Abbot Loop Community council is having a Summer Park Meet Up!



Please join us, Thursday, July 25th at Atkins Park!

Lake Otis & 84th, behind Alaska Native Cultural Charter School



Abbott Loop Community Council is gathering for an informal meeting at Atkins Park on Thursday, July 25th from 5-7 pm. This park is located behind the Alaska Native Cultural Charter School (ANCCS) on Lake Otis and 84th. Adkins Park is a dedicated park in the MOA containing 3.12 acres of land bordering a section of the South Fork of Little Campbell Creek between the school, Atkins Place and 85th Street.

ANCCS is putting in great effort to create a forest garden and orchard to include native plants and art which will create spaces for learning and enrichment both for the school and the community. ALCC invites you to join us to do some weed pulling, share some snacks, and visit with our neighbors.

We hope you can join us! Bring some gloves and a snack to share! We will have bug spray and water bottles! Look for the ALCC table near the back of the playground area. Probably best to park at the school and walk around towards the playground area- the gate at the side entrance of the school (bus lane) may be locked for summer and the neighborhood streets are narrow.

Associated Press, Spectrum: Alaska serial killer who admitted to killing five people has died in an Indiana prison
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska serial killer who admitted that he killed five people, including one when he was only 14, has died in an Indiana prison, officials said.

Joshua Wade, 44, was found unresponsive in his cell June 14, Brandi Pahl, a spokesperson for the Indiana Department of Correction, said in an email Friday.

“Despite life-saving measures being performed, he was pronounced dead,” she said.

An autopsy was to be performed after Wade died at the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City, Indiana, to determine the cause of death. An email sent to the La Porte County, Indiana, coroner was not immediately returned Friday.

Wade was convicted of state and federal crimes in 2010. He was serving his term at Spring Creek Correctional Center, a maximum-security prison in Seward, Alaska. Four years later, he struck a deal to be moved to a federal prison in Indiana in exchange for admitting to additional killings.
