Thumbs up, thumbs down

by The 100 Companies

Thumbs up:

• Alaska workers: Governor Dunleavy makes college degrees optional for many state jobs. Hope it starts a trend.

• Aurora fans: Once-in-a-generation northern lights display fills social media feeds, reminds Alaskans why we live here – especially in February.

• Drones: University of Fairbanks reaches milestone, winning federal approval to oversee other organizations’ unmanned aerial flights.

Thumbs down:

• Snow loads: Too much snow results in several major roof collapses, one fatal.

• Trail stress: Anchorage’s recreational trails are being “loved to death.” Ballot measure aims to fix it.

• Energy shortage: Southcentral Alaska could lack a reliable local energy source by decade’s end. Yikes.
