A christening - or not?

Posted: Tuesday, January 14, 2003

In the Sunday Empire, Publisher Don Smith gave me and another individual a "thumbs down" for "christening" the new Treadwell Arena. Publisher Smith may have a point, although it is difficult to ascertain precisely what is driving him in regards to his political commentary.

So everyone knows, the "christening" was not a christening at all, at least as I understand that term. Instead, another individual and I put on our ice skates and zipped around the new rink for approximately eight minutes on Christmas Eve.

In addition to having permission to try out the new rink, the interim city manager was informed of the activity prior to the skate. Am I missing something here or is this another example of dysfunctional politics in Juneau?

Maybe we should assign a reporter to dig out what's really going on with this matter. Come on, Mr. Publisher, let's ferret out the truth. We need to get to the bottom of this so we can inaugurate the rink in a few short weeks without a whiff of scandal.

Looking forward to talking with you on the record, I am,

Joe Geldhof
