Letter: A blessing, not a curse
In response to Tom Buzzel's article and others that have appeared in the last few days, most people would give up everything they have to come and live in a place where the possibility of seeing a bear is an everyday reality. Having grown up here in Juneau, I love the fact that the wilderness is literally at my front door. It is a blessing, not a curse.

Letter: Shooting bears will save people's lives
Cows are sacred in India. Are bears sacred in Juneau? The recent steps taken to be more benevolent to them suggests they are. They belong in the wild, not in our populated community.

My Turn: Use abuse information to clarify, not confuse
This is a response, from a single mother, to the article printed on June 12 by Jim Scholz entitled "Look at Full Spectrum of Family Violence."

Letter: Bears have no value
What a tempest is brewing in our town, with specialists stridently proclaiming the latest in bear management, experts yearning to make the front page with their pronouncements, noted authorities issuing tome-like proclamations and ad hoc committees giving somber advice, as though the general public was some brainless mass!

Editorial: The Microsoft appeal
The impressive decision Thursday by a unanimous D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals is being portrayed by many as a big win for Microsoft. That's true in one sense; the threat of a breakup has been averted - at least for now.

Editorial: The odd couple, R.I.P.
Jack Lemmon, the other half of one of Hollywood's most endearing couples, has died. That's the kind of news that leaves a collective lump in America's throat, which is not at all surprising because this extraordinarily talented two-time Oscar winner had the uncanny ability to bring a little bit of each of us to the screen.

My Turn: Will anyone else learn from my mistake?
After nine months of being away from home for my first year at college, I was more than ready to come back to Juneau for the summer. I missed my friends, family and even Juneau. With no school to worry about, a good job to go to every day and numerous people to spend time and catch up with, the summer was certainly a promising one.

Fish, bears and cheechakos
In 1975, I married an Alaskan game guide. He was working for Don DeHart out of Slana. During the seven years we were married, I learned a lot about Alaskan wildlife.

Fish Report
King salmon fishing in the Juneau area stayed about the same last week, taking an average of 20 hours to land a keeper. The five-year average is 20 hours and last year it took 25 hours to land a king salmon.

From Pelican to Hoonah a stroke at a time
"Weight doesn't matter," said Larry Fanning, trying to interest me in a seven-day, 70-mile kayak trip. "We can take anything we want as long as it fits into the kayak," he said.
