Four days after Delta Junction's mayor ordered the local hockey rink closed to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission, the City Council voted in Tuesday’s meeting to re-open it, in response to an outcry from the local hockey association.
The mayors of Delta Junction and the Denali Borough announced new precautions Thursday in response to the growing number of COVID-19 cases locally and statewide – and the governor’s declaration of a covid emergency.
A Delta Junction City Council member says he’s been victimized by a fake Twitter account established under his name in January that includes several posts with racist comments. Charles Lester says he reported the account to Twitter on Friday, and the account was removed over the weekend. But there are doubts about Lester’s explanation.
