One of Bethel's hotels wants help from the city council in dealing with people who have been drinking.

Juan Delgado with Delta Cottages stood up and told the council that the owners of the hotel want the city to stop taxi cabs from dropping inebriated customers at their door. He says that the hotel doesn't rent rooms to people who are drinking because they damage the property and threaten the guests.

Twenty years ago this past weekend, Evan Ramsey shot and killed two people at the Bethel High School: Principal Ron Edwards and student Josh Palacios. This week, KYUK, in partnership with KTVA’s Rhonda McBride, is re-broadcasting a series that looks back on the tragedy and the Ramsey family. McBride produced the five-part series for Alaska News Nightly in 1999, two years after the shooting.
