The 40th annual Alaska Folk Festival is underway in Juneau. Tonight, Folk Fest veteran Jack Fontanella plays with Collette Costa in “Costa’s Second Line Jamboree” at 8pm at Centennial Hall.

- The fire has burned through almost 2,000 acres since Tuesday morning.
- During last week’s Alaska Wood Energy Conference in Ketchikan, participants heard three “case studies” from communities in Alaska that have invested in biomass: Galena, Ketchikan and Tanana.
- The foods we choose to put on our plates — or toss away – could have more of an ecological impact than many of us realize.
- The country's National Grid announced Friday it was on its way to a full day without requiring its coal plants to produce power. Britain plans to eliminate the energy source by 2025.
