Outta here
While there may be a number of reasons you might be leaving a job, there's really only one way to handle the situation when you're walking out the door: professionally.

Why were my reps missing?
Regarding the remarks by Mr. Somerville, yes, they could be taken as a personal assault. They could also be taken in the context that he said they were made, simply an effort to lighten an otherwise tense situation. A situation brought about by the lack of representation or comments that were scheduled to take place by the very Natives missing from the meeting.

Teach kids to make right choices
I wanted to send my appreciation to the writers and editors of the Hooligan for finally coming out with a paper geared towards opinion and entertainment.

Of the two choices, I agree that Thunder Mountain High School is a better fit than Capital High. Many commentaries expressed the importance of correlating the high school name to its locality and reflect the community to which it belongs, and Thunder Mountain is a good match.

No need for more fire starters
I opened the Juneau Empire insert called "Hooligan" for the first time on Thursday, Nov. 2. The first article by Korry Keeker was an absolute shocker; this is the sickest thing I have read in the 47 years I have lived in the Juneau area. After finishing the article, I closed the pages and threw it into the fireplace where it belongs.

The 'F' word
Webster's dictionary defines "poison" as "a substance which has inherent tendency to destroy life or impair health."

Don Young eats crow
"I think a lot of people are going to be extremely disappointed on the other side Wednesday," Young said at his campaign headquarters. "If not, you know, I can live with it. I've been there before. I was 22 years in the minority, I can be in the minority again. Because I'm just as effective there as I am in the majority.
