Doctor Fermento: Play your cards right to drink safe

Wed, 08/20/2014 - 5:50am
When's the last time you've been cut off or even thrown out of a bar? Have you ever been denied entrance into an establishment because a bouncer or one of the staff felt that you were too intoxicated to enter? Have you ever been turned down from buying liquor at a grog shop because you were underage? Back in my early drinking days, when I did more firing for effect than drinking good craft beer for the flavor, those events earned me bragging rights.

Meals with Midgi: Homemade is definitely better

Wed, 08/20/2014 - 5:41am
It is mid-August, and the rainy season in Juneau is well underway. Truthfully, it's always rainy season in Juneau. We live in a rainforest. If rain is in the name of the area in which you live, chances are you're going to get rain. Southeast Alaska gets an abundance of the wet stuff, and I love it. Unlike many of my friends who live here, I really do enjoy the rain. I enjoy the cool, fresh air. I enjoy the blanket of clouds that dance in and out of the evergreen trees. I even enjoy the foggy days. It's like a treasure hunt to me. Fog reminds me of mystery and romance and hidden treasures or secrets. It tells its own story.
