Stirred from slumber by loud fog horns

Posted: Tuesday, September 18, 2007

I foolishly set my alarm clock for 4:45 a.m. a few nights ago - I did not need too. I was jolted from my slumber at 4:25 a.m. by a blast of a tour ship fog horn. This was coincidentally ironic because just prior to falling asleep, I read where John Stone, Juneau port director, is pushing for more tour ship berths, and the city wants to peddle some bonds (a paltry $50 million).

Sound off on the important issues at

While I am not against the idea, I wonder if the port director has any authority over ship hours of operation?
