ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Residents of Bethel, Alaska, know from cable TV ads what the major fast-food chains offer: chicken at KFC, burgers at McDonald's and tacos at Taco Bell.
They just haven't been able to get any of it.
So the residents of this town in western Alaska were elated to learn that Taco Bell was soon going to open a restaurant.
The joy, however, turned into disappointment. The flyers announcing the chain's arrival were a hoax - the result, police say, of a feud between two residents.
But all was not lost.
Taco Bell executives learned of the mix-up and arranged an enormous feast for Sunday. They plan to fly enough ingredients in from Anchorage to make 10,000 tacos.
