Whether trapping muskrat on a New England golf course, wandering the Arizona desert with his father, or counting sockeye in Yakutat, Mike Freeman looks for - and finds - the wonderful in the natural world. To read "Neither Mountain nor River: Fathers, Sons, and an Unsettled Faith" is to immerse yourself in a wide swath of America, and to appreciate its sometimes harsh beauty.
The first thing I did as the new managing editor of the Capital City Weekly was to get out a detailed map of Southeast Alaska. Despite the name of this publication, we serve more than 30 communities around the region, and though I've lived in Juneau for more than two decades, I was a little hazy on the locations of a few of those places.
Life is about change. That old adage "change is constant" is so true. Annoying, but true nonetheless. I tend to like change. It keeps things from getting dull. Some have said that I'm predictable. I suppose I am in some circumstances. For example, when I go to lunch at nearly any Juneau restaurant, they all know my beverage of choice is iced tea with lots of ice and no lemon. One time a new server at a place I dine at quite frequently brought me tea with lots of lemons and no ice. She was sweet, the tea was not.
I love Libby Bakalar's blog "One Hot Mess," (http://onehotmessalaska.blogspot.com/). It's not immediately apparent why. Demographically, we have little in common. I am not a super smart brash woman from New York who juggles career aspirations after having created life ... twice. (We do share a certain socio-economic status and good hair). Regardless, it's within the specifics of Libby's blog where you and I can find the universal.

The Juneau School District has concluded our investigation into allegations that on or about May 30-31 of this year a group of incoming senior boys hazed/initiated a group of incoming freshmen boys by paddling them multiple times.
These events were first brought to our attention in early June. At that time the district began an initial investigation, which, due to an active police investigation and summer vacation, was put on hold. When we were informed that the police had concluded their investigation we resumed our efforts.
