I would like to know why an employee of the Auke Bay Lab who is in charge of a multi-million dollar budget, who is currently accused of fraud, is still employed at that lab and not even on suspension. That's a violation of public trust at the very least.

Since they locked the bathroom at Sandy Beach, the users at the park will have to watch for more than just dog droppings.

The city had the great idea of building that skate park out in the valley to keep the youth and the drugs and the alcohol out of downtown and away from tourists, yet they refuse to police it. You could drive by any time and see kids without helmets and beers sitting on the table.

I would like to thank the Douglas Post Office workers for their great, friendly, excellent service.

This is in regards to the article to SEARHC building a new clinic. They may have a lot more people going there than they used to, yet they have a lack of funds. Therefore, they cannot even take care of their clients properly now.

I'd like to give a big thank you to the person who found my keys and turned them in at the Federal Building post office this Saturday.

CBJ's Parks and Rec director should be careful about telling us that we all should have known about the cost overruns at the ice rink budget. A lot of us haven't forgotten about the cost overruns for the Astroturf yet.

Steve Reed should not blame himself or the Empire for the ice rink reporting. Did any one of Juneau's many news sources get the story right? No, because the city wasn't forthcoming with the information.
