Happy New Year!

With 2020 safely behind us – we thought it would never leave – and with COVID-19 vaccines being administered across the land, this is shaping up to be an exciting New Year for Alaska and for the nation, with a new president and high hopes. Last year, at this time, we wrote we expected: “In […]
