Lake issue an example of what's going on

...the Fourth of July Parade (a family outing). And we, the public, seem to be allowing these prudes to shut down our rights to land- and water-use. It's got to stop, and we need to change the people in office. Doug Cooper Juneau

Leaders must be held responsible for choices

...balance a budget. This high school will be the straw that breaks the public's back. It may not happen overnight, but soon after. We the public need to hold these people at the top responsible for their poor choices. Doug Cooper Juneau
