GARA: I'm Back and Reporting for Duty Sir/Ma'am!
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Sorry I've been out of touch for a bit. As you may know, I had to leave Juneau a few days into special session for surgery, which turned out great. I'm on my way home tomorrow - to the relief of my nephews who've been humoring me, and listening to me gripe about the Red Sox for two and a half weeks. They're Yankee fans. Booo!
Had the wreck of a special session not collapsed I would have pushed my rehab and flown back to Juneau earlier. But, the special session ended after only a few days, so there was nothing to fly back for, unless I wanted to sit in the Finance Committee room alone, which at least would have been more peaceful than a regular meeting.

It's long. Skim through to see the subjects that interest you. I felt a short summary wouldn't give you any useful information on our work, and the good, bad and ugly of what happened this session. I preferred the good, and worked against the bad and ugly. At least I tried.
I look forward to finally getting home! As always, let me know if we can help or if you have any questions.
