Weekend Best Bets
Drummers, dreamers and schemers give us almost more entertainment than we can handle this weekend.

Making the most of our second chances
If you have never seen the movie "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray, let me recommend it to you. It is, in my opinion, a very theological movie.

GOP will reap the cooperation it sowed
I am curious about Mr. Edwin Johnson's statement (Empire, Jan. 22) that it was "time for a change in America." Due to the policies of the Clinton administration, the American economy has had the greatest peacetime economic expansion in history, and the record deficits of the Reagan-Bush era have been turned into a surplus. Is he advocating a return to recession and debt?

More roads in the Tongass Forest?
With all the debate whether the Tongass Forest should be included in the "roadless" ruling, I thought about an archaeology project on Heceta Island about 10 years ago.

Education plan pushes accountability, flexibility
The following editorial appeared in today's Miami Herald: As promised, President Bush has sent Congress a serious proposal for reforming public education in America. It's a good, balanced plan with excellent prospects of drawing the bipartisan support that Mr. Bush fervently wants so he can convert a campaign pledge into a tangible achievement.

Eulogy for a friend: A poem without words
This weekend I have to do something I've never done before and something I wish I would never have to do again. I have to give a eulogy for a friend, Jolie Sasseville, who died in a car accident two days after Thanksgiving in Minnesota. A car accident that could have been avoided if the two young men, who are brothers, had followed the law and not run a stop sign.

Minimum wage increase makes good sense for all
The following editorial appeared in today's (Kenai) Peninsula Clarion: In one of the first acts of the new legislative session, Gov. Tony Knowles presented his proposal to increase the state's minimum wage to $6.40 an hour. ... It is an idea whose time has not only come, but is long overdue.

Smaller cuts, niche markets could help timber
Having been fortunate enough to reach an age approaching senility while still breathing, I have been able to accumulate a vast store of opinions, the majority of which are probably either ill-advised or just plain wrong. The benefit of the foregoing, however, is that I don't have to clutter my mind with the opinions of the others (New York Times, Wall Street Journal, et. al.).

Beijing's self-destruction
The following editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: The suicide attempts of five Chinese in Tiananmen Square are a direct response to Beijing's brutal repression of the outlawed Falun Gong spiritual movement over the last 18 months.
