Letter: Empire checklist
I am surprised that one of your subscribers feels that the Empire's coverage of local news is inadequate (Thinking Out Loud, June 10). The Empire actually does a great job of reporting local news, not only on the front page but throughout the paper.

It's still 'What so proudly we hail'd'
When overlooked Flag Day unfurls to little fanfare Thursday, there could be no bigger honor than for the radio people to comb their archives and air an old recording of Marian Anderson's stunning "Star-Spangled Banner."

Letter: A holiday for our flag
Two zero zero one, two thousand and one ... no matter how you say it, even a self pronounced futurist such as myself finds it hard to believe we have finally made it to the 21st century.

Get rid of 'up or out'
This editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has looked at the way the armed services promote people and found it seriously flawed. For more than half a century officers and enlisted personnel who have twice been passed over for promotion could consider their careers over.

Unwed, caring fathers should count as much as mothers

Managing wildlife near the airport is complex
Tuesday evening, I attended a meeting sponsored by the Mendenhall Refuge Citizens Advisory Group on airport wetlands issues. I'd read in the paper that Airport Manager Al Heese and also Ralph Sanford would be presenting. So, as an daily dike trail hiker, I was pleased at the opportunity to ask questions about the dike trail at the airport, the bird hazing and other wildlife issues related to the plans for airport improvements.

ANCHORAGE -- The first mountain goat I ever saw just about collided with me. We met at a blind turn of trail, neither aware the other was coming. Black hoofs matched the shiny darkness of curious eyes that stared from a goateed face.
