Celebrating Alaska's Statehood

This year The Last Frontier turns 50 years old. On January 3, 1959 Alaska was admitted to the Union as the 49th state. The fireworks display at UAF was originally scheduled for two weeks ago, but because of the cold the display was put on hold. Thanks to a Chinook, it was warm enough in Fairbanks to sit outside in shorts and flip flops and watch the fireworks display tonight. Some of us, however, opted for long pants instead.
