Ellen Carrlee, left, curator of collections for the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, and Alysia McLain, a museum intern, clean lichen, moss and dirt from a totem pole called "Harnessing the Atom" on Thursday. The pole, carved by Juneau resident Amos Wallace in the 1960s, was taken down Wednesday after it started to lean because of rot. The pole will be refitted with a new base before being put back up.
