Dog leash rules on park trails

Are Juneau Park Rules just a farce? Do park rules mean anything? Should dogs be allowed to run free to attack anything they want even though trails are clearly posted to keep your dog on a leash? One of today’s leash rule violations put me, an 80 year old visitor to Juneau, on the ground trying to keep two fighting dogs apart. Yes, my dog was leashed. But, can you believe it? A visitor taking a stroll on this beautiful Juneau park trail and ending up knocked to the ground because people don’t leash their dogs. Small thing? Dogs are meant to run free? Juneau Parks are for Juneau Citizens? What? Why? So, I didn’t get hurt too bad but I can tell you, I won’t walk a dog in a Juneau park again. However, I just can’t understand how people can be so trivializing of park rules. It’s rude and dangerous, folks.

Letter: A state income tax is fair and equitable

The courage and integrity of our legislators will be tested. Last year they failed to step up to the plate. Our courageous governor had the fortitude to do so. The time has come for Alaskans and those who work here to pay for the services received. Read more
