I asked around the office this year, “What are you thankful for?” Here’s what people said.

Annie Bartholomew

“I’m thankful for Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.”

Christy Ciambor

“I’m thankful for sunny Juneau days. I’m also thankful for the OT, speech therapists, para-educators and all the people that work with our autism community here in Juneau.”

Sarah Schaefer

“I’m thankful for getting a shower back after not having a shower for probably three months. So that’s what I’m really, really thankful for, that house renovations are almost complete. And that I’m getting heating installed in these cold days very soon.”

Jeff Brown

“I’m thankful for my friends and my family.”

Elasonga Milligrock

“I am thankful for just being alive today, and being able to enjoy the sunshine and the possible winter wonderland coming to Juneau, Alaska, for Christmas.”

DJ Thomson

“I’m thankful for a job, and food on my table and a warm house, and friends, and great coworkers because not everybody has those things.”

Sheli Delaney

“I am very thankful for my mom. This year more than ever and every year as I get older, I’m more and more thankful for her. She is my rock, she’s always there for me, she gives me great advice. And she’s a lot of fun. And she’s come to visit me every year since I moved to Juneau, Alaska. She comes to visit from Indiana.

“And I’m thankful for KTOO. I recently started working here. I’m thankful for the opportunities they’ve provided me. So far, it’s been a lot in a short amount of time. And in general, I’m thankful that they exist in Juneau, they’re a great source for news and entertainment. And I listen all the time — even when I’m not working.”

I dig into questions about the forces and institutions that shape Juneau, big and small, delightful and outrageous. What stirs you up about how Juneau is built and how the city works?
