If Scott Ogan's for it, I'm against it. Vote No on proposition 1.

When this new cable comes into town, will I be able to watch reruns of Barney Miller, Soap, all that good stuff?

About the GCI cable network, my girlfriend gets the first basic cable channels, but she doesn't get CBS, which is free down South if you lived in a place where you could get an antenna, so why do you have to pay for CBS, NBC or ABC when normally it should be a free channel?

Why is GCI taking away some of our best channels from standard service?

I bought a satellite box last year and it's already paid for itself.

GCI gives us a taste of all these channels and all of a sudden if we want to keep good channels we've got to pay over $50 a month?

Lack of social involvement, bad hygiene and bad grades is a stereotype of marijuana.

Coffee is more addictive than marijuana yet we sell it at the high school.

I noticed we have some public figures speaking out against marijuana. Let's outlaw alcohol and see what happens. Let's see how much violence comes from that. Marijuana is a very low profile drug. Vote the way you want to vote but think about the lives ruined by alcohol vs. the lives ruined by marijuana.

How many votes would I need to get to make Alaska an alcohol-free state?

To the disabled veteran who complained about Bush's military performance, what about Clinton - he skipped the country.

I'm a vet. I read Word of Mouth on Thursday night. I think that vet who called in ought to speak for himself. Don't seem to me he polled every vet in the country. Sounds to me like he may be a politician.

I like to shoot target pistols. Many times the range is overcome with rain and wind. We taxpayers paid for a wonderful building for our police department. They should open their shooting range to the public once a week. They could get to know us and we could get to know them.

Why can't the Riverside and Egan traffic light be synchronized with the Loop Road and Egan traffic light? I just get up to speed and the Riverside light turns red.

We went to the Dan Moeller cabin last weekend and I just hope people think about leaving the cabins cleaner.

We would like to think that the prevention of cruise ship pollution is a stand-alone policy and that we should not have to tack it on to another bill.

We have too many tourists coming into our little town and all the germs are left behind with us and the sewer and garbage. We need to cut back on the ships.

I have decided that I would still enjoy riding my ATV at Dredge Lake and if I can't, I don't want any tourists enjoying themselves anywhere around here. And if I have to write letters to every major newspaper to inform the rest of the country that the Wall street Journal was correct in naming Juneau as one of the top 10 worst vacation spots, I will. Please save me the stamp money.
