I have listened to what Fred Sturman is saying. Yes, he is a little folksy but he sure makes a lot of sense to me. The changes he has proposed on his web site ( are a lot more enlightening than what I see on ...

There is an outstanding candidate in the Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor's run-off race on October 25th. Fred Sturman is a self-made man who by his wits and hard work succeeded where many others failed. He has a doctorate degree in Common Sense from the University of Hard Knocks. He never took a cours...

I would like to thank the Performing Arts Society for connecting Soldotna Elementary to the UAF string and piano faculty as they visited our town over the weekend. As I watched our students enrapt by the sounds of Schubert, I was reminded of my own experiences of hearing professional musicians live ...

Yes, the moose population is in trouble on the peninsula but there are a number of things causing the decline, like the habitat going from good to bad, overharvest from hunting legally and illegally, and motor vehicles killing moose on the highways in the winter. Also, you have animal predators like...

There was a cow moose and her two calves nearby. The cow was on one side of the Spur and the calves were on the ...

During my years of public service, it has always surprised me, that less than 30% of the voters come out to vote. And that includes a mail in effort for the South Peninsula Hospital service area some years ago. My parents, who emigrated in the 1920s, understood, not only how precious the United Stat...

Mrs. Heath's 2nd/3rd Grade Class from Nikiski North Star Elementary School would like to express their thanks to the mayoral candidates who kindly responded to their letters. The class wrote to the candidates to ask them what they would do if they were to become the new borough mayor. We enjoyed rea...

I have known Mike and Fred (mayor candidates for the KPB) for a number of years. Both serve a role in our community but the contrast in style and experience is significant. Fred polarizes and that is needed to get a movement mobilized and before the public. Mike de-polarizes which makes government w...

This letter is in support for Fred Sturman, and a loving rebuttal of Marion Nelson's view of Navarre (Letter to the editor, Oct. 12)  and his supposedly wonderful past service to our state which seems to me, and as history shows, to actually be a service for self only. Sure Fred like myself mig...
