Mel Adkins from Nevada comments (Nov. 7) on the money he spent coming to Alaska in 2002 as somehow justifying a road north. Actually...
In his letter of Nov. 7, Mr. Mel Adkins bemoans the cost of traveling by ferry to Alaska. Sure, with a vehicle and stateroom it can be spendy, but I think it's all...
...Connecticut deer. After all, you can't hunt deer in Connecticut with a gun. The state banned that many years ago, so Connecticut is totally overrun by skinny road-running deer. Is this a joke? Well, maybe. Mel Adkins Sparks, Nev.
...wolves are not household pets; they are predators who will kill and eat anything when hungry. And as far as hunting a predator for a good reason by air, do you really think the wolves care? I mean, dead is dead. Mel Adkins Sparks, Nev.
...probably the richest state in the country, full of well-heeled people with nothing else to do but stick their noses into your business. I love Alaska and no group will ever stop me or others like me from coming here. Mel Adkins Sparks, Nev.
...residents. One more thing about the traffic this may generate: the Mantanuska holds 88 cars, so only every six days would this road have a big traffic jam. I love Alaska - wish I was younger; I would move here. Mel Adkins Sparks, Nev.
...to me, but after hearing from the good people of Juneau that hate the idea and why, I have now changed my view. An ugly road cut along Lynn Canal would spoil the beauty of it forever, so "Bravo Juneauites." Mel Adkins Sparks, Nevada
