Happy Halloween - 10/31/08 10:46 AM
Well, it's that time of year again. Time to get dressed up as nuns and go bar hopping. ha. Just kidding. It's time to let the kids and grandkids go from door to door in an organized panhandling troupe in hops of scoring lots of sweet treats. Thanks to a grant from the Alaska Highway Safety Office, officers from the Fairbanks Police Department, the University of Alaska Fairbanks Police Department and Volunteers in Policing will be patrolling city neighborhoods between 5:30 - 9:00PM giving out glow sticks to trick or treaters. These glow sticks will help Fairbanks trick or treaters be (21 comments)

Surviving a Fairbanks Winter By: Fairbanks Real Estate Broker Jesse Clifton This morning the thermometer outside my kitchen window said it was a balmy -12. Yep. That's twelve degrees BELOW zero. Brrr. If this is your first foray into the arctic you might be feeling as though you've been dropped off in an icy abyss. Take heart, this will feel warm at -60, I promise. First things first though; winter survival. Take it seriously, as old man winter can be an unforgiving old coot. Alaska is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise. With millions of acres of unspoiled wilderness right out our (45 comments)
She walks in beauty like the night... - 10/14/08 01:22 PM
Of cloudless climes and starry skies, And all that's best of dark and bright Meets in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellow'd to that tender light Which Heaven to gaudy day denies. One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impair'd the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress Or softly lightens o'er her face, Where thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear their dwelling-place. And on that cheek and o'er that brow So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints (39 comments)
Breast Cancer Detection Center of Alaska - 10/10/08 04:51 AM
By: Fairbanks Ak Real Estate Broker Jesse Clifton Belonging to a family in which cancer has taken a hearty toll I can think of nothing else I would so love to see wiped from the face of the earth. Perhaps brussel sprouts, but first things first. As evidenced by the little pink ribbons popping up everywhere, most folks know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Thanks to the addition of mobile mammogram clinics in '95 and '97 and new units in 2003 and again in 2006, the Breast Cancer Detection Center of Alaska serves a vast area from the Bering (3 comments)
A nasty little five letter word... - 10/09/08 12:52 PM
I've been called a lot of things in my time... some were glowing and syrupy sweet and admittedly there were a few don't bear repeating in mixed company. Yesterday, however, I had the unfortunate opportunity to explain one of the more unsavory five letter words to a Realtor colleague. Usury According to Black's Law: "The charging of an illegal rate of interest. An illegally high rate of interest..." i.e. robbery, stealing, exploitation... Recently I met with a potential client who was interested in putting several parcels of vacant land up for sale. They were originally purchased with the intent to develop (83 comments)
Fairbanks AK Recycling Event - 10/03/08 04:21 AM
By: Fairbanks AK Real Estate Broker Jesse Clifton In this case it is easy being green. Alaska Green Star is holding a fall recycling event this Saturday and Monday from 10:00AM - 4:00PM in the back parking lot of the Westmark Hotel on 8th and Noble (Google Maps Link). Green Star collected 12 tons from the recycling drive in April - a number they're hoping to match or exceed. According to the National Safety Council approximately 41 million computers became outdated in 2004 and 63 million in 2005. That number was expected to reach upwards of 500 million in 2007.

Heating your Fairbanks Ak home this winter - 10/02/08 04:34 AM
By: Fairbanks AK Real Estate Broker Jesse Clifton With energy costs in Alaska still some of the highest in the nation, it's no surprise that the cost of heating fuel has been a major topic of discussion in Fairbanks lately. While my crystal ball is on the fritz it's a fairly safe bet that heating costs will be significantly higher this winter than last. However, there are some things you can do to ease the pain of seeing the fuel invoice hanging on your door. Shopping for the best price goes without saying, but don't forget to see what programs are (9 comments)
