ALASKA EARTHQUAKE-UNSAFE HOMES
ANCHORAGE, Alaska _ Albert Schoonbeek and Candice Roberson slept on a mattress in their living room for the first few nights after the Nov. 30 earthquake rocked Southcentral Alaska. The bedroom was unsafe, they worried. The 7.0 quake caused the floor of their garage, which was on the same side of the house as the bedroom, to drop half a foot. More bad news followed. Last week, an engineer told the family the unsteady garage could collapse in a strong aftershock — and take down the entire East Anchorage house with it. By Devin Kelly, Anchorage Daily News.

SCHOOL BOARD-TEEN MEMBER
FAIRBANKS, Alaska _ Alden Jerome collects bow ties, reads books about leadership and hosts a show that is broadcast at his school, Hutchison High School. The 16-year-old, who won a statewide public speaking contest in March, is halfway through his term as the student representative on the Board of Education, the highest position in student governance.
