Avoid simplistic solution
In Peace and Quiet Coalition representative Kim Metcalfe's My Turn column, she is enthusiastic about moving helicopter operations to the Mendenhall Glacier Recreation Area. This would "remove flightseeing noise from the residential areas." Her conclusion is wrong, as half of Juneau's population lives in the valley between Egan Drive and the Mendenhall Glacier. What occurs in the recreation does affect us.

Be fair to seniors
CBJ Assembly members, working through elected and hired CBJ officials, are once more, seriously attempting to reduce benefits currently awarded to senior citizens.

Cold war for the Caspian
The following editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: Iran's relations with Russia have been gradually improving since the collapse of the Soviet Union, and they bode to become even warmer.

Tranquilize, move Democrats
Perhaps the Mayor's Ad-hoc Bear Committee can get the Department of Fish and Game to tranquilize the amazing Kim Metcalfe-Helmar and her fellow downtown Democrats and relocate them to a different environment. I suggest moving them to ANWR.

Lessons from Malone's life
The tragic death of Douglas resident Hugh Malone while traveling in Italy reminds us of the qualities that make him a special figure in Alaska history. Hugh was a six-term Democratic member of the state House of Representatives from the Kenai Peninsula, speaker of the House, and commissioner of Revenue. But it's what he did in those positions that is really important:

Buyer beware, use common sense
I just wanted to warn the good citizens of Juneau. It appears that we have a very real and very dangerous presence among us. One that threatens to rip open the very fabric that holds our tight-knit community together. An evil so sinister that it almost caused me to call Word of Mouth! This evil comes disguised in the form of unscrupulous real estate agents!
