Never boring
I like the Boys and Girls Club because there is always something to do.

Hear him roar
As I'd really gotten a kick out of Perseverance's recent production of "Gypsy," I dove into Michael Christenson's review of the play head first, hoping to relive my exciting moments of music and laughter and fun! Things started great and I remember thinking "Oh Man! This guy can even read and write!"

Homebound revelers entertaining more
Palmer Republican Rep. Scott Ogan's measure to standardize bar closures is designed to thwart those sly fellows who travel to other communities that stay open later as well as to impede this culinary "recipe for disaster." Our own police captain states it is "something worth considering," albeit "Juneau has not experienced a large spike in assaults and domestic violence between 2-5 a.m." On the other hand "police have seen an increase in accidents that could be alcohol-related." Well, are they or not?

Struggle for survival
Amid the ongoing debate over abortion rights, it was gratifying to find at least one participant who recognizes the essential class nature of the question: "Heidersdorf, of Alaskans For Life, said he hopes to persuade lawmakers to continue an effort to deny state funding to poor women for most abortions." (Empire, Jan. 23)

Making sense of '17 years of profitability'
Recently the Empire published a Sealaska article saying, "For the last 17 years Sealaska has enjoyed financial profitability." Our reasoning was this: Since the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act passed in Congress, almost 20 years had gone by and shareholders never received a dividend from Sealaska.

Thanks to Cross for the memories
Among the many reasons for not missing Perseverance's production of "Gypsy" is that Karen Cross' performance as Mama Rose will be her Juneau swan song.

Go find winter - safely
Today's re-opening of Eaglecrest renews the sense of season that has been stunted by the mysterious nonappearance of winter. Never before had the ski area lost both December and January to lack of snow.
