It's a joy to talk about names for the new high school ("Give the new school a non-wussified name," by Korry Keeker, Aug. 24 Hooligan) and a relief from so many crises within our state, nation and world.

It's sad to know we can't use names of people because we have so many who have contributed to Juneau, but we do have rooms, a library and field we may be able to name after them.

So with much thought - and it's not used yet - I suggest "Tongass High School" in honor of the Tongass National Forest. In addition, I can envision a Falcon (mascot already chosen) perched majestically on a tree in this forest we must protect, a charge to our future stewards of our land and sea.
