Letter: A day of rest from cruise ships is good for Juneau

A lot has been said about the Saturday free day from large cruise ships. What’s missing from the conversation is that a day of rest is important and I think we have forgotten that as a community. A day to spend with friends and family, a day to go on a picnic without long streams of traffic and a day to enjoy all that Juneau has to offer.

When I grew up, all the stores were closed so everyone got a day of rest. I think it’s a good thing to have Saturday free of all the noise, congestion and traffic. I am a retired teacher, electrician, small business owner and have lived in Juneau for 40 years.
