At the Forget-Me-Not Cottage on the Old Glenn Highway in Chugiak, it's easy to feel like you're being watched. There's a face in every direction. The glances aren't suspicious though. They're the curious looks of statues, dolls and figurines that are part of a collection that spans generations.

Bonnie Blair, a five-time gold medal Olympic speed skater, spoke and signed autographs in Anchorage on Friday, January 20, 2012. BP brought Blair to town as part of the company’s USA Olympic sponsorship. Blair, who won six medals overall in her career, opened her talk by describing her first gold medal moment in 1988. She was visibly choked up at describing the scene in Calgary when saw members of her family in the audience before taking her place on the podium. It’s a story she must have told countless times. I was struck by how the emotion still resonated some 24 years later, and I had a chance to ask her about that moment about the role family plays in elite-level athletics. –Marc Lester

Jeanne and Fred McQueary’s home is the brightest house on Ascot Street in Sand Lake this time of year. Lighted decorations follow the roofline, fill the front yard and reach to the top of a mature spruce tree outside the home. What a passer-by can’t see, though, is the most remarkable holiday display at the residence.

Three red, humanlike forms stand in a cluster on Mountain View Drive just north of the Glenn Highway. Each figure, 1,500 pounds of concrete, is anchored to the ground with a steel pipe and, in the minds of its creators, with a sense of community in Mountain View’s diverse population.

Bad Santa wants to know if you’ve been naughty or nice. Bad Santa isn’t passing judgment, though. Bad Santa has made his own mistakes, he says, like that thing he did on spring break to get him put on the 86 list at Senor Frog’s. Bad Santa – more leering than cheering – swapped stories and clinked glasses at the Tourism Holiday Party at the Alaska Aviation Museum on Wednesday evening.

From Anne Raup:
Paul Souders used to work for the Anchorage Daily News as a staff photographer. Alaska got too small, so he left to explore the world. Since I replaced him as a staff photographer, I never worked with Paul, but have gotten to know his Daily News work well, and have followed his career with great interest. Among Paul's passions is photographing icebergs. Some of his ice work was recently featured in the Daily Mail. This collection is just a fraction of what you can see at his website.

Luchia was calm as two girls brushed her hair and smoothed the tangles in her mane Tuesday. Volunteer caretaker Carla Rehm offered a big, mushy meal for the 24-year-old Arabian mare. As she was given a clean and dry blanket, the horse’s body was briefly exposed. Luchia is nearly skeletal and in dire need of the nutrition and care these hands were providing.
