Alaska Supreme Court

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Supreme Court Justice Dana Fabe plans to retire next year.

Fabe, who was the first woman appointed to serve on the court and the first woman to serve as chief justice, intends to retire June 1. The Alaska court system released news of Fabe's planned retirement on Tuesday.

Fabe, who was appointed to the court in 1996, has served three terms as chief justice, the most recent ending this past June.

Fabe said she was giving early notice of her retirement because it can take months to fill a judicial vacancy, and she wants to have a smooth transition.

City of Yakima

YAKIMA (AP) — The Yakima City Council is drafting a separation agreement with City Manager Tony O'Rourke.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports that that the council voted 4-1 Tuesday to draft the agreement. On Aug. 24, O'Rourke told the council he was resigning, effective Jan. 1.

The single dissenting vote was cast by Dave Ettl, who said he worried the council was not following proper procedure because O'Rourke has not submitted a formal letter of resignation.

O'Rourke has publically accused City Council members of breaking state law by leaking news of his resignation to the media, but other critics counter that O'Rourke may have violated state law by announcing his resignation in executive session.
