I would like to thank all the volunteers, including Tim Hall and sons, who groomed the cross-country ski trails in the Valley. Great skiing is one of the reasons why I love winters in Juneau. Thanks for your skills and gift of time.
I'd just like to say I stand in support of Joseph Frederick with his fight for the First Amendment and his rights against Juneau-Douglas High School and the police department.
I recently read an article regarding the naming of places in Juneau. It was suggested that family names not be used lest some people might be offended if they were omitted. Perhaps we should turn to the Tlingit community and ask for their input, as they were the original inhabitants of Juneau.
