The gentleman from Minnesota who is afraid of all the trees and bears in Juneau should go back to Minnesota, where he may feel safer surrounded by the strip malls and development that exterminated the major forests and wildlife like bears and wolves in the Lower 48. The citizens of Juneau are smart enough to come up with creative solutions to our problems that do not involve simply destroying the natural beauty and wildlife that make Juneau such a great place to live.
