The Dimond Aquatic Center is nothing short of amazing. It’s what I would describe as a mini indoor water park. When visiting, I couldn’t believe how many things that this place had. There’s an Aqua Aerobics event early in the morning, plus Tai Chi classes too. You can also book all of the event rooms depending on the size of your party, or just one room. The coolest thing is that the water is half salt, half chlorine. There’s all types of things to do here; There’s waterslides, a lazy river, a lap pool with diving boards, locker rooms, showers, a hot tub, a sauna, and yes even a gym with plenty of workout equipment!

Between the sirens blaring all day throughout Mendenhall Valley and the amounts of people getting pulled over by the Juneau Police Department, it’s safe to say that it’s that time of the month. No, not that time of the month, silly nilly. The time of the month where your local police are focusing on making their monthly quota of writing tickets.

Governmental agency that handles US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement just performed one of their biggest busts ever, and netted a total of 680 arrests. The raids took place at seven different food processing plants in just Mississippi alone and consisted in small town busts where many things can easily go under the radar, unless you happen to be a local to one of these vicinities. Locals tend to notice mostly everything in a small town, and operations may seem to be going well, but that certainly doesn’t mean that the people surrounding said corrupt operations don’t notice. Both owners and employees of the companies in question are under fire and having to answer to authorities, and are seemingly not excited about the publicity they’re getting. (Then again, who would be?) ICE agents are said to be using a military facility to appropriate due processing following the heavyweight bust.

Edit: The incident is an ongoing investigation, and not a health emergency as I had suggested. (7:41 AM - 8/8/19)

(Posted 1:22 - 8/8/19) Police sirens could be heard around 12:55 AM in the morning passing through Auke Bay. When phoning dispatch, they confirmed that they could not share any details, which typically means that this is a medical response that must be kept private. Lingering questions: What could have happened out the road in the middle of the night that requires a medical response, and how far towards Eagle Beach are they having to drive in order to respond to this call? Phone service when heading towards the Eagle Beach area can sometimes be spotty, however, when your phone rings and you’re somewhat close to the end of the road, you can find yourself quite surprised that you’re even getting service at all.

But, since we’re here and there’s not much else that I can share with you about the emergency that’s been responded to Out The Road towards Eagle Beach, let’s take a photographic journey out the road, shall we? I have a collection of photos that help give you an idea of the things you might see when heading towards the end of the road. Not all attractions are accounted for, however, this will give people traveling here an idea of what to expect when heading out there into the wilderness that awaits. The following photos are not in any specific order for the most part, but I have grouped them by location or animals that you can find while out there. But first, let’s jump right into a video!




Edit: Dispatch now reports that several Fire & Rescue calls were reported on the night of the structure fire, that no reports are shown from me about any of them even though 2 were said to have been filed back to back, and that none of the Capitol City Fire & Rescue calls were deemed suspicious. (Updated 7:37AM 8/8/19)

(Posted 8/7/19 - 2:35 AM)
In the Capitol of Alaska, there’s an active investigation into yet another structure fire that happened at around 1:45 AM Alaskan Standard Time, or at least there should be. When calling dispatch, they confirmed that there was a structure fire, but they could not give me anymore details other than that. I preemptively reached for providing answers about the situation by going ahead and filing a report with dispatch over who I think may have done it. But what’s to note is that the second time I called dispatch, the lady who answered my call at 2:21 AM didn’t plan on taking a report even though I said that I had information that could be pertinent to the case. I flat out had to convince her that if she was a good dispatcher, that she would be excited or even willing to take the report without me having to point out that it’s strange that she doesn’t care to take the report. And yes, I do have this call audio recorded.

The fact that serial structure fires happen out here is not a coincidence, which means that we can place a safe bet that this was no accident, and that if someone rules this as an accident, that person should and will be looked at like they’re crazy. But don’t allow me to rush you to judgement just yet, because you don’t know my experiences with the suspects and you definitely don’t know the full story…. But, if you very well do know what happened, the who done it, and you’re not telling the proper authorities, then allow me to remind you that you are withholding evidence and can and will be held on an account of accessories to the crime. I speak for everyone here that’s a good person when I say that the locals here are tired of the asinine and childish behavior, and I also speak for them when I say that if you want to play with fire, then you’re going to get burned in the fourth degree.

When you’ve got a problem with someone, you tend to wear your attitude towards this person on your sleeve. Where am I going with this you might be asking? Well, if I was to believe the dense-minded individuals that inhabit this beautiful nature–wonderland, I would say we’re going straight to hell. As a matter of fact, according to them, this place is already hell. Says so on the top of a doorway in an alley downtown. However, I refuse to believe the dimwitted hooligan that painted it up there. Took me a while to narrow down who would be stupid enough to write the word “hell” in the small condensed area of downtown where this could easily be seen by any tourist walking by if they just happened to look down the alley way while perusing the area. And in fact, noticing someone’s childish satanic tagging didn’t take me very long at all, and believe me when I say that I proverbially “raised hell” when I found out about it when I paid a visit to City Hall, questioning who was stupid enough to think that doing something like that in a tourist town was cool. No one had an answer for me, so I had to do some digging of my own, and now I think I’ve actually found the dunce who did this.

In so many words…. Sitting POTUS Donald Trump claims that he isn’t getting fair coverage on the US/Mexico border progress. Trump made allegations that Fake News Media gives him no credit by specifically stating:

When we rip down and totally replace a badly broken and dilapidated Barrier on the Southern Border, something which cannot do the job, the Fake News Media gives us zero credit for building a new Wall. We have replaced many miles of old Barrier with powerful new Walls!

This is a rather fair assessment by President Donald Trump being as how he actually has made plenty of progress, while the Washington Examiner adds a reply to his aforementioned statement that he released to his Twitter account. Washington Examiner’s reply states the following:

Trump has not built a single mile of new border fence after 30 months in office – The Trump administration has not installed a single mile of new wall in a previously fenceless part of the U.S.-Mexico…

When you research the facts just based on things Trump has said about the wall, you find out that he has been reported as stating:

San Diego, illegal traffic dropped 92% once the wall was up. El Paso, illegal traffic dropped 72%, then ultimately 95%, once the wall was up. In Tucson, Arizona, illegal traffic dropped 92 percent. Yuma, it dropped illegal traffic 95 to 96%.

It’s a beautiful day. I’m at work. Things are going great. It’s about that time and I’m heading outdoors. I drive toward Egan and without a second to lose– there’s a Fire and Rescue siren, but no car in sight. Then, suddenly the vehicle is visible and it’s passing me in the turning lane headed towards Downtown Juneau. I get to where I’m headed and I see the lights that passed me flashing on the other side of right where I’m parked. The grass made things too tall to see, so I went inside. When I came out, I took a better look and noticed that there was what appeared to be a car that had been flipped upside down.

I can’t believe what I’m seeing, but I’m a busy man– so I go about my business. I tell other people about what I had seen in order to warn them about anyone complaining about traffic later on in the day, only to learn that it was a female that wrecked and that no others were involved in the wreck. I also learned that a bus then parked itself in both lanes to block anyone from driving through in the double-lanes of Egan Southbound to DoJu in front of Fred Meyer. However, let’s just say that Fred Meyer has earned a reputation of its own around here, and it’s not a great one. Sure, they’ve got great prices. But what else do they got going on in there? Listen to the Sheriff Says Sup podcasts and you’ll see.
