On Saturday I accidentally left my wallet on a bench in the Nugget Mall. A big thank you to the honest girls who turned it in to the Nugget Outfitter. I had it back before I knew it was missing.

Now that progress reports have arrived in the mail, I think it's time for Floyd Dryden to start up the homework hotline. As a working single parent I need to know what my child has for homework each night.

To Kmart, I would like to see the staff control the unsupervised kids that are in their store playing with the toys and running around. Parents should be teaching kids to respect other people's stuff and not to cut in front and grab things people are looking at to buy. Kmart is not a babysitting drop-off.

As someone who followed the ice rink proposal fairly closely, I was never under the impression that the allocation of the sales tax would pay for the entire facility. I was confused by the Empire reporting on that issue.

I'm calling to remind people of manners. I gave a baby shower and the recipient never said thank you or sent a note. My neighbor had a get-together so we could meet people in the neighborhood, and nobody said thank you.

I'm new to Juneau, but isn't the speed limit 40 from the Douglas bridge north on Egan Drive until you get to the 55 mph sign?

The vote on proposition 2 should be annulled and a criminal investigation should be done.

Now that the road versus ferry vote is over for the time being, I hope Murray and his supporters will not be lobbying against ferry services for Juneau, like they did the last legislative session.

To the person who is tired of people calling about parking in handicapped spaces and says s a lot of people with handicapped plates who are not handicapped, consider that the handicapped person is difficult to move and the person driving has to leave them home alone and desires to get back as quickly as possible.

To the person who called in about Chapel by the Lake, the sign that was put up was not a political sign, it was a community sign.

I'll tell you why there aren't substitutes in our school districts: The pay isn't enough and you have to pay $66 to get a background check, more to get fingerprinted and more depending on the outcome of your TB test. If the district wants subs, it needs to pay for this process.

What happened to the plastic bags our newspapers used to come in?

I'd like to ask parents to watch your children on their scooter bikes. Children are crossing the streets in the middle of traffic, out of crosswalks, and are being extremely unsafe
