Owned by Steven Downer, winner of the World Tea Expo's 2011 Tea Infusion Challenge, Sipping Streams Tea Company hand-blends and brews an aromatic complement of caffeinated, herbal, and ornamental drinkables. Liquid nirvana seekers can pore over a catalog of loose-leaf teas available in an aromatic rainbow arcing from white King of Silver Needles ($21.25 for 2 oz.) and green Imperial Mao Feng ($26.50 for 4 oz.) to black organic Darjeeling ($19 for 4 oz.) and chocolaty Northern Serenity ($18.25 for 4 oz.) varieties. Crystalline kettles ($30 each) can house nostalgic wintry dioramas or showcase the transformation of art teas ($20 for 8 bundles) from lifeless leaves into aquatic blooms. Sipping Streams' eclectic menu of light bites lets tea tipplers pair their libations with Eastern- and British-inspired treats. Inundate mouths with a bite-sized barrage of steamed red-bean-paste buns ($2.50 each), or delicately nibble cucumber sandwiches ($4 each), which combine crunchiness and elegance, much like a Fabergé egg fashioned from potato chips.

Chance and Roxie Mayberry take any opportunity to get out of the studio and into vibrant real-world scenes. As the duo behind Anchorage's Mayberry Studio, they shoot families as they slice down the slopes or bond with animals, and as instructors at Alaska Photography Academy, they take students deep into wild local landscapes. Photo safaris adventure to such destinations as Matanuska Glacier and Hatcher Pass, with some shots even accomplished from the backs of sturdy ATVs. Although these intensive excursions are open to all, more experienced clickers can pursue more in-depth classes or private lessons. No matter the level, courses emphasize practical, professional-grade tips and avoid technical jargon and risqué language such as "flash."

In 1946, just after the end of World War II, Norman Brown hand-set the type and hand-fed a Linotype press to roll out the first 16-page issue of the Anchorage News. Over the following decades, the publication changed its moniker to the Anchorage Daily News to account for its shift to daily delivery and stocked its trophy cabinet with two Pulitzer Prizes for Public Service, cementing its regard in the minds of Alaskans.

Today, the newspaper lands on more than 50,000 doorsteps each week. The freshly printed folds contain the latest local news, from political updates on the debate over offshore drilling to explanations of how the school system is developing a new math curriculum to help children count past 20 without using each other’s fingers and toes. The sports section keeps up with the Aces’ triumphs, whereas the outdoors pages cover the Iditarod and the latest goings-on at Denali National Park. Readers can also gain insight into the business world, challenge their outlooks with editorials, and peruse entertainment articles before deciding to go see a local improv group or movie.

At their 1,000-square-foot studio, the photographers snap images of families while drawing upon skills honed in photography classes taken around the world and on a lunar module. Lynn and Delamour also capture poses in their scenic backyard portrait park to incorporate natural lighting and dramatic woodscapes. After their sessions, the team helps patrons pick an image for a deskworthy 8”x10” print ($72), snag a pair of 5”x7” prints ($66), or select eight wallet-size pics ($16) that are perfect for gifting to orthodontists. Prints are not limited to one pose.
