Mayor Mike Navarre standing against the Kahtnu surgery center is outrageous. The mayor is supposed to represent the wishes of the people, even though not all the people have been allowed to all speak their minds in this matter. It has long been the feeling among locals that if you get sick go to the...

A commonly held misconception is that members of the CPGH, Inc. Board of Directors derive a fiscal benefit from their service to the hospital. Another is that being a "self-appointed" board means that new board members are pre-selected from a group of friends, cronies or business partners. Both are ...

The proposal to build the Kahtnu surgical center seems to be the doctors' angry response to former hospital CEO Ryan Smith's attempts to muscle them into joining the hospital staff.  As one health-care provider put it, Ryan was trying to bring Central Peninsula Hospital into the 21st century as...

After reading Brenda Trefens' comments made in front of the Borough Assembly and community members regarding the CON for Kahtnu's surgical center, I was amazed at her naivity.

Please explain to me how the Borough Assembly can vote on this matter. The Borough owns part of Central Peninsula Hospital, so doesn't that mean there is a conflict of interest in this matter? Every one of the Assembly members should have excused themselves from this vote for that reason! Central Pe...

Keystone didn't prove to be that smooth a pipeline project, that is going to Texas. I can't explain how thrilled I am with President Obama's veto of such a strategic project for energy security and trade with our Canadian neighbors. This would be a great time to strengthen our relationship with our ...

During the Palin/Parnell era, ADF&G has, with its abundance based ideology (i.e. game ranching), become a socialistic entitlement agency that wants to put a moose/caribou in every hunter’s freezer — regardless of conservation principles or hunting ethics. To make matters worse, the BOG is ag...

Thank you so much for all of the hospitality you showed us at Wildwood Correctional Facility this wonderful Christmas season. We know Christmas is a time of giving and worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ. Because of Salvation Army, dozens and dozens of inmate’s children will get a gift from their dad...

Since when, Ms. Hartman, does CPGH have the power to “reinstate a mill levy on service area residents” as presented in the draft resolution that was made available at the Soldotna Council meeting last week? Last I looked these powers rested with the borough assembly. Ms. Hartman, Soldotna City C...
