Is building the road progress?

Chris Watson's letter on Nov. 22 is both interesting and amusing. His reason for the road being built is progress. Who can be against that...
Why gas prices don't drop faster

I'd like to take a crack at answering Chris Watson's excellent question (from Nov. 30) of why Juneau isn't seeing gas prices drop as quickly as the rest of the country. The...
Politicians, leave our Permanent Fund alone

...spoke out on Election Day and voted that he and the Legislature could not touch it and yet here he is taking it anyway totally against what we declared. I, for one, cannot wait for the next election to vote him out. Chris Watson Juneau
