Thanks for establishing Toby Lee foundation

Sound off on the important issues at

On April 18, Juneau lost Tobias Lee to injuries sustained in a violent avalanche outside the Mt. Baker ski area in Washington state. He was 25. His brother Elijah wrote: "I could tell you of the safety precautions that were taken prior to the avalanche, but it is a moot point. Death happens. Tob will forever be remembered for his infectious smile and carefree style of living. He was bold, brash, stubborn and thick. He was sensitive, kind, generous and loving. He was so many things to so many people."

His parents, Chava and Richard, established the Tobias B. Lee Foundation "to remember that life happens. We are reminded that Toby never shied away from living it to the fullest. For him, skiing in the back country was part of what made him Toby - and that is what we are honoring - that zest for living."

SEADOGS would like to say Thank You to the family for their donation to the team, their caring and thoughtfulness. Their donation will assist the team's three avalanche dogs and three in training with needed equipment "so others may live."

Thank you for another basketball tournament

Kudos to Juneau-Douglas High School's Sandi Wagner and Karen Boddy, along with the many volunteers and staff for their part in carrying out another successful holiday basketball tournament. Congratulations to all the participating players, coaches and parents of the home and visiting teams; the referees who worked the tournament; and the JDHS Dance Team. The fans who attended these games enjoyed good basketball, a high level of sportsmanship and some fine entertainment.

The Princess Capital City Classic is a wonderful event that allows our community to gather together during the holidays and welcome others to the capital city.

Princess Cruises is proud to be associated with this great Juneau tradition.
