Thumbs up, thumbs down

by The 100 Companies

Thumbs up:

• Sharing vaccines: Visitors and friends across the border in Canada are receiving COVID-19 vaccines from the State of Alaska.

• Ferry service: The blue canoe is funded for the next 18 months, meaning travelers can plan their trips with confidence.

• Live music: The Alaska State Fair announces its 2021 concert lineup.

Thumbs down:

• Construction costs: Pandemic-related shortages are increasing costs of building material. Try to buy plywood lately? Whoa.

• Shrinking salmon: Alaska’s famous wild salmon are shrinking. Scientists aren’t sure why.

• Cruise ship initiatives: Southeast Alaska has been decimated by cancelled cruise seasons. These petitions will make it worse.
