Good for Tony challenging President Carter and the "Save Alaska" gang in Washington, D.C., and the East Coast politicians who think Alaska can function with only tourism and government.

Why send a bunch of cops to arrest a couple of little kids for playing music and singing?

We should be grateful for the rain. The fires and the drought are so bad down south people there would like to have just one day of our rain.

I suggest that people check their grocery receipts. I have been overcharged several times recently at different stores.

To the thief at Floyd Dryden Middle School who stole my son's binder on the first day, return it. I worked hard to afford my son's school supplies.

I don't care about the one-cent tax. I don't care about the noise initiative. All I care about is the Mackie Plan. Please let us vote on the Mackie Plan so some of us can afford to get out of here.

There are good people left in this world. I know one of them. She is a single mom and she takes care of her kids and takes care of her friends. She's always there. Keep smiling.

If clearcutting our forests is so great, I wonder why the helicopters don't haul the tourists over to view the vast clearcuts occurring on Admiralty and Chichagof Islands instead of the virgin forests they take the tourists to see now.

To the vandal who broke the antenna on my wife's van, your senseless act did not ruin my wife's day. She shrugged it off and went hiking.

I wash out my garbage can with ammonia that I buy for 99 cents a gallon. It seems to have a good effect on bears. They don't seem to like the smell of it.

We get boxes through our office routinely that I end up throwing away and it doesn't seem like very good recycling. Please call into Word of Mouth if you have any suggestions for me.
