Word of mouth

Posted: Tuesday, April 18, 2000

The University of Alaska Southeast Vocational Technology Center accrues a collection of junk cars every year. They are an eyesore across from the high school along Egan Drive. I suggest that the tech center has some of its construction technology students build a fence to enclose the cars. Then we won't have to share this annual eyesore.

I want to be one of the people who puts in my two cents to applaud the courage of Aidan and Brenda. I knew Bonnie in high school and I hope to be Aidan's friend in adulthood.

Hey smokers, when you throw your cigarette butts on the ground that is considered littering. It is so sad to see young children, pets and other people step on butts or pick them up. Pick up your own garbage.

Good job to the stores that will be closed on Easter so their employees can be home with their families.

I'm grateful that there aren't any storytellers or poets at the folk festival. There are storytelling festivals and places to go to hear stories and poems. I go to folk festival for the music.

The Alaska Folk Festival in Juneau should not include poetry readings.

I attended the Alaska Folk Festival last week and found it to be a wonderful experience. I think the entire committee did an excellent job of putting together a fine program and a well-organized event. I don't think storytellers and poets fit into the program.

I want to thank Centennial Hall for the donation of colorful engineer tape and sidewalk chalk to entertain kids at the fence. It kept the kids busy and productive so the baby grass could be left alone and develop strong roots for future folk festivals.
