It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Not that I’ve lost interest in things, but the summer was typically busy and actually quite pleasant sans mosquitoes and yellow-jackets. Fall is now in fall-swing. Some nice evenings of aurora and the colors…. A nice photoblog to give you an idea of what I mean.
A short off-year local election is coming up soon. A neighbor of ours has been running most actively for FNSB Assembly. She’s been quite active, but doesn’t follow through on neighborly commitments, like cleaning up her junkyard, dealing with a drainage clearing mess on the road which was in her bailiwick. And I guess I also happen to disagree 100% with her platforms of “get the government out of our lives, no taxes.” I’ll be supporting Kelly Brown, who seems to have a better appreciation for where Fairbanks is now.
I expect to soon have more to say about the University of Alaska’s commitment on reducing its carbon footprint and sustainability this fall. I’ve been actively trying to get some action going to follow up on all the speeches and other verbal commitments.
