“Harvey lived in Juneau on a dirt road near the glacier and he made everything out of that crock. And each time he would pilgrimage to it, he would lovingly replace what he borrowed with flour and water. The pot had a slime around the edges and the contents floated a layer of pure alcohol which looked as deadly as carbolic acid. Harvey had been born and brought up on sourdough and expected to go on using it until the northern lights went out.
The last I heard tell, Harvey had lived to about ninety-nine when he died an alcoholic.” - Don & Myrtle Holm, ‘The Complete Sourdough Cookbook’
Legorobotics is a party. That’s the first thing you’ll notice when you walk through the doors at Centennial Hall Convention Center at the annual Juneau Robot Jamboree. The attire is festive. Each team wore colorful, self-designed t-shirts. Some sported a team hairstyle, like the Prickles, a Skagway team whose girls put their hair up in dual buns. Team Happy Dave, a homeschool team from Juneau who won the “Robot Performance” award, donned top hats. A pinstriped judge topped her outfit with an electric blue wig. Pop hits like Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” blared over the competition main stage, where two teams compete on pairs of 8-by-4 foot robotics competition tables, surrounded by stands for parents to take video. A Boy Scout team on one of the stands danced to the song “Harlem Shake.” Several of them did the “Bernie,” wiggling their arms at their sides while looking up at the ceiling. Twenty-three teams from across Southeast showed up for the annual competition this year, organizer Rebecca Soza said, a good chunk of the 178 teams in the state. Each team provides a chance for fourth-eighth grade students to learn technology, engineering and critical thinking skills, build confidence and learn how to solve real-world problems.

Video of the Thane Road mudslide earlier this afternoon.
Alaska’s Department of Transportation employees cleared Thane Road south of downtown Juneau after a mudslide on Monday afternoon.
After days of heavy rain, a portion of the bluff collapsed. It left mud several feet thick in the northbound lane of the road, flooded at least a quarter-mile of the road with fast-moving water. A few trees dangling precariously close to nearby power lines.
