I read the Word of Mouth on Helping Hands not letting the handicapped go into the food program first and I have to disagree because the other day I saw someone go in before us who was unable to walk around very well. I think they are very good and they really help a lot of people, and they do cater to the handicapped.

Too much noise. Garbage bears. Cruise ship pollution. Speeders. Dogs. That sewage treatment plant. Those darn skateboarders. Outlaw the boom boxes. Is this the Word of Mouth column or the Juneau snivelers club?

I find it interesting that the Forest Service is building two new bunk houses with 22 beds each and two 18-car parking lots to house seasonal employees by the weather station up on Back Loop Road. It's such a heavily used public area to build in.

If someone's going to be considerate enough and safe enough to put their signal on before they try to change lanes, don't speed up enough to block them in.

I'm just wondering why there aren't any more Word of Mouths from Sealaska shareholders out there in regards to their finances.

Whoever writes your headlines has struck again. I find it absolutely entrancing that Juneau weather might possibly prevent meteors or a lunar eclipse from happening.

Thanks. As the story explained better than the headline, the question is whether the weather will permit us to SEE the meteors. - Editor

I'm wondering if anybody knows any downtown routes for walking that equal a mile. This is a New Year's resolution.

Saturday night I went to the movies in the valley. Two people were there watching the movie with two crying babies, and a handful of others had ringing cell phones. Please consider the rest of us.

How many dead dogs and cats does it take on the Douglas Highway until people realize that if they live on the road and they have to put their pet out, they need to go out with it?
