Thank you

Unique decorations mark communal holiday
Our views of the landscape are filtered through our own hopes and desires. The sight of all that uncut timber makes strong men weak, while the limited wilderness still available makes others cry. The welcoming waves call many to sea, while the secure hold of Terra Firma is the greatest relief another can feel.

'Vertical Limit' succeeds in ropes-and-crampons genre
"Vertical Limit" opens with an eight-minute red-rock gripper. It's the vertiginous start of what one wag has called "The Perfect Climb" and it's certainly more edge-of-the-seat than the watery blue-screen storm flick.

Judge: Meetings can be taped
The state's Open Meetings Act applies to Juneau's ongoing flight-noise mediation sessions and allows them to be tape-recorded, a judge decided Wednesday. But whether the meetings will continue is up in the air.

Prices falling at the pump
The price of regular unleaded gas has dropped 5 cents a gallon at Douglas Depot. Is that the first swallow to reach Capistrano, or just a lone duck flying the wrong way?

Resist the temptation to point fingers
Happy day? Or sad day? For some, the Tuesday night U.S. Supreme Court decision was a victory; for others, a defeat.

May never vote again
I do not agree with everything Vice President Al Gore stands for. After listening to the decision of the five Republican Supreme Court members who quickly sided with George Bush on Tuesday, I am wondering if, other than some of the Alaskan issues, I will ever vote again in this country.

The Supreme Court and the Florida vote
Editorial excerpts on the Supreme Court ruling in the Florida vote...

Prepare to be tested
Now that it seems Vice President Al Gore has tucked his tail between his legs and is about to roll over and give up, I'd like to say that as a longtime Green Party member and Ralph Nader supporter, I'm sick and tired of having Democrats tell me that Nader caused Gore to lose.

Word of Mouth
Thanks to Leo and Alice Jones for their beautiful Christmas tree in Auke Bay. My fisherman husband says it's a real beacon when out on the water in a boat. We on the land like it, too.

Can't help but wonder
For the past month I have been more or less preoccupied by the nation's presidential election. Now it would seem to be over as we enter a realm of deep political division.

Bush, Gore invite nation to walk bipartisan path
Perhaps it would be too optimistic to believe politics as usual ended last night. But the concession speech of Vice President Al Gore and the response from Texas Gov. George W. Bush should put politics as usual on hold for a while. We hope it will be a long while.
