Dec. 2, 2002 — LOS ANGELES — For five years, Oliverio Martinez has been blind and paralyzed as the result of a police shooting. Now he is at the center of a U.S. Supreme Court case that could determine whether decades of restraints on police interrogations should be discarded.

The blanket requirement for a Miranda warning to all suspects that they have the right to remain silent could end up in the rubbish bin of history if the court concludes police were justified in questioning the gravely wounded Martinez while he screamed in agony.


Dec. 2, 1987 — Fairbanks has an estimated 4,218 alcoholics and 2,825 of them are employed males whose lack of production is a drain on the local economy, said Carol Ganley.

Ganley said Alaska has a per capita alcohol consumption rate of 3.93 gallons per person per year, the fourth highest level in the nation.


Dec. 2, 1962 — The University of Alaska Nanooks trailed by 12 points after hibernating for the first eight minutes last night in the

U of A gym, then suddenly came to life and went on to edge the Fort Wainwright Rangers 69-65 in a North of the Range contest.


Dec. 2, 1937 — Chief of Police Joe Hubbard today called to the attention of property owners that “they are required to keep their sidewalks clear of snow.”

This requirement, that walks be kept unobstructed, is backed by municipal ordinance.

A yearly problem in Fairbanks, the snow today gave exercise to many residents.

The walks in front of most downtown places of business were fairly clear this morning.
