    A long-time Alaskan political aide has a new book from the University of Alaska Press about how relations between the Russian Far East and Alaska thawed in the mid-80s and have thrived for 30 years. David Ramseur worked for governors Steve Cowper and Tony Knowles, and Senator Mark Begich, and was a first-hand witness to the melting of the "ice curtain," which is also the title of his book. He spoke with KDLL's Jay Barrett.
