The ancient trade of bring in new plants
I am in Portland, gathering up the stock for the coming season. The whole nursery business is in frenzy right now, shipping season is in full swing and hundreds of truckloads of exquisite plants from the greatest concentration of growers in the world are heading out of the Willamette Valley in Oregon.

City asks feds for funds to study second crossing
The Juneau Assembly on Monday recommended that Congress reallocate funding to look into a second crossing over Gastineau Channel.

Due to an editing error, the headline "House pitches rewrite of exit exam" in Tuesday's Empire inadvertently dropped the word "bill" from the end of the headline.

Legislature 2001: House pitches rewrite of exit exam
A House committee is pushing a new version of a bill to delay the high school competency exam - a rewrite supporters say closes some loopholes. But critics say the new version unfairly penalizes kids with learning disabilities.

Coalition plots new districts
A coalition of regional Native corporations, unions and environmental groups has submitted a plan to redraw election districts across the state in hopes of protecting rural Native representation.

Juneau's junk car roundup managed to herd together 754 heaps and to barge them away in March. And the Juneau Assembly at its Monday night meeting extended the program for at least one weekend.

Focus on spy plane crew
A meeting Tuesday between U.S. diplomats and the crew of an American spy plane forced to land on a Chinese island is a good first step toward gaining the release of all 24 crew members. The focus should stay on the crew, since any secrets remaining aboard the plane are by now thoroughly blown.

Strong vote in Senate
The following editorial appeared in today's Washington Post: The Senate's 59-to-41 vote in favor of campaign finance reform this week brought an impressive two weeks of debate to a remarkable close. The two weeks were a reminder of what the Senate can accomplish when the members choose - and are allowed by the leadership - to legislate rather than posture. Such events have become the exception in recent years.

Letter: Political, poetic advice
I'm writing to publicly acknowledge Rep. Hudson for pushing for a House caucus to discuss a long-term financial plan for the state. Here's some publicly given, friendly advice on this effort:

My Turn: Good education reform requires funding
Alaska has reached critical mass in its effort to implement a standards-based educational system. It took leadership to turn in this direction under former Gov. Hickel. It took commitment and follow-through from Gov. Knowles to take it to the next level and see it implemented.

Next stop The Hague
The following editorial appeared in today's San Jose Mercury News: Former Yugoslav strongman Slobodan Milosevic is behind bars at last, though not yet in the tank that he deserves. There are standing reservations for him in The Hague, where an international tribunal has indicted him for war crimes in the Balkans.

Providing a consistent view of history
Sunday's articles by Eric Fry about social studies textbooks in the schools were excellent. I really enjoyed them. They did a good job of presenting both sides of the issue. However, since I am from the "old school," I don't understand why we are so reluctant to expect kids to read more outside the classroom.
