UP -- Salmon diners: Copper River's best arrives in Anchorage and Seattle. Bon appetit.

UP -- Southcentral anglers: Did you see that photo of the early birds flogging the water at Ship Creek? It's almost time.

DOWN -- Alaskans with allergies: Birch pollen is hell. Let it rain.

DOWN -- Pebble prospect: EPA makes no call but says the copper and gold mine could be a threat to Bristol Bay salmon bounty. Sure doesn't read like an endorsement.

UP -- Carol Comeau: Longtime ASD teacher, principal and super seeks out her old schools on her final last day. A long, good ride.

DOWN -- Anchorage drivers: 'Tis the season for pylons and detours as roadwork begins. Patience, citizens, patience.

UP -- Road construction workers: 'Tis the season for pylons and detours as roadwork begins. That OT will look good come winter.

EVEN -- Turnagain bear viewers: Yup, it's a great photo op, but give the grizz some room, folks, or the picture could get ugly.

DOWN -- Alaska oil ranking: We're now the No. 3 producer in the nation. Let North Dakota have its day in the sun. We've got reserves and reserves and reserves.

UP -- Southcentral Alaskans: Just the other morning, the hillsides took on that full, green look. Spring, brothers and sisters. We lose a little productivity, gain a little mental health.
