Letter: Show respect for vets
Memorial Day is a day for honoring those that gave their lives in service to our country, a day for quiet reflection and thanking those who answered our nation's call in time of war.

Colorful speech -- call it communication on a joy ride
The most efficient way from Point A to Point B may be a straight line, but there is usually a far more interesting scenic route. This is true for many endeavors, not the least of which is communication. You can stick with the facts, or you can enjoy the alleys and side roads of a story with all its delicious details. You get to the same place, but have a nice photo album.

Letter: Lend-Lease memories
I just read about the proposal by the Alaska-Siberia Research Center and our well-known Alaska sculptor, R.T. "Skip" Wallen, to erect a memorial in Fairbanks to honor the men and women who served our nation in the Alaska-Siberia Lend-Lease Program during World War II.

Commission should move on Totem Creek
Juneau is a community that takes great pride in its world-class recreational offerings. One important component, however, is conspicuously missing - a good 18-hole golf course. Juneau, in fact, may be the only community of 30,000 south of the 60th parallel without one.
