This undated photo provided by the Matanuska-Susitna Borough shows the Matanuska ferry, in Alaska. An Alaska borough stuck with a $90,000 monthly bill for maintaining the ferry it can't use is offering the $78 million vessel free to federal, state or local governments. The 200-foot Matanuska can carry 120 passengers and 20 vehicles. It was built with federal dollars as a Navy prototype in a deal that called for the borough to test it while shuttling people to Anchorage, Alaska's largest city. (AP Photo/Matanuska-Susitna Borough)
