Recently I had the privilege of having the JDHS auto shop students help me with my car. What a great operation. I appreciate their hard work. They did a great job.

The Alaska Division of Elections is a first-class outfit. I greatly appreciate the hard work of Lt. Gov. Ulmer and everyone working at the division. They are prompt, courteous and efficient.

Whoever is decorating the Christmas tree across from Fred Meyer has put smiles on everybody's faces. They should be praised and maybe it's the rest of us who should clean it up after the holidays instead of worrying about whether they will.

Now that we have two major ferries broke down and Skagway and Haines both have an option to drive out, I think we need the road. Build it.

The Columbia is in dry dock and now the Kennecott is going to be tied up for a week. Aren't you glad you voted no for the road?

I think David Benton, Lori Telfer and the other individuals who have dedicated long hours and personal resources to making the Point Retreat Lighthouse a national and state treasure should be commended. I can only assume that negative comments are based on misinformation. I urge each resident to call the National Lighthouse Association to find out about the historic restoration that is being done.

Where can I sign up for Sen. Stevens' land grab, along with David Benton?

To any irresponsible duck hunters in the Mendenhall wetlands, keep shooting toward houses, guys. The more you hit, the sooner your privileges will be taken away. The city will have no choice but to close duck hunting in the wetlands.

I'm a registered Democrat but after the wranglings in Florida I'm going to change my affiliation to independent.

The Electoral College vote is unethical. It's the people's vote that should count.

I can't believe school is starting next year on Aug. 22. My kids work. We can't manage that early in the summer. It's going to hurt them, it's going to hurt our family, it's going to hurt industry in Juneau. It's wrong. School should start a little later.

My family and I love Juneau. We are so fortunate to live in such a community of warm, caring people. Merry Christmas, Juneau.
