Finding a faster ferry
In a few years, a Juneau resident might board a ferry at 7 a.m. and arrive in Ketchikan at 5 p.m., in time for dinner. And traveling nearly the entire length of the Panhandle could be an option almost every day, year-round.

Lawmakers hear exit exam sparring
For most of his life, Juneau sophomore Ryan DeLoach has struggled with a learning disability, which he has coped with by using calculators and spell checkers in school.

Computing the worth of $6 million
Third- and fourth-graders quietly file into the computer lab of Gastineau Elementary at 9:15 a.m. and sit down to practice their keyboarding - what an older generation called touch-typing. Many students wear headphones plugged into the computer.

Repair, replacement of school computers lags
The costs of maintaining computers in the Juneau public schools must come out of a budget that doesn't provide enough textbooks.

Coast Guard cautious about new regulatory role

Into The Woods: It's late - Don't make me come up there
