Galena, Alaska

Galena is a city in the Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area in the U. S. state of Alaska. At the 2010 census the population was 470, with a 2016 estimate of 488 inhabitants. Galena was established in 1918, a military airfield was built adjacent to the city during World War II; the city was incorporated in 1971. The Koyukon Athabascans moved as the wild game migrated. In the summer many families floated on rafts to the Yukon River to fish for salmon. There were 12 summer fish camps located on the Yukon River between the Koyukuk River and the Nowitna River. Galena was established in 1918 near an Athabascan fish camp called Henry's Point, it became a supply and point for nearby lead ore mines that opened in 1918 and 1919, from which the place takes its name. In 1941 and 1942, during World War II, a military air field was built adjacent to the civilian airport, the two facilities shared the runway and flight line facilities; this air field was designated Galena Air Force Station shortly after the split of the United States Air Force from the United States Army, which occurred as a result of the National Security Act of 1947.

During the 1950s, the construction of additional military facilities at Galena and the nearby Campion Air Force Station, in support of Galena's mission as a forward operating base under the auspices of the 5072nd Air Base Group, headquartered at Elmendorf Air Force Base, near Anchorage, provided improvements to the airport and the local infrastructure, causing economic growth for the area. Following the end of the Cold War, in 1993, operation of Galena Air Force Station was turned over to a contractor, all military personnel were withdrawn with only small groups of active personnel visiting the base on an as-needed basis; the former military facility remains in use as a forward operating location, used by the military. This use came under scrutiny by the Base Realignment and Closure Committee in the late 2000s and was closed October 1, 2010; the Air Force retains responsibility for toxin cleanup in the area and engineers from Eielson Air Force Base in Fairbanks still visit the site on occasion.

The base is now controlled by the City of Galena, the Galena School District and the Alaska Department of Transportation. The Alaska Wing of the Civil Air Patrol was pursuing retaining one of the F-16 fighter hangars as a CAP facility for the CAP Wing in Galena, the "Yukon Squadron"; the City of Galena gained notoriety in 2011 when it was noted in media reports as being the US community which received the most benefits from lobbying efforts. The town evaded bankruptcy by aggressively lobbying for state and federal funds for the GILA boarding school in the town, which produced funds that turned the city's finances around. In May 2013, Galena suffered a freak catastrophic flood when the spring breakup on the Yukon River caused an ice jam 20 miles downstream, backing up the river and affecting 90% of homes in the city; this flood was on the scale of a flood never seen before by Galena residents. In the part of town closest to the river, houses were submerged to the roofs in water, properties on higher ground suffered damage also.

Most of the residents had to evacuate in thanks to the efforts of the local airline, volunteer missionary pilots, the Alaska National Guard. Some of the residents chose to stay behind and took refuge in the few last remaining dry parts of town; the flood dike the Air Force built around the runway managed to keep the river from inundating the runway and GILA. Efforts are underway to help Galena rebuild, with the assistance of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and volunteer groups. Galena is located at 64°44′26″N 156°53′8″W. Galena is located on the north bank of the Yukon River, 45 mi east of Nulato; the Innoko National Wildlife Refuge is southwest of Galena.

Goniobranchus setoensis

Goniobranchus setoensis is a species of sea slug, a dorid nudibranch, a marine gastropod mollusc in the family Chromodorididae. This species was known as Chromodoris setoensis for many years before it was transferred to the genus Goniobranchus on the basis of molecular evidence in 2012; this species was described from Japan. It has been confused with Goniobranchus decorus and many records of G. decorus are in fact misidentifications. It occurs in the central Indo-Pacific region from Japan to Sri Lanka, as far east as the Marshall Islands and Kiribati; the two species are sympatric in the Marshall Islands. The body of this chromodorid nudibranch is translucent white with opaque white lines, purple spots and a sub-surface margin of orange-red. There is a white line around the centre of the back and a line running from between the rhinophores to the middle of the back where it divides to pass around the gills in a loop. Outside the outer white line is a row or double row of purple spots which never have a halo of white around them.

There are small white spots along the mantle edge. The tips of the rhinophores and the outer part of the gills is white. Goniobranchus setoensis feeds on sponges of the family Aplysillidae

Dragon Lee works for Ring of Honor, where he is the current ROH World Television Champion in his first reign, New Japan Pro-Wrestling, under the name Ryu Lee, where he is a former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion. Dragon Lee is the son of professional wrestler Arturo Muñoz, known under the ring name La Bestia del Ring, where the family relationship is publicly acknowledged, he is the second person to use the Dragon Lee ring persona and mask, the first Dragon Lee being his older brother Carlos, who now wrestles under the ring name Místico.

On March 23, 2014 Dragon Lee was one of 16 wrestlers in a tornero cibernetico match, hoping to qualify for one of eight spots in CMLL's annual En Busca de un Ídolo tournament.

Dragon Lee was one of the eight survivors of the match alongside Cachorro, Guerrero Negro Jr. Hechicero, Star Jr. Soberano Jr. and Super Halcon Jr. and thus qualified for the actual tournament.
