Opinion

Standing on the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge some years back, I watched in wonder as tens of thousands of caribou, many with newborn calves, swept over the tundra. I listened as they splashed across a river, chanting grunts and bleats, their hooves clicking like castanets. A caribou symphony of life.

Latest Opinion

Submit a My Turn/Letter

Letters should not exceed 250 words, and My Turn columns are limited to 700. Submissions must include the writer’s name, hometown, phone number and a sentence identifying the writer’s credentials, including any jobs or affiliations pertinent to the discussion. 

The Empire will edit submissions for length, clarity, grammar and libelous content. The newspaper does not publish copies of letters sent to third parties. It does not run petitions signed by multiple people on the opinion page; instead it runs opinion pieces by no more than two writers. 

The Empire prints as many letters as possible, but is unable to print all of them. Those that are printed represent the range of letters that are received.

The Empire only publishes one letter or My Turn a month per writer. This ensures that no one monopolizes a discussion. 

The letters, My Turns, syndicated columns, cartoons and guest editorials do not represent the Empire’s views, but those of the writers, artists and newspapers that produced them. 

Send letters and My Turns to editor@juneauempire.com.
