ex. rel. Williams v. Court of Common Pleas, 42 Ohio St.2d 433, 329 N.E.2d 680, 681 (1975); State v. Jacks, 25 Wash. App. 141, 605 P.2d 363, 364-65 (1980). Cf. Commonwealth v. Bell, 245 Pa.Super. 164, 369 A.2d 345, 346 (1976), aff'd mem., 481 Pa. 229, 392 A.2d 691 (Pa. 1978). But cf. State v. Benton, 337 So. 2d 797, 798 (Fla. 1976) (juvenile speedy trial rule requires contrary result).

We also reject Brower's constitutional argument. In order to show a violation of his constitutional right to a speedy trial, Brower must show prejudice resulting from any delay. Springer v. State, 666 P.2d 431, 434-35 (Alaska App. 1983). Brower makes no showing of prejudice. He argues that the supreme court in In re R.D.S.M. suggested that Rule 45, which eliminates any need to show prejudice, applies to juvenile proceedings by analogy. However, our review of that case indicates that Brower is in error. The trial court did not err in rejecting Brower's contention that he was denied his right to a speedy trial.

The judgment of the superior court is AFFIRMED.


[1] Brower argues that Rule 45 is "a valuable guide" in determining whether a juvenile's right to speedy trial has been violated. See Alaska Const. art. I, § 11; U.S. Const. amend. VI. He relies on In re R.D.S.M., 565 P.2d 855, 858 n. 13 (Alaska 1977). But cf. State v. Williams, 681 P.2d 313, 315 (Alaska 1984) (Rule 45 will generally provide a speedier trial than is constitutionally required).

It was as if I was struck by an electric current right in the brain. This woman is Vicki's mother. I would never have thought so and would not have believed it if I had not heard it firsthand. A beautiful, fashionable and sexy woman looked at most like Vicki's sister and did not fit the role of her mother in any way.

Thinking about all this, I did not stop fucking Vika, loudly slapping my stomach on her ass.
