Thumbs up, thumbs down

by The 100 Companies

Thumbs up:

• Civil discourse: Alaska’s largest newspaper redlines comments on stories. Trolls mourn, the rest celebrate.

• Cruise line seafood: Holland America is the first cruise line to be certified by Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) for sustainability.

• Government transparency: State of Alaska’s online checkbook is now permanent. A win for citizens.

Thumbs down:

• Juneau landslide: Incessant rain leads to scary landslide. No one hurt, but structures ruined and nerves are rattled.

• Storm damage: Western Alaska is hammered by a massive storm. On the plus side, communities come together in the aftermath.

• Inmate deaths: Large number of recent inmate deaths raises questions.
