Typical Juneau small minds. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Dwight Perkins has done a lot for this town. He deserves a chance.

A word of advice to anybody new to Juneau or a young person just getting their license. If you are at a red light and it turns green, don't immediately go like common sense would dictate to you because for some reason in Juneau people run red lights pretty much every time a light turns red. They think if they see it turn yellow, even if they're 500 yards away, that gives them the right to run through it, even if it turns red before they even cross their own side of the intersection.

I am calling because I've misplaced a black duffle bag by the Douglas Breeze-In. The items in the bag are very important to me in fact it's my livelihood. I would greatly appreciate having it returned. My home number is 364-3201.

Would someone tell me where I can take my glass bottles for recycling? I have wandered down to Tonsgard Court to the new location but there aren't any signs. I think many people have been lost since they moved it from DOT.

Regarding the shortage of state workers: Some of us might come back if we could work fewer and/or more flexible hours and if our bosses would treat us nicer.

Concerning the comments in last Wednesday's Word of Mouth and the letter from Nancy Rongstad: Did it ever occur to you that maybe Mr. Perkins is being falsely accused for some reason? What gives you the right to be judge and jury based on a couple of tabloid-type reports in the Juneau Empire?
