Get rid of 'up or out'

For more than half a century officers and enlisted personnel who have twice been passed over for promotion could consider their careers over.

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.

Good use of head tax
Congratulations and thanks are in order to Kim Kiefer and the folks at the City and Borough Parks and Recreation Department.

The new trash bins are a nifty design from Canada that have frustrated the best scavenging efforts by bears in Kluane, Banff and other bear hot spots.

Unwed, caring fathers should count as much as mothers
The following editorial appeared in Wednesday's Miami Herald: Just in time for Father's Day, the Supreme Court has said that unwed fathers who bring up their offspring don't count as much as mothers.
