Here is a sampling of editorial opinions from Alaska newspapers:
HONOLULU - The National Park Service says Hawaii's seven national parks drew 5.1 million visitors in in 2012.
GUATEMALA CITY - Guatemala authorities say the Pacaya volcano near Guatemala City has shot plumes of ash and vapor 2.3 miles (3.7 kilometers) high, while spewing glowing-hot rock.
PORTLAND, Oregon - Magma 2 to 3 miles beneath Oregon's highest peak is nearly solid stuff, sort of like peanut butter kept in a refrigerator, that's not expected to erupt anytime soon, according to a new study.
SIDOMULYO, Indonesia - The ash and debris that Indonesia's Mount Kelud blasted from its belly brought death and misery, and disrupted international air traffic. But for many of the millions of people cleaning up in the wake of the explosive eruption, it was also a money earner and a shot of life for their crops.
FORT WAYNE, Indiana - It was the summer of 1966. For the first time, U.S. military planes bomb the North Vietnam capital of Hanoi. Ted Williams would be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. On the radio, the Mamas and the Papas' "Monday, Monday" seemed to be an hourly anthem.
