Theron McGrew has worked at Providence Alaska Medical Center for the last twelve years. For the past six years he has decorated the cart he pushes through the halls of the hospital with a festive Christmas theme. The humble and dependable Theron started decorating his cart on a whim and when he saw how much joy it brought to the staff and patients, he just kept doing it. With his lighted necklace and rolling Christmas display, Theron is very popular with all the nurses he delivers supplies to and has become somewhat of a reluctant celebrity, which just adds to his charm. His Allgood News is not just the magic of his lighted cart, but the passion of the man pushing the cart.

Melissa Hickman and her husband are remodeling their house in Fairbanks. They were ripping down some old paneling when they discovered some youthful signatures and names on the wall behind the paneling. The name “Katie Ladner ’79,” was written in cursive with a cute little flower along with the names “Chris” (with the ‘S’ missing) and “Mike G.” Melissa put a picture of the names and flower up on the Facebook page, Fairbanks, Alaska, to see if by chance she could find out who the people were 44 years later. And in less than an hour, social media did its thing and Katie was located living in Kingston, Washington. The two have since spoken and made a connection and the home on Birch Hill for Melissa and her family now has a bit of history and a face to go with what was just a name on the wall from long ago.
