Can SE charts be trusted?
Compare a waterway to a bathtub filled with water. Place sand, pebbles and rocks at the bottom to represent ocean-floor obstructions, and then add a nail sticking up like a submerged pier.

As the House Finance Committee began assembling the 2002 state operating budget Saturday, members talked more about a long-range fiscal plan "accidentally" than they have on purpose for the past 60 days, said Rep. Eric Croft.

Divers work to map a better water rescue
When one of her fellow divers emerged from Twin Lakes, Annette G.E. Smith said he looked more like a monster than a man.

Fair-minded statesman
This is truly a sad day for Alaska. Hugh Malone was one of the finest legislators in the state's short history. Not only was he a brilliant conceptual thinker, he was a statesman of the highest order.

A proposal for peace and quiet
Winter is nearly over, and the quiet days of watching the sun rise on Gastineau Channel will soon be replaced with scenes of a harbor crowded with cruise ships. Floatplanes and helicopters full of tourists will fan out in a 50-mile area, from Taku Glacier to Eagle Glacier. For some, the cacophony of summer is the sound of a seasonal paycheck. For others, the sounds of summer are incessant noise that drives them from their homes and back yards.

Malone: Father of permanent fund
The paternity of the Alaska Permanent Fund might be settled, with the death of Hugh Malone.

Government peep hole
The bill introduced by Rep. John Coghill, requiring additional information to be dispensed under pain of liability, for women, (not necessarily moms) requesting abortions. Yet again we write laws that focus upon the poor, who can not escape to the Lower 48 to take care of problems.

Malone without peer in understanding grassroots
The Malones lived down the street from us in Kenai and our daughter, Mary, babysat for Hugh and Chris. We served together on the Kenai City Council and the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly. His father, Frank, a surveyor, was a first-generation American from Northern Ireland, and his mother, Kate, worked for the court system and was from a politically active Irish-American family in Philadelphia.

SE Alaska Avalanche Center saves lives, is worthy of support
Remember the last time someone died in a bear attack in Juneau? If you can't, there's nothing wrong with your memory. Despite ample provocation, a bear hasn't killed a human here in decades.

Hugh Malone, 1944-2001
In an era when some partisans arise each morning as motivated to discredit their political opponents as to accomplish good, it is difficult for an office-holder to be respected on both sides of the proverbial aisle.

The vernal equinox and dust-bunny roundup
Ah, spring! The sun has returned, spreading hope and daylight into the corners of our hearts and homes. I love the part about my heart, but am horrified by what is showing up in the corners of my home. Incredibly ornate and ghostly spider works, for one thing, are appearing and as the new weak rays of sunshine wander around the house, they drive large herds of dust bunnies from sanctuary. It's time to fire up the vacuum and see how true the hepa filter really is.
