A mob of extremists supporting President Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol today, violently interrupting lawmakers who were gathered to certify Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

There haven’t been any reported violent demonstrations in Juneau or elsewhere in Alaska today. But there was a small group of protesters gathered on the corner of the Kenai Spur and Sterling highways in Soldotna to show support for the outgoing president.

Placing temporary signage is likely the most misunderstood and disobeyed law in Alaska. But there is one simple rule of campaign signs in the State of Alaska and it is this: If a campaign sign can be read from a state roadway, then it is illegal and should be taken down.
