The Alaska Zoo

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Nikolai, the last male of the zoo’s wolf pack. He passed away at the age of 15. He would have been 16 this spring. He and his five siblings arrived at the zoo in May of 2006 as pups. He lived his whole life with his siblings by his side and the dedicated zookeepers who took him on frequent walks on the zoo’s wooded back trails. He is survived by his two sisters still at the zoo, Windy and Ruby. Zoo staff and volunteers miss all of the animals whose time it is to pass, however Nikolai won over everyone with his easy going personality and disposition. We will miss you so much, Nik. We know you will greet Denali, Rohn and Lucky for us. Pup photos by John Gomes, photo with Curator Sam Lavin (courtesy of Sam Lavin) and the remaining photos by Zookeeper Alyssa Allen.

Tom MacDonald, Adam Calhoun & Struggle Jennings Lyrics

“In God We Trust”
(feat. Nova Rockafeller)

They separate us from our neighbors and they call it social distancing
It’s actually a bigger plan, it’s called social conditioning
They took away our privacy there’s always someone listening
They’re rigging the elections, planning riots for the citizens
The government has always lied, it’s history repeating
But the problem is the schools dumb you down so you believe ’em
If you try to speak the truth inside a Tweet then they delete it
Whole administration’s Satanist who claim they praising Jesus
Every year there’s a new name for enemies that we’re facing it
Al Qaeda, then ISIS, and now American patriots
Who woulda thought those who love the country the most
Would be hated on by folks who call America home
Both political parties are equally just as evil
They been working for themselves, don’t give a damn ’bout the people
Black, white, yellow, brown, humanity needs you
‘Cause united we stand, divided they will defeat you

The man on the news says the problem is me
I’m just a small-town boy with big American dreams
The world’s going crazy and they lying to us
Don’t know who to believe, so in God we trust

Y’all missing what was written in them pages
That was history they wrote, now you wanna change it
You racist, you hate this
Why you want us all to be locked up in cages?
I can’t stand the left, everything they say’s depressing
Ship ’em to the Middle East, they can learn oppression
Believe me, I mean this quite literal
I love liberty but I hate white liberals
Wear a mask, stay home, complain and moan
Talk about privilege on your phone in your Range Rove
Starbucks mango foo-foo whatever
The cloth I’m cut from can handle any weather
You just paper in the rain, we ain’t the same
Stand for the flag, only kneel when I pray
I just pray we go back to the old days
Land of the free, home of the brave

The man on the news says the problem is me
I’m just a small-town boy with big American dreams
The world’s going crazy and they lying to us
Don’t know who to believe, so in God we trust

I see through all the illusions
Refuse to hear the rumors or accept that we are losing
Easy to get caught up, consumed by the consumer
Truth is so diluted people starve off they confusion
Comfort is the killer, your dreams execution
Cool persecution if I make a contribution
Home of the brave look like a mental institution
And there will be revolution if we can’t find resolution
And a threat is a promise, stand up, pay homage
They tell lies, I’m being honest, judgment time is upon us
I know that God got us so I’m fighting in His honor
Hear the cries of the crusaders as we strapping up our armor
Either [?] higher ground or drown in they drama
If I die for what I love then my death will be nirvana
We fighting for our freedom, don’t believe what they been feeding
Be the change you wanna see, the warrior that we’re needing

The man on the news says the problem is me
I’m just a small-town boy with big American dreams
The world’s going crazy and they lying to us
Don’t know who to believe, so in God we trust

We don’t trust the news, the government, or pharma
We just want freedom, do you have that to offer?
We don’t want the lies, the politics, or the drama
We just want the life that was promised by our fathers
We don’t trust the news, the government, or pharma
We just want freedom, do you have that to offer?
We don’t want the lies, the politics, or the drama
We just want the life that was promised by our fathers

The man on the news says the problem is me
I’m just a small-town boy with big American dreams
The world’s going crazy and they lying to us
Don’t know who to believe, so in God we trust

Quotes February 02, 2022

Courtesy of Henrik Edberg The Positivity Blog


“If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.”
Michael Jordan
“No one can create negativity or stress within you. Only you can do that by virtue of how you process your world.”
Wayne Dyer
“Life is too short to spend in negativity. So I have made a conscious effort to not be where I don’t want to be.”

Hugh Dillon
“Your beliefs, either positive or negative, helpful or hurtful, largely determine everything you do and how you do it.”

Brian Tracy
“People tend to dwell more on negative things than on good things. So the mind then becomes obsessed with negative things, with judgments, guilt and anxiety produced by thoughts about the future and so on.”

Eckhart Tolle
“When we are aware of our weaknesses or negative tendencies, we open the opportunity to work on them.”

Allan Lokos
“Nobody can motivate himself in a positive direction by continually using negative words.”

John C. Maxwell
“There’s a way that you can throw negativity out there that seems rebellious. But I’ve always taken pleasure in a different kind of rebellion, which is putting a positive spin on everything, trying to enjoy myself at all times.”

Zac Efron
“Negativity, in general, is one of the things that holds people back, and you have to see what’s holding you back to get away from it.”

Lucy Dacus
“You can’t think away your self-defeating thoughts; you have to dissolve them through action.”

Marty Rubin
“The best way out is always through.”

Robert Frost
“If you find yourself complaining a lot then you are problem-oriented. Focus on what you can do – not on what you can’t – to become solution-oriented.”

Akiroq Brost
“Curiosity is what keeps me open to a sense of hope. It staves off negativity.”

Carrie Brownstein
“Negative results are just what I want. They’re just as valuable to me as positive results. I can never find the thing that does the job best until I find the ones that don’t.”

Thomas Edison
“Negativity is the enemy of creativity.”

David Lynch
“Just as negative beliefs at some point entered your subconscious mind, and began to subtly shape your lives, new, positive beliefs can also be “planted” there: beliefs that will gradually begin to improve your behavior, your thinking, the way you feel, and thus, your life”

David Bolton
“It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.”

Robert H. Schuller
“If we give something positive to others, it will return to us. If we give negative, that negativity will be returned.”

Allu Arjun
“Negativity is an addiction to the bleak shadow that lingers around every human form, and you can transfigure negativity by turning it toward the light of your soul.”
John O’Donohue
“It is better to dwell on the beautiful things in life than the negative.”

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Negative words are powerful boomerangs so be careful what you say about people and yourself.”

Mary J. Blige
“Here is a magnificent, beautiful, wonderful painting in front of you! It is intricate, detailed, a painstaking labor of devotion and love! The colors are like no other, they swim and leap, they trickle and embellish! And yet you choose to fixate your eyes on the small fly which has landed on it! Why do you do such a thing?”

C. JoyBell C.
“If your thoughts are negative, you’ll probably attract negative events into your life. You will see the bad, not the good. The reverse is also true in that thoughts of creating a positive life find their origin in a positive mind.”

Byron Pulsifer
“However vast the darkness, we must supply it with our own light.”

Stanley Kubrick
“Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
