Thumbs up:

PFD raffle: Alaskans embrace using their PFDs to fund education, with a chance to win cash. $976,400 was raised for education this year and thousands for cash payouts.

Choose respect: A worthy cause with deep roots in Alaska goes national thanks to bipartisan effort in D.C.

Yup’ik spelling bee: Annual spelling contest highlights Yup’ik literacy.

Thumbs down:

Thin ice: Early thaw is causing tragic accidents. Stay safe, friends.

Rotten trees: Spruce bark beetles force closure of popular campgrounds to remove trees.

Romano’s: Another Anchorage landmark restaurant bites the dust. RIP, chicken marsala and cheesy wall mural.
