A big thank you to all those who reconstructed the lookout in the wetlands. It's nice to see something completed in such a relative short time.
I witnessed a drunk driving accident on the morning of July 4. The teen-age driver was driving at a high speed on an under-maintained dirt road. The car swerved and turned upside down. The driver and a passenger were able to get out and seemed OK except for being drunk. If my dog and I had been walking 15 seconds earlier, we would have been at the spot where the car turned over and I would not have been able to call this message in. Please, don't drink and drive.
Thanks to the group in the Juneau Parade that managed to have music! It sure adds to the festive feel.
