NOME, Alaska (AP) — A 53 year old former champion has won the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race to become the oldest winner of Alaska's grueling test of endurance.

Mitch Seavey and 10 dogs crossed the Nome finish line to cheering crowds at 10:39 p.m. Alaska time Tuesday.

His victory in the 1,000 mile race came after a dueling sprint against Aliy Zirkle, last year's runner-up, along the Bering Sea coast. The pair jostled for the lead, closely followed by four-time champion Jeff King.

Seavey, who first won the Iditarod in 2004, is the father of last year's champion, Dallas Seavey, who at age 25 became the youngest Iditarod winner ever, beating Zirkle to the finish line by one hour.

Before Mitch Seavey's second win, King was the oldest Iditarod champion, winning his fourth race at age 50 in 2006.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Dozens of environmentalists and land owners are meeting with lawmakers in Springfield hoping to persuade them to temporarily ban high-volume oil and gas drilling in Illinois.

Opponents of hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," held a rally and lobbied Illinois legislators Tuesday. They're hoping to win support for a two-year moratorium on the practice instead of regulations that would allow it.

Fracking opponents say they were ignored during negotiations over a regulatory bill, which proponents say would give Illinois the nation's toughest regulations.

Protesters say they fear the water around their southern Illinois homes could be polluted by the practice.

Fracking uses high-pressure mixtures of water, sand or gravel and chemicals to crack rock formations to release oil and natural gas.

Police say two boys had been playing along the roadside when Evan Ketto ran into the path of the truck. It swerved, but couldn't avoid striking him.

The child was airlifted to a Farmington hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
