I'm impressed at the level of hospitality that people of Alaska seem to have... It seems as though you're willing to help out people who are moving to your state. I live in Minnesota, and you wouldn't get any help from people here even if you were starving.

I could never live anywhere but Alaska.
You guys talk about all the crime, murder, rape, sex offenders...
I don't see any crime where I live.
I have been to other states.. and I must say, the people here in Alaska are so friendly. I walk through Freds and their is no way I could ever go there and not have people I do not even know say hello, or start a conversation.
Alaska is laid back, the people here are great.
I just do not understand what you are talking about when you mention all types of crime, murder, robbery, rape... I totally enjoy living here and we do not ever lock our doors, nor have we ever. We have never had a problem.

Anchorage is not a safe place. I have lived all over the state and the Southeast. Since moving to Anchorage in 1996 I have seen the town spiral down. People fled to Eagle River or the Valley. Just look at the traffic leaving town after 5pm

Housing is also less expensive in the valley. That could be a reason too.

I have a strong desire to move to Alaska, perhaps Kenai, Anchorage, Fairbanks or elsewhere.

I am of minority descent and have school-age children to consider in the equation.

Which city(s) in Alaska are the most un-biased to live in for minorities? Jobwise, housing and less crime as well.

I'm considering moving up AK to work in education. Any thoughts on working in this sector? I work in special ed and regularly see positions posted.

Thanks
