Letter: Housing action needed

...housing.My dad used to say, "Your actions are so loud, I can't hear what you are saying." Looks like we have members of our Assembly who talk all about new housing until they have an opportunity to help make it happen.Denny DeWitt,Juneau
Letter: It is about the money

...taxpayers money by utilizing changing technology.When the folks that buy paper by the carload and ink by the barrel start yelling with righteous indignation, you can bet it IS about the money, this time its your tax dollar.Denny DeWitt Juneau

Alaska should get a better return on its investments in K-12 education

...Where are the measurable results? If the statement that students are getting less is true, maybe the question to ask is why. The facts certainly do not support the time-worn argument that "funding for education declines." Denny DeWitt Juneau
