    Alaska has a new richest resident -- two, in fact, according to the latest listing by Forbes.

    The magazine names real estate developers Jonathan Rubini and Leonard Hyde, of Anchorage-based J-L Properties, as the wealthiest Alaskans, with a net worth of 350-million dollars.

    That bumps money manager Bob GIllam, with an estimated net worth of 320-million, from the top spot he's held for the last couple of years.

    Rubini and Hyde also rank as the least-wealthy of each state's richest resident. Alaska is one of six states with no billionaires.

    While the richest Alaskans are poorest among their counterparts, Alaskans generally rank in the top ten for per capita income and have the second-highest median household income of any state.
