Thumbs up:

GDP growth: It looks like Alaska is emerging from its recession.

Indigenous emojis: Don’t see yourself represented in emojis? Haida artist creates his own.

Deep freeze: Yes, temperatures were uncomfortable, but the cold may have killed some of those pesky spruce bark beetles.

Rural DMV: First-of-its-kind partnership brings a mobile DMV to rural Alaska.

Thumbs down:

Population: We keep losing people, and Alaska’s birth rate has slowed.

Layoffs: There have been more layoffs in local journalism. Time to renew that subscription.

Cancer: Alaska ranks near the bottom when it comes to lung cancer survival rates. Getting screened helps.
