LOS ANGELES -- Despite its remote location 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle, North Slope Borough, Alaska, had no trouble finding investors for more than $214 million of general obligation bonds, priced yesterday, morning.

The isolated borough, about the size of Minnesota, will use the proceeds to finance capital improvements, including the construction of water and sewage systems in four villages that currently have no such facilities.
