As a retired teacher from Kenai Central High School in the early 90s I have noticed the effect of inflation on the budgets for Kenai Peninsula schools. This past week I attended several legislative hearings in Juneau on school funding.  I was disappointed to find that many House members have di...

The concept of teamwork is ingrained in the framework of our society. We see it in all walks of life, in our businesses, in sports, in political organizations, and more recently, in healthcare.
