We would like to say thank you to Roger and his friend for giving us a ride in their boat on Saturday from Point Bishop to Point Dupont. You two saved us hours of walking with nasty blisters.

We need the Assembly to pay attention. Putting heliports in the Thane area is not a good idea. Why ruin a hundred people's ways of life? Put the heliport on North Douglas, out next to where the new golf course is planned. Busing tourists there will provide them a stunning look at some gorgeous scenery, and the helicopters can go in any direction from there. There will be very little impact on downtown or on other residential areas.
Exiting the Juneau Art and Humanities Council galleries, I was stopped in my tracks by a small display of incredible photographs. Clay Wertheimer's humble show of black and white images from a family trip to Japan possess wonderful vision. I was stunned to learn that Clay is a middle school student. This Mark Kelly protg is destined for great things, I urge you all to check out Clay's photos.
