Mr. Mayor
Who is he? Dennis Egan was born in Juneau in 1947, the son of Bill and Neva Egan. The Egans were actually residents of Valdez, where Bill Egan, Dennis' father, owned a grocery store. When it came time for Dennis to be born, Neva traveled to Juneau where Bill, an elected representative, was attending a session of the Territorial Legislature.

Cruise industry progress
After years of contentiousness and mistrust, it is important to acknowledge the positive steps that appear to have come out of Monday's meeting between Gov. Tony Knowles and representatives of the cruise ship industry.

Give the system a chance to work
Having remained publicly silent for these past three-plus years, I finally find that I must raise my voice about the "controversial" proposed H&H Management project at Carroll Way-South Franklin downtown.

Showcasing the capital city

I want to express my gratitude to AML for the opportunity to be a part of such an auspicious event that was informative, stimulating and socially rewarding.

ADEC's record is evident from their Web site list of "impaired waters" from seafood processing pollution.

Residents in Middle East deserve peace with justice
Alan Schorr and I appear to agree: Violence is destructive and does not yield social peace. The toll to human life in Israel-Palestine due to violence leaves empty homes, blind and maimed lives, deeply imbedded fears, and haunting lifetime psychological scars.
