'Through the Storm Towards the Sun'

Tue, 11/24/2015 - 9:07pm
In the late 1930s, when she turned 10, Carol Feller Brady - born Alice Carolyn James, the youngest of 11 children - entered the part of her life described in her memoir as "the storm." And though she's been through more than it seems possible for one person to survive, her story is remarkable not only for the trauma she endured, but also for the way that, now 88, she's managed to come into the "sun" of her life, finding and giving love in spite of all she went through.

Easing into the holidays with community markets

Tue, 11/24/2015 - 9:07pm
The day after Thanksgiving is what they call Black Friday. On this day there are places in our country where combat shoppers in a buying frenzy trample each other and get into fights over 2-dollar toasters. People get hurt, sometimes killed, every year. Instead of driving everyone off it's become a sort of macabre advertising. Alternatively, the day after Thanksgiving is also, 'Buy Nothing Day,' an international movement for people who refuse to shop at all on Black Friday.

Juneau's Hidden History: Cope Park

Tue, 11/24/2015 - 9:07pm
The Cope Park I remember growing up in the 1980s and '90s is very different from the memories someone might have if they grew up in the '50s, '60s and '70s. I remember a playground, swing set, old scary bathrooms, tennis courts, and a rundown ball field. Currently the ball field is now a fenced dog park, the bathrooms have been rebuilt at a new location, and the swing set is gone. The city plans to improve the area in 2016.

On Writing: The Name of the Sentence

Tue, 11/24/2015 - 9:07pm
Our word "sentence" comes from the Latin word for "opinion." In late 14th-century Middle English, Chaucer describes a theology student at Oxford as "full of high sentence," that is, full of solemn moral pronouncements. We see that meaning carried forward in the word "sententious," a pejorative term for an opinionated, moralistic jerk. We see that meaning too in the word's penal denotation: as our friends Byron Benedict and Lowell Ford know, a "sentence" can be a very definite judicial pronouncement.
