Civil Air Patrol honors regional members
The Juneau Squadron of the Alaska Wing celebrated the 59th anniversary of the Civil Air Patrol on Dec. 1 with a live radio broadcast from the state capital.

Chanukah: Using light to drive away darkness
As the winter solstice approaches and we begin our slow climb back to the light, Jews in Juneau and around the world begin the celebration of Chanukah, the Festival of Light. Chanukah lasts eight days and begins on the eve of the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev. Chanukah is the Hebrew word for dedication and refers to the historical basis for the holiday.

Thank you

Thank you

Weekend Best Bets
What Juneau needs to spice up the recreation and entertainment now is a good snow storm. In the meantime we're at least getting sun and stars.

O'Neill choice reassuring
The following editorial appeared in today's Washington Post: President-elect Bush made a reassuring choice in picking Paul O'Neill as treasury secretary. The chairman of Alcoa has a reputation as an open-minded pragmatist and a history of extraordinary success in both business and government.

All that flying was for a good cause
The Saturday evening helicopter flights were done to benefit sufferers of neurofibromatosis, a disease that causes tumors to grow inside and outside the body. For young Kenny Loken of Juneau, they grow behind his eyes and for the past three years doctors have had to remove the tumors so they don't damage his brain.

We must manage Tongass wisely
Special interests cynically lobby to keep the Tongass National Forest off the roadless list for U.S. national forests. These interests profit from the same policies that have been the norm in our nation's national forests and other public lands. They have enriched themselves at the public's expense for years, aided and abetted by greedy politicians and complacent bureaucrats.
