Seniors offered flu shots next week
To prevent serious complications and death, everyone who is 65 years of age or older is warned to get their influenza vaccine next week. In fact, Alaska's Committee on Immunizations recently broadened its recommendations to people over 50.

FYI

Weekend Best Bets
It's a great week for live entertainment. There are just two chances left to see "Much Ado About Nothing," at 8 p.m. tonight or Saturday at McPhetres Hall. Last weekend they had good attendance and some shows sold out. You might want to go early to get your tickets.

Love is enough, if done in the proper spirit
Is it enough simply to love? According to the Christian tradition it is. All three of the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) recount Jesus' response to the question, "Which is the first of all commandments." His response? To love God with your whole heart, soul and strength (from Dt. 6:4 Shema Israel) and to love neighbor as self (from Lev. 19:18). The early Church as well as Christianity throughout the centuries had maintained the importance of this central pronouncement of Jesus to love God and neighbor.

Electoral College serves us best
I was disturbed by your editorial suggestion on Nov. 8 that the Constitution be changed to eliminate the Electoral College. Residents of the Great Land more than most should realize the value of full governmental representation by both population numbers and the area occupied by those residents. Accordingly, we Alaskans should recognize the value of the Electoral College.

A reminder: At-large districts are unconstitutional
I read with some incredulity the article in Tuesday's paper regarding Sen. Kim Elton's thoughts on Juneau returning to a two-member at-large legislative district in the upcoming redistricting process.

Peace and Quiet defends public process
After a vigorous initiative campaign to limit noise from flightseeing, representatives of the Peace and Quiet Coalition agreed to join flightseeing operators and representatives of the cruise industry, small business, conservation groups, the CBJ, U.S. Forest Service and Cruise Control to try to mediate a solution. The fight over flightseeing noise has become louder each year, and the Peace and Quiet Coalition believed it would be in the interest of all Juneau residents to join the mediation process set up by the city and the Forest Service.

Public welcome, but law doesn't apply
I am a professional mediator who specializes in environmental disputes. I was asked by the Forest Service and by CBJ to help get a fresh start on tackling flightseeing noise issues in Juneau. Mediation is an at

Unintended consequences
You don't have to be a lawyer or legislator to understand the intent of the Alaska Open Meetings Act. But you may have to be a hired mediator or city manager to misunderstand it.

Veterans made free elections possible
With all the howling that accompanied this past election, most Americans were hoping it would all just be OVER on Tuesday night. What a nightmare ... two long years and $3 billion worth of hype later, and we STILL don't know who will be president. But let's forget about this election for just a second.
