DOT&PF Holds November 30 Earthquake Caption Contest
If roads could talk…what would they say? The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is encouraging Alaskans to visit its Facebook page and enter its caption contest for the chance to win a generator donated by Associated General Contractors.
The images above show just one of many examples of the role that response teams had in bringing Alaska communities back together after the November 2018 Earthquake. The teams’ work is featured in DOT&PF’s caption contest, which has been taking place on the DOT&PF Facebook page since November 10.
“Comment on our contest posts through November 20 and tell us what you think: if roads could talk…what would they say? The top three comments will be shared with the community for voting on November 22.”
The winner will be announced at DOT&PF’s Facebook Live event on November 26 from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
In honor of the anniversary of the November 2018 Earthquake, DOT&PF is hosting this Facebook Live event to celebrate the work of response teams, local agencies, and the Alaska community. It will recognize initial responses that were critical to bringing communities back together, as well as the continued recovery efforts. The Facebook Live event will feature various speakers, a recovery video, and the announcement of the caption contest winner.

The Marx Bros. Café
Jack Amon and Richard “Van” Hale opened the doors of the Marx Bros. Café on October 18, 1979; however, the two had already been partners in cuisine for some time, having created the Wednesday Night Gourmet Wine Tasting Society and Volleyball Team Which Now Meets on Sunday, a weekly evening of food and wine. It was actually the end of the weekly event that spurred the name of the restaurant: hours after its final service, Amon and Hale were hauling equipment and furnishings out of their old location and to their now-iconic building on Third Street, all while managing arguments about equipment ownership, a visit from the police, and quite a bit of wine. “If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘A Night at the Opera” starring the Marx Brothers, that’s what it was like,” Hale explains.
