Dec. 10, 2002 — Two bridges must be replaced and four others must be repaired as a result of damage caused by the magnitude 7.9 earthquake that shook the Interior on Nov. 3, but the bridges are in good enough shape to make it through the winter.

State Department of Transportation engineers inspected more than 100 bridges on the Parks, Richardson, Alaska, Tok Cutoff, Northway, Nabesna and Taylor highways following the earthquake.


Dec. 10, 1987 — Fairbanks bars and restaurants are offering more than complimentary coffee to designated drivers in an effort to reduce the number of alcohol-related accidents during the holidays.

Westmark Hotel manager Kemp Knapman said his restaurant and lounge will offer a free ride home to anyone who has had too much to drink. Designated drivers also get free coffee or non-alcoholic beverage.


Dec. 10, 1962 — Before you Christmas shop for mother, stop and think about who she really is — a busy homemaker with scarcely enough time to complete each day’s chores.

A thoughtful gift that means extra hours to a hard-working housewife is an automatic electric dishwasher.


Dec. 10, 1937 — Alaska weather was clear today, but strong easterly winds whipped across the Interior.

Two weather stations reported temperatures of -40 degrees — Alatna and Fort Yukon.

It was -38 at Dawson, -18 at Barrow and 10 above at Seward this morning.

At the Livengood camp it was -16; Wiseman, -21; Caribou creek (tributary of the Salcha river) -12.
