Reports of mountain lions around Delta Junction have led members of a local trail-users group to post a sign on a popular trail advising users about the sightings. But none of the reports were backed-up by photos, tracks or other evidence. So for now, local Fish and Game experts remain skeptical that the big cats are roaming around Delta.

The high cost of heat and electricity costs in the Interior have driven many communities to look for cheaper alternative forms of energy, including biomass, in the form of locally harvested timber processed into chips and burned in high-tech boilers.

The state Division of Forestry will soon begin asking for public input on a proposal to harvest timber from the state forest around the Delta-Greely area for a biomass-fueled heat and power system for Fort Greely.
