Weekend Best Bets
Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day, as the saying goes, but Juneau really does have a generous number of folks of Irish descent. There's a nice selection of St. Patrick's Day activities in store, and many are family oriented.

Life's about to spring from gloomy March
It's a typical March day. The rain is sheeting sideways and the wind is blowing 20 knots. The sky is gray with dark clouds roiling over the peaks and it looks like spring will never arrive.

Thank you

Juneau Color: Watching 91 years of our history
Katherine Messerschmidt Shaw readily summons up the heavenly odors and "the delicious cookies my father made: Lady fingers, macaroons, fruit bars and doughnuts. We would put a string of doughnuts around our necks and play street games, sharing the doughnuts with our friends."

Local inspiration
I thank Mike Sica for writing about Heather Barr's leadership and advocacy in New York for the betterment of the mentally ill. To learn of a young adult born and raised in Alaska working for the right's of the mentally ill is a dream come true. Ms. Barr's parents must be very proud. I remember living in Juneau in a time when mental illness services were nonexistent, and a state psychiatrist who may or may not be able to see you and when the stigma for the mentally ill was humiliation.
