'Pilot error' not always what it seems
I have spent the last several weeks looking up accidents on the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Web site. A couple of things surprised me about the data that I read.

Junker roundup wins OK
If you own a junk car, you can get rid of it during the next five weeks for only 50 bucks, thanks to a city Junkbuster's plan endorsed by a Juneau Assembly work session on Monday.

Corrections

From Addis Ababa to Alaska
Although Mahlet, Eyerusalem and Ashenafi enjoy sledding and building snowmen, they sometimes balk at all the clothing they're required to don before playing in their Tee Harbor yard.

Educators appeal for exit exam delay
Top state education officials today urged a panel of lawmakers to push back the effective date of a high school competency test, saying teachers and students aren't ready for the high-stakes exam.

Ogan holds up natural gas bill
Gov. Tony Knowles and Rep. Joe Green have introduced bills allowing the governor to negotiate a package of deferred taxes and royalties with a developer of a natural gas project.

Up to six inches of fluffy stuff on its way
Although the National Weather Service gave out storm warnings early today, the agency adjusted its predictions by mid-morning.

Storm nearly trips up Cupid
"You got any roses - red roses?" The question rings in the background, registered in a nervously loud male voice, as Wayne Bundy tries to talk on the phone.

GOP budget: Keep status quo, but no extra cash for villages
The Republican majority in the Legislature appears ready to fund most existing state services but little in the way of new or expanded programs, especially those aimed mostly at rural areas.

Head tax to pay for dock, trails
Cruise ship passengers visiting Juneau this summer will spring for some new services and projects for city residents. The Passenger Fee Proceeds Committee met Tuesday to put the final touches on a wish list for fiscal year 2002 that spends $2.57 million out of an expected $2.6 million in revenues.

Legislature 2001: Capitol move bill gets nudge
Two Anchorage Republicans made a pitch to move legislative sessions out of Juneau today, saying the Capitol is too small and unsafe and that most Alaskans don't have access to their representatives in the Legislature.

Briefly

Support for new DIA tribal council
As elders of the Douglas Indian Association, we want to express our unhappiness with the recent letter submitted by Dorothy Zura. She says her "concern" is still for the youth and elderly, but her actions and that of other outgoing DIA council members tell us otherwise.

Go see 'Gypsy'
George Rogers was right (Letter to the Editor, Empire, Jan. 31). Go see "Gypsy!" See Karen Cross before she leaves Juneau.

Hot air by any other name is still hot air
Shame on Jerry Reinwand for trying to bully the Empire into closing Word of Mouth. Mr. Reinwand is a paid lobbyist and a very good one. He makes big money from at least nine different clients, including the alcohol industry in Alaska and one of the unions.

Word of Mouth
Word of Mouth gives readers a forum to express opinions on a variety of issues by telephone. Calls must be limited to one minute and we reserve the right to edit calls for clarity, length and libel. The number to call in 586-4636. Then press 8255 to leave your message.

A good plan for dealing with abandoned cars
Some drivers' relationships with their vehicles may be a love story, but if your clunker becomes a junker, you may not care what can be said about a car that died.

Another side to shellfish farming debate
In recent letters, potential aquatic geoduck farmers have presented a misleading set of facts on the recent aquatic farming debate. The Southeast Alaska Regional Dive Fisheries Association (SARDFA) would like to expose the other side of the issue.

The Clinton indulgences
The following editorial appeared in Tuesday's Washington Post: The more that is learned about some of the pardons former President Clinton granted on his final day in office - particularly the pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich - the more it appears that they constituted a major abuse of the pardon power.

Significant changes proposed downtown
On Monday night, the state Department of Transportation held a very well-attended public meeting for my neighborhood concerning the 10th and Egan intersection, including the Juneau-Douglas bridge.

Folk Festival ahead
In the midst of larger amounts of snow finally falling and winter feeling like it has at last arrived, applications recently have been received to sign up for the annual Alaska Folk Festival, which is a sign of spring ahead.

Short-term needs call for drilling Alaska oil
Hank Lentfer's suggestion (Feb. 2) to keep ANWR's oil in the ground as a strategy to combat global warming is a little like outlawing supermarkets in an effort to help overeaters - in theory it could help achieve the desired result, but at what cost?

Good advice on salmon
It is important that the specific details of the city assembly's wild salmon resolution not become distorted amid the name-calling that has followed.
