Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, look over the area at the Spencer Glacier, in back, south of Girdwood, Alaska during the dedication of the first phase of the Alaska Railroad and the U.S. Forest Service’s Whistle Stop service. Stevens, the nation’s longest-serving Republican senator and a major figure in Alaska politics since before statehood, was indicted Tuesday on seven felony counts of concealing more than a quarter of a million dollars in house renovations and gifts from a powerful oil contractor that lobbied him for government aid.Al Grillo)
