Downtown drive-by shooter pleads guilty

A Juneau man accused of firing a bullet that landed just inches away a person’s head pleaded guilty Thursday in Juneau Superior Court to felony weapons misconduct.

Jose Antonio Delgado, 47, accepted a plea deal that reduces the weapons charge from a class A felony to a class B felony, and dismisses two other felony assault charges that a Juneau grand jury indicted him of in March.

From the halls of high school to the halls of Congress

Kevin Allen is not your typical teenager. Instead of on a sports field or at a bonfire, you’re more likely to find him giving input at a Juneau School Board meeting, sitting at a committee hearing at the Alaska State Capitol or commenting during a Native Issues Forum at Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall. And he’ll probably be wearing a suit.

“I want to look like the results I want,” the 18-year-old said.

Juneau fifth-grader Marlla Cabrigas-Blatnick beamed as she listened to teacher Thomas Schwartz make some personal remarks about her.

“Marlla is one of my most consistently positive students. She always greets me with a ‘Hi, Tom!’ Even when I present her with a question first thing in the morning, she responds with, ‘Hi, Tom!” Schwartz said, to audience laughter. “I used to think she was quiet and shy until I played dodgeball with her. Watch out. I was on the opposite team and she clobbered me. No mercy.”

Planning Commission denies asphalt plant permit

After four meetings of discussion and gridlock, the commission denied a conditional use permit that would have allowed an asphalt plant to be constructed near the Rock Dump at its Tuesday night meeting.

With hardly any discussion, the commission — whole for the first time since late February — denied Knik Construction’s permit on the grounds that it wouldn’t be in harmony with the neighboring area due to increased truck activity on Thane Road, which would continue through the downtown core.

Hospital arsonist avoids longer prison term

A Juneau man received a mostly suspended sentence in court this week nearly two years after a methamphetamine-driven delusion caused him to start a fire that flooded a hospital emergency room.

Robert E. Johnson, 28, won’t serve time at Lemon Creek Correctional Center for the second-degree felony arson charge he pleaded guilty to, despite the seven-year sentence Judge Keith Levy ordered on Monday. Six of those years are suspended and time previously served takes care of another. But it isn’t by way of good luck that Johnson evaded prison.
