Dogs can help with bears

I cannot disagree more with Matt Keopple's letter regarding dogs and bears. My two labs frequently run off black bears on my property and have even successfully tangled...
Pepper spray better method than dogs

...successfully deterring a bear should it attack. This is what wildlife experts recommend, also. But if you want to be stupid and don't care about yourself or your dog, natural selection will take its course, so go for it. Matt Keopple Juneau

...associated with building improved state facilities. To say the road would benefit only the tourists is ludicrous. Matt Keopple is a Juneau resident who works at the state Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.
A rebuttal on road arguments

...because of the expense. Did Erik ever stop to consider that there are people who may actually enjoy the scenery a long drive like this could give someone? Let's stop being so afraid of a road and build the future. Matt Keopple Juneau
Get facts before opining on access

...inadequate services and less than adequately educated children coming out of our public schools because of negligent city spending and inadequate hiring practices. Cut the niceties and put that money back into the necessities. Matt Keopple Juneau
