success of the Treadwell Arena clearly shows that the families of Juneau are hungry for the possibility of more healthy and productive activities for kids and adults. I think this town would benefit immensely from turning the empty Kmart building into either an indoor waterpark-swimming pool (they have something similar in Whitehorse I hear) or a fine arts academy. Either venue would provide alternate and enjoyable activities for Juneauites during the long stretches of prohibitive weather that we experience throughout the year as well as enriching the minds and bodies of our youth.
