Anchorage deaf awareness week is just that, a time to bring to the forefront the shining abilities and wonderful gifts that are abound within the hard of hearing community. Sharon Miranda is the Coordinator of Deaf Supports at Hope Community Resources in Anchorage and says “the only difference between deaf people and hearing people is that deaf people hear with their eyes, not their ears.”
The APD has confirmed that officers are carrying Kloxxado, a form of naloxone in an email.
Naloxone is a drug that is used to prevent opioid overdoses, Kloxxado is administered through a nasal spray and blocks the effects of an opioid overdose.
An Anchorage woman built a colorful, lighted igloo with seats inside so neighborhood kids could have a place to wait for the school bus. Amy Cuaresma built the igloo just because she likes to be busy, and it’s something she says she enjoys and does every year. Schoolkids seem to love the lighted oasis in the otherwise dark morning neighborhood streets.
It's a fun and colorful way for kids to wait for the bus on those cold Alaska mornings.
