A few interesting headlines

1) Editorial on the perceived cruelty in long-distance dog mushing.

2) Last week, 4 meth dealers were banished from Allakaket, a village of 100 people on the Koyukuk River. It's accessible by plane, river, or, in winter, a trail from Tanana, a relatively bustling metropolis of 300 people at the confluence of the Tanana and Yukon rivers. Banishment is an ancient punishment that often meant death in premodern times. Nowadays, it's still used in communities that have no police force, nor even a Village Public Safety Officer. Today, this editorial appeared from a community member. I think it speaks well of the community and its self-policing.

3) Anchorage is asking for residents' help with a moose census.

4) A memorial for Buzzwinkle

5) Here is a Starbuckeroo squeezie selfie. Just because.
