As I stood listening to the speakers at the recent groundbreaking ceremony for our new Central Peninsula Hospital Radiation Oncology Center, I got to thinking. The politicians and hospital corporate board members kept slapping themselves on the back for a job well done. They were able to secure an a...

I find it difficult to accept the whining from setnetters about their perceived fiscal peril this year. Last year about four hundred halibut charter captains had their livelihoods ruined when NOAA/NMFS eliminated about a third of the charter fleet.

Many Alaskans are wondering what can or should be done to resolve the decline in king salmon within the Cook Inlet area.

Kenai king salmon austerity has gone too far. King salmon returns are weak in many areas of Alaska this year. The early and late run Kenai kings appear weak as well. Let's save the "why this is happening" for a different discussion. What should we do about this Kenai king salmon shortage? Should we:...
