Former politicians back in action at UAF

November 19, 2009

UAF was packed with newsworthy events this week. In addition to an edition of The Sun Star on Tuesday that included quite a bit of news (they’re still on the stands if you want to read about what happened at ASUAF last week), two former politicians came to visit! Unfortunately, I didn’t make it to any of their appearances. But plenty of other journalists did, so I’ll point you to their take on the events.

Frank Murkowski gave a lecture on energy (mostly gas and oil, from what I understand). It’ll take a little scrolling, but Andrew Sheeler provides a nice recap via twitter, or you can wait and read his story in The Sun Star next week.

Ted Stevens was also in town. He visited his archives, and then BP gave the University $1 million to help get them processed and stored. Here’s how the News-Miner covered that story.
